Fly Fishing Glossary J's

Fly-Fishing can often be confusing to beginners to the sport because fly-fishermen talk and write in a strange language using words not always in standard use. To help take some of the confusion out of the terms bandied about by fly fishermen we have compiled this glossary.

Wanted a spare reel for an intermediate line. Essential Fly "reely" friendly and helpful with genuine advice for a novice like me, even helped choose the line and backing, their help didn't stop there, they even loaded the reel for me. Treated my enquiry and the sale with a feeling that they were interested in helping me make the right choices. Very pleased with the product too.

Great service
