Everyone likes a bit of variety and while chatting to Cameron Craigs at the Grayling Classic he told me that they were just about to introduce Spartic Trout into the lakes.
The Broadlands Grayling Classic is in its 5th year a well established. I had worried that this was going to be cancelled like so many other competitions this year.
This is part one of a two part video about fishing the Broadlands Grayling Classic. In the first part I show some of our two very different days practice and discuss tackle, tactics and hopefully show you a little bit of the river.
Tackling one of the large midlands reservoirs can be a little intimidating so there is nothing better than getting an expert on board.
Duo fishing might well be frowned upon by many as not fishing the dry fly nor the nymph correctly. Technically they would be correct but, I have fished this method for years and have caught an awful lot of fish doing so.
If you love fishing there is very little that will keep you indoors when opportunity comes knocking! The weather was horrendous and for most of the day I had the fishery to myself.
I was supposed to fish with Ronnie Christie but he cried off and Steve kindly agreed to step in. In this video I take to Pitsford Water in Northamptonshire with an old team mate and good pal Steve Cullen.
I really am a lucky man, I have some great pals that can get me to places that I can only dream of. Sorry for the vagueness of this video but I do not wish to get my pal into trouble hence the cloak and dagger.
I was fortunate to be asked along to fish Grafham and Eyebrook by my pal Jock Kettles. He was down with a crew from Scotland for a few days fishing and by chance one of the guys dropped out.
In this Vlog I share a day afloat with professional Fly Fishing Guide Tim Joyce.
In this episode I am on Vale End Fishery on the Albury Estate near Guilford. Just around the corner from Weston Lakes the fishery comprises of two lakes Belmont and Mill.
This is a brief video covering a few days in County Durham on the river Tees fishing the first River Masters Competition run by Scott Nellins of Flyfishnorth
This Vlog episode sees me at a very local to me Weston Lake on the Albury Estate near Guilford.
This video reviews the following Airflo lines. These normally retail at £69.99 but can be picked up on offer at £49.99 at the time of publishing this video.
hope the title is not too misleading, I don't often use the term Euro Nymphing to me its all just Nymphing. Czech, French, Spanish and a host of other names it all comes down to tight line Nymphing. You may call it what you please.
Although I had visited Rutland when it was single man boats I was really looking forward to going back and sharing a boat with Ian Pinder.
This Vlog episode sees me at a very local to me Weston Lake on the Albury Estate near Guilford. It is only a short 40 minute drive for me, a big bonus!
In this episode of the Vlog I concentrate my efforts on fishing the Nymph using the popular Euro Nymphing technique in the video I explain My tackle and how I have set up.
Long before I had any interest in running water this is where I spent many an hour often in conditions not as nice as this. I had not visited Rutland Water for more than 15 months and could hardly sleep the night before in anticipation.
The Manningford stretch of the Hampshire Avon runs right past the very popular Manningford Trout Fishery. https://www.manningfordtroutfishery.c... The Salisbury & District Club ticket allows you to fish a fair old stretch of this beat.
One of my subscribers suggested that it would be cool to film a days fishing on the river, so here it is! It's worts and all, I learned a few things along the way.
I do count myself fortunate in these unprecedented times that I am lucky enough to get out and still do what I love. I am also really lucky to have numerous good friends that invite me to their venues to have a go.
There is no doubt the last seven week have been tough for the majority of folks. I count myself lucky that my family still have two wages coming in and we have managed not to kill each other during the close confinement.
Okey dokey, part two! You have messed around with the phone camera but you are still not getting the detail that you desire. You have to up your game, get serious and dig deep, into your pockets that is.
One of the questions I am most asked is what camera am I using to take photographs of my flies?
