    Lockdown indulgence...

    Faced with the prospect of no salmon fishing until April 2021, what did I do? Treated myself to a secondhand Hardy Demon 9000 Salmon Fly Reel. Lovely bit of engineering and it will match the one I...

    Re: Simple tips.

    I measure out nylon by my arm span, 3ft to centre of chest, 4ft to opposite shoulder, 6ft full “wingspan”

    The old adage of your armspan is the same as your height is actually very accurate.

    Re: Simple tips.

    I often use an in-line olivette instead of a bulk (principally when trotting but occasionally on the waggler) but obviously that’s only good when you don’t want a slow drop with shirt-button shot...

    Re: Simple tips.

    I just use a home-made waggler adapter which is a very small snap-link swivel trapped between 2 float stops. No thicker line needed, no damage from locking shot.

    Re: Simple tips.

    If it’s that soft that it falls off when being shipped out using a zip tie, it’s almost certain to come off when falling through the water. Depends on your paste mix and consistency.

    Re: Simple tips.

    If you’ve got a droopy cupping kit putting balls of ground bait in, when you’re shipping your baited rig out just hold your pole around 6” further up the butt and you’ll be spot on.

    Re: Which landing net handle?

    Best one-piece specimen landing net handle I ever had was a Daiwa Black Widow, very slim and immensely stiff. Only sold it when I found the Drennan 3 piece would do the same and it wasn’t 6ft long....

    Re: Bow on the line

    Braid helps with using a lighter weight too, but mainly from the boat. I’ve never fished braid off the beach and don’t intend to start any time soon.
