Re: Lost skills - rod repair

It’s basically a spigot ferrule glued top and bottom, whipped and epoxied. About two inches either end. If the break is in the middle of a section it repairs fine. Gives it a slightly dead spot of course. Sometimes I’ll put a section inside the spigot as well. One of the rods we’ve been gifted is a ...

Lost skills - rod repair

I’m guessing that most of you know how to repair broken rods with carbon inserts. I used to carry spare parts around when travelling for this purpose. That was before the lifetime guarantee. But it’s still a good bit of knowledge to have, especially if you are in a remote location. I shall be repair...

Re: Line management video/description

Line management really is a good topic. I don’t normally teach on rivers but Sungai Tiang really drilled it home last week. Stuff that we just take for granted is very complicated when you first start out. Good line management needs to become second nature. It’s funny however, I don’t ever remember ...

Re: Square snaps

Actually if there is less line in the anchor as well then you could probably use less force :p So it was a dumb question.

Re: Tying with today's synthetics

Ah right, dubbing brushes... never heard of them! My idea of a dubbing brush is a lollipop stick with some Velcro epoxied to the end that I use to make flies even messier. From Gary’s description I can guess what it is however. A bit like EP Christmas tinsel?

Re: Tying with today's synthetics

My flies are a bit of a mess, Lou, so maybe I’m not the best qualified to answer :) However I will anyway! I’ve been tying flies for about 40 years. I’ve shunned moulds, not so keen on rubber legs. What I do like about these synthetic fibres is their ability to shed water, their translucency and mov...
