Since A Treatise of Fysshynge with an Angle in 1496 by Dame Juliana Berners we have been writing about the hunting fish through fly fishing techniques. Trout fly fishing particularly grew dramatically with the Victorians and through the 1800's when Trout were transferred as ova to British Colonies with the first successful transfer of Brown Trout Ova aboard the Norfolk with Itchen and Wye trout introduced to Victoria, Australia
Trout fly fishing has ranged from stunning waters like the English Chalk Streams and the Catskills to lochs and rivers where natural Brown Trout occur to stocked lakes like Arnfield, Grafham or Roxholme. Whatever your preference there is a massive offering for trout fly fishing world-wide.

Wires have have 3 primary uses in fly tying as:
- bodies in flies like the Copper John
- to add weight to a fly to help it sink or
- as ribbing on both dry flies and lures, nymphs and streamers.
Wires come in different guages or sizes 0.1mm, 0.2mm and 0.3mm the most common in fly tying and in a range of colours.

We had an opportunity to test the new Wychwood RS Rod in July 2016. Newly released and now readily available we thought we would do a full test of this new range of Wychwood Rods. The flagship RS series are classy, high-end fly rods which offer exceptional performance combined with a super lightweight design and stunning good looks.

The pike is known for a deserved reputation for being the most terrible predator in our lakes, lochs and rivers. Though, at the same time as they may be certainly a exceedingly developed as well as able hunter, pike are tremendously delicate fish which have to be handled with care plus respect.
