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. 

Vision Koma Reel

Loop Pike Booster Rod 9 foot for an 8/9

Esox Lucius Pike Fly Rod 9 foot for an 9/10

They will be up in that order over the next month.

I will also be reviewing the new DVD from Charles Rangeley-Wilson and learning whether the man can do no wrong !

    Im looking forward to the reviews very much, a new pike fly set-up is on the cards and those two rods are strong contenders, looking forward to reading more than just a spec-sheet on them.

    So the pressure is on then – keep prodding me about it – I am an eternal theorist reflector – I spend far too long just thinking about things rather than doing them!

    I am the worlds worst, thats why the blog has 3 posts this summer when ive been fishing about 687689745 times.

    I know, I know – although to be fair its only been a week 🙂

    I should have some nice photos of the Loop and a bit better understanding of its “fighting fishability factor” (I made that up) by Sunday – the review will then take around a week to write.

    I just got the Essox Lucious last Sunday and have not cast it yet (I have swished it around my living room and garden though 🙂

    Im now having second thoughts about getting a new rod, i wanted to upgrade my “cheapo” rod, but now that ive actually learned to fish with it i love it! It’s tough as old boots and puts out a nice line with ease. Never had anything upwards of 8 or 9 pounds on it though……
