Well with one week left I had a welcome surprise of this 35inch fish this morning. Its not as coloured as the other salmon I've been seeing either.
I know its not fly fishing but I thought it was a good fish and that I'd share it.
A quiet stocked fishery part of Cockermouth anglers is set to be drained sadly by United Utilities. I don't fish the place my self but a good friend of mine who sadly passed last year loved the place and had a memorial bench placed there for other anglers to use. I feel rather sad that his bench...
Hi guys just after abit of advice looking to get a cheap starter camera for a 12 year old girl who wants to get into photography.
Her main aim is for landscapes and then on the other far end of the spectrum is close details like eyes etc.

How do you store your flies for the winter months?
I've tried to take mine apart neatly with a Stanley blade to store the materials for a few months before rebuilding the flies. I've noticed with this method it can cause a lot of waste especially with hackles and thread.
So what do you do?
After doing a forum search for the original materials for a bruiser it seems there is no information on here apart from a couple of variants does any one know the original dressing for the fly?
Is it blue body and blue tail or black body and blue tail?
Just looking for some advice really of some simple minnow patterns as a lot of the trout feed on them up here early season. Got a few silver patterns on the go already Peter Ross, teal blue and silver, muddler minnows, ace of spades but off the top of my head can't seem to think of much more.
Good afternoon chaps wile out for a wander over some marsh land with the collie I came across this wing top of the picture I'm not sure what it is at a guess I would say woodcock or snipe but if any one is wiser it would be a help and in the lower of the picture a few of these feathers though...
I've avoided posting flys on here for awile now as I've only for a camera phone and the quality is awful but this time I gave it ago with some variants I tied last night I can imagen them fishing very well on the cumbrian still waters though I've never tried the pattern I can't wait to see how...
Good evening all after fits of rage and tantrums I can not tie winged wet flys to save my self something as simple as a butcher can throw me into a bloodlust within seconds how on earth do you get the wings right? I cut them off two equal feathers then I mess it up.:mad:
To be honest over never caught a WBT on anything other than traditional flys has any one ever caught one from what I call the rainbow flys like boobies cat whisskers fritz etc? Or any other strange flys?
