Lpxe 11ft, #8/9, 3-Piece

  Orvis Mach IV with Airflo Ridge running line with oversized loop.

Guideline DDC Shooting heads

Heres my two shooting heads which I use on the Lpxe. A 9/10 DH cut back to 8.1m at 22 grams and a 8/9 DH cut back to 9.35m at 21 grams. Roman moser custom loops.


With the permission of a local farmer I pulled this lump of a rock from the river bank. Plan is to place it somewhere strategic for a fish to lie in high water.

Fly Fishing and Fly Tying June 2012

Really good article by Stevie Munn taking in tactics for those slow pools that I normally walk past. Light lines and tiny flies, it is Iceland though with its gin clear water but definitely food for thought. Some lovely small patterns too.

Stinger partridge hooks. Go down to 14's, slightly up eyed. Look the biz for tubes. Carpy looking!

Need something with a bit more backbone for the high water situations, and also on my local river, the Fane as it has a powerful flow when its any way high.

Henrik, makes every salmon he holds look tiny. Big switch fan.


Good article on switch rods, No echo reviewed though which is a shame. Very impartial review.


First Chasing silver, epic magazine with fantastic articles. No contenders.
