    Can't figure out how to edit this so someone who does remove the word Maree from the start 🤣

    Reflections on the Loch - an experts take

    The prospect of a week convalescing necessitated the purchasing of a lengthy book. Based on my previous book purchases Amazon recommended 'Reflections on the Loch' by Stan Headley. I've already got the Loch fishers Bible which I found quite good and would recommend. The down side to Refections...

    OK, sounds like Mrtrout needs a new one.

    Flank marks on sea trout?

    In previous years on Hope ever fish I caught had these marks on the flank in exactly the same position. This year on the one visit I managed none of them had any marks. I did notice how clean the fish were and was going to comment. I've never seen these marks on fish from Ulladale, voshmid or...

    Guess the weight

    The answer is I didn't weight it but the guy at Altnahara hotel ate it so he may have. It wasn't reviving so got a dunt on the head. The reel is 3 3/4" . I reckon 3 1/2lb, first to guess this looks like Pati so if he/she chooses a Maxcatch Line and PM's me their address I'll send one through...

    MAXCATCH Vs Cortland

    It's not me that's got a hump about cost. It's Mrtrout and his buddy's. If the Cortland had been poor I would have criticized it. I don't believe I did give the Maxcatch a bad review, I told it as I found it and ended by saying it's a £10 line and worth that but for me I'm happy to pay the...

    MAXCATCH Vs Cortland

    I've had 5 out of my Peach one. So I'm surprised Mrtrout says his cracked after one season. I'd be interested to know what Cortland's response was assuming he returned the line. Seems to be a thrifty character so I would have thought he did. If he didn't and still has it he can send it to me...

    MAXCATCH Vs Cortland

    The seller on Amazon is Uni-fishing, are you telling me they are selling fake goods ?

    See my post above, the line was recommended to me.

    MAXCATCH Vs Cortland

    Not irrelevant in the slightest. The working conditions of those that make the lines and the environmental standards the manufacture adheres to are all relevant especially to the young folk of today.

    MAXCATCH Vs Cortland

    How would I know the line was 'obviously defective' I bought it online ? If you read the original post and my replies to the Maxcatch massive you'll see I didn't buy the lines to do a comparison, I bought the Cortland because I was disappointed with the Maxcatch. I went to Graham's in Inverness...

    MAXCATCH Vs Cortland

    I bought one off Amazon, if you go through Maxcatch website delivery is too slow for me unless you pay another £10 which makes it more expensive than Amazon.

    MAXCATCH Vs Cortland

    I don't regard £55 as silky money although I'm aware some might. Cortland manufacturers in America so you would need to factor in the cost of manufacture and taxes as opposed to Maxcatch.

    MAXCATCH Vs Cortland

    Did you claim on Cortland's warranty ? I would be interested to get in touch with Cortland and find out why you and Mrtrouts lines crack within a season. My own peach line is 5 years old with no cracking. Let me know what they said.

    Read the first line again. You sound emotional.
