I was meant to be fishing for salmon in Northumberland next week. Unfortunately, the rivers are drier than a camel's armpit.
I've booked the week off work so will look to go elsewhere. Can anyone recommend some venues within a couple of hours of North Wales?
Ideally I'm looking...
Does anyone have contact details for Deer Creek or any of their staff? I ordered a bottle of UV resin on 30th March which still hasn't been dispatched. I wouldn't normally be bothered but when they charge £4 delivery I expect it to be shipped promptly.
I've already tried calling...
As per the title, my reel has snapped whilst trying to get it out of a Hardy Zenith rod. Reel seat mechanism has been quite stiff/uncomfortable on the rod for quite some time, but now part of the reel has actually snapped and is stuck inside the rod. Any suggestions and how to get it out? 😫😫...

I recently acquired a box of flies after the passing of a local fisher from the same village. He tied all of his flies in the hand...A lot of the flies are broken/rusty, but I would love to try and tie a few of them myself, as he was always more successful than anyone else on our local...

Anyone encountered any good deals that are worth sharing? A couple that I've seen:
Stonfo Taimen fly tying vice for £104.99 (£40-50 cheaper than anyone else) from Upavon Fly Fishing. I'm not sure it's even a black friday deal or not but worth sharing.
Airflo have some reductions on their...

Does anyone have recommendations for a multi tip line for Sea Trout fishing at night? I fish with a single handed 10' #7.
I've seen a few from the likes of Rio but they seem to be for double handed or switch rods and are quite expensive.... Does such a line system exist for single handers...
I've read on here previously of a few charities that take people fly fishing. I think one was called Let's Tackle Cancer, and the other takes service men who suffer from PTSD out... But I can't remember the name. I believe that the organisers might be members of this forum... Can anyone point me...

Had my first 'night' fish this season last night. I caught it around 1am on a teal blue and silver variant.I weighed it at just over 2.5 lbs.
I posted the photo on a facebook page, some think its a salmon, others a sea trout. What do you think?
