Re: Midge patterns

Trouble is... I find when the fish are ultra fussy that takes with CDC can be easier.... I carry poly-yarn and a range of other materials but always work back to CDC... no doubt others don’t find a difference, but confidence is key :D

Re: Midge patterns

Using CDC I like a shuttlecock pattern mentioned above But generally find a bog standard traditional griffiths pattern is always a consistent catcher.... tied 24 through down to 14... cut all the hackle off flush underneath if you want it sat in the film rather than on top of it... killer pattern, a...

Re: Leader connections

Like Lars.. I like the connection of a needle knot, but haven’t used one for ages.. I change leaders far to regularly.... 9-16’ for dry and a straight through plus 30’ leader for Nymphing, so loop connection for me. People say it can catch in the top guide, but that’s still not happened to me, I rec...

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...
