Topics I've Started


08 June 2018 - 07:29 AM

Hi folks, I know in the older days of the forum the fly database was quite well used and bookmarks of patterns was common.

I would love to hear some stories of flies people copied and had great success with and also flies you've tweaked to suit a hatch or scenario.


A few I've had joy with came via Soft Hackle and Old Hat. The leviathan and triple green caddis are two that spring to mind

Opinion on rod

29 May 2018 - 02:51 PM

Has anyone got any opinion on the Orvis HLS 2 Trico rods.

Winding check

The rubber seal above the rod handle on an old orvis rod has perished and come off.
1) does it matter functionally? My feeling is it doesn't.
2) how easy is a thread wrap in this area? I have some size E gudebrud thread which should be ok to use.

Any news on the creature?

Carrying two rods

16 May 2018 - 05:00 PM

Hi folks, anyone fishing on foot where they take two rods, a light rod for small stuff and a heavier rod for bigger fish. How are you storing the second rod? Just lying on the ground? Rigged on your waistcoat/pack? 

I'm thinking of carrying a #3 and a #7 but don't really want to keep putting rod down every few casts.
