New fins arrived!

After what happened to Alex’s fins last week I decided to upgrade mine to a pair of diving fins – thankfully Hollis took pity on me and sent me a pair of these bad boys out to review.



I am looking forward to trying these bad boys out. To go with them I have bought some dive boots and some fin keepers to make sure that I don’t lose them in the middle of some loch.

In other news I visited Tickers Tackle in Helensburgh today to buy some aquasure to mend some holes in the breathables. Thankfully he did have some in stock and after chewing the fat about some local fishing I headed up the road to inspect the fly box. It is a nice wee shop with what looked like the essentials, as I left he called out that he could buy in anything that I needed! I kinda liked that!

I have heard that there are plenty of olives coming off the Kelvin just now with trout rising regularly. Looking forward to my first trout of the season!

    Hi there I’m just getting into float tubing and wondered how you find the Hollis f2 fins? What size did you get? Also what size shoe are you I’m an 11 do you need the next size up in dive boots to allow for the neoprene wader sock? I’ve read the foot pocket on the f2s are huge any info would be much appreciated as so many fins out there just not sure what to get cheers lukeluk
