Hi Simmo

A couple of seasons ago that was on my cast nearly all the time - I guess it was replaced last year by cormorants at Bewl. A great way to fish it is use it as a single fly on a 20ft leader and floating line. Count down to 20 and bring it back ultra slow. Great movement in the tail and taken as a wide variety of food items.

Cheers

Mike

Hi Mike

The Cormorants did go well last year, but you know what comp fishing is like it's like the fashion industry. When it's in it's in. Wink

You're right there Simmo.

What ever happened to baby dolls, jersey herds, missionarys and appetizers?
