    Rutland

    If ‘you lot’ (trout anglers) booked the boats up and went fishing, then ‘us lot’ (predator anglers) couldn’t get on... you can see anyone with any form of business sense sees any fishing as money in the coffers. And for the record, I fish for everything, even trout, so am not really stovepiped...

    Rutland

    This thread has made me giggle, thanks 🍿 As a very below-average trout angler, I rarely fail to catch at least something on Rutland, so if hardcore fly Angler’s fail, maybe that’s just down to the weather, or one of those days - or you’re not very good! I now really only fish it for predators...

    Prescription sunglasses

    There’s a new Cornish company called Waterhaul. Frames made from recycled disused fishing nets and frames in glass or plastic, polarised and prescription available. The wife and I bought I pair each that arrived this week, think they were about £75 and seem great! There’s

    Wrasse?

    Interesting, I’ve always found they fought very well and know a lot of people who count them as pound-for-pound one of the best sporting fish we have 🤷🏻‍♂️

    Wrasse?

    Thanks, although I realised I made a mistake in my post - I haven’t actually caught one on fly, the post should have read on the lure (I’ve amended now) Good to hear it can be done, I’ll pack the fly rod next time I go. Floating line, or intermediate? Do you get any damage to the fly line from...

    Wrasse?

    Last time I was in Cornwall I managed a lot of decent Ballan on the lure rod, fishing not too far out in reasonably shallow water on small soft plastics. Has anyone tried for them on the fly? If so, any tips please? I suspect I can still use my 9# floater, and a long tippet to allow the heavy...

    Hardy ASR?

    Perfect, thanks. Hardy confirmed today that they aren’t for salt, so that’s probably that idea out anyway P

    Hardy ASR?

    Ah, so the ASR isn’t salt proof then? Interesting. I’d assumed if I was paying £250+ it would be fine?!

    Hardy ASR?

    Evening, posted this in tackle talk, but may get more help in here for salt specific q.... Looking for a solid, durable cassette style reel with a decent disc drag for use on a Clearwater #8 for carp, pike and light saltwater. i like the look of the Hardy ASR 6000 or 7000, but are they good...

    Hardy ASR or other?

    Thanks. The airflo and greys are fine, but not large enough - at least in the sizes I have - I’ll look see if they do bigger. But I also doubt the drag is good for saltwater (possibly overseas) and big pike/carp. I didn’t think the ASR was too bad price wise, when compared to the rest of the...

    Evening, Looking for a solid, durable cassette style reel with a decent disc drag for use on a Clearwater #8 for carp, pike and light saltwater. i like the look of the Hardy ASR 6000 or 7000, but are they good and are they saltwater proof? Any better alternatives in that price bracket, or...

    Upper Witham

    I have been very lucky to accompany a friend on a guest ticket twice in the last few weeks to GAAFF sections - a truly beautiful, well kept river and some cracking fish! I’d definitely join if I wasn’t moving away. Newark piscatorial and Scunthorpe amalgamated have sections a bit further...

    River Bain, Lincs

    Hi all, New to posting on the forum, but been lurking for a while - go gently please. Does/has anyone fished the upper reaches of the River Bain in Lincs? It looks ‘Trouty’ and I found online a Trout Trust report from 2008, but very scant other details online. Thanks in advance.
