    Moth I.D.

    It was a bit quick at times to get a shot of him so we cracked the egg into a saucer to slow him down a bit. Plus one in the garden.

    Moth I.D.

    The best bit of wild life I saw in Gairloch was Pine Martin. It used to come to the window of the cottage we were in, obviously used to getting fed there. We put out a Chickens egg out for it, great.

    Moth I.D.

    I think I will stick to your first suggestion. There was not a lot of colouration on it and I think the Thorax might have been the wrong colour as well for the Hornet Moth. Also the Antennae were not Black. Thankyou all the same kind sir.

    Lake fishing for trout tips welcome pls!

    I suggest you look at the diagram again from Ian 1104. It sounds as if you tied it all wrong. The flies go first then the bubble float on the end of the line, no wonder you were getting tangles if you put the float before the flies.

    Is it £3.80 though. Looking at the subs page it says £55.80 for a one off payment or £ 50 for an auto re- subscribe. But at £3.80 for 13 copies it works out at £49.40 ! What am I missing here please.

    HELP ***** ferrule loose on cane rod

    Really was a great shop to go to. I used to get my Maggots there as a kid to fish the Wye when John Hatton was there. Later in life we used to go out the back of the shop on a Saturday and just chat and drink tea, proper old time shop. Moved away years later but was sorry to hear of it closing.
