    Airflo waders and Boots

    Hi castaway 3, there's my review on the Airtex waders from Jan 14, in reviews. Two years on and the Delta boots that were part of the usp have died a death. They peeled on top of the boot and started cracking. I now use the Airtex boots which are brill. As for the waders, well over two years...

    Airflo Fly Lines Kinked

    This just makes me laugh. As soon as someone slates an Airflo floater, out come the usual suspects?? If you store your line on the reel for months, without using it then expect it to perform without question, then your asking a lot from any fly line??? I fish a lot of Airflo floaters...

    Airflo Super Dri lines

    Aside from Elite - I've fished them all. Those who know me, know I love Airflo lines simple. Super Dri is technology that needs very little introduction here. This technology doesn't leech from the line over time. As a consequence Super Dri lines float where they should. Right on top of the...

    Llyn-Brenig

    Hi ZT, we fished last Saturday. Only managing 4 to the boat. a typical hard fighting Brenig Bow We ignored very good advice and fished the wrong method, using sinkers with Damsels and lures. Stupidity really. My best Damsel. A good fish taker on the day We should have fished floaters and...

    New wading Jacket needed.

    Hi spa4, You not tried re-proofing with something like, wash in Nikwax TX10. I still have my old Aquatex and that's been re-proofed once or twice. It could save you the cost of buying a new jacket?? Best regards Stuart;-)

    Best rod/rod manufacturer?

    +1 on that Angus. I have three of them and they are just sweet as a nut. You'll never beat a rod that's not only personalised, with fittings of your choosing. But the actions on Stevie's rods are just superb. Faultless, is the word I was looking for! Best regards Stuart;-)

    Safe c&r

    Depends on how it's hooked and the fish size? Sometimes when fishing small buzzers, the hook is lodged in the top lip, but turned over, making unhooking difficult without touching the fish. For big fish I'll always use the net. You can turn them over to calm em down and revive them until they...

    Midge tip suggestions

    Hi bibio1st, I use mini tips quite a bit. Airflo offer up a good mix of lengths and densities to suit most people's tastes. I use the 6ft slow & 6ft fast sink, plus the 3ft mini tip. I can cover most situations with these, because the deepest part of the fishery I frequent is only 15ft deep...

    Why are wader sizes hopeless.

    A lot depends on the neoprene sock. A thicker neo build can add up to a centimetre to the overall size of the sock. Look at the sizing chart on the link Foot sizing is taken quite generally by most tackle manufacturers, but we're all individuals with different needs and sizes. You could...
