    This piece of branch appeared over the winter in my river. It is no size at all and might be 2 inches thick at its thickest point. I had a sit down by the river yesterday evening and could not believe the amount of juvenile fish life under this one small branch. A whole variety of sizes from...

    Hi All, Here's a quick SBS for the sparkly junction piggy - this is smaller than the one I tied earlier.

    The Solway Firth haaf netters fighting to save a fishing tradition. "Please save us, we're desperate for protection. "We're unique, we're only 30 people. Give us a small quota so that we can continue." I wonder what they consider 'a small quota' and if them, why not others elsewhere!

    Asked for a few flies for trout I wasn't expecting the answer to be 125 and all in small sizes! Having spent so much time trying to hone my salmon flies last year I'd almost forgotten how awkward these wee ones can be - especially as I like to avoid dropping materials purely because of fly...
