    River Dinan Kilkenny.

    Let us know how you get on, Gary. I hear there’s some lovely fishing on the Nore and it’s trib’s.

    Breathable Waders

    If you typically tend to fish for just a few hours at a time, then I think this is the way to go.... my nylon hip waders going strong since 2013, and perfect for an evening on a small river.

    ... yes, but what would happen to forum activity then?

    Floating line

    Maxcatch Gold, all day long. A pleasure to cast, supple as silk, floats well and little or no memory. Using a 3wt on my Scott G, works a treat. End of discussion.

    Breathable Waders

    He repaired my Visions about a year back, they were still leaking upon return, repaired them again (at his own cost). But they leaked again within a few outings. To be fair, he said from the outset that they had delaminated and were unlikely to hold.

    I have sealed the seams but still leaking. Can’t find the hole!

    Breathable Waders

    My Orvis Encounter waders (£130 on “offer”) leaked after one season. Now debating whether to send to DD for repair or just buy another pair. Any views on that?

    I use a DT5 on a Sage 9ft 4wt, and it presents very nicely indeed.

    Galway ( South) Fishing

    Right you are, indeed. A lifetime’s great trout fishing in Ireland yet most of us, myself included, just stay local.

    Galway ( South) Fishing

    Why not consider north Cork and Tipperary? .. lots of lovely river fishing for trout over there and handy enough for you

    Make it yourself in lockdown

    Great idea! The less gear, the better. Front pack / back pack (US Marine style) not my cup of tea.

    TT Book Club: The Books that Defined an Angling Generation

    +1 for A Man May Fish ... the chapters about Jamesie are particularly nice writing.
