Or.... not  :z4 Practice might be more useful :!

Hmmmmm...I can see a "cammo" line on the horizon. Dye the whole line a sandy brown, coil it and then dip dye one half in olive green...hey presto..a cammo line!
Ok, I admit it, I quite like this salmon fishing lark....

The day I manage a session without casting into the bushes will be a very happy day indeed!
