    Durham Derwent.

    The Derwent has always been a good grayling river Andy. I've never fished below Linztford, always above, but some good fishing to be had on the upper stretch. Above the craggs at Alansford the going get tough, pretty overgrown, the sneep is well known for that. Here's a link on the DAA website...

    Siskin

    Yes some breeders cross British with the Canary, I had this pair in with the canaries because I didn't have any room elsewhere. They could still have cross bred but not on this occasion.

    Siskin

    Try niger @ hemp aswell. When I housed Siskins in with the canaries they would empty the seed dishes just for the hemp seed, leaving the canaries to feed off the flight floor.

    Reel for sale on eBay - chancer?

    Nymphing Rod 10' or 11'

    11ft Greys xf2 for me, bought it when they first came out & never looked back. I had 10ft's before, but prefer this length now. As for weight wise tbh I haven't noticed any difference, just eat an extra weetabix in the morning..:giggle:

    sights for ar 15 for deer hunting

    Hi annar, I doubt you'll get any advice on mounting Red Dot sights on your AR 15, I've never heard of anyone shooting deer in the UK with one, AR 15 that is. There's no semi auto rifles allowed in the UK, (apart from 22's) they were banned after the Micheal Ryan episode in Hungerford. BF.
