    10ft 3-4 weight recommendations; Maxcatch, Orvis

    I have two maxcatch performance 10ft rods one is a 2 at the other is a 3 . Nice rods finished off as good as any Greys rod. But I also have two 10 ft agility 11 rods which are not finished as well but I much prefer the blank action of these just my take on it, the aglitys are a 3 and a 4 weights...

    The Darlington Brown Trout Angling club are still taking new members and wavering the joining fee for new members until the end of the year. So that's a saving of £20 for senior members.

    Czech Nymphing Alternative to fly line

    Depending on how the leader is made, if its tapered with a heavy butt section something like 15 to 20 lb maxima you should be able to cast it without any weighted flies on and providing its not windy, turn it over OK. If its just level mono you won't be able to and with that set up you will be...

    Euro nymphing set up

    The current agility is a lovely rod John. I would just go for it. Even if a new model comes out the agility 2 is a highly desirable rod at that price point and will remain so. For a sighter you can use lots of different stuff nothing is cast in stone. Just make sure you can see it and it's not...

    11 ft 3wt ESN rod

    If I must say my views is your over thinking things. A lighter line rods biggest advantages are you can use ultra light tippets to catch spooky trout and grayling in difficulty conditions. If you go ultra light for big fish your either going to snap off. Or if you are using heavy tippets the...

    8wt line on 7wt rod

    Only one way to find out try it. Depends on how you cast and how stiff the rod is, some people will fish a shorter line and the heavy line may benefit. On the other hand if you carry a long line the lighter line could benefit you by not overloading the rod. There is no cast in stone answer it...

    Royal Wulff triangular taper prenium plus tapered line £100

    I agree with your comments, but really is case of £8 for the gold or £68 for the cheapness Wulff I can find online. Taking everything into consideration £68 still sounds a rip off imo. I used to buy shakespere fly lines when they were made in the UK cost about £25 that's a fair price. I...
