Sweet... I'm just looking at getting a new full sinking line at the moment, I need something with a faster sink rate like a Di7.
Trying to decide between the 40+ or the Sixth sense??? Was about to txt Chris but he might see this instead :D
I meant to ask Johnno... do I need to read the swap rules? when I saw you copied and posted them, I wondered if I'd done something wrong :lol:

Nup. Just copied them over for the guys who may have not done one before so they know the protocols. :lol:

I went for the 6th sense, Mike. Got mine in Di5 which is great & have herd good things about the Di7 too. Can't fault it so far.. :D

I have gone with the 40+ in the end, Chris and Ronan use them and say it's way to go... I'll see when I finally get out to fish it :)
I think they look much the same but the 40+ should shoot better and they can only help with my casting...

Well iv just walked in the door from over a week on the NI traveling around with work, and see that Johnno's already got his flys in? This is the first time iv seen my tying desk since I agreed to join the swap. :oops:

Might have to have you over one night for a bit of brain storming on my tie Chris? Beers and tying sounds like a laugh hey, particularly with this wet weather.


Bucking trends in fly fishing since 1970!

Sit down at tying desk with coffee.

Step one: put hook in vise.

step two: get some thread and wrap on hook.

Step three: grab some shit and start tying.....
