    Woodmill 2020

    Woodmill is a productive pool historically. The issue is that it hasn’t been properly maintained by the company that has the lease to manage it and it has become beset with issues. The anglers have highlighted these issues with them for some time but with limited results. Ordinarily 3 people...

    From eBay. 2 came up around the same time so I pointed the Mrs in the direction of the listings and she did the rest.

    What did Santa bring?

    Yes, left hand wind too Which are quite rare. Never understood the default RHW - someone once explained it to me that it’s because “gentlemen should wind with the right hand“ so some eccentric and rather daft reasoning.

    What did Santa bring?

    He was very kind to me - a used Hardy Perfect reel (see recent thread on reels for sewin and sound effects), a new pair of Ocean waders, and Chris Newton’s biography of Falkus. Happy days.

    First flies

    I’d definitely recommend starting with YouTube. Davie McPhail’s videos are superb and really break down how to tie patterns. Also Steffan Jones has some really good tying videos of some of his sea trout patterns. The best advice I had when I started tying is to tie the same pattern over and over...
