    Fake Tackle

    Well then it probably is.. No expert but for what it is worth. Does it look right of a 20 yr old reel? I mean 20 years is not that old so we would expect minimum wear. Usually the rim will have some nicks & "dents" and a bit of paint loss where it has been laid down on stones,gravel etc. Around...

    Fake Tackle

    Every genuine item made today has been faked at one time or other. Some are so good that the owner would never know what he really had. I do not see why fishing tackle should be exempt. Tight Lines

    Advice On Dry Flies For The Clyde

    Match the hatch. Modern dries such as deer hair emergers & comparaduns will work well.Get the bodycolour right & you are half way there. If fishing into the gloamin watch out for sedge.

    Bag limits for ireland

    You reap what you sow. Sorry but there you go. Poaching is endemic within the local population & with the influx of Eastern Europeans doubly so. Tight Lines

    Daiwa Osprey fly reel

    There were loads of these "rebadged" reels in the 80s. This being one of them. Spools were interchangeable I do believe. Nearest equivalent I can think off is the Bruce & Walker Range of the same era. These I believe were same as your Osprey. But it was a long time ago & the old memory dims so...

    Maxima or Drennan?

    Jim I think that the main problems arose when you tried to put dropper knots in it. For a single fly is will be ok but I never liked it from the start. Hard to teach an old dog new tricks I guess Tight Lines

    Maxima or Drennan?

    Drennan Double Strength, I am surprised this stuff is still on sale. When it came out years ago everybody & their granny bought it. Some found out quite quickly it was wanting. I have lost count of the fish I have seen lost by anglers using this stuff. I remember an article way back in T&S I...

    Bloody poacher.........What moi!

    Kevos1, you feel such a fool, think that is the worse thing. Aenoon I believe David is correct, I remember was some time back that there was a rule in the Grantown area that you had to be resident in the area to be able to buy a permit & camping was not included as residential status. Perhaps...
