Interesting how much fish sleep!

I remember seeing a good sized Grayling drifting downstream, gently turning with the current, on the R Lathkill (Derbyshire, UK). My only explanation was it was napping.
I almost stood on a big Brown Trout in very shallow pocket water in NZ around midday: not sure which of us was most surprised

Italian style of casting...

Vince, I was very impressed by Malik’s demo at EWF a few years ago: Paul was there. I have never taken it on, but have had a couple of years where fishing was not available to me. I have met a couple of the UK/Massimo school guys: I really should have a closer look but if it requires a new rod, it w...

Forget about hand and rod. Think line

Analogies thought up by people who already “get it”, then try to condense thousands of hours of enlightenment into a phrase, are just words. My Dad taught me to cut wood using a saw, saying “let the saw do the work”. Those who can effortlessly saw wood will know what he was trying to convey. Now we ...

MCI in USA

Ghost net?

Lars I bought one of these http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Fly-Fishing-Landing-Trout-Net-Rubber-Replacement-/201592865322?hash=item2eefdf022a to replace the ripped net on my McLean. The advantage is these "rubber" nets do not tear when snagged in vegetation. Disadvantage is the net is very shallow. Not to...
