    Matchcatch

    Just ordered a 6'6" 2wt and got 15% off with code Andrea15. Reviews on these rods are excellent for the price and I wanted a 'shortie' for a heavily overgrown small stream near me.

    The first fish you ever caught

    Summer of 1957. Holiday with family in our caravan on Rushey Hill site near Newhaven. I was 7 and used to go fishing with an elderly gentleman I knew as Mr Puffin (his tiny caravan, with a bag of stinking squid underneath as a rule, was called 'Puffin'. He gave me a rod he had made from a tank...

    Fishing in Lincolnshire Wolds

    I fished Toft Newton many times in the 1980s and now am considering moving to the area. There appear to be some chalk streams in the area - does anyone know if there is any river trout fishing in the area?

    Loads of ads for Sunray lines on FB at the moment. Are they as good as they look in the ads?

    Boat partner for Carsington?

If anyone is fishing Carsington soon and wouldn't mind me tagging along and sharing the cost of the boat, I'd welcome...

    Fishing in Limousin

    That's the tourist trap talk. Loads of carp fishing in the lakes, but the so called Category 1 waters are absolutely devoid of brown trout, stocked with ragged tailed rainbows which are cleaned out by bait fishers within a couple of days.

    Fishing in Limousin

    Problem is that on the day after stocking, banks are shoulder to shoulder with bait fishers all trying to get the cost of their carte de peche back in trout for the freezer. Nothing left after 3 or 4 days.

    Fishing in Limousin

    I live near St Yrieix la Perche and have been unsuccessfully searching for some decent river fly fishing for some time. Any advice would be much appreciated. All the rivers near me seem to be devoid of fish, probably because the locals kill everything they catch except carp.

    Good quality cassette reel and spare spools

    Has anyone had any experience with this line? Currently using a French Leader set up but wondered if swapping to one of these would be preferable.

    Bought mine as 'new old stock' last season (2018). I doubt you'll find anywhere now.

    I have two of these lines and absolutely love them. Yes, they are noisy, but in every other respect they are the best floating lines I have ever used.
