Hi all I took a punt on a reel, if it ever comes. It doesn’t seem to have a serial number on the reel. I think it’s a Mk1 Hardy Angel or a decent fake? Anyway I’m not too fussed as I only paid £40 for it .

I went out on the Knaresborough Horseshoe, worked below a the bridge and then tried the fast waters on the other side..... nothing.
Then I was on …. to what I thought was welly boot, never got it out ( it was a fish probably in excess of 4 lbs).
Then had two grayling on the more sluggish rides...
Short Vid of the trout from River Rye last week. Hopefully there again soon!

I Had a terrible start, went up onto the Ure on the Bradford Stretch and water was still cold last month, a few rises.
Luckily broke my duck on the Rye (last friday) it was pissing down but muggy air, so when the rain stopped fish did start to rise, i had beautiful wild brownies about 1 1/2...
I've recently got hold of a guideline LPXE, now my former rod was a sage flight and the two rods are distances apart the guideline is very stiff and the safe is very floppy. I had a couple of casts with the new guideline and it felt very odd.
What changes should I be making to my casting?
Dont mind a bit of commercialism! especially as it is usually the time of fishing sales!
Would love a guidline waistbag as i have no carry options for my gear! But would definitely not buy it full price.
Ive also been saving for a new camera setup for more fishing piccies!
I have a Rio in touch gold line and previous a Rio Lt trout and i have been far from impressed!
The lt trout line straight out the package coiled, i didn't panic too much, i cleaned and stretched the line.... still no avail.
Took it back
Got the Rio in touch gold, again slightly coiled...
Hoping a few locals might be kicking around the forum to help me with this.
Spent a considerable amount on fishing this year, probably over 180 quids worth!
So next year i am going to join up with either the ASA or BCAA. Based in Knaresborough area. Only fish fly really and was hoping...
