    275grain integrated shooting head and running line. Boxed, brand new. Tried for 5 minutes in the river next to the house. Great line but not quite what I need. €€€SOLD€€€

    Well I was. Here's a tale from the past to raise a few eyebrows. Banned for practising catch and release. What a badge to hold, perhaps unique! Perhaps illustrates where we were to where we are now. I'm not even a huge C&R advocate. I still take the odd fish for myself or for friends if...
  3. Hairwing Fly Patterns
    Ayrshire's naming of the Garry Dog, the original and a modern Scandi version. I used the original pretty much exclusively when I was young fishing the River Irvine. Simple yet really effective, I'm liking these old flies more and more.
  4. Favourite Beats & Rivers
    I have posted a short slideshow on YouTube describing the River Ure and its main beats.
  5. Irish Shrimp Fly Patterns
    Nothing new and I know I've posted it before but anyway! I first tied this fly in the late 1990's or very early 2000's. I tied it as an Irish version of the Kylie shrimp that was very popular in Trout & Salmon and other fishing magazines at the time. I was looking through some of my old...

    I’m still a newbie when it comes to salmon fishing and only started fly fishing for salmon 2 seasons ago and am now totally addicted. Anyway I intend to go on lots of fishing trips around the world as I get more time and money to do so and as such have started taking note of the places I would...

    Just passed 2 guys fishing on the River Nith in Dumfries. Coming from Locharbriggs turn right on to A75, third bridge, pool on the right (North side). Not sure who's water this belongs to but surely this shouldn't be happening. Cheers Diarmid.
  9. Irish Shrimp Fly Patterns
    Over the last few weeks of lock down,[without the bars] I have enjoyed the many tyings of Irish Shrimp Flies, am I right in thinking a lot of these flies are area or river specific, if so what pattern would you lads and lassies consider to be the best all rounder and why? Just curious. John

    In these strange times we often look and think back of better times, and for many of us these are the times spent by the river. Here's one I remember well, a big old 'croc' that had been in the river a while, becoming quite feisty and cantankerous! Enjoy and stay safe everyone :)!

    With fishing and shooting off the menu at present with this poxy Chinese virus, I haven't heard a shot gun fire off for 10days or more ? f.e.b's and rabbits etc are safe as houses ? My question to forum members on here have you every witnessed a goosander or cormorant being...

    I’m thinking of spinning for sea trout from the shore as a Danish colleague of mine had convinced me to give it a try. I’m just wondering what the legalities are with this in Scotland. If you know of a river that has decent sea trout runs how close to the river mouth are you allowed to fish? Do...

    Well, what a difference a week has made, things have progressed even further than even I anticipated. There can be NO ambiguity about the decision on wither to fish in this current 3 week lockdown. BUT, and i,m surprised it happened so soon, I,ve already seen a post on Social media on Thursday...

    My dad managed this stunning 9lb fish on the River Thurso yesterday. Great timing before the lockdown
  18. Welsh Rivers
    Hi all and especially those who fish the Welsh Dee, I thought I’d get things kicked off for 2020. Anyone been out, I know the river was a bit high for the 17th - but anyone had a go? After the multiple high water / flood conditions (over 2+ metre on Manley Hall gauge a number of times) how...

    The Helmsdale is a river that has been on my bucket list for some time. It just epitomises the dream Scottish highland spring venue for me. What do you know? I've been invited up to fish the river by a good friend who has clearly taken pity on my plight and if this bl**dy plague doesn't confine...
