    Cleaning fly lines

    As all of us, not been fishing for a while, and now's probably the time to clean my fly lines which are all on the reels. I have a bottle of line slick, just thinking of the best way to clean them? Want to be ready for the time we can get back to fishing 🎣 🤔

    Any information on using a linewinder as I haven't used one before? I noticed a few weeks ago, that Wobblyface had sent for one and I would like to ask him what make, how he got on with it, and can it also be used to wind backing onto the reel? Advice from anyone would be much appreciated.

    Landing nets

    Wondering which landing nets people are using on still waters these days. I've just bought the Wychwood bank net. It's extendable, light weight but very sturdy. There is a spike on the end which can be stuck into the ground, the head adjusts to any angle....can be used as a line tray. Good...

    Grey's cassette

    Thinking about buying a new cassette reel. I like the new Grey's QRS as it is rated for two size spools, 5/6 line and 7/8 line which I think is a good idea. I also like the Snowbee Spectre cassette, the 5/6 one. I think you can also put a 7w line on this spool. A novice, so would really...

    Fishing lines

    Being relatively new to fly fishing, not sure if below makes sense, but could someone tell me the difference between a fast intermediate fly line and a slow sinking line or in fact a fast sinking line, because I am thinking that if I had a fast sinking intermediate line why would I need a...

    Info please

    I am new to fly fishing, so could I ask for some info on the air flow poly leader? As I see it there is 5ft and 10ft leaders would it be better if fishing a river for wild brownies to use the 5ft one? Would you then use the 10 ft on still water? There seems to be 7 different densities. Also...
