How to Balance A Fly Rod

April 03, 2019 2 min read 1 Comment

Perhaps that’s too literal an interpretation, but the whole fly rod and reel balance exercise is actually pretty pointless, after-all, when is the fly rod balanced? - standing in the carpark balanced on a finger with no line out?

"Native fish are often indicator species whose health tells us much about the waters they live in. In this film we will look at the survival challenges these fish have or have had and the successes we're having in managing them, examining working solutions. Factors adversely affecting native fish around the world are often the same, such as over fishing, invasive species, habitat loss, etc"

" Find a feeding fish. Our first consideration is whether the trout are feeding - if at all. If they aren’t feeding, or at least watching for food, you may as well throw stones at them.

When there is little food in the water column, trout often go into a semi-dormant state. A hatch of mayflies or drift of nymphs will wake them up in short order. "

Epic DH13 Two Handed Spey Rod Review

August 31, 2017 4 min read

Spey rod reviewI’m going to go straight into it, best and funnest rod I’ve ever cast! Usually spey rods these days are geared up for the ever increasing popularity of shooting heads, not a bad thing by any means, but throw in some marketing regarding their versatility with all lines, then there’s usually a wolf at the door. The Epic was truly progressive / responsive. This rod threw effortless tight loops, and accurately placed casts, even at 130 ft. thanks to the quick tip recovery! Even lazy casts, dead straight!
