    best hackles for small dries

    The problem with cape tops is that the hackles are very short. With a genetic midge saddle you're looking at hackles which are potentially many inches long with a consistent barb length. Consequently, you'll be able to tie a number of flies using one hackle. Sent from my SM-N910F using Tapatalk

    Cla gamefair

    I wasn't able to go this year but what is written above bears out comments from those I know who did attend. One in particular was somewhat scathing of the apparently random layout and very poor signage that made navigating the show very challenging. The available 'map' was contained in the show...

    Cost of rods

    Bored for the 'moment'? 'Best'? There's a very 'scientific' question. We're all aware you're a bit of an obsessive ***** but there's really no need to go to the effort you do to prove it at every available opportunity.

    Cost of rods

    I believe that, after 17 months, an 'enquiring mind' would have reached the logical understanding that the price tag on any item is not an indicator or guarantee of performance.

    Teifi or...? Which river near Lampeter for brownies?

    Around Tregaron would be your best bet on the river but as a still water alternative Llyn Berwyn is worth a visit.

    Non-native salmon species

    No sh!t Sherlock! Only the incredibly naive or those who've been locked in a box for the past 100 years would think that. The fragility of our Atlantic Salmon stocks and, in many areas, declining sustainability, is the main reason why every action should be taken from preventing the Pink...

    What age did you start fishing?

    I was lucky in that, where I spent my first 18 years, there was a tiny stream that flowed around the edge of the field at the back of our cottage on on into a farm pond. From about the age of 5 I spent most of my time either in the stream or the pond, initially with a net. Later, my mother would...
