    The supreme fishing wagon

    Due to the fact that I have bought a newer, larger camper van I am offering my much loved Mazda Bongo for sale. This Bongo was imported from Japan about 3 years ago and has been owned by me ever since. Originally a 'tin top' it has been professionally converted to a camper van by JAL of...

    Club web sites

    Ad-vice wanted

    Hi All, I'm hoping to tap into your vast store of collective knowledge here. I am about to take my first steps into fly tying - nothing fancy at first, just a few nymphs for my local river. I am currently a little bewildered at the types of vice available, lever, knurled knob, stand alone...

    New License

    My new EA License has just arrived and, once again it's as big as an old fashioned white fiver. By the time I've folded it enough times to put it in my wallet it's about a quarter of an inch thick! Surely they could do a credit card sized license. Grump over. Adrian.

    Wader repair

    After 2 years of hard use my trusty Wychwoods have finally given up the ghost. It's not the waders themselves that have failed but the neoprene socks. I have small feet and the neoprene tends to get a bit screwed up inside the boot. This has caused a permanent crease where water is now...

    Postage TO the USA

    I had to send a rod section back to the States for repair yesterday so I popped into my local Parcel Force depot. Tracked & insured, priority - over 40 quid!! I had a 'bugger that' moment & went to the Post Office. For the same deal, i.e. tracked & insured, priority = £27. Now here's the...

    Corona Superba

    I picked up another silk line on ebay for a measly £16 - pretty good deal. The line came boxed and marked "Corona Superba" D/T FLY LINE No C 35 YDS. The line itself is dark brown, dry and stiff as a board but apart from a half hitch about 1 yard from the backing end and a poorly executed end...

    Craddock-Astwood reel

    Hello everyone, I'm looking for a little information about a reel I bought recently. It's a Craddock-Astwood 2 7/8" carrying a sticker "FL0151". There are no marks on the reel itself but the box is marked "ERC FL0151 Craddock-Astwood Fly reel Taiwan" I would guess that the reel was made in the...

    Fladen Smoker

    Hi, Mother in Law [bless her] has bought me a Fladen hot smoker which arrived without any instructions. I know the basic principals for operating the beast but there is a flat oval metal plate with 4 clips that I assume is some sort of spreader plate to dissipate the heat. Trouble is; I can't...

    Direct approach

    Hi, I've had an email from David Rogers over at Headwaters Bamboo Rods I was initially surprised that my little blog had been identified as a vehicle for driving sales and not a little tempted to take up the offer; however, I've never seen or handled any of these products. For all I know...
