    Well, I just strained off last July's Blackcurrant Gin. First time I've tried that variant. I'd thoroughly recommend it to anyone. A lot less 'blackcurranty' than expected and actually rather nicely spicey. Naturally empirical trials are ongoing....see you all on Thursday:thumb::lol: All...

    I like this on the dropper at certain times or on the point in lower water when weed can be a problem if you fish too deep. I like a long hackle but in some publications it's a lot shorter. Anyone know the recommended size in the original ? Colin.

    I sometimes fish with a chap I know on the bottom Tweed. He's about the fishiest person I've ever met, by that I mean he's just one of those blokes who not only does everything well but he also just sort of is immersed in it when he's fishing, hard to explain but it's like he's one of the...
