  1. Hairwing Fly Patterns
    These colours are a great combination for coloured water. I first tied this around 2013 and had forgot about it until looking through old photos on the computer. I remember using this pattern one day in dirty water and the brown trout tore it to shreds! I can't remember how many of them I...

    Does anyone know if the BOGOF offer at Helmsdale tackle is still on or finished now? I cant remember if Ron had it on the front page of the website?
  3. Fly Tying Topics
    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...

    I realise this is an awful pic, but it is the best I could get with my phone. It is a long belly Spey line approx 75ft head with integrated running line. The head is a vanilla yellow colour and the running line is sky blue. It is a nice supple line like the Carron. I was given this line by a...

    Hi, I bought this fly from somewhere a few year back and have had really good success on it in low water. Do you know if it has a name, wish I could remember where I got it! Thanks

    There has been a lot of interest in fishing the Dionard on the Forum in the past and it has been difficult to get a week. However, things have changed with new owners this year and there MAY be some availability where before there was none. The letting is now being handled by George Goldsmith in...
  10. River Tweed Reports & News
    Just curious, can anyone explain why this beat appears to have all 6 rods available through most if not all of November? I haven't fished Tweed for a few years now, but as far as I remember this beat was always heavily booked up? Can't believe everyone is disillusioned to this extent with the...

    When I was a little chap reading was a terrible struggle. I'm dyslexic which as everyone now knows is snowflake speak for lazy and stupid (well, that's what my teachers said anyway). I hated reading knowing I was stupid. But, mum and dad knew if they brought me books about fishing I'd devour...

  13. North Atlantic Salmon Conservation
    Just to remember Orri & others I wanted to ask all to give a minute of their time today to remember a fine, gentle man who did so much for salmon conservation? Yes, it's a year already since he lost his most important battle. I knew Orri only slightly from meeting him in Iceland and working...

    A bit of craic from last weekend, you always remember your first fish of the season, though some are more memorable thanks others, and some are just meant to be! ?

    I was wondering could anyone put something positive into this, i.e. have you caught fish when the grue is on or just off the water. We've not had the problem for a year or two but I can remember odd occasions waiting for grue to clear towards lunchtime and I can't remember catching a fish when...

    After seeing some old photos last week I was reminiscing about my late father which got me thinking about what I called ‘The great Salmon slaughter of 1986’ where in September down on the lower Ribble hundreds and hundreds of Salmon were shoaled up in the Preston area and hundreds were caught...

    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.
