    Flies that just dont work.....for me

    Talking of the Peter Ross, a guy I knew fished Witton Lakes in County Durham for years and caught the majority of his fish on it, if asked, he said he was using buzzers and Dawsons.

    Check out this vintage classic I just bought..

    I'm not 100% certain, but somewhere in the back of my head, I think the reels were made by Olympic, a Japanese reel manufacturer.

    Ouch! Tales of falling, slipping and sliding.

    I'm a below knee amputee, once, after fishing a pool, I had to climb over a fence to get to the next pool, I got over, but put my leg into a rabbit hole, snapping the prosthetic limb in half, I looked like a cross between Tolouse Latrec and Quasimodo going back to the car. It was over 400 yards...

    What's the strangest thing that happened to you whilst fishing?

    Caught a bat and a duck while fly fishing during the night, my best one though, was watching and being invited to join a naturist swimming in a deep pool, just to add, the naturist was female, otherwise I would not have gone in! :fish2:

    River wear

    I was walking the dog on Wolsingham stretch last Wednesday and note from a large stone on the bankside, that the water was 17 inches below normal level, the water is moving, but is very slow and a bit warm. There was no fly life about and no fish taking on the top, wether there were fish...

    Finally, a hatch!

    I was walking the dog on the middle reaches of the River Wear last night and actually saw a hatch of flies, the first I've personally seen in any number this year, but no fish were showing, even in the deeper, slower and more sheltered pools. A friend called me this morning to tell me, he fished...

    A right royal boost for healthier rivers

    The situation is as Bumble said, the EA are stocking the rivers of the North East for free, but trout have to be triploid and paid for by the individual clubs and syndicates. What's the point of putting barren fish in the rivers when the trout numbers are already very low? The Tyne and the Wear...

    Dire circumstances.

    Surely number of fish rising doesn't necessarily equate to the number of fish in the river!? I agree with your statement Northern Fly, but many fishermen I've spoken to and had meetings with for the last 15-20 years, all sing from the same hymn sheet, fish are no where near the numbers there...

    Landmark court case.

    Anglers along the River Wear, from source to sea, have for years, suffered illegal canoeing and on many occasion, verbal abuse and threatened with violence, I have been one of a great deal of people who have been targeted. The EA are aware of this issue and don't want to know, they claim the...
