After the success you’ve been enjoying i reckon its somebody elses turn to get some pike haha
thats why its called fishing mate ,thats the way it goes.
got some epoxy today and put some eyes on a few of my flys ,one thing for sure it was harder than i thought and now know i need to get a little turner for applying the epoxy next time as it would be so much easier.
I have two red welts on my finger as well from stripping line!
I burnt my finger from stripping line too fast the other day aswell, awkward to say the least!
use a water proof plasters theyv worked in the past
Fished for trout on Kelvin.At one point cast 5 times caught 4 fish.You guys keep pike fishing and leave the 1 pounders + to us.Seriously though some cracking trout and salmon in the Kelvin just now.
Hey Peter – What did you get them on? Were the trout taking flies from the surface?
I was using ginked up spider patterns size 12 & 14`s fished just in and out of the surface and no more.Ferocious takes, I played one of 1lb+ for agood 10 minutes (I only had a 2lb point). Wading was a bit scary though-high water & fast current.
