    Spool removal.. Change..

    Exactly what Brendan said, if it’s stiff and won’t pull off try soaking the reel in hot water for ten minutes, it might just be grunge. S.

    The 30th approaches..

    Had a few nice fish early season but no proper rain since June has ruined this season, doubt I’ll get a decent day in before the 30th now. Only 6.5 months until open day again.:cry: S.

    Neoprene Spool Bands.

    I mentioned these to you before Jimmy, they are 12” long by 1” wide. From Workzone a pack of 12 was I think about £2. Theyll cover the largest spools.

    Tyne & Eden – Seeking Local Knowledge

    Cormorants were seen in there hundreds John three years ago, one Appleby member counted over 80 in one field drying off.

    The two lads with me today did just that, but I can’t keep up with them anymore, half a mile up and half a mile down from the car park is my lot. It is hard going indeed. S.

Trouble is the valley is always windy, no trees at all, very rugged and unspoilt. It isn’t my favourite place to fish it’s very tiring after a few hours and it’s a very...

    Half the time you’re dapping as the wind lifts the fly off the water, it’s tricky stuff and the wading is as dangerous as it gets. S.

    Wild Trout and Grayling fishing 2021.

    Had a pleasant day on the upper Tees today, no fish pics but no one blanked. It was hard work strong downstream wind as always, stuck on dries and had a few small ones. It was warm and sunny, I even had a snooze on the bank at lunchtime. A few grouse dropping in I think there was a walked up day...
