Agreed, I never sell my flies... and if I did, it wouldn't be on ebay. Flies are ridiculously cheap on ebay! For me to make any profit, I would probably have to charge around £1.80 per fly just to make it worth my time/effort... and even then I'm not sure it would be! Compare that price to the...
I ordered 2 packs of hooks from a reputable seller on ebay.... one pack arrived in 2 days, the other in 3 weeks. I think Royal Mail are having a bit of a nightmare at the moment.
Try calling your local sorting office.
I was in a similar position to yourself.... my outfit was way too heavy for the river. Ended up buying a Leeda Profil rod, a cheap chinese reel and a DT mill end #3 line. The whole outfit cost me under £50, and it's improved my catches on the river as I'm now able to present the fly much...

Had my first 'night' fish this season last night. I caught it around 1am on a teal blue and silver variant.I weighed it at just over 2.5 lbs.
I posted the photo on a facebook page, some think its a salmon, others a sea trout. What do you think?
I have a 10 #6 Onki and it's my favourite rod.
Worth keeping in mind.... there's no 'ring' for holding your fly like on most rods nowadays, and no white dots for alignment. This doesn't bother me personally, but it might bother some people.
Will be staying in Ross on Wye from Thursday until Monday. Is it worth taking my fly gear with me? And if so, can anyone point me in the direction of decent fishing nearby? 'm not really interested in course or salmon fishing, but would prefer o do some lake/river/stillwater fishing...
I've recently bought a 10ft #7 Hardy Shadow 220 sintrix, brand new from ebay for £285.00. The seller had 100% positive feedback and over 120 sales. He is selling quite a lot of Hardy gear.
The listing stated that "this rod has come from a Hardy stockist that has had to close due to the...
