    Do you know what this is called?

    I have noticed that on several pike fly tying videos,mainly from Paul Monaghan,that they use a brown tubular plastic clip which opens like a bulldog clip and is used to hold long streamer hair out of the way whilst the head of the fly is finished. Does any one know what this clip is called or...

    Not sure if this is in the right place. On Friday I received an e mail supposedly from DPD saying that they had tried to deliver an item the previous day and that unless I paid for redelivery immediately the item would be returned to the sender. This seemed a bit suspicious as we had both been...

    A little advice please!

    I am looking to have a go at Pike Fishing on the fly. I have decided that a 9'#9 rod is the norm but can anyone advise me as to what to buy. Would a kit from the likes of Vision or Guideline be best or would I be better to buy rod and reel seperately/ I see that a lot of these set ups come with...

To start with I joined my local club which has a good range of stillwaters plus a trout pool and several miles of mixed fishing on the Kentish Stour. Having...

    You never know until you try!!

I was amazed at the...

    Classic Flies-New Materials (well some anyway)

    Tried out some of the new UNI-Flexx and Sybai Ultrafine flat wire on a Black Pennel plus a similar fly in Olive. I found the Flexx to be very easy to work with and very strong also with loads of stretch if needed. The Sybai wire forms a very nice rib as long as it is treated with care, it does...

    Just a few experimental flies

    I have been experimenting with the new ultrafine flat wire from sybai. It is very easy to use although it isn't as robust as normal wire,however the results are great. As it is a very low profile wire it doesn't add any real bulk to the fly but shows up really well but in a very subtle way. I...
