    What are the Lancsy Lads up to next? (Volume 2) 2018-

    Tough going again for you Tom but well done with the onsie. 🎣 Yep, it's that time of year for biting midges. 👿🪰 Midge repellents don't actually stop them biting you, it just make you taste nasty. :sick: As for midge nets, you have to make sure you get the right one. Some are for mossies, they...

    Afternoon guys. Much better than yesterday being bright with a breeze. But what happened to the rain??? Had to rescue a bee, second time one has got trapped between the runner of patio doors. Had to construct a ramp of kinds from paper for it to climb up. It didn't even wave goodbye when it left...

    Obviously too much of a mouthful !

    One place that I worked in had loads of cockchafers, especially during the night. The Horse Chestnuts have been in flower so the beetles will appear. They can be worse than moths and they make hell of smack when hitting the lights. Hard safety hat time.

    I was hoping it would stick around to adulthood, typical teenager wanting to see the world. :rolleyes:

    I've had the odd pond olive but this is a first. I can now report that it has left the building.

    Was my first thoughts, but then not living near any flowing water!! Viewing the fly as it was (and still is, it has moved but still on the window) gives good idea of what the trout see. :)

    Understandable Earl. But, the bathroom can be decontaminated before they turn up. I know some of my neighbours had inside jobs done throughout the autumn, winter and this spring.

    I don't live near a river (closest is 1 mile away), no little streams or such. Only know of one garden pond which might now be disused and filled in. :unsure: Fly was on the window so only could get underside looking into the sky. Not a good camera as no manual focus and macro is auto only...

    Morning guys. Weather is grey, bit of a breeze and very slightly damp but drying. It's hard work getting decent trade people in without having to wait quite some time Earl.

    Morning guys. Grey and very still here this morning. I've never fished there Alban, only walked it a few times. I did fish below Ribchester bridge just down river. It was a free stretch at the time, very shallow but I did managed a brown fly fishing.

    Unlucky Tom, a case of needing to be in the right place. Becomes embarrassing when others are catching on flies you gave them and you blank. 😦

    Afternoon guys. After a grey start it's now sunshine with white fluffy clouds and a cool breeze. Spent the morning doing the front garden, garden waste bin now full. Will just have to leave the back garden until the bin is emptied. Tut!!! :D SteveN, PAAS has LOADS OF MONEY. Plus they'll buy...

    Maxima Sharktooth Tippet Band

    The only line cutters that I've seen in the UK are the Stroft ones for Stroft tippet spool system. https://www.tungsten-beads-plus.com/collections/indicators-and-leaders/products/stroft-cutting-rings-for-spool-system I've tried them but we didn't get on, similar to the Maxima ones. It's probably...

    Sorry James, I can't find anyone in the UK selling them apart from Amazon uk who are selling Loon ones at a stupid price of £77.
