Winter Flick Throughs

I am ill – consequently I am flicking through books I have on my shelf for a little glimmer of fly fishing hope. I received “The World of Fly Fishing” a few years ago when I graduated from University as a present. The photography is lovely and is certainly making me think about getting my trout gear out for a clean up for next season (not that it just has trout fishing in it – it just makes me think of fishing that I am unable to do). At least, when I am better that is….

So if you are looking for a book for Christmas I certainly do recommend it!


  1. Sorry to hear you are ill… fly tying is a good remedy! Here’s a conundrum… if we are all Amazon affiliates, why don’t they just drop all the prices???

  2. “Early Doors” WTF was it that started that expression .Some football pundit no doubt . đŸ™‚

  3. Get well soon ! Alex and i will be starting the winter grayling season in style on Saturday, call us if you wish to go

  4. Nice one Alan – there is only a few days of severe weather warnings to contend with – you want me to be your safety line if you get stuck in a snowdrift?


  5. Indeed, always the same Alistair , great conditions for a fortnight and then snow , thaw, more snow!! I’ll fish somewhere on Saturday as the alternative is unthinkable, either xmas decorating or Ikea!!

  6. I’ll pass if you don’t mind, did all that 10 years ago and won’t be doing it again in a hurry !! No, i WILL be fishing somewhere, hopefully the river will drop away, if not we have a mind for some pioneering, which i’ll tell you about if it happens. All i can say at the moment is that, as far as i know, it is a virtually untouched branch of our sport here is Scotland.

  7. Alistair,
    If you are putting a sign on your baby’s door ( well the room that is ) just don’t use

    “nursary ” LOL

  8. Research is still in its infancy, so, to avoid embarrasment and ridicule, i will wait until i have more information before posting here, although i may discuss it with you in person!!! Looks like the severe weather warning was a damp squib ( as usual), so the river will be in fine fettle tomorrow for the grayling
