First fish on bamboo!!

So I have a bamboo rod that I have been keeping quiet about. At some point over the next couple of weeks I will go into the details but at the moment all I am saying is that I have a 7 foot 4 weight bamboo rod from a company in the states called Tea [...]

Sunstroke

So it seems I have a mild touch of sunstroke or heatstroke…….something like that anyway! I got all dizzy going down to the local supermarket and generally feel quite bad.

I shall hit the Kelvin tommorow!

I am now a statistic!

Rainbows in the Kelvin??

Sorting out tackle!

So the last time I went to a little stream I used my little 3 wt that I had not used before. One of the first things that I noticed was that the sections kept coming apart. It is a little custom made rod so all I had to do was put a little wax [...]
