    Bit random but what do expect. A duck in a tree.

    The other day I saw a duck in a tree. I'd never seen a duck in a tree before. Just a normal duck, the kind you feed bread to. Looked completely out of place. Do ducks frequent trees often or is this a bit of a rarity? An odd duck. It really did look weird, a duck waddling along a branch, was a...

    Rain (The romance & the truth)

    Some like to sing in it, others like to be taken to dance naked in it. Some like piña colada's and getting caught in it. I personally can't bloody stand it, it makes everything harder, lines sticking to rods. Wet clothes, can't dry your hands. Knots become a puzzle. It just sucks in general...

    Felt a bit weird (Well more weird than usual, which is actually saying something) Anyhoo went on a boat yesterday, was great.

    Yesterday (All my troubles seemed so far away) sorry have to do that after the word yesterday (All my troubles seemed so far away) Anyways I went out on a boat at Farmoor reservoir. Was quite possibly one of my greatest fishing experiences, loved it. I went with Terryswindon, whose boat handling...

    As much as I enjoy the exploits of the Manchester caster club/Glasgow casting club/North east, North west casting clubs. The time has come to put it out there and see if anyone from these areas fancy a crack at it. I practice as much as possible at the local park and on water at the cress beds...

    Funny things feet, anyone pay any attention to them when they are practice casting? You can move them you know and subtle things happen. People don't look down much, seem to always be looking up. Watching hands etc. Just wondered if anyone looks at their feet I do! (Obviously relates to...

    A question to trade members/purveyors of goods.

    Morning. A quick question regarding buying items off trade members, is it ok to just order a few bits. Or do most trade members prefer a minimum order. What I mean is if I want to buy, say a packet of hooks with a cash value of say £3+postage is that ok? Sean

    Faults, purposefully done.

    Been concentrating on creating faults in my casts lately, ie create a tailing loop, cack tracking, stop the rod to high to low etc etc. Anyone else go out there and cock up on purpose, have found it just as useful as good form. Sean

    This looks good

    I saw/read about this DVD on Michael Heritages blog. Looks good, shall have to purchase it I think. Looking at this small snippet I think I'll enjoy it. I quite like the polite simple commentary. Anyone on here bought or watched it all yet nearly 3hrs of instruction from a casting guru for 20...

    Shooting heads as a learning aid

    As above, are there any pros/cons to using a shooting head as a guide. To loop shapes, hauling, just general line & rod control. You know. Can using a shooting head, give a clearer picture of faults in hauling, loading etc etc. Or is one; better off just sticking to WF/DT lines, my usual...

    More double haul issues

    Having a wee bit of trouble hauling on the backcast, with softer rods. If I haul with a shakespere trion 7wt (stiff as a poker). No problems at all. Yet for some reason, when I haul on the backcast with a redington (Bit softer). I seem to get slack, it's as if I can't quite give the line back...

    Silent drag on reels. Which

    Evening, I wonder if you could use your collective knowledge and come up with a few makes of reels. That don't click, when you pull line off the reel. I don't like that clicky sound, the Koma is pretty quiet, just wondered if there were any others that don't click. Sean
