That cork does look new Liam. Hazard a guess here.....an Access 104 TF by any chance ? Great rods, love my Access 904 TF. Iain, that vid is so bloody good it has almost got me considering going and getting a float tube ! Good fishing guys, well done.

Lovely work as usual Iain.  :z16
I really have to get up to that loch and not be made to do other stuff at weekends... :cry

Any sign of Isle de Kelp part two?

Hi Euan,

Sorry to let you down but Isle de Kelp part II is never to be made  :z6 a Macedonian television company has bought the rights so unless you plan to holiday in Skopje then you'll never see it.
I didn't want to sell but 15 is 15, right?

Was just testing out the Assynt tubing outfit for next year.

Leroy, Lindz it is a newish Access 10' 4wt. Too long for a shortie like me  :z7

Lindz, IMHO a tube on a loch with lots of features is the only way to travel and systematically fish the place effectively.

That was great Iain. Almost feels like I'm back there but with bigger trout :z4 I will get my photos up all 2 of them asap. Thanks for not mentioning that I forgot my waders and tubing boots until we were half way there....wouldn't want anyone to know that!

Iain, what a fantastic video, the quality is great.

Your productions just get better and better, very polished production.

Very impressed with the whole video except the very brief section when a pie eating monster came into shot.

You make them look so polished, I am sure there must be many hours of editing to get them to this level.

It shown everyone why tubing for trout is such a great way to fish.

Well done.

Kev.

Nice one Mr Chipper!

Kev,

They are a pain to edit, render and upload and most posted videos are typically finished with a 'that'll do'.

trolling through hours of footage is no fun and it's easy to miss some good stuff.

It's a fantastic way to record your fishing career though and if it encourages others then it's all worthwhile.

I'd like to spend a day with someone next season just taking footage which would make for a much more professional production.

it did indeed motivate me to book two separate tubing outings this weekend. Float on!

There have times while out fishing I've got worried by the glances, stares and pure hateful jealousy and thought to myself that he's gonna push me in here then steal these gloves off my cold dead hands  :cry
Not to mention my fishing bag, I'm scared to wear that around him anymore....

Jim,
I really didn't want to break his spirit as I sold him the man bag telling him it was from Simms (it actually came from River Island)  :z4 :z4

Iain  :z4


Trig you are a disgrace!

Jim you could have just asked, I would have let you carry it for a while!

Iain unlike yourself I'm not a slave to the brand name. Basically if I'm using it then its cool.

It is Mike but its a bugger to get them to stay still long enough for a pic. The next one I tried was quiet a bit bigger and wriggle wiggle and away before I could get a snap.
Could always tap them over the head a little I guess? Subdue them a tad :z4
Maybe not.

Just push him in anyway and forget about the gloves and bag  :z4  Heard he was wearing calf length boots over his waders recently as well  :wink

Ditch the net it just gets in the way and bring the fish over the front of the tube.  Net reserved for bigger troots.
Keep yer camera roond yer neck (mine's is in a wee case thing, ay i know it didnae help last week but it's all sorted now amazingly.)  Open it as you play the fish and switch the camera on, so when you land the troot yer ready to snap away.
