    Sucessful hook up.

    It can be tough to get the timing right with striking, after a while you will probably just get the knack for it without knowing what you're doing differently. Try different timings, its difficult but wait a breath between seeing the take and striking and see if that helps. it sounds like you...

    Cortland Sylk lines

    I also agree with the above. The lines are lovely to use, thin, very supple and also I think they look right. A cane rod with a flourescent orange line is just so wrong :D . I keep meaning to try real silk but haven't done so yet so can't compare. All the best. Pat

    Wye and Usk

    I can also vouch for both Gromain and the B & B . Also ring the Trust the day before and ask them for their opinion, they are very happy to tell you what is fishing well and what isn't in your chosen river type. And when you decide to try the smaller streams, get yourself on the Clettre for...

    a little help please

    Hi, I often fish Wye tributaries and smaller rivers and I find an Orvis superfine 7.6 4wt is perfect. In fact like the rod so much I sometimes use it on the main Wye for Grayling, you don't need anything bigger. Whereas an 8ft + rod will be too big for some of the real mountainy streams...

    Varnish reccomendation for cane

    Hi Tim, I do remember and I'm glad it worked out so well. The rod looks great, I'm not surprised it was well received. But tell me, at what stage do you apply the 16yr old Malt, before or after varnishing ?;) Good to hear from you. Cheers Pat

    Pearsall's

    Hi Rod, I think you would still run into problems choosing the right silk as the colour will change depending on what finish you use anyway. If you know roughly what colours you are looking for send me a pm and I can send you small length of each for you to wrap and varnish to check the match.

    Thinking of having a go: Part 2 1/2

    Good luck with both the build and the inlays. 've been a bit busy lately and haven't done much myself but I did have a practice go on an old bamboo but section using grizzly saddle feathers (which are suitably long and thin) and the blue portion of a jay wing and the coours stay true with or...
