    Very timely this, I bought Karrimor boots and they are heading for the bin as they have squeaky soles and are not waterproof :rolleyes:

    River Wye Pollution

    There is action being taken by The Angling Trust, plus others to make sure that planning laws are followed. We can’t rely on government and their agencies to do the right thing anymore so legal action is being taken.

    Three for me this year, but I will only fish two and it's two going forward from now on (unless I move home when the BAA membership would be an option). I will only use two of the club waters as the third was just a backup plan in case I did not get into one of my preferred clubs.

    Wild Justice takes on Ofwat

    Thanks Joe. There needs to be challenges like this against Ofwat as it brings the issue of pollution to the public’s attention.

    New Fishery Listed

    I hope they do well. We are so lucky to have access to the Wye in quiet places like this and in other places aswell. In the past it would have been for salmon fishing only.

    Closed face reel vs pin vs fixed spool( open face )

    I have an original ABU 506 modified so it backwinds. IMO it’s horrible. They are really (!) slow to wind in compared to a modern fixed spool reel. I only keep it and my 70s Skakespere match rod for sentimental reasons. I prefer a fixed spool for all types of fishing now.

    New reels - Okuma Aventa or Daiwa Emcast BR

    On my Emcast the air bail broke, it snapped. I am usually very careful so maybe I did something wrong. I got it repaired but never felt 100% with it. Now my Son has it for sea fishing.

    Bait screws?

    I share Bob's view. I am reluctant to put more plastic into rivers.

    Hi Jake, you apply and may need to wait until a place becomes available. Contact Adam at Angling Dreams. His phone number is also on the notice boards along the river. Go along the disused railway track upstream from Monmouth to the padlocked gate and there is a notice with contact details here.
