    Hi guys So I was fishing in Skjern River (we're allowed to fish in Denmark !) this past week, and met an older guy, who showed me a reel. He claims it was around 3000 USD, for a second hand reel ! I didn't get the brand, I think it was american. It was very wide, relatively low diameter with an...

    Just been watching a bit of lock down fishing on YouTube. Watched a few anglers catching good fish but struggling with using left hand up and winding right handed. The rod was constantly being swapped from left to right. This looked really awkward to me. I have always had my rod and reel set up...

    John Norris are having a sale of the above at the moment. Anyone got an opinion on them? I fancy a 10' #6 for use on the Wear, overhead casting where possible and single handed speycasting where necessary. I've got a #7 11' switch rod, would like something a bit lighter in the hand and on the...
  4. Traditional/Fully Dressed Patterns
    Another one tied in hand - an early gaudy fly (2/0) from John Kirkbride's 'The Northern Angler' from 1837 - I'm really not good at tying in hand and find it really tough - not sure if I want to put in the time to get better at it! (though I think we'll all have lots of time on our hands over the...

    Anyone know where I can get hold of one of these even second hand ?
  11. Hunting & Shooting
    I must admit I like the idea of a wild boar drive up Birdcage Walk, Prince's Street or even St Patrick's Street though I doubt the porkies would get so out of hand over here ... yet another canary-in-the-mine warning that we have over reached Boar wars: how wild hogs are trashing European...

    Looking to put together a light double hand setup for the summer. Torn between buying a used, well regarded older rod such as a 2013 guideline lxi, or something like a new Loop Q, for the same money. Obviously the Loop is considered a budget rod, whereas the lxi was £700 rod in its time. Does...

I’m going to treat him to a Shakespeare oracle switch 11ft #8/9 as they have great reviews and been recommended...

    Recntly i placed an order for this rod, now being a single hander with a fighting butt, i have asked them to make it a bit longer on fighting butt for my bottom hand, as i intend to use as summer low water rod mostly speycasting and if i ever get back in to the seatrout. I have emailed B&W on...

    I am left-handed and wind my fly reels with my right. I notice however that many (the majority it seems) right handed members of my local club wind with their right hand. Is this just local to my area? I would imagine that for most the greatest effort in playing a fish would fall to your rod...
