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?
I enjoy taking pictures as much as fishing, Nah that’s a lie but I really do enjoy recording my days on still and running water with photographs and drivel for the blog.
What is the French Leader technique? Well that’s a whole other article and a can of worms to be perfectly honest!

I spotted these on one of the marketing emails that regularly hit my inbox. I like the weight that this shape of tungsten gives a fly but am not keen working with them as the profile never quite works for me.
Last year I reviewed the Rio Euro Nymph fly line and my conclusion was although I liked the line I did not think it would replace my current system of a French leader.
have been called many thing over the years, but a dedicated follower of fashion is not one of those things! The folks at Yorkshire Game Angling sent me one of the Greys Strata Hoodies to try out.
I've been using jig hooks for the best part of 10 years. You can use any bead on a jig hook.

This was an inaugural event held at the Business Design Centre in Islington, London. I had stopped going to shows and fairs a number of years ago mostly due to ticket prices and geographical location.
