    New boots?

    Fishing Tackle Nicked!

    Sometime during the small hours our car and garage (in Ansdell, FY8) were broken into and a lot of my fishing gear has gone. Things that annoy me the most are a couple of double sided wooden fly boxes full of flies and about 6 double sided plastic boxes with devons, flying Cs, Tobys and savage...

    Shakespeare Agility vs Agility Rise?

    Hi Bought a 9' #5 Agility off the net and was sent the 9' #5 Agility Rise by mistake. Seller has apologised and offered to exchange but before I do that, I just wondered what the differences are. Plan to use for river fishing. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
