    I've been spotting posts where remarks about low water are showing up. Just saw another on Gary's post to TTOM thread and thought better to post here than hijack the fly thread. Remembering the past few seasons that your rivers suffered under low flow conditions I can only hope you see a turn...

    Hi I mentioned this in another thread. I’ve accepted the fact my 2 weeks in Tenerife in July ain’t gonna happen. Last year I spent the first 2 weeks in July in Tenerife and then took the young lad up the Helmsdale for a week to fish the town water the last week in July for the grilse. We had a...

    Well I was. Here's a tale from the past to raise a few eyebrows. Banned for practising catch and release. What a badge to hold, perhaps unique! Perhaps illustrates where we were to where we are now. I'm not even a huge C&R advocate. I still take the odd fish for myself or for friends if...

    Just passed 2 guys fishing on the River Nith in Dumfries. Coming from Locharbriggs turn right on to A75, third bridge, pool on the right (North side). Not sure who's water this belongs to but surely this shouldn't be happening. Cheers Diarmid.

    John Norris are having a sale of the above at the moment. Anyone got an opinion on them? I fancy a 10' #6 for use on the Wear, overhead casting where possible and single handed speycasting where necessary. I've got a #7 11' switch rod, would like something a bit lighter in the hand and on the...

    After reading the thread on that monster from Finland it got me thinking. We still have fish that size in our rivers. What is the biggest Atlantic salmon that you have seen with your own eyes? Doesn’t have to caught or landed could even been netted. The biggest I’ve ever seen was last season...

    Hi, hoping someone can answer a question for me. I'm curious about low water hooks, when we are using such a variety of density of polyleaders does having a slightly thinner gauge hook really impact the depth at which the fly is fished?

    I realised every question I was asking google was answered on this forum So I had to join and was so pleased to read such positive comments and input- I normally stay clear of forums as they seem to bring out the worse in people- but not here!! I’ve fished for about 35 years, luckily both...

    1st thing is to degrease. I'm no expert when it comes to dying but this is a fairly straight forward job. Some hot water in the bottom of the sink with some fairy liquid. Agitate the materials and give them a good swirl. I let them steep then swirled around some more... Rinse thoroughly in...

    An amiable chap fishing the Delnashach water of the Aven came and spoke with myself (Mick)and pal (Brian). It was my pal Willie Forbe's water on the A beat of that river which was not good qual water but was deemed to be the 'assault course' ! He said he would give me his phone number to...
