I've just been informed that as of 29th November there will be "No Fishing" from Grafham Dam.
It seems a "walker" was caught in the face by an angler, so fishing will be suspended from the Dam - Anglian Water are asking for anglers comments by 20th December after which a statement will be made...
Carbon fly rod handles are becoming more popular but I still have reservations, is it just another load of marketing hype from the tackle industry ??
Has anyone tried them ?
Are they more sensitive ( than cork) as claimed?
Do they last well, are they robust?
Do they slip in your hand when...
Does anyone have any experience or recommendations they care to share with me ?.
I'm looking to visit Canada in 2022 with my wife and son specifically for a fishing holiday. ...a log cabin, river and a lake in the middle of nowhere would be ideal for us..
Just back from a 2 week fish-a-thon with my wife and son.
We initially fished Clywedog for 3 days and after the recent hot weather the vast majority of the fish were deep
Di8's with Cormorants and boobies was the way to go some 25 to 40 seconds down depending on wind speed.
The Cages and...
Selling a lever vice, that's basically a Regal copy.
It's used and has scrapes but is in good working order with a 8lb stone pedestal base ( with felt bottom) so it won't tip or scratch the table.
Holds hooks very well as you can see from the bent out B175.
Too heavy to post so buyer...

Just a topic for discussion really, no right or wrong answers and not intending to cause an argument........But I think there is a lot of tackle that doesn't get the kudos/respect it deserves for one reason or another and equally a lot of tackle that just gets too much.
We decided to have a weekend away for a change and fish waters we don't usually visit that frequently.
Friday and it was Blithfield, 24c , 3mph winds and not a cloud in the sky.
The water was a "tea stained" colour with around 7ft visibility very similar to many of the Welsh waters

Very good condition, Jaws and lever/cam replaced last year by Dynaking as I sent it back to USA for service.
Dynaking also fitted a Delrin knob upgrade on the side ( black) that allows a type of rotary function, although the original screw is also available should you want it back to...
I've been out a fair bit over the last 3 weeks on Rutland, Grafham, Pitsford, Ravensthope and Draycote.
It's been a simular story on all the waters. ( except Rutland where the fish are mostly 5 to 30m out in 8 to 10ft of water)
The water clarity is around 12 to 15ft everywhere so very...
Tied up a few weighted "Nemo" variants this afternoon for early season when you need to fish that bit deeper......well 15ft down 😉
Nice and heavy, nice big profile to stand out at depth, plenty of colour too. A nymph that works like a lure for those traditionalists.
Hook: Size 10 Fulling Mill...
