    Articulated flies

    Hi guys I'm looking to tie some articulated flies for trout. I've phoned round all my local shops and none of them sell the articulated shanks. Could I use wadington shanks?

    grxi + rod alternatives

    as the title suggests Im looking at maybe getting a new river rod and like the idea of the grey with extension peice to cover all bases. It gets great reviews but at £270ish is more than i want to pay. So is there any cheaper alternatives that are as good and can quickly adapt lengths. Thanks
