    I dyed some natural arctic fox before and it looks dull compared to shop bought stuff. Is there a trick to making it shiny if you will? Thanks.

    Gents, I'm at work just now and making up some bits & bobs in my spare time and wondered if someone could please measure the diameter of the base of these wee fly clip hooks? I making a base for them and can't remember if they are around the 5mm mark? It's just so I can squeeze them into a...
  5. Hunting & Shooting
    It's a strange dichotomy that I go through when I retire one of my dogs from the shooting field or trailing. The sense of loss is always in my mind along with the fact that also the dog will be hopefully going to a better home than the one I can provide it with. In this case I'm talking about...

    I'm in need of a custom rod-bag for a five piece rod. I've had a very good quality custom bag in the past from Ellen Lawrence but from I'm not getting a response from her email address. I wonder is the lady still making rod bags to order and has she changed her email address? Any one else...

    Just wondering if anyone has any idea where you can buy lengths of level tungsten leader as I want to have a go at making my own poly leaders in various lengths. I seem to remember someone on here selling it but a search of the forum doesn't throw up anything.
