    This piece of branch appeared over the winter in my river. It is no size at all and might be 2 inches thick at its thickest point. I had a sit down by the river yesterday evening and could not believe the amount of juvenile fish life under this one small branch. A whole variety of sizes from...

    A proper GEORGIAN salmon fly tied in hand... Perhaps the ugliest fly I've tied. The hook is about 2 1/2 inches - 3 inches was specified but I didn't have a big enough age appropriate ugly hook. Dx

    A hard season on the River Teith has gave me my 2nd fish there of the season. I moved my efforts down to Stirling and was chuffed to get this licer late on last night. Both fish returned safely after a quick snap. Coloured fish was 30 inches and the licer was 26 inches.

    Monday 30th September was the last day of the season on Findhorn. As usual we set off early in the morning in expectation as this spate river river was running at an acceptable 7 inches. On arrival we could see there were plenty of coloured salmon leaping (sideways) in the first long pool. We...

    Hello, I'm trying to justify buying travel rods (I have 1, but its pointless without a second). I brought a 15 ft 3 piece to Norway from Canada twice with no issues/charges by using a ski bag and loading it with rods/gear (1 checked bag). tube for my 6 piece DH rod: 34 inches tube for my 3...
  6. Trout Fishing
    Anyone else make it out today ? Got to the river at 4 pm, not ideal timing but at least the rain had stopped. Big water but amazingly clear. In the couple of hours fished, managed three trout of 10 to 12 inches and missed a few. Nice to get out on the river, hopefully will be a bit warmer...

    Hi There. I’ve just bought a pair of these waders, they fit well in the stocking foot and legs with not too much excess in the lower legs but comfortable. My question is the chest is snug, with approximately two or three inches spare at the front with a thin fleece underneath which is all I wear...

    Francis version (but with a claret throat - done it a few times with the specified blue and don't like it - there ARE versions with claret so I feel it's justified) - somewhat smaller than the specified '3 inches or more in length'. Dx

    Drove down to the Park yesterday. Its about 1.5 hours drive to the trailhead. Hiked about 16 miles R/T. Caught a lot of fish, all on dry flies, most 15-18 inches. One was 22-23 inches, but I fumbled it back in before the pic. Le sigh. Saw a mama black bear and two cubs right along the...

    My mates fishing Russia in June and he's been told to take some German Snaeldas with a blue hackle. Does this look about right as i have never tied them before, this ones on a 22mm brass with an overall length of 3 inches. Also does anyone have any other snaelda patterns that have done well in...

    I have used an 8wt SSVT now for two seasons and love it. I have just bought the same line in 9 wt from a fellow forum member which as you would expect is (at first glance) identically tapered - except for the last couple of inches. On the 8wt the loop is formed after the line has tapered to...
