    The 1980's

    Musically I’d have to go for Big Country or U2. In terms of the videos I’m sure that there a comedy show at the time did a sketch called ‘nice video, shame about the song’ implying that the video was better than the music

    The dawn chorus.

    Not the same in our neck f the woods. We loads of small birds making a din in the morning. Robins, greenfinches, goldfinches,wagtails,blackbirds,greenpecker to name a few. I always open the window to let the sound into the room
  3. Thrutton Long crag and Chatton fly fisheries are pretty small venues. I’ve not fished them yet but have some decent reports from the lads/lasses that have fished them
  4. As previous posters have intimidated Airflow have a bad reputation for memory coils on floating fly lines, and rightly so in my opinion. However their lines that sink and are pulled are much better. I’ve had a Snowbee for the last ten seasons and it’s in great nick. Does your local tackle shop do ‘mill end ‘ lines as these are cheap as chips and can function as well as top end gear if you drop on the right one.
  5. Blanked on the river tweed on a two hour hour session yesterday, first ever time on a river but really enjoyed the experience. Later went to Coldingham lock and had a great short session. Banked six and lost two in three hours. It’s great being on holiday
  6. I agree with comments made. If you’re drifting with or without a drouge cast shorter as you will still cover fish due to the fact that the boat is continually moving. Make sure that your retrieve matches the speed of the boat as this will help to reduce the line ‘ bellying’. all the best Tim
  7. Do you use a drogue to slow your drift?
  8. Just driven past a Vape shop in Dunbar called ‘Kick Ash’
  9. No problems. I hope you get the bug. It’s a great sport
  10. Hi Steve. I’m not sure if they do lessons but the staff at the lodge are always very helpful. If you contact them I’m sure that they will point you in the right direction. We have a club based at thrybergh reservoir in Rotherham where someone will gladly show you the ‘ropes’ free of charge. The club meet every Thursday evening between 7 and 9 Tim
  11. Not exactly sure yet but will either be Thrybergh or Ladybower reservoirs. Definitely on the Tweed mid March though
  12. Excellent, I like the way that the light is coming through the bottom of the wing feathers
  13. The accommodation that we are renting for the week has the fishing rights for a mile stretch of the tweed report that I can fish from the 15th March
  14. Sheers BP, I’ll take a look. All the best Tim
  15. Thank you for the advice BP. I’ll definitely use this information. The advice re the sinking and intermediate lines is interesting as my natural instinct would have been to use a floater with ultra heavy nymphs. The sausage roll sounds great too. many thanks Tim
