Trouble is the choice of music would depend on my mood...
A bit of funk..


A bit of house....

Re: [Fuck] Lock down days!

Fantastic news on your sister and undoubtedly her beautiful baby :D ... I’d slightly disagree with your interpretation... I reckon if it had originated in the west, we’d have taken it seriously sooner. Although it kills predominantly older/people with a prior medical condition, there have still been...

Re: Accuracy

I think you expect too much of the casting associations Paul... I think you’ll disagree with much of what follows :D :D Surely instructors are teaching people to get to a ‘standard’ and instructors are at ‘different levels’.... there’s no obvious need for them to be chasing a 120’ cast... it’s compl...

Re: Leader designs

The leader length, what they are being used to cast & how far is the average cast would be a useful addition to people’s formulas... I’d normally be fishing within the range of 15-30’... a cast over 40’ would be very rare. If I am fishing with a couple of weighted nymphs the actual leader design mat...

Re: Leader designs

So do you aim for your butt to be the same density as the fly line? Perhaps that’s the difference...I have been tying leaders up with a thinner diameter butt than the 66%, the butt would be the first step down... useful as on many of the river I fish- I’m using 10-12’ leaders, so the butt stepping d...

Re: Leader designs

Hi Morsie...
Out of interest which maxima do you use?
I generally use chameleon for butts (the first 3 sections of nylon), which I would class as stiff... I’ve never really used the other maxima nylons so no idea whether they are the same or limper than chameleon.

Re: Unintended Catches

A Frenchman when I was about 11 yrs old... I’d bought a 4m whip to catch small bait sized fish in a harbour near where we were staying in Brittany.. I will always remember it, I swung the float, caught his trousers and he started hopping about saying ‘big fish’... other than that just a few ducks.. ...

Re: Leader designs

Cheers Paul / Bruce... that’s interesting, something else to try... a butt made at 70% diameter with the limpest material, I haven’t tried a butt configured that way... it would necessitate more nylon purchases as the limpest brands I have only are from 3X to 7x. My current butt section is (from mem...

Re: Leader designs

I doubt I’ll ever reach the point where I’ll permanently settle on one leader type/design... it’s one of those aspects I always get drawn back into playing with... 3 or 4 seasons ago I used nearly all self-tied, 2 seasons ago I pretty much used Rio power flex all season, always with 3-6’ tippet adde...
