    Are there any guidelines for the best day to go lake fishing?

    Its no good waffling on, you're not seeing the bigger picture, in your job do you prescribe medication by hearsay without seeing the patient or talking to them or asking their symptoms. This anti cancer drug was it made without testing? You want to catch fish, whats the symptoms, check the...

    I find it handy to take two rods, one set for dries and one for when fish are feeding deeper, this way I can swap rods far quicker than change flies when the need arises.

    If you mean the one at Shelley, I was going to go there after fishing for some bits, but I didn't as I had some fish in the car and didn't want them cooked. Try messaging them on Facebook

    Are there any guidelines for the best day to go lake fishing?

    Yesterday I could do no wrong with black gnats, today same spot, same time nothing. I moved along to a shallower section, nothing on the black gnat but fish were moving subsurface, I tried weighted gnats the ones that sit subsurface and again a brilliant day (y) I don't think the fish wanted...

    WD-40 and (fly) fishing

    WD40 is a brand name and they make a lot of stuff, however the dispersent oil can melt some plastics and it does wash away other lubricants. I used it on some sea lures and finished up with plastic lure boxes that looked like snot the nest time out :oops: I like the WD40 silicon lubricant :)

    WF Fly Line

    Mine just says SLA so must be an early model, they have probably improved them for the mark 2, I find it big and cumbersome compered to my Pflueger Trion reels, but its just my opinion :)

    WF Fly Line

    I was given a wychwood truefly sla reel set some years ago, I've never used it as its naff, however during lockdown I took the line off one of the spools and tried it on my usual reel and once we could get out again I gave it a go and it was almost straight, I gave it a pull on my usual pulling...

    WF Fly Line

    I bought a 444 a few years ago and it was also a bit coily so I took it back and they said it was ok, I emailed USA and explained and they said send it back and they would check it. They sent a new one back plus some goodies to cover postage and apologised about the faulty one. I've never been...

    Want slightly more distance

    My experience is that some manufactures over-size the line and call it super duper casting line, some don't. So buying a oversized line that is already oversized is going to be a interesting casting experience. Chose wisely grasshopper
