Paul, you didn’t look too convinced in some of those. If you try holding the fly and fly line with your thumb, forefinger and middle finger, with the leader looped in your hand it works pretty well. Joe Humphrey’s was the man for this stuff

Thanks Vince. I'll check it out in the morning. I do something similar when polaroiding trout on lakes.

What I have never done is worked on developing accuracy with the extended B&A. One to practise this month then to see how accurate it can be.

Cheers, Paul

I always wanted to watch this but the postage costs are a killer for a DVD
