    Fisheries Lost

    I know I’m talking to the converted on this forum but having just posted on another thread mentioning apathy I got to thinking about the future of our sport, especially with the ageing demographic of fly fishers and the growth in all methods fisheries. As a club we’ve honoured every outing this...

The otter swam steadily out to my boat on Morton, disappeared from sight at the bow and then turned and swam slowly back to the jetty and disappeared under it. It was swimming slightly strange and I guess it had an injured leg. it...

    Silicone or tacky fly box inserts

    Does anyone know where I can source tacky or decent silicone inserts for a fly box. My Wychwood double sided clear box has foam that can’t grip anything. I use it for barbless flies but a fair percentage of them fall out into the box every time it is touched, worse than useless. Thought I’d try...

    Chew/Blagdon accommodation question

    Hi I'm looking for help on accommodation for 8 anglers hoping to fish Chew and Blagdon next year. We used to go every year but bit by bit the pubs closed or reduced rooms. The Live and Let Live was first, then the Blue Bowl and more recently the Seymour Arms. With luck somewhere will have 4...

    Get yersel to Lintrathen

    Thought I'd post after a cracking day at Lintrathen as I don't see too many posts about the place. We were on floaters all day today and had action literally everywhere we fished, the road shore is holding lots of bows, as is the middle of the loch in the area of the flagged buoys(aerator not...

    Rod holder for tackle box

    Hi Does anyone know where I can get hold of a rod holder to screw onto the side of my tackle box, for keeping the rod vertical when on the move boat fishing. See them everywhere but kept forgetting to ask folk last season.

    It's a long time since I heard anything about Glensherrup, do you know how it's fishing. I believe Andy from Lindores took over, is it as good as Lindores was before the gill parasite problem? Z

    World Championships

    I've not seen much on the upcoming World Championships so thought I'd kick off a thread. The best Scotland have done to date is a 4th place in Norway back in the early 90's, but this year should see that eclipsed. I have a feeling in my water that we (Scotland) will be right up there with a...
