Arctic Silver Rod Range

ArcticSilver, well known in Scandinavia where they originate from. These rods have changed the way rods are designed completely. Rather than a fixed cork handle which restricts the action of the rod, stopping the carbon fibre moving, ArcticSilver rods have a hollow composite handle which allows the entire blank to be used right down to its base. This is called Free Flex...... find out more here

Fly Fishing With Crunchers

The trout cruncher fly, or cruncher, is a great imitator of nymphs for rainbow and brown trout. They do look similar to spiders with a hot spot behind the hackles, but its these that help throw them outwards.

We had a great day fishing at Mulberry Whin on Monday testing the 8 foot 4 weight Vision Onki Rod with the new 2Tone Triangle Taper Wulff Fly line and using the Umpqua waist pack. What a super day catching natural brownies from this lovels chalk stream. Mulberry Whin is the most northerly chalk stream in the UK and in August cost £60 for a days fishing, very different to southern chalk streams.

Using a 4 weight Vision Onki rod paired with the Triangle Taper fly line were a delight. The colour and action of the Visikon Onki were superb and with just 10 feet of fly line our I was able to roll cast and naturally cast 30 feet of fly line 30 feet in very tight circumstances surrounded by trees. The Triangle Taper fly line was superb floating high in the water and it made casting a delight.

Bite identification is critical to fly fishermen, often we have watched and realised that people have not even noticed bites because of either poor eyesight of poor bite indicators being used. So here is a top tip for bite identification and it will cost you very little!

So you may have spent £20 or you may have spend £75 or more on a fly line, please donít worry this technique will improve your catch ratios and hook-ups. All you need is a dark coloured permanent marker pen (or light coloured pen if the fly line is dark coloured).
