    Where have they gone?

    On a daily basis at all hours of the day I am fortunate enough to have a wide variety of birds come to the feeders in the garden. Last few days though, nothing. Not even the dunnock. The feeders haven’t been touched looking at the levels. I did some work in the garden recently but finished...

    Do fish change re salt?

    Picked this comment up off an osprey web cam group I pop onto now and again: “Seafish have a way of protecing themselves from salt.... Salmon & trout need to undergo a change when moving into seawater from fresh” Please excuse my ignorance but (a) is this correct? and (b) what changes if it’s...

    Rule bending?

    I know this only applies to international rules in fly fishing but, would wrapping a piece of fly line such as an off cut from a booby basher line or a di7 around the shank of a hook before dressing it be allowed under said international rules? Would it make any difference?

    Moc Morgan.

    Just heard that Moc has passed away today. Sad loss and deepest sympathy to the family. Typical of Moc though, he turned up yesterday at Clywedog to support the Welsh Youth trial as usual. Fitting in a way.

    Advice re rod choice

    Need some advice please. Thinking of treating myself to a new rod. Now, due to my ability :omg: I prefer mid to tip action so have narrowed it down to either the Greys GS30 or the Sonik SK4 XTR. Any feedback good or bad would be appreciated. I don't think I'll be able to try before I buy in...

    £85.3 million

    I'm not a Spurs fan but this transfer for Gareth Bale is so wrong. Not the amount, not the club buying, not Spurs but the way a player who is on a contract decides he wants to move and by his actions basically holds a gun to the head of his employer to get what he wants. He and these other...

    Engine noise

    Please excuse me if this has been done before. Does the sound of a boat powered by a petrol engine on a large stillwater frighten fish from the area it is travelling in? Had a recent conversation with some bank anglers who felt that this was the case and that's why a 50 metre distance from the...

    Another Author on the Forum

    Congratulations to Mr. George Barron aka "teutcher" on here for his article in June edition of Total Flyfisher. Another interesting piece especially as it talks about lakes local to my area. I know I posted one yesterday about our "Scratch" having an article in T&S but I think it speaks volumes...

    "Scratch" in Trout and Salmon

    I don't usually buy T&S but had to buy the June edition as after seeing the cover and the headline EXCLUSIVE - "The Threadless Buzzer."

    Which Rod?

    I have been fortunate enough to at last find a rod that suits my casting ability - a 3 piece Hardy Demon 10' #7. I wish that I'd found my perfect rod sooner as they have now stopped making them in 3 piece. My question is, are there any other rods out there in your opinion that matches the Hardy...
