    If you haven't been into the TOTM thread for February as yet then can I encourage you do so otherwise you may miss out on seeing an amazing selection of 30 Scottish fly patterns tied to a very high standard. Also, as the title states, the poll is now open and so can I encourage you while there...

    I believe it opens tomorrow. What other Irish salmon fisheries are open other than the Drowes.
  3. Tie of the month
    As I'm sure you are all aware TOTM 2019 was my first year of tying salmon flies and giving the competition a go. As a result I learned so much from you all that I genuinely feel my tying moved forward significantly more than it would have otherwise. Mind you as the saying goes the more you...
  4. Classified Wanted
    I am looking for a 5ft to 7ft trout fly rod. It will need to be for a 2 or 3 weight line. I would like split cane but open to suggestions? I do not need anything too expensive as this is for very occasional use. Thanks

    Am I reading the new regs right and we can now use barbless doubles on rivers open for catch and release?

    What do you guys use for small tube trebles...about sizes 10-14.... I tried a few types this season and most were too easy to open up to be honest. I'd hate to lose a fish due to hook failure....

    I note the draft regulations include the Lower Shannon for catch and release. Must be a while since Castleconnell was open. Will be interesting to see what prospects this will bring for 2020.

    Ocean salmon opened up a while back and not a single report of a recreational fish caught. :doh: Halibut season will open up in a few more days, but in the meantime I caught the big boy.

    I want to tell you all that your performance under stress does not go unnoticed. With the Brexit and countless other pressing social matters at hand daily you are doing a wonderful job of keeping it all in check here. I'd also like you to know that in America we don't live in a stress free...

    Usually use a 24" Gye net but have found it's not that suitable for resting a decent sized fish in prior to release. I'm fishing the Hampshire Avon, steep banks, deep water, so not really suitable for wading in to hold the fish. I've decided to get a much larger net and rubber seems to be the...

    In the 10+ years I have been a member at our club, the reservoirs have never even been close to being this low. Had some brilliant days on this water including some with forum members so sorry guys not happening anytime soon. At least the pubs still open :)
