    Flies that just dont work.....for me

    Talking of the Peter Ross, a guy I knew fished Witton Lakes in County Durham for years and caught the majority of his fish on it, if asked, he said he was using buzzers and Dawsons.

    Check out this vintage classic I just bought..

    I'm not 100% certain, but somewhere in the back of my head, I think the reels were made by Olympic, a Japanese reel manufacturer.

    Ouch! Tales of falling, slipping and sliding.

    I'm a below knee amputee, once, after fishing a pool, I had to climb over a fence to get to the next pool, I got over, but put my leg into a rabbit hole, snapping the prosthetic limb in half, I looked like a cross between Tolouse Latrec and Quasimodo going back to the car. It was over 400 yards...

    What's the strangest thing that happened to you whilst fishing?

    Caught a bat and a duck while fly fishing during the night, my best one though, was watching and being invited to join a naturist swimming in a deep pool, just to add, the naturist was female, otherwise I would not have gone in! :fish2:

    I was walking the dog on Wolsingham stretch last Wednesday and note from a large stone on the bankside, that the water was 17 inches below normal level, the water is moving, but is very slow and a bit warm. There was no fly life about and no fish taking on the top, wether there were fish...

A friend called me this morning to tell me, he fished...
