    River Rod - What would you recommend?

    What rod would you recommend for fishing rivers that is 9ft and #6 weight and have a slower action? Is there anything out there that is good value? Does anyone make anything similar to the old Vision Cult rods? I am not sure if this was replaced by anything else? I presume it was discontinued?

    Spiders for Summer

    I had a small vice thing when I was really young and gave it a blast. It just wasn't for me. You should have seen the concoction I made. It was like a Gremlins cocoon. Maybe at some stage in the future I will give it another go. I just don't have the time for it right now.

    EA Rod License rather expensive

    The EA Rod Licence has increased 11% in price to a whopping £82. Is it time that they gave a monthly payment option so you can spread the payments out? Or should the License be scrapped altogether? :whistle:

    Chelker Reservoir fishing rights?

    I seem to recall that the fishing rights on Chelker belonged or used to belong to a club called "Etonians" or something like this but I am unable to find anything about them.

    Great work! I don't hear too much of the game fishing on the continent except for the odd few posts on the Ebro and its Catfish, Zander, Carp and other coarse fish. Basque country looks great.
