    Wading boots problem

    I agree. I went from 10s to 11s a few years ago. Sent from my M2101K6G using Tapatalk

    I ordered a Minima fly reel on a whim on Christmas Day using Stock20. To my surprise it arrived yesterday, 9 days later, complete with free gifts, fly box, fly line, line straightener. I'm becoming a convert....... Sent from my M2101K6G using Tapatalk

    Guideline DW fly vest

    That looks like a good bit of kit. Re the airflo vest/backpack combo a few have referred to. I didn't like it. Too heavy and it isn't like this one so not really comparable. I like the idea of the sliding pockets. Looks very neat imo.

    UK made value fly lines

    I bought a Hardy reel from him and a "Rio Gold" fly line before it all went t1t5 up. Both at a fraction of rrp. The line, whether fake or not was/is one of the best lines I've ever had. So my experience was good.

    2 weight rod recommendations wanted

    I'm considering adding a 2 weight to the armoury. Looking for something 9' or 9'6" that can be used for Euro style nymphing but will also cast a #2 flyline for dryfly and occasional spider fishing. Anyone got any recommendations for such a beast please? Sent from my M2101K6G using Tapatalk

    Rod repairs North East

    Nick, if you have any DIY skills at all changing a few rings is a very simple job. I successfully built a rod last year with no prior knowledge and my DIY skills are virtually non-existent. Alternatively, most tackle shops can probably either do it for you or put you in touch with someone who can.

    Investments in fly fishing gear

    I'm not sure I'd agree with most. I think there's a good chance that will appreciate a fair bit, particularly if you are prepared to sell to the US. Only 115 sets of made in England kit!!. Will sell well over there I expect. Could be wrong but who knows for sure. I will say you would be...
