    Thunderstorms South West

    Just spoke with my brother who’s in Bulford and fished the Wilts Avon for some years. He says it’s blacker than a witches t1t and would expect more rain, there was quite heavy rain this afternoon and he would anticipate the river to be coloured and ‘up’ at the moment - not the best of...

    How many fly boxes do you take with you?

    Any idea what this means, good people...

    Oh yes, I’ve had one for about 2 months (I liked the look of it) but I’m only ever likely to use 7/8 and am on the lookout for someone who only uses 5/6 so that we could swap spare spools :cool: WRT instructions and the nibbly marking thingy...

    This is very true, but I do like to save a bit for later.

    Catch it, kill it, eat it.

    Night time?

    All of my largest wild brownies have been taken at night while fishing for sea trout. Even the smaller fish will attack a tube fly or a large single on the dropper.

    Ethics question.

    Yes, I admired his box tremendously... errr, ahem, I mean his flies... oh :o :omg:

    Ethics question.

    Yup, I think it was Bobby W that said, and I’m paraphrasing, that if we tried to imitate nature the fish would reject it. Instead we have to give an impression of a fly... or was that Hughy F discussing sea trout??? Old men forget, yet all shall be forgot :o
