    Shakespeare switch Rods ???

    Cheers lads I was talking to the gillie who looks after the river I intend to fish next season for salmon he’s opinion is that a 11ft 8/9 weight switch rod perfect for me starting salmon angling I’ve been trout fishing for over 10 years (Rivers) so fancy going after there big brothers Atlantic salmon I think anything above 13 or 14 ft would be to much punch so it looks like a switch rod 👍👍

    Which and why. .17hmr

    Yes JABB your original post no mention of 22lr thought you were looking just for a rim fire Just giving you my opinion that think 22 lr better for bunnies but apart from that I once had t bolt 17 hmr accurate rifle but the trigger not great on browning good luck

    Steel Brands

    Cheers lads for the opinions Marsh man your right i tend to blame my cartridges when i miss lol Ive always seem to go back to gamebore 6X5X55 I didnt like eley either when me and the mate patterned them on steel plate between 30/40 yards through 1/2 choke never tried RC. Stonepark thanks as well your right gamebore velocity in the middle IM Gona try the RCs for a change see what results i get I once tried HULL STEEL Shooting wigeon over decoys in a fresh water lough through my aya magnum and had a great morning but the local gun shop never brought anymore in stock I suppose its what where all happy with cheers again👍🦆

    Jack's game

    Love watching Jacks Game I was a kid when they were on years back recently watched the wildfowling video Brings you back to a time when shooting was made simple dogs side by side shotguns and a pocket full of cartridges Just brilliant the rest of the videos are great as well 👍

    Sbs help before I give up and sell it

    Gun fit more important than any choke open or tight chokes My aya no3 fits me perfect with pistol grip beaver tail fore end and double triggers but it took me some time when I first bought it to get used to the sight picture but I stuck at it and I’m glad I did it’s the first shotgun outa cabinet semi auto gathers dust now lol One thing I do find sitting in duck/pigeon hide its easier to load than a o/u or semi everyone give u advice mine would be Gunfit all the way mate it’s half the battle Chokes are important but if you can’t mount the gun right and shoot in the general direction of the game then doesn’t matter if you had Solid gold chokes screwed in
