There are already many great reviews available online extolling the technology loaded into the new Scott Centric fly rod, and so I see little need to go into great detail on another. My advice is you should simply go and try one for yourself and take your wallet. You'll soon want one.
It has been seven years since Scott put the feel into fast ac...Read Full Post »

Recently I received a message from Rob asking if he can learn to spey cast and successfully swing flies with his everyday trout gear.
Here’s a secret: that trout rod you have in your garage will allow you to spey cast. Spey refers to a style of casting, and this...Read Full Post »

So personally I'm not a fan of rods riding on bonnets and roofs, attached by a magnet or suction cupped contraption, holding on against the ever changing elements.

I'm often asked by both anglers and guides the difference between zippered, and non-zippered waders and whether they’re worth it. The Simms G3 Guide Goretex wader is a champion: Guide tested, tough and the stalwart of the wader world. However sometimes you deserve a little more love so why not treat yourself?

Winter's about to hit and even the hardiest of anglers put away their wet wading kit in favour of a good pair of waders, and never is it so important to consider your clothing system to remain warm and dry on the water. Your waders are only as breathable as what you wear beneath them,...Read Full Post »
