    Woodwork/tool question

    The old axe I had, had a metal wedge in it.

    Shakespeare switch Rods ???

    Are you thinking 12ft? If so I would not bother, unless you are mainly targeting grilse. Also look at the Greys range, I was in the Hardy shop at Alnwick on Saturday and they have a Greys GR 50 13ft rated 8/9 line for £280 but reduced by 40% so about £160 odd. I tried this rod last week on the river, coupled with a Rio Outbound 8/9 line and it was a joy to use. If your budget can stretch to it, I would recommend it. 13ft is a good allrounder

    with that budget £500 you can get a new CZ, and no need to worry about the barrel been shot out.

    any you tubers?

    I watch a lot of fly tying vids on it, and it is annoying when the guy has the wrong colour of shirt on. If you are going to be doing some close up work make sure your back ground is suitable.
