    Some of you might have read my post today on the screeching Proberos reel I ordered on Aliexpress. Hopefully I'll get a refund, and then I'll order a Maxcatch Avid in 7/8. I already have an Avid reel in size 3/4 and its drag stopped a 7lb 4oz rainbow which took the whole fly line and about 15 metres of backing. If your going to buy an inexpensive reel, buy Maxcatch.

    Also just received an Aventik WF-7_S ordered via eBay
    was impressed by Speytimes' when we were out for the day
    the packaging was forwarded on from a London address but the shipping docs were from China..!....there must be some markups for them ALL to make a profit

    should these lines be 100% OK I'll never order in the UK again
    (and have no truck with those who say support UK - it's a global economy now.!)

    the BEST line I ever bought was a Scientific Anglers WF-7-F many years ago - no longer in production. Still going strong after many years

    As far as I can tell the line is a real gold but the tip section feels pretty hard and wirey.
    I've got a barrel for catching rain water off my green house yesterday i dropped the tip section into it to see how it was in cold conditions and wasn't impressed.
    I let you know once I've fished with it I'm waiting for a day that isn't freezing cold or to windy.

    Hi Skaj,
    I have the 5wt sink tip, blue running line with a black head and I think it is a fantastic line. It cast well and is nice and supple.

    Cheers G, that’s the one I was looking at. The tip is 15ft and Di6, not too long and fast sinking ?

    Hi Skaj, yeah that’s the 1 . 15ft for me is perfect and you don’t have to dig it out at the end of the retrieve just recast with the start of the sink tip in the top eye. Can’t believe how good these lines are. I have bought 1 of the golds but have yet to spool it .
    Cheers

    My fast sink tip has a coil in the sink section when first using it in this cold weather, much the same with my amnesia leader section that's needle knotted to the line, however a bit of a stretch soon removes them.
    There are two basic fly designs, those designed to catch fish and those designed to catch fishermen, the latter being the best seller
