    MAXCATCH Vs Cortland

    Well at least we agree on that. Anyway, I'm out of here, threads such as these, often pinned, have a weary familiarity to them.

    MAXCATCH Vs Cortland

    An admittedly unfair comparison then. The interesting aspect of the post is that the chosen 444 is the SL, a distance casting version rather than the Peach 444 which I'm accustomed to along with many other fly fishers, it would have been interesting if it had been compared to a Windcutter, MC's...

    MAXCATCH Vs Cortland

    If you must know - and this is totally irrelevant to the OP - I couldn't be bothered, a year's work from a line is poor performance but nothing to cadge a new one over . What I find interesting is that you buy an obviously defective line and use it to represent the Maxcatch brand against...

    MAXCATCH Vs Cortland

    This review doesn't reflect my experience of using MC lines particularly this part of the comparison - It's fairly rough to the touch and didn't improve on the water grinding throught the rings like a muddy rope. I find it odd that following dozens of posts giving positive feedback on MC...

    Brown trout into Sea Trout...some advice

    If your fishing a deep pool and there's no surface activity go through the changes to a Wetcel II, only thing with sinkers is they're sods for coiling at your feet and getting caught around your boots - it leads to some bizarre dance manoeuvres in water deeper than your arms reach. A great...

    Brown trout into Sea Trout...some advice

    Settled conditions favour sea trout fishing, the fish ascend the river even in a drought in bright sun. A flood brings the fish in from the sea but the move through quickly. Dawn is productive, I like the way the fishing fizzles out as the light intensifies and you head back for a cuppa. Some...

    Cheers Andy! I'd put this down to your zen-like ability to drive a car through a ten foot opening without hitting a gatepost 😃
