    Cased Caddis, Cactus Chenille

    Good morning. Does anyone use 'cactus chenille' to tye the cased/peeping caddis as per Hans Weilenmann? Looks like it creates a good effect, but just wondering what 'size' to get (length of the fibres I'm guessing). If anyone can advise I'll be very grateful, thank you very much. Del

    Second World War Novels

    On Kindle I've read 2 novels recently on WW2, but focussing on Italy, the first one Naples and the second one Milan and the North. I guess we've always focussed on our own misery re wars and as kids we were always fed a certain line regarding Italy's 'role' in WW2 hence it was interesting to...

    FishingMad/Newmill Fishing

    I mentioned some Bison Waders in Tackle Talk that I bought recently from FishingMad/Newmill. I decided against them due to the sizing just not being right for me, hence returned them. They were delivered today late morning and the refund issued at around Midday. Fantastic. Thank you very much...

    Norris Fly Lines

    I'm probably slow on the uptake, but in case it's not been noticed, Norris have introduced their latest own brand range of fly lines, the N1 I think they're called. I have a couple of their old P3 ones still going well, hopefully these'll be better......they must be as it's a new range:whistle:

    Cortland 444 Classic, WF3F, Peach colour, Used, £7.50 incl postage SOLD

    SOLD Hi, As above, but not used much, I would guess 5 or 6 times....however, it's nowhere near new and seems to have some memory in it which, in my experience, is unusual for a Cortland 444. A good stretch and it's sorted, but causes some inconvenience, especially on a cold day. Comes with a...

    The Future of Rugby and other contact sport.

    We held an internet streamed funeral at our club today for one of our members who passed away a few weeks ago. All went as well as possible, but after a beer or 2, the conversation got a little subdued when the chairman/president of the club mentioned he couldn't see when any games would be...
