  3. Running Lines
    Something out of box thinking. Ordered 60lb spool of this: Robot Check Feels bit like Sawada flat beam, slightly oval and feels nice to hands. Aiming to use it all my reels next summer. A guy I know used this whole last summer and said that worked just like Sawada. With that price it is worth...

    I won't lie I'm stressed. I've not cast a fly for a salmon since March and the rivers in my part are devoid of both water and fish. Now I'm old enough to have seen this all this before: I remember the summer of 1976. Actually talking of 1976 1975 was also a very dry year and the parallels are...

    Got our usual trip to the Finn booked up for July, but we are keen to use one or two of the six days we have to try a new river. Can anyone recommend a river anywhere in Ireland that produces good sized summer Salmon? Must be available on a day ticket basis! All help appreciated Cheers

  10. European Rivers
    hello, I planned a road trip with Mrs Artza this summer (10 to 20 August 2019), and I would like to take advantage of my stay in this beautiful country to dip my flies on 1 to 2 fishing days, therefore I have to be efficient on these 2 days to try to catch the maximum of salmon.

    What are your fishing plans for the new year? I dont have anything big planned this year, just a lot of local. Id like to hike into 8 different alpine lakes this coming summer. Last summer I made it to 6 different lakes, with 3 of those lakes done twice. There are some 400 lakes in the...

    Is fresh water the only stimulus or would the fish colour up in saltwater if they arrived at the coast a couple of months ago but didn't enter the river? Would they colour up if they enter the estuary but don't run into the river? I'm asking because of the unique conditions this year where...
  14. North Atlantic Salmon Conservation
    After reading a number of scientific papers, I'm at least convinced it's real enough. Obviously, if this trend continues, and I've seen nothing to suggest it won't. Warming Seas and Summer Heatwaves are going to have a serious effect on everyday life. Certainly, it's going to have an effect on...

    Just wondering what others use as their setup end of spring into summer. Do you for example use full floating line with sinking poly leader or intermediate. And what length of nylon or fluorocarbon? Are droppers a good idea at this time?

    My question is how to hook a salmon that takes a trolled fly? Some context: A few years ago I was fishing a loch in the summer, trolling flies behind a little boat. The most successful method was to troll a slim fly just below the surface on a long fly line at night. We tried using a rapala...
