I managed a wee walk this morning and couldn`t believe how low this stretch of the Clyde is? because part of the banking was washed away the main flow of this section has changed "first photo" and in the "second photo" looks like this has been an old river crossing? I`ve walked this section for...
I'm posting this request on behalf of my dad, Richard Hewitt. He collects vintage fishing tackle and has the attached photograph in his collection.
It says that the man's name is John, and the photo was taken at Aberdalgie on the River Earn near Perth. Does anybody recognise the man...
My very first Thunder and Lightning but I'm still disappointed to have allowed the head to get away from me and at some point not noticing that I'd dragged the top few wing fibres back. Generally though I'm quite pleased with it. The final photo is just at an angle to catch the light better on...
So after a couple of attempts I created a body that I like last night going from photo 1 to photo 2 with smaller wing area and slightly shorter throat. I also didn't like the flattened body hackle and so on advice stood it back up.

The photo of the fly is taken from the...

I've been doing a lot of walking and casting practise this week but at least I've had chance to do a bit of tidying up.
The first photo is ~1/4 of a trampoline frame retrieved from the middle of the river. Most of the rest of the trampoline has been retrieved from the river by others but ~1/2...

Every now and then I have a problem when previewing a post to ensure photo has been attached OK. The photo appears enormous and you can only see a very small part of the picture. Any ideas as to what has happened? Perhaps to my settings?
