My complete outfit.
GRXi 9' 5w, GRXi reel.
Several boxes of flies, drys, wets, lures, nymphs the lot.
Nets, line & tippet (although you'll probably want to change these) all the usual odds and sods.
Orvis digital camou sling pack which is hardly used and anything else I can find to chuck in...
Not been used in a while but only a couple of seasons old.
No leaks in the waders and in good condition. Size is medium/short with stocking foot. £65
Boots are same age in a size 9. I haven't even cleaned them. £35
They really good kit and cost a fair wedge when new. Much better than previous...
I'm hanging up my waders so will be clearing out my kit.
Really fab reel, smooth and power drag, ideal for big reservoirs & Sea Trout.
Some very minor useage marks but otherwise tip top condition and supplied with spare spool and pouch. SKB does some great stuff but you probably know that...
I fished the Bure just this Saturday. We did a club guest exchange and someone else arranged it so I'll see if I can find out the details. Fishing was pretty good. It's only a very small stream but in a pretty area around Aylsham. I believe it's stocked but there were quiet a few wild fish as well.
I have a secret little highland loch I like to fish on my holidays on the inner Hebrides . . . the fish probably average 1.5-3 lb and are the best looking fish I've ever seen. It can be a nightmare to fish but worth the challenge.
There's probably quite a lot of us who have come over from the coarse side of things, personally I'm from a match fishing background but no longer do it at all.
If it's any encouragement Hywell Morgan told me that often ex-coarse anglers make the best fly anglers.
Our small stretch of chalk stream suffers from poachers. The fishery really can't sustain this kind of thing. Recently a member moved on 4 guys and I myself have caught a couple of Irish decent who got a bit lippy but left in the end. It's all very clearly marked as private so there's no excuse...
