    Closing Threads?

    I’ve just realised that the River Fishing For Trout thread has been closed. Is that premature? Why close a thread about fishing for trout on a fishing forum because of one or two muppets. This thread had been trucking along nicely for a while and is of great interest to those of us who enjoy...

    GR50 Price at Gary Evans

    Just passing this info on to forum members. The Gary Evans offer of the week is the Greys GR50 from as low as £70 quid. I used a 9ft 6wt for small still waters for quite a while and it was a decent rod. That's a pretty good price imo. Have fun.

    Fungi Identification

    I know absolutely nothing about fungi, any enthusiasts able to tell me what these may be? They are growing in my garden and clearly a bit storm battered, but in 12 years I've not seen anything similar on the property. Curiosity has the better of me. Thank you. Jon.

    River Ogmore

    Of vests, chest packs and other options...

    One of the things I can't settle on is whether I use a vest or pack of some description and there have been plenty of threads from others on this question. I have a large vest (similar to the Outlander) with a good sized backpack which is great for a full day on the river as I can carry...

    A Depression is Moving In

    I finally get a weekend when I can get out for a day and this weather just won't let up :mad: I'd hoped to spend a few hours after grayling but it's awful. Driving rain, blowing a gale and the rivers look terrible. I'm not a fair weather angler, but this is ridiculous. For those of us still...

    I just acquired a Helios 2 (9ft 4#) and although I've not fished it yet, I spent an hour casting it with a couple of different lines. I knew it would be good because I cast a friends before buying. What a rod! Early days, but it might just be the best I've ever held. I love my slightly...
