    why have the trout gone deep?

    I didn't think May had been that warm, but according to the weather buffs it has been. It does not need to be that much warmer for many hours longer to really heat up the small Stillwaters.

    British Fly Casting Club (BFCC)

    I would say the latter James. I still squirm when I see Lasse's clip of casting a 12 line on a v light rod... These things can be done, but at the expense of distance or the rod blank. I am still yet to try a five line on my 9/10 weight. Must give it a go to see how much I can carry.....

    Lifetime supply of duck feathers.

    Reflo Power line query

    I quite like it, but find it a bit limp for long leaders with droppers. I have not noticed more break offs, but do get more tangles. I also think it is a bit shiny in the sun.

    What breaking strain?

    G5 8+ lbs is of a low enough diameter to use successfully, but. Have had some knot slippage with it. I prefer g4 of 6.9 lbs.

    Single Blob Method ?

    Rob, so you are more of a change your line, than your flies man....imam guessing this is reservoirs you are on about where there is more depth rather than small Stillwater's?

    Single Blob Method ?

    Rob.....what blog would you typically use. As part of a team I use a small chartreuse jelly blob with a pink tag with success, mixing it up with a bright orange, and also washed out biscuit.....any other colours that stand out for you???

    I would not worry about flattening marabou, it will look no different when it has been dunked in the water....

    Given up on co-polymer...

    I made the mistake of tying fluorocarbon tippet onto a co polymer leader. My usual knot, well wetted and snugged up. Pulled out on a small fish . Silly boy.

    Daphnia fly

    ...err....egg fly...! - - - Updated - - - How about getting some clear spanflex and tying knots in it, and colouring the knots in a pantone pen. Tie some bunches on to a hook???? Daphnia imitator or just a general purpose wiggly what not? :juggle:
