As someone once said
“if you always do what you have always done you will always get what you have always gotten” in terms of fly fishing “bugger all” you might say, simply because some cannot adapt to change – we hear it day in day out, if you are one of those anglers who think there are no fish in the/a river, what you actually mean is YOU were not able to catch one” – Grant Alley

Fishing provides that connection with the whole living world. It gives you the opportunity of being totally immersed, turning back into yourself in a good way. A form of meditation, some form of communion with levels of yourself that are deeper than the ordinary self.Ted Hughes

“Tips from the Tackle”
We have many anglers come into the shop a bit disgruntled they have not caught many/any and proclaiming there are few fish in the river, we wonder if they have ever thought it might be the way they fish or lack of knowledge.
From our observations
learn to false cast, to many people pull line off the water with every cast scaring the fish.
During the cast stop the rod completely on the back cast and allow the line to straighten
Learn to read the water and where the fish lie
Move through a pool and cover the water you will catch more fish, standing in one place is a waste of your and other anglers time – learn river etiquette
Try fishing less familiar water, faster water, tail water, shallow water.
If you would like to spend a couple of hours on the water brushing up on techniques sometime give us a call we would be happy to assist – Grant and Steve
