I donít remember ever seeing a Salmon stripped this clean. Normally the otters only eat half. Perhaps like us they know salmon are few and far between so they now go back for 2nds :z8

Good to be home after getting stuck on the wrong side of the floods around Oban for a couple of days :)

This was the Spey valley from one of the many back road diversions today!

No sign of the river, it was like a loch, serious amounts of flood water.

I was asked a couple of unexpected questions this week by a work colleague which I thought were worth sharing.
On the face of it, both questions seem quite innocuous too, that was until I tried to answer them.

The first was 'how many different species have you caught on the fly :?' with the follow up question ' and which was your favourite :?'

The answer to both was - I genuinely don't know :z18 I shared this with some friends and in part the reason why I found them so hard to answer is that every fish is memorable, every day a treasure, every trip a journey into the unknown. I'll only know the answers when I hang my rods up for good, which I hope is many, many seasons from now.

That's my copy of Fly Culture Magazine popped through the letter box this morning, I'm looking forward to sitting down with it.

Not sure that 'magazine' really does it justice, possibly better described as a collection of fly fishing short stories in a quality A4 book format?

However you describe Fly Culture, editor Pete Tyjas deserves a pat on the back ...... I think that's five years now and I've really enjoyed reading it.

I found a copy of the website from back in 2003 today, I remember the old green and cream layout well.

This was my 3rd or 4th version of the site, I think the previous one had a speckled background and things like a visitor counter, 'top site' badge and a guest book - remember those? *smiley-grin*

Hi folks

In an attempt to try and keep the forum going, letís recreate a thread from the past. Itíll be interesting to see how tastes have changed (or not) over the intervening 15 yearsÖ

So the question is:-

ďWhat is your favourite rod of all time?Ē

To make life a little easier, letís have a #5 or heavier, and a #4 or lighter option.

My choices would be:

#5 - Winston Boron B2X (made by Sandy)

#4 - Epic Packlight 476 Glass (made by Sandy)

River Don - early season :)

0 Comments








Were very proud to announce that Carp Champions - The Home of Fly-Fishing for Wild Carp have been invited to host a stand at Moy Country Fair 2023 this coming Friday and Saturday.

We will be promoting fly fishing in all its variety; carp, pike, saltwater (in fact, any fish that swims!), kayak, pack raft, destination and DIY adventures.

Drop by and have a chat, maybe have a cast with the latest S-glass rods (perfect for huge predators or delicate dry-fly presentations)? Or just cuddle up with a carp & chill out with some awesome fishing movies😎

We will also be showcasing the work of Charles Jardines Fishing for Schools charity and the The Wild Carp Trust....

Back at the fly tying table for a while this morning.

A few more F-Flies in the box, far from perfect, but they don't have to be perfect to have fun making them :)

Enjoyed a cracking afternoon/evening on the Don, weather conditions just felt right - so I headed down for a few hours.

Netted lots of nice Brownies, and found a couple of bonnie Sea Trout in amongst them too :)
