    Looks like it has gone up by a couple of quid since I bought it.

    Fulling mill flouo v2

    Just to report back on the Seaguar red label. Very impressed with it. Landed 15 rainbows yesterday including one over 3lbs and not a breakage all day. The 6lb is much thinner than the 6lb fulling mill - I could even thread a size 22 buzzer on it. It peels off the spool nice and straight, and...

    Hi. I ordered the Maxcatch gold fly line and it has arrived today. It came with a box with a spool inside (the line was in a bag outside the box). The box says Avid Flyline on it. The line is yellow and moss green. Is the line an Avid or real gold? (or are they one an the same?). Also I presume...

    WF Fly Line

    I would normally say Cortland 444 peach classic but my last one had fairly bad memory in the last 15 ft. No amount of stretching would remove it. I'm gonna give a cheapo maxcatch gold line a try at £12 from China. Not arrived yet but heard great things about them.

    Paraloop f fly?

    Hi Nick. Where do you buy your crinkly yarn. I agree - I bought the Veniards stuff and didn't get on with it.

    Cheers Jim. Just bought 200yds of 6lb for £12.90 delivered to try it out. It is thinner than FM.

    Fulling mill flouo v2

    Makes you wonder why they would change a winning formula. Just snapped up a couple of 100m spools of the old 6lb. Might be on the lookout for a mid range priced flouro to take over as my go to.

    Fulling mill flouo v2

    Hi all. I have been using the original fulling mill fluorocarbon for years and have full confidence in it. I was talking to a fella yesterday and he mentioned it has been discontinued and replaced by a version 2. He reckons he has found it snaps at the knots. Will be gutted if it is worse than...

    Anyone know if the max catch gold lines have welded loops? Also any current discount codes?

    How to make CDC float

    I tend to prefer emerges with a foam head as once you apply a little gunk / cdc gel to the foam they float all day. Once a fish is caught just dry in kitchen roll and re apply a little gink to the foam. You can buy closed cell foam sheets in white, black, tan, and brown.

    Shakespeare electric outboard motor

    Hi all. Was out on the boat last weekend when my outboard stopped working in reverse gears. It then stopped working full stop. After a few mins it then started to work in forward but not reverse. After a few more minutes it seemed OK in fwd and reverse. I am told the switch could be on outs way...
