    Must add, my original Simms is not velcro, is clip buckle type. This is the version. https://www.sportfish.co.uk/simms-back-saver-wading-belt.html

    Lumber support wading belt: Opinions/recommendations?

    Have one of the original Simms lumbar support belts, purchased sometime late 90's. Have had a lower vertebrae issue since my mid 20's Is great, keeps me straight, and probably more important supports lower spine and keeps it warm. Surprised at Jims comment, as I have "fuller figure" too, and...

    Everyone should use adblocker ultimate. No adds, no scammers. At least use adblocker for a few weeks anyway. Would soon focus minds on what adds are acceptable, and those that are just a plain pain.

    Correct way.?

    Fish barbless. Get the fish into side so you can see it/photo it still in water. Release the pressure on rod, let loose some line allowing total slack, 9 times out of 10, fish will self release under slack line. 10 th time? frying pan!

    Bit of a shame that Knowledge of the area was never mentioned in the required criteria for employment. Would be good if someone with knowledge of area got the job.

    Your opinions on this?

    Yeah, ok, but the title, and most of the commentary is just pure marketing blurb. You know, best rod ever, best line ever, that sort of shitz! Good luck to him and his business, but best, sorry "finest" trout stream in England? Hmmm.

    Where to buy?

    Barbless flies do very good quality, true to pattern, wets and sea trout patterns. Some of the "sets" of said flies are the best I have come across, and used. Next on list for wets would be Fulling Mill. For lures and "specials" Dave Downie produces some of the best out there.

    Rainbow Trout: Carl Beck (River Lune trib)

    Man you do your research! However, facts remain the same. Rainbows, as in un triploided, still sexed fish do not have the required breeding conditions in UK. Wye fish are/were a mystery, but I believe they are now almost gone.

    Laser Fly Rods from Sportfish in Bridge Sollars

    You might have been right on the Parkinson front too though. I bought a lazer 11' # 7 way back then (early 80's) too, still have it, its a bleedyn heavy piece of kit compared to to-days offerings. Pretty sure it was from one of the Parkinson fledgeling companies, might have been sportfish. Only...
