    BFR Magnum reel with spare spool and Aircel Double Taper lines.

    This was bought, along with the Daiwa rod listed here, for a coupe of fishing holidays, and is therefore very lightly used. The lines may well be of interest (dt being hard to find nowadays), both #10 double taper, an Aircel Supreme and a WetCel II. Despite having been stored on the spools the...

    Daiwa Lochmor 14'6" #10

    This cost me around £130 years ago, and has only been used on a couple of holidays. As I remember it is a progressive action rod. £60, plus carriage at cost. See separate listing for pictured reel and lines.

    Why are the drifter fins no good? Which do you recommend? Thanks.

    I've just bought a Lineaffe tube, which has pvc bladders- will your recommendations be ok on these?

    Snowbee Classic 2 3/4

    No, the seller of the rod I bought on Ebay later messaged me to say he had a Greys reel and line to match the rod, hence the sale.

    Danica Compo 690 spools

    Does anyone know how still has Danica Compo 690 spools in stock? A quick Google search has proved fruitless. I will of course try the Wanted section here.

    Becoming very disillusioned with buying online

    Maybe I've been lucky, but I've never come unstuck buying on the internet, and have had some great deals. My local tackle shop, which I tried to support, sold rotten leader material, fly tying materials out of the pyramids, and would never give you a deal. I've bought lenses from Hong Kong that...

    Hardy rod

    Crikey, I've had two replacement sections for my Orvis Helios rods, without any handling charge, when I dropped them off at my local shop.My third accident (I'm not that clumsy, I just fish a lot and have owned four Helios's for seven years) was my ten foot five weight eaten by the outboard, and...

    New Orvis Rods

    The Helios 2 hasn't been around long enough to be superseded by the next new model. I have three original Helios rods, one of which, a ten foot five weight, was recently replaced with the equivalent Helios 2, and bar the cosmetics I can't tell the difference. Nearly all the new rods are heavier...

    Airflo 40+ extreme #5 floating

    GAC don't have the old version of the 40+ extreme in a five weight, they've checked their stockroom for me. Looks like I'll go for the SuperDri, it's now reduced to £30.As i said in my original post, I only want it as a spare- when the level drops in the back end it's very easy to damage a line...

    Airflo 40+ extreme #5 floating

    Anyone I know where I can get one of the above (it's the ivory/sunrise version), hopefully at a sale price? I know they do the new SuperDri version (is it the same profile?) but I just want one as a spare, I've found the one I'm using is perfect on Grafham's dam wall.
