    Sorry if its been asked in here before

    thanks for all of this! Having already had an expensive line trampled on by my daughter a few cheeper back ups that arent rubbish will really help. Now we just need to be able to fish haha

    Sorry if its been asked in here before

    I did do a quick search but couldn't find a lot of information but has anyone tried John Noris flylines? They always seem reduced by a large amount and just wanted a couple of back up lines for the kids to use. Just wondered if they are every really sold for £35-40 and are they worth £7-10 cheers

    Bass Bags

    that is a brilliant idea! - - - Updated - - - The Chapman bags are brilliant at keeping the fish fresh, just seem a bit over priced now

    Bass Bags

    Hi all what do you all recommend when it comes to bass bags and keeping the fish fresh? For as long as I can remember Ive used Chapman Bags but I need a replacement and the large bag is now £45 which seems a little much. I need something that I can fold up really small and carry in the back...

    Sea Trout in the sea

    sea trout numbers used to be alot higher, there were a number of rivers that would get a good number of fish but they were a bit of a local secret and very few were caught or even fished for. Even in the city centre of Norwich you get a couple of runs and if they sorted out the sluice which...

    Acceptable Distance?

    the fish are often closer than you think! Ive being going with a mate of mine last year who was new to fly fishing and very much learning to cast, his casts were often half the distance to mine yet our catch returns are very similar. There are times where some distance helps but as people have...

    Sea Trout in the sea

    my original post was talking about sea trout in the open sea, no where near a river mouth or estuary. I see from some of the sea angler reports they are running at the moment, no one catches them but they can be seen jumping out. I think most of the lures I used for bass would be too big for...

    GT90 or Mallard?

    What amazing service from Mike at Barrio Lines. Emailed him to find out when new stock would arrive and he replied straight away. I ordered the fly line (GT90) and it was shipped just a few hour later arriving the next morning. Looks a feels great, just need the easterly winds to drop now so I...

    Mullet

    Hi A few years back I tried to catch a mullet on a fly with pretty poor results, well I say pretty poor - I didnt catch a thing (apart from a dab high in the water on a black pennall!) We tried a couple of waters in Wales and some more local waters (I'm in Norfolk) but just couldnt catch...

    Thanks, I'll give the GT90 ago, in part the GT90 stock came in yesterday and it could be a while before there are any more mallard. Looking forward to trying them out!

    Furled leaders

    Ive never had a problem with that, I think the Furled leader absorbs enough of the mucilin, you dont need much to make it float

    Furled leaders

    yes they can sink which I find useful if fishing buzzer but a quick grease up with mucilin and you are good for ages. Also think you get a better turn over as already said. But also because they last for ages you get through a lot less mono/fluoro or tapered leaders etc. Think 2 of my furled...

    Furled leaders

    I love them! I switched over about 7-8 years ago and never looked back. I have 1.6m that I use on still water for all my dry fly and nymph/buzzer fishing and 1m that I use on my stream fishing set up. I get mine from here DL Furled Leaders - Best in Presentation

    GT90 or Mallard?

    Hi everyone I know this site is a big fan of Barrio lines so I'm going to order one and give them ago. Just cant decide between the GT90 or Mallard. Most of my fishing is on a large still water fishing a WF6 on a 9'6'' rod with either buzzers, nymphs, hoppers and dries. Its a windy lake...
