    Whiting on the fly

    When I was boat fishing I used to catch a lot of whiting on white feathers, so I can't see any reason why fly won't work, good luck.

    New line

    If you have a man cave with a vice, just use a long bolt and clamp it in the vice, just on a slight angle then the spool of line won't fall off , it works for me.

    A thumbs-up for Barbless Flies

    Can't beat barbless, when you net the trout, the hook usually falls out and the fish can easily be returned without damage.

    Flies for Stocked Trout Scotland

    Anything Black & Green usually works early season, but trout will have a go at anything at this time of the year. Depth it is fished is just as important as the lure, if the trout are down a bit and you are using a floating line, use a lure with a bead head to get the fly down.

    Sunray lines

    Hugh Falkus "sea trout fishing"

    A long time ago I went to a talk and film show by Hugh Falkus, it was a great night, and at the time he was very well known, he was one of the very lucky anglers who had a private bit of river to fish. Of course the talk didn't end there, it was an outlet to sell his book, and I think most...
