    As Tigger implies,...
  3. Re: Best methods now I have access to several stretches of river?

    This certainly isn't the best time of year to start, if you are inexperienced and want results, things will improve in the new season (don't forget that there is a close season on rivers).

    Re: Replacing reel bands with a seat

    Allow a few mm extra on the reel seat bore size, so long as it slips over the blank into position you are ok. I usually build up any slack on the blank with a few turns of masking tape so the seat is...

    Re: Fish Movement in Winter

    I am guessing you are not UK, not the ideal time of year to start targeting carp on the fly - basically surface fishing. Sure you could catch them but a lot of effort for small rewards. But if you...

    A method feeder, a baitrunner reel, a boilie.
