Re: [Fuck] Lock down days!

... like you I’m happy to isolate if it’s gonna keep people alive, but have to say I’m slightly jealous you can still hit the river... I can work from home pretty easily and it saves me a fair chunk in petrol costs... to be honest if I could still go fishing I would hardly notice the impact... I’m q...

Re: Movies of Grant Casting.

Hi Peter, Can't comment on Grant i'm afraid but i did like the last point. The other point from the book is the way the Brits so easily develop such terrible snobbery about what others do (like shooting line into a cast for example - terrible - shocking - outrageous). I have experienced this snobbe...

Re: Movies of Grant Casting.

A mate has sent me some pages from Jock Scott's Fine and Far Off. What a great read it is. Grant must have been an extraordinary caster. Does anyone know of any footage of him casting a 2 hander? Some of the distances he threw are really unbelievable (although of course I don't doubt them). Sunken ...

Re: Leader designs

Thanks Gordy.. Unfortunately some of the technical aspects of that links are a bit above my pay scale... :D :D :D My comments were really just what works for me on a typical SW England river.... There’s also a practicality aspect- when tying your own leaders some leader designs require loads of step...

Re: Leader designs

Hey Nick.. I’d disagree again.... :whistle: Personally I don’t think you want the butt to be the same size as the end of the fly line or perhaps more accurately the diameter of the butt section isn’t what matters, it’s the stiffness... I would always rather start the step down at that point with the...

Re: Which taper - What line?

I get that Lasse... in some ways it would be easier if the line was stipulated... it would certainly have been cheaper :D If you asked me why 2 lines... I’d have to be honest- I like my SA trout wf or DT for all overhead casting... it’s what I have used for ages practicing (I’ve only recently starte...

Re: Which taper - What line?

Lee and Lasse that’s really interesting and very much worth listening to🙂 I have the Rio sh in 6w for my 6w rod and didn’t really enjoy the feel of it overhead.... but certainly it makes the distance easier.... it flies to the backing from a 5’ overhang... currently not necessarily with enough ‘styl...

Re: Indicator Fly / Indicator with a hook

If you’re not set on it being an emerger
I’d go for something with deer hair... either a sedge or I started using a ‘found link’ deer hair body and wing/sighter...

They link is pretty unsinkable... both the body and wing are very buoyant
