Salty but not fly related

Any of you guys had experience of the kastking spinning reels? In UK they sell a model that is 'sealed' and salt water designed. They appear to be a very good price compared to Daiwa BG or Penn slammer III (which is a pain to track down over here)

Hooks rusting

I started a thread over in lodge. Please take the time to read and chip in with your experiences.


Hooks for salt water

16 May 2017 - 10:09 AM

Interesting thread that came up on a UK sea fishing forum.
Making me think again about hooks I use for salt water flies.

Anyone had similar experience with bronzed hooks?

American wages

13 May 2017 - 02:07 PM

Apologise if this sounds a daft question to my american cousins but I've seen a few jobs in Maine and I'm thinking they pay very well.
Is 110000 a year a very very good wage if dental and health insurance is included with job?
We'd kinda put moving state side off forever but not so sure now.

Anyone suggest a pattern.

Lots and lots of larch ladybirds in the water today. http://www.naturespo.../larch-ladybird
These bugs are common about here with the forestry providing good habitats.

I caught a fish on a small hackled dry with a small silver tag but felt I needed something a little more match the hatch to do better.
