As many of you may have grasped, my spinning gear and techniques were left only slightly wanting after the early Tweed Jaunt a week or so back.
So, there's a question to two that I have in regard to lures and rods.
1stly, are the copies of the Vision 110 type of lures worth having(predictably...
if you are wanting to watch a really interesting topical fish farm v wild fish facts, it is actually unbelievable what they are trying to hide. take time to watch it.
Type in "Salmon Confidential" on you tube
while reading some of the posts the page skips up and down while ads change from vacuum cleaner to watch sales ,even as I type its doing it ! frustrating to say the least ,am I the only one this happens to ?
I have just got a 2nd hand reel with a line on it that I wonder if somebody can identify it. All I know is that it is 9/10.
I am thinking it might be some type of Airflo line as the tips come in an Airflo wallet.

From Ephemera (1850), tied at 2/0. This is a great illustration of the fact that dee type wings were universal prior to mixed wings/full dresseds arriving in Scotland (my own river Eden used Dun Turkeys well into the 20thC - all of which had more or less dee type wings).

Good evening to all,
