    Hi, I am looking to purchase a 10/11 size of salmon reel for my 50th birthday and don’t mind spending up to £900 for it. It would get used on the Tay and also trips to Norway where it needs to hold a fair amount of backing. What would be the recommendations ?

    Just thought I would give a mention to a decent Chinese eBay seller. (no relation :) ) Praise where it is due. I ordered 10m of Polyolefin 2-1 2mm clear shrink tubing from seller "bestboss2011" (£2.94) It was sent out very quickly and tracking was provided all the way. Only hold up was at...

    Really struggling tying a fly on a Waddington shank then pulling hook and sleeve on without damaging fly. Am I supposed to put hook and sleeve on first? If so, how do you hold it in the vice. Anyone have any tips? Thanks, Patrick

    Hugo Ross's shop in Wick is up for sale. Would be lovely to think someone buys it and retains it as an angling / shooting store but I won't hold my breath.
  11. Fly Tying Topics
    Decided to venture a punt on some of the ultra-cheap hooks available online (following success with the carp chod hook for intruders at a peanuts price - see other thread) Got these this morning, don't know if they'd hold an angry oversize springer but look ok for a spot of summer grilse...

    What lighters do people like for melting down the inner tube? I've been using cheap disposable and wondering if a jet type is better as the flame will be more horizontal -- I like to hold my flame above the tube and melt it down assisted by gravity.
