    Sand in your boots?

    I think the insoles were originally glued in, but of late they have detached hence why sand was getting underneath and building up. I will in future remove them and flush out after every trip. Thanks to all who replied. S.

    Leader drifting

    The way I read it you are using a 15ft tippet? if that’s so is it a tapered one or straight through mono. Try using a 10 ft one and see if that turns over better, with the weight of flies you have on it seems strange to me that it just crumples at the end of your main line? S.

    Help with my rod

    Hi Mark, the old spigot joint problem, I take it from your picture that it is pushed fully home but still loose? You can buy a spray of graphite build up, never tried it but I think you can spray the male part and it builds up each time ensuring a tight fit. S.
