Lee Moran, the owner of Pennine Trout Lake in Lancashire, has extended the fishing time on his water by installing a couple of floodlights! At first, he switched the lights on when it got dark, but that frightened the fish. Now he switches them on up to an hour before dark to let the fish get used to it. The result is that the fish rise throughout the night, and catches have been tremendous. It's tremendously popular with the customers too - "cheaper and healthier than going to the pub" said one. more follows> Time Off Guide 530 Bridge 536 Bridge Chess Bookworld Rock/Film

Various types are commercially available at various prices: some good; some bad. My own choice is Humbrol, clear dope more commonly used in model plane making. Much cheaper than most varnishes, this brand dries very quickly, and soaks well into the silk. more > Time Off Guide 530 Bridge 536 Bargain Travel British Rail * 125 Bridge Chess Bookworld Rock/Film

Several letters received recently asked for advice on fly tying materials - so at the risk of repeating myself, note the following. Fly tying materials are easily obtainable from many tackle shops and mail order houses. There are however scores of everyday household items which can be utilised by the fly tyer. Coloured wools for bodies and tags of wet flies and lures; fuse wire or copper wire for bodies/ribs of flies; cooking foil for bodies; old polythene bags cut into strips for bodies are all useful. more > Time Off Guide 530 Bridge 536 Bridge Chess Bookworld Rock/Film
