Re: Aide memoire's?

Nice one, good take on the old rotten apple on a stick analogy 🙂 Remember the cartidges that undeveloped film used to come in? Great for putting on the tip of a flyrod to get people to accelerated smoothly, bring a bag though, as its alot of exercise picking them up further and further away 🙈😂 Cheer...

I’m happy to use the term “technique” rather than “style” for our purposes. I think that will be simpler and we should probably avoid the term “style” altogether. :)

Re: Fly line hinging/cracking

Yeah, I know superglue tend to seep into the thread, most superglues turn brittle in water though, and that I would like to avoid on a connection 😉

Re: Fly line hinging/cracking

I’m the same. If I need a loop - which I often do here by the way - then I strip to the core and whip a loop using strong tying thread and then superglue it. If I’m trout fishing I use needle knots.

Well, he used to look more like Buddha, in his better years that is 🙈 now that he's growing hair all over, its hippie dude 🤣
