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?
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...
My local river has a decent run of sea trout from June onwards. It's a small river, about 8m wide with a mixture of fast/slow and shallow/deep pools.
Last season was my first proper season of targetting them at night, and I have got used to fishing the pools in the darkness when the...
Had my first outing on a local lake earlier this week. I fished from the shore with a 18ft leader, GRHE on the point, Diawl Bach in the middle and Cruncher on the top dropper.
Within 10 minutes, I had a double hook-up, one on the GRHE and the fish in the photo below (just shy of 1lb)...

Bought an Aventik fly box from Amazon yesterday afternoon for just £8, it arrived this morning. I like the foam slots, but the lid crushes the wings/hackle. Anyone bought any cheap boxes in a similar style to this one that are deep enough for keeping bushy or winged wet flies?
Looking to tie a few Greenwell wets. I don't have starling wings, but do have mallard and teal wings. Can either of these be used instead, or is it recommended to stick to the starling?
Few posts on here have inspired me to tie some wets with a bit of flash in the tail for the top dropper! The most popular floss seems to be glo brite?
Will be adding a few different colours to my shopping basket - before I do so.... Any recommendations for patterns, along with the correct...
Looking for advice if possible. I have a 'Stillwater' Float Tube which I've had for around 6 years. I love using it, but feel like I'm constantly slipping down, almost to the point where I'm lying down in it, and find myself constantly shifting myself back up. Has anyone experience of some...
