Sexy Polaroids

So I needed a new pair of Polaroid’s – in fact I needed two pairs – a pair with light lenses for low light conditions and a pair with dark lenses for…..you guessed it, bright light conditions.

Usually I would just head off to my local boots and try and find a pair that will [...]

Lessons learned with cold hands…

When I arrived at the “other” river the conditions seemed just right – as I was getting my permit I ran into Neil “Trout Machine” Sinclair of Double Decker fame (double deer hair wings allow the fly to be used in the heavy water where big fish like to sit) -”if he is here” I [...]

BROMANoDELL’s Esox Lucius 9ft #9/10 Fly Rod (3-piece) Review

OK, its winter and you know what that means for Pike fly fishing – yup, casting enormous flies towards particularly belligerent pike which are sulking near the bottom of their frigid home – you will be using intermediate or sinking lines and will need a 10 weight to manage the harsh conditions that [...]

Loop Pike Booster Review

Ok, so it had to happen – I became all tackle tarty and just had to get my hands on a dedicated Pike fly rod – well I got two in fact however this review is dedicated to the fairly new on the market Loop Pike Booster.

Loop says:

If big toothy critters is the [...]

Charles Rangeley-Wilson: Bonefish – A Fishing Odyssey – Review

As I was watching the new offering from Charles Rangeley-Wilson I was trying to work out how the guy consistently gets it right when so many other fishing programs get it wrong.

I mean you have only to look at the recent fishing programmes on terrestrial television to see how it’s not [...]

Upcoming Reviews

Hum ho – just back from a cold day after Pike – more on that later.

Thought I would let you know about some up coming reviews regarding the rods and reel I use for fly fishing for pike.

Orvis Superfine “Trout Bum” 804-4 Fly Rod Review

So I have now used my Orvis Troutbum 8 foot 4 weight for the best part of a season – I had been looking for a nice four weight for lazy days on the Kelvin as well as something for low water conditions on the Clyde. It must be said that I am no expert [...]

Loop Evotec CLWC

My fishing buddy bought one of these reels a few weeks ago – needless to say he wishes he had not bothered. I love the tag on the Loop Page “Be tough on your Evotec CLWC. It will love it”

Purchased one of these recently. I’ve had six sea trout with it, but no [...]

Fish Bum 1: Mongolia River Wolf – Review

I have a confession to make – I received this DVD ages ago but due to one thing and another I never watched it until now. That’s the problem when you get stuff to review you can’t just hang around you have got to do it. When I buy a fishing DVD or movie I [...]

Review – Fishpond Aussie Clippers

These little clippers were great – electric blue, small (ish) they fitted on my lanyard perfectly and cut through mono very easily – I tried them with 20lb mono and they cut through it with ease. I would expect so to for £7.

I wanted a new pair of nippers as my old ones ……ach [...]
