    Press Manor nr. Chesterfield

    NeilH and I were washed off the Derbyshire Wye today. We asked about any still water fishery nearby and were directed to Press Manor, about 20mins. away. What a delightful fishery it is. Run by Bernie Maher, who guides on the Peacock Water, it is really well cared for and appears to contain...

    The Lugg, tomorrow?

    Bit of a bore putting it in twice but tomorrow is looming. Anyone got any thoughts on the likely condition of the Lugg, tomorrow? MikeB and I have a day booked at Lyepole. I don't really understand the guages, per Web Cams, but I should think level is OK, it's more the colour. Can anyone...

    The Lugg at Lyepole

    Anyone know how the Lugg is fairing after all this rain? Last comment from WUF was "up but dropping". We have booked for Wednesday, any help appreciated. Haven't fished it before so any other opinions also appreciated. TIA

    Spitfire Perfect or St. George

    My Wife has been left a small Lagacy by a deceased relative and Bless Her, she wants to share it with me :) She wants me to have something I could never buy for myself and after a token protest "it's your money, you must spend it on yourself" etc., I reluctantly agreed. I'm looking for a Hardy...

    J Austen Forbes "Farmington" reel For Sale

    SOLD I imported this reel from the States to go with the Streamflex I currently have on offer in the Classifieds. It is made in England and anyone who knows them will tell you what quality bits of kit they are. Often described as having a movement like a Swiss Watch and looks to match. The...

    Greys Streamflex. 6'6" #3 4 piece for Sale

    I bought this rod as a “just in case” because it was cheap. Well, I’ve had it a year and never used it since I always finish up using my 7’6” ZXL for small streams. Don’t want to try and make money from it. I paid £80 and that’s what I will take for it plus £7.50 RMSD. Current retail is £180...

    SharkSkin WF#6F for sale

    I bought this line from a Forum Member who couldn’t get on with it. My choice was coming down to one of these or a Rio Gold for a new rod I have just acquired. Having tried them both, my preference is the Rio Gold line so I would like to move the Sharkskin on. Some people love these lines, some...

    Tam Gair, a recommendation

    May I commend Tam Gair to Forum Mambers as one of the most honest and reliable dealers I have ever dealt with. He runs a Vintage Tackle Business and I have had a couple of dealings with him, recently. On the second occasion, in particular, his Service was exemplary. I phoned him Sunday...

    The ZXL/XP swap available again

    Due to a genuine error the guy who wanted to do this swap mistook the length. His rod is 9'6 and I want a 9'. So, I'm reposting in case somebody missed the boat. A Z-Axis would also be fine >>I never thought I'd get rid of any of my ZXLs. However, I seldom fish a big enough river to use...

    Want to Swap ZXL#4 9' 4 piece

    I never thought I'd get rid of any of my ZXLs. However, I seldom fish a big enough river to use anything other that my favourite 8'6" #5 or 7'6" #4. I am keen to get my hands on a 9ft. #5 Sage XP for still water and can't afford or justify the £275 or so they seem to command. I already have a...

    Sage 2550 Reel, Silver

    SEE PRICE DROP LOWER DOWN My "Retro" phase continues with an impulse acquition of a JLH Ultralite. As a result, I have a Silver Spooled Sage Reel which is surplus to requirements. Real nice looking reel, this but it has seen some action and the Black Enamel Cage has been "dinged". I have tried...

    Greys Streamflex 10' #4

    SOLD I am going to sell this rod since, for a number of reasons, I find the extra foot over my nine footers a bit much to weild all day. It has not seen a lot of use, since I had it new and none at all for the last twelve months. A superb, some would say the definative, Czech Nymphing and...

    Monsal via Matlock

    Actually, it is fishing related. I'm fishing Monsal Dale next week. My most direct route is Derby/Matlock on the A6. However, the last time I drove that route Matlock was being dug up, seemingly all of it!!! Something to do with a new road pattern for Sainsburys. Does any one know if it is...

    Snowbee Geo Clothing. My opinion

    Following a recent loss of weight, I was faced with the agonising decision to replace my superb Simms G4 Jacket, as it was falling off me! No way could I afford to lash out £400 on another one so I examined alternatives and decided on the new Snowbee Geo Range. I have to say I am very, very...
