    I still can't get to sit at the vice due to the wee woman taking over my room for an office :censored::censored:, so here's a cpl from a few years back, a long and a short tail vertion

    I took these pictures from the webcam at the top of a beat that I rent on the river Otter. The mayfly were much later last year but it was unusual up to a few years ago to have any quantities of mayfly at all. Colin.

    Hi all, Could anyone point me in the direction of some Vulturine guineafowl as I am itching to make some Blue Elvers? I'm aware its become harder to find over the last few years but now my searches are coming up with absolutely nothing! cheers!
  5. Irish Shrimp Fly Patterns
    I first saw this pattern in Peter O'Reilly's book around 20 years ago but had never tried it. Gwelsher sent me some flies one time and there was a flouresc green shrimp among them. I remember using it one evening at the river a few years back when I hooked 5 salmon in a few hours and there were...

  7. Fly Tying Topics
    I just opened a small packet from yesterday's mail to find some beautiful #10 double hooks some for tubes and some for tying onto the hooks themselves. There was also a couple Finn Raccoon in great colors that I lack like Claret and a beauty of a gold orange looking bit. It seems certain that...

    Don't think it's fair to stop anybody buying a rod on the classified page because youv only 20 odd posts it's me that would be sending the money to the person not the other way round so I loss a rod I have been looking for for over 2 years. This is definitely not a fair system youv got...

    A great fly in peaty water, got some original Davie McPhail ones in my box from 25 years ago, this is my shot at it. It was Davie that dyed the wing hair for me last year.

    Ian gordon has just posted a very interesting explanation of why you get good grilse years and good salmon years - but rarely both together. I have heard about the North Atlantic oscillation but didn't understand this particular significance of it. If you are in the same boat, I think its...

    We are very sad to report that our President Mr Bob Dey sadly passed away this afternoon following the effects of a stroke. Bob was taken ill on Monday shortly after taking his wife into hospital for a major operation and was found to have had a severe stroke. Unfortunately he did not...

    I maintain a website and write a blog about Atlantic salmon fishing on the Miramichi River in New Brunswick, Canada. One of the river's most famous fishermen was the late Ted Williams, aka The Splendid Splinter. Some baseball fans will remember that he hit over .400 in three years of a career...

    I recently watched a program which showed the actual magnetic north pole positions over the last 100 years. It is moving at a very fast rate and has moved almost as much in 20 years as it had in the previous 100 years and is heading to Siberia. We keep on being told that Atlantic salmon use this...
