Barrio Fly Lines / Re: Smallstream from the boat?
« Last post by Peter McCallum on August 24, 2019, 10:05:34 AM »
Used a smallstream #5 when I was tubing in Orkney in July. The short head is great for loading the rod quickly at short range.

Fishery Reports / Loch Insch report
« Last post by Loch Insch - David on August 24, 2019, 09:43:39 AM »
Another banging week at Loch Insch, although things slowed up slightly on the big fish front. Only had 2 @18lb, a 15, 13.7, 13, five 8ís and four 6ís this week, although Iíve stocked another 8 big doubles yesterday amongst a stocking from Westmill of 250 rainbows and blues.

 The water is still weed and algae free, and fish are feeding hard on buzzer, sedge, damsels, fry and corixae...... floating lines, midge tip or intermediate if itís really bright, with Diawl bach, cormorant, pheasant tail, buzzers, damsels, green wells spider, Kate mclaren, tequila Fab, CDC shuttlecock taking the vast majority of fish.

 Should be an exciting week ahead.

Tackle Talk / Re: Time for new waders .....
« Last post by Mike Barrio on August 23, 2019, 18:33:17 PM »
My Orvis Silver sonics developed a leak at the ankle after less than 2 years.  Just got them back from having the seams sealed but not tried them yet.

Will be keeping an eye out for any end of season reductions as I want a second pair for backup and Patagoniaís are high on the wish list.

My Silver Sonics have not been looked after, but they're still going strong after a few years and probably have a trip or two left in them yet :z16

I only got the new waders because I'm not sure how the Sonics have managed to last so long .... and a couple of recent encounters with barbed wire may possibly have not done them much good, although I haven't noticed any leaks  :z4

if you can afford Patagonia waders then I think you can afford to buy Kildrummy estate ?

Saw in this months Trout and Salmon that the estate at Glenkindie is up for sale including 3 miles of the Don, a snip at £2.85m.

For rich people  :z7 Kildrummy is up for sale, including the inn and a number of properties.  It will relieve you of £9.5m.
