    Being like most probly bored out of my small mind. What would salmon fishers say was the best conservation thing that has happened in the not to distant past. To my mind it was stopping the sale of rod caught salmon. I used to take what fish I required and return the rest. Used to get laughed at...

    Maybe we will be able to fish the autumn run of sea trout in my local river . This has got , to my mind , most of the ingredients for sea trout. Colin.

    Lo all, Hope the turkey & Xmas pud sweats have abated.. Quick question, I need to fill 3 x Danielsson H5D 11fourteen spools with backing and have been considering using 40 or 50lbs Power Pro. Reason for the 40/50 lbs breaking strain is I'm looking ahead somewhat and may consider a Norway...

    A wee pair tied up today. All over the place with my choice of tail colour but hopefully the fish don't mind. I should have made the front black half of the body a bit bigger too.

    Just see that loop are doing a limited addition one of these reels for the year of the salmon, cracking reel and great to see they are donating 200 pound off each sale to the cause, my point being is I think they should run other items of there tackle with this ie clothing etc Im sure a few...

    Yeah, alright we all know what it’s usually like but Forum members might want to know that tonight’s episode includes two items about the Missing Salmon project and the trial about using deer carcasses/bones being placed in the river to boost nutrients. Who knows it might even be a useful...

    I watched a show called Peppa the Pig with some little people. It seemed like good insight into your heart and mind.

    Twenty five past four may be a little early in the day for it. I am however out in about half an hour and suspect I will be in no fit state by midnight for posting niceties on a Forum. With this in mind I will say it now. May you all have a happy, healthy, prosperous and happy is a very...

    Many many moons ago, probably early 60's, on a family holiday to Devon, one of our daily outings was to Lynmouth. Fresh in my parents mind because of a flooding disaster a few years earlier, if my mind isn't playing tricks on me. My abiding memory of the day was of traveling up the extremely...

    I ordered a rod from the above via their website yesterday. This morning I get a phone message saying its not stock and will take 7 to 10 days to get. Ok it was a sale item but why have it advertised on their site and let me order it and take my money if they haven't got one in stock? I wouldn't...

    As well as having a statutory duty to maintain and improve fisheries the EA in England (and I believe the NRW in Wales) is supposed to deliver an environmental protection function that includes policing and protecting our rivers and water courses. The EA is supposed to oversee and monitor...

    Shrimp and Rabbit. One for a Sea Pool, take a Slob too I reckon. Went a bit heavy on the dubbing loop mind. . . . Added a better couple of pictures.

    Not long in the door from the first night at the seatrout, a sudden (and un forecast) plummet in temps killed it stone dead. 9 degrees does not make for good fishing at night! 3 wee schoolies landed but there were a few big boys about. Mate had the hooks on his snake straightened by one! Had a...
