    Reconditioned Kelts

    In my opinion its more than worthwhile, to rivers doing same, given the current state of salmon returns. Natal broodstock, proven to be able to make the journey, out, and back. That is golddust in current situation. Long may it continue. Perhaps we should be funding same on all rivers that have...

    Really? Did you see the footage of the police in the parks? They have never actually been closed, just as long as we stick to the advice given when using the parks. Seems a lot of people think the advice does not apply to them. Which ultimately, will lead to tougher restrictions. regards Bert

    Moral dilemma with COVID

    It is an interesting point though. "Because PEEP is not a benign mode of therapy and because it can lead to serious hemodynamic consequences, the ventilator operator should have a definite indication to use it. The addition of external PEEP is typically justified when a PaO2 of 60 mm Hg cannot...

    Nail knotted loop or braided?

    It (the needle knot) is exactly the same as nail knot in terms of tying and formation. Basic difference is with needle knot, the material used is fed up through the fly line, whereas with the nail knot, it lies on the flyline. Technically, for a nail knot to work perfectly, the turns must "bite"...

    I am going to do opposite Douglas. I am going to stay in, laze in back garden (totally fenced in) and take some rays. Will be the odd nutter lets their dog attack my back gate, as my pack roam garden at will, but given what has occured to me and mine recently with the cycling brigade, will be...

    They are exempt, as classed as key workers, just as they can take car or public service to the place of work as their commute. The peleton of mamils in alien helmets aint in that category. Time they were pulled in. regards Bert

    Moral dilemma with COVID

    And if whilst out fishing, you infect just one person, who will infect others, some will die. You as a Respiratory Care Practitioner, having treated patients, should know better. The 5g thing is nonsense. 5G broadband in a wireless situation has been active throughout the world for years...

    Tying these traditional salmon flies is more than an art form, it always amazes me the amount of individual parts to the tying. Nought wrong with the head, when taken into perspective, and the few wing fibres, cripes man, that is a gorgeous fly. regards Bert

    Will be wearing my shoes to-morrow. But this time will be two adult dogs, well trained to sit and stay, as well as defending their owner, will also be two lengths of well seasoned hazel wands in my hands. Dogs will be parked broadside on what is a footpath, hazel wands will be ready to break a...

    Me too Al. Could walk to several lochs/ponds/rivers within 15/20 minutes, once there would be perfect isolation. However, might just get run over by the peleton of bikes on the way! Something has to be done about this situation. Wife takes out a single dog each afternoon, rotates the dog, so...

    Moral dilemma with COVID

    Thats all fine if you could teleport from one location to another. The minute you suggest "drive" risk assesment goes through the roof, Add on walking around in mountains, and the alarm bells go into overdrive. OK, in a normal world, all that is minimal risk. However, right now, this is not a...

    Eating of shot game

    Come out my way one evening, and you can choose the pair you want. Problem is, you will have to nail them with my air rifle! Have a live population of around 30 or so that sit and watch as i Take me dogs out. Dogs are trained not to chase the wee bunny wunnies, and we can get as close as 15 foot...

    Moral dilemma with COVID

    Nought to do with sky. Indeed all channels that have adverts will have pre paid slots that advertisers bought prior to this madness. Just watched one for cruises, think it was Olsen, but not sure. Was followed by one about electric motor cars, and then one from tesco, real time, giving advice...
