    Just wondered if anyone else had read the article in todays Herald about the infamous Dr. Jaffa and his views on the shortage of sea trout. Blames a lot of it on the ending of the 3 mile non fishing round the U.K.. Also mentions that salmon farms may have had problems with the sea lice. Seams to...

    Hi guys, any idea where I could try and fish again on the search for salmon?..... I have been looking at Hesleyside on the North, does anyone have an opinion on this water. Also been looking at that Haughton castle too.....but unsure about any of it as I have zero experience of the area and...

    What do you reckon the best all rounder is lens wise? I'm thinking of getting a new pair of polorized for fishing. The ones I have at the minute are 'sunrise' and they're ok but is there a better all round option?
  9. Sea Trout Fishing
    This was certainly a "fish of a thousand casts"... Not huge but most welcome, returned after a quick snap as they are getting rare round my way

    The JC is the first of a very nice new cape from AM Fly Tying - out of interest this is what Victorians thought of as a really good JC - nice round eyes in ivory white - NOT the dense coffee coloured ones. Dx

    Last season I started to use Rapala's on my local river more and more (Floating, Team Esko and Husky Jerks mainly). I usually fish them down and across and let them come round in the current or with a slow retrieve, and had some success...however, I noticed when the water was particularly up...

    If you tie flies and haven't considered joining a swap take a look at February's swap. Looking for three more people to round off the set.

I was out one morning nymphing for trout as salmon were scarce with low water prevailing for long periods. I was...
