Wanted as above a SIMMS sling pack the older Brown coloured version, small enough for items for a few hours fishing.
Preferably in very good condition.
if you have one you longer need and wish to pass on please pm me.
My tying of a lovely original belonging to Arno Geldenhuys from South Africa.
A huge fly for me nowadays (apart from the big hybrid speys, Nicholsons etc I've tied recently).
Added the claret hackles into the wing as they're in every version I know. Much more 'full dressed' in style than most...
I've been trying to find one of these rods for sale in all the usual places but to no avail. I want to get a decent switch/small Spey type rod and because I've got the 10'6" single hander version of this rod which I absolutely love, I thought the double hander version would fit the bill...

The drag at the lowest setting on the Mark 2 reel is much stiffer...
I am looking for the discontinued version of DANIELSONN HD 9/13 reel (with a large brake adjustment knob. Not the HD5 version) for a friend of mine.
He owns a few spare pools and would like to buy a complete reel.
Is there anyone who could be interested to sell his salmon reel ? Or do...
In anticipation for the dropping of our rivers here at home, I tied this Thunder and Lightning variation to swing on a dry line.
Definitely not the full dressed version, more simplistic and reduced to not clutter the swing.
Tied in hand on a #4 vintage Code iron, this pattern does offer the...
