Re: Chadwix wool

I have wld theory to offer. Has any of you ever thought about the electricity generated by mixing copper and steel? The killer bug and the original pheasant tail are both tied with copper wire wound around the steel of the hook. No thread insulating in between. Fish certainly would react to that, wo...

Re: What is a good angler, what is a good fly caster?

Hi Thomas, You definitely need that attitude if you are to keep getting better and never plateau. What makes them really good in your eyes? Cheers, Paul Wether someone I able to double haul or not does not matter to me. That is purely a technicality. Nice, sure, but not of importance to be good ang...

Re: What is a good angler, what is a good fly caster?

Most folks I met that were really good at music or angling thought of themselves as constant beginners. These people were humble and never seized to learn new things. There's always something new.

Oversaturation - FP by Martyn White on Sunday, 18 October 2020

Nice write. The weirdest thing I have ever seen is a man made creek in Sweden. .... No thanks. I agree with you, however, I even can not be bothered at all fishing stock ponds and stocked fish. I'd rather not fish than. Weird? Maybe, but I find it even more weird to do that. To me counts how natural...

Re: Inflatable Life Jackets

Was the chap who fell in knocked unconscious as well? Luckily no, he slipped while getting into the boat. He could though easily hav knocked his head in the process. He was alone when it happened, rather well hidden even though very close to the hut. Anyway, I also chose these vests as you hardly r...

Re: Inflatable Life Jackets

I have the automatic ones at Skålestrømmen. Very unobtrusive. In Norway it is mandatory to wear a life jacket in a boat under 8m. https://www.skalestrommen.no/ff/inflatable-life-vests/ In the last two seasons we did not have any unintended inflations. Actually only one angler fell in and so triggere...

Re: Wading boots by shoe companies

I actually wouldn’t mind paying that for 3-4 seasons. I’ve never had wading boots or shoes for that matter last anything like that long. Two seasons would be fantastic. What I will do with these boots is an initial ‘first impressions’ review. A review once I’ve really learned them. And finally a re...

Re: Wading boots by shoe companies

Just a quick comment on SIMMS. I find it ridiculous to charge that kind of money for shoes which are designed to fall apart after 3 or 4 years. I had a pair of their top line (guide or whatever they are called) and they literally fell apart after the mentioned period. I didn't even hike in them. I u...
