    Biggest ever wild Brownie in UK waters.

    I'm surprised that only one post has mentioned dollaghan,that's one lump of a fish for any river but it certainly isnt the biggest to ever be caught as posted by shuck raider and he's right about it being kept quiet except it's an open secret among trout anglers in northern Ireland

    How to make CDC float

    I did try Wyatts dhe,and it's a fly I really like but last night there was no interest in it at all,I'd fish on spiders the cdc sedge and even RS2 size 18,and they did take the sedge right back every time so each one was a forceps job

    How to make CDC float

    This might add to the confusion about cdc,I'd four or five fish tonight on a cdc sedge after each fish was released a quick rinse and a few false casts then dried off with amadou and float away again no problem,no floantant of any type used

    The problem with 'fish locally' if that's a condition of starting fishing again

    I've had two letters telling me I've to shield for twelve weeks and to be honest I'm peed about it but if everyone can get to fish and I can't because of my health problems that's fine by me,just because I can't go out to play doesn't mean no one else is allowed out to play
