    The Loop Opti 185 tactical flybox seems a good box for what you need :) https://uk.looptackle.com/product/opti-185-tactical-fly-box/

    First ever rainbow from the river

    I caught my first ever river rainbow on the Derbyshire Wye on Saturday gone past.First session fly fishing on a river,but I had a guide showing me the ropes.Very different from reservoir fishing as expected,but a lot of excitement.Managed to net this one lovely rainbow, but lost another big one...

    Where to practice casting

    Many years ago when I had my first go at fly fishing,I used to practice on a field with not much public access. I have been tempted to go on one of the local fields,but not looking forward to my fly line getting covered in dog poop and of course also not the snidy remarks from passers-by.

    Where to practice casting

    Good evening everyone. I am a bit curious.Other then actually going out fishing and practising your casting on the water,does anyone go out casting on a field or their back garden etc to hone their technique ?

    Beginner needs help

    Thanks for your reply lee71. I have checked out Funky Fly tying, but unfortunately all of their vices are outside of my current budget.Have seen the Snowbee vice before,but not sure if I should go for it,arghhh

    Beginner needs help

    Hi everyone.I am not new to flyfishing, but still regard myself as a novice. I would like to start tying my own flies and have scoured the forum and internet for advice, but I am still somewhat unclear of where to start.I was initially drawn to the Veniard fly tying kit,but now know that kits...
