    Reel hunt

    Any feedback on your Emcasts Richard? I am in the same boat as you. Finding the DL4000's a bit small on my barbel rods.

    Braid hook link

    I need to get more braid hook link and just wondered if any one had any recommendations? I'm looking for something uncoated. I've been using Gardner which has been OK but just wondering if there are better options out there.

    Just finished watching this one. Terry does make a great film. Looking forward to the next one, out Monday I think. We could do with some barbel films of this quality.

    Upper Trent Info

    It could well just be me but I've been really struggling to catch anything on the upper for the last couple of years. Even the chub have dried up for me recently.

    Goretex jacket options

    I'm extremely pleased with my Paramo. 5 years heavy use dog walking every day and no drop in performance. It doesn't russle like other waterproofs and a bit warmer too.
