    Swap, Hardy 'The Brook'

    I have a mint Hardy 'Brook' Glass fly rod. This rod is a 6'0" #3 two piece which I would consider swapping. Although this rod is probably one of the nicest rods I own, it's just not being used which is a shame. Classic Styling and aesthetics, Lovely dark green blank , manufactured from...

    Thanks Steven and Scott - Any advice is appreciated. I know that Crediton Fly Tackle don't stock Simms so I might have a problem with going down that route - but useful information for the future. Any boot that lasts over 4 seasons is well worth having!! Steven, I have also kept a record of...

    Advice please on Wading Boots

I have probably used them on about 5 occasions, and I have the same issue as with the Loika's the soles...

    Time for new 9ft 6 6 wt

    My go to 9'6" #6 rod is a Sage Method - Fantastic rod puts out a great line - Like the Sage One, mentioned above, it may be too fast for your needs but I haven't had a problem with bumping fish off due to it's action. Paul

    Sage SP/SLT Rods

    Agree - Method or X in a 6# - good replacement for XP In a 4# then Hardy Zephrus, Scott Radian, NRX LP and the X in a 4# is also a nice rod. Lot's of choice!!! Paul

    Sage SP/SLT Rods

    I have a Sage Method in 9'6" #6 as well as an X 9'6" #7 and I like the Method so much that if I take both rods reservoir fishing, often the X stays in the tube!! I would recommend the Sage Method as a good replacement for an XP Paul

    Wanted Patagonia Hybrid Vest Pack

    Still looking - If no one has one up for grabs then does anyone know where I might get hold of a new one? (L/XL) The problem seems to be that Patagonia were one of the first companies to shut down with the Covid situation and so stock is really hard to source now. Please PM me if you know where...

    By the way, I contacted Maxcatch by email yesterday and they are still operating but due to the current health crisis shipping is taking much longer than usual. Paul

    Thanks Noel, I hope you are keeping well. All we can do at the moment is armchair fishing!!! I have been casting a few rods / lines in the garden though. I must admit that the Maxcatch 'Gold' is up there with most of the Rio's / Sage lines IMO. Paul
