    Meon Springs

    Yes well worth the drive, I'll be making it there this summer and spring. Like the idea of camping and late fishing in the summer, my kids are a little young at the mo to get them in to it, but soon.:)

    Meon Springs

    I popped my head in while I was on business in the area last week (didn't fish). They had a land owner install a bridge in the area that coupled with the rain we have been having had really colored the water. Can you post a report as I'm off there on Sunday if the weather holds out..? Neil

    First try

    Hi all thought I would post my first couple of goes at tying. My step by step hasn't turned up yet or all the correct material so I just tied what I could, they are far from perfect but at least I got some feathers on a hook. Couple of questions: what the f*+@k do you do with the whip...

    Marabou Advice

    Hi Finally got round to getting the vice, and have tied a couple of flies that actually resemble what I'm after :) . But I do have a bit of trouble with Marabou turning round the hook while tying it on, is there a trick to doing this....????? Regards Neil

    astounding photo

    The shot was a winner in one of the sections in the BBC wild life photographer of the year ( can't remember which year ) Always worth a read if you come across the books, every year is full of stunning shots. Neil

    new 8/9 wt

    Hi Ive been looking at the Scierra Blue Water 8/9 wt for this summer as I can't seem to cast the bigger flies on my 7wt. Anyone have an opinion on this rod, or would you recomend something else in that price range £170.00. Also what reel around £150.00 to include second spool...?

    Gods own Country

    Hi Nice shot, my only point would be to go easy on the levels as it is starting to grey out in the highlights on the left, its best left alone if there is no detail there. The adjustment has had far to much sharpening to crunchy...!

    Ist Vice

    Thanks for all the advive, I think I'll go for the Regent and spend out on some good tools, then buy a quality vice later if I feel the need. Neil
