    Club water 25/5/21

    Cheers Bert, no all smaller ones but the place was boiling with fish, an amazing sight watching the fish go crazy. Only one other boat out so nearly had the place to myself.

    Club water 25/5/21

    Was at the Loch last night, a huge hatch of what looked like Caenis but instead of white body they were black, the place was boiling with fish & very frustrating casting at them. Managed 6 in the end but i think it was more persistance than any skill lol

    Brown hen hackle?

    Hi im a newbie to fly tying but been doing it since lockdown & i love it & have caught a few fish on my own flies. Im looking at tying crunchers & wets with a brown hackle, there are plenty places selling black hen hackle but not brown. What do you guys use for a wet/cruncher hackle? thanks George

    G3 breaking

    I love G3, cheap & never lets me down. Not tried the new label stuff yet but will be gutted if its not the same. Anyone use maxima flouro? Might try that as the mono is great stuff for the money

    To buy or not to buy?

    I think the Nite Catapult is quite a fast rod, i have a Clearwater & the Onki is pretty similar in action i would say. I love the Onki, its a great rod for the money

    Thinking of fly tying? Worried about neatness?

    Agree, how many times does your nicely tied fly catch a fish & ends up chewed & coming apart & still continues to catch, sometimes better

    Traditional Flies for Rainbows

    When there are buzzers on the water a Black Pennel works a treat for Rainbows as well as Browns i find. Also when there are sedges an Invicta or Green Peter
