    I'll second that !
    Its definitely bought more fish to the net for me too with its very light presentation,only slight downside is that I find it gets drowned a touch in any heavier water encountered but a quick whizz up and down the line with some grease etc sorts that nicely for a fair while.
    Works best for me on my 3 weight rods , fast or medium and throws real tight loops but still v good on a 4 with maybe a haul at shorter ranges

    I've ordered one from JN in their 20% off sale.
    Out of stock at the moment but should get it in a week or so.
    Only when the last tree has been cut down, the last fish caught and the last river poisoned, will we realise, we cannot eat money.

    Its a nice line & casts really well but is a bit delicate.... Be warned.

    Mine arrived from JN quicker than expected.
    Just finished 4 hours at Raemoir fishery where it needed the tip greasing straight away to stay afloat.
    Needed to get a bit of line out to load the #5 rod I was using and it didn't lie very straight on the water at first.
    Nine good rainbows and one blue later and it was straighter!
    Only used very small dries and buzzers, I was happy with the presentation.
    It'll be interesting to see how it goes with my #3

    Mines loads my three weight nicely mate. I think a 5# is pushing it on such a thin line. Good to see it still dose the trick through

    Time on the water isn't spent. It's invested . Everyday is a school day.

    Has anyone bought stuff from/through 'bhuzzmarket'? They have this line up for 33.

    Fly Fishing :

    I've never heard of it/them.

    p.s Had a look around the internet and it appears to be a scamming site. Apologies for putting up the link.

    Nope, never heard of them either.
    I can't see a physical address for them on that website either so, personally wouldn't chance it.
