Re: Shucks

Paul, didn't you meet with someone doing research on mayflies around your whereabouts? I remember you posted a couple of pics of one with two very long tails before I came last time, when we were having the "tying the best dragonfly comp". I tied a couple of not so very good ones before I came and n...

Re: [Fuck] Lock down days!

Yeah, I understand that being enclosed must be quite a big difference and must make navigating by stars very hard. Just keep hidden and safe during this strange time mate. Since you have your little house in Hungary. The Orban government there have now passed a law that they can rule by making decre...

Also, I didn’t know that the Hot Torpedo rods can come in the matte option. Pretty cool.
The Hot Torpedoes are made matte only.

Re: Gloss vs. Matte finish on rods.

I actually saw a matte 10' 4 weight Guideline rod. I believe it was aimed at chzech nymphing but I may be wrong. Interesting to see since I have only heard of HT rods having matte finish. But I don't know a lot of rods though.

Re: [Fuck] Lock down days!

Ok. I saw quite a lot of Orang Asli passing there last time but maybe they don't go that much now? Have you got a good light on the Battleship for navigating in the dark?

Re: [Fuck] Lock down days!

Yeah, the Battleship ant wars is something to avoid. Better to anchor a bit outside and take the Ronan ashore then. So where do you you hang out and can you fish at all? I was thinking away past Creepy Island, where we saw all those Gouramis that didn't eat or the other side of lake where you had to...

Re: [Fuck] Lock down days!

How deep is the Battleship in the water? Can you get close to islands or do have to use another boat for that?

Re: Lock down days!

Lars - It most certainly is Jarra wood from Australia. And I hand ripped and cut it to fit it to the parcel. I think I spent almost ten minutes just ripping it, breaking a good sweat. I might as well show the Silky saw handle I made of the same wood. 20200207_212430.jpg I hope you get some nice hand...

Re: Indicator Fly / Indicator with a hook

I have made klinkhammers with a large 5 or 7 mm foam as post and a sheep girl ring far down the bend. The are just enough buoyant to have two droppers hanging from it and staying visible.
