    Fly fishing is pretty much the only form of fishing which I have never done.

    I trot for them with a centre pin.

    You go in some bits of a big river in waders in winter without a lifejacket and I don't think it matters much mate.

    I think @snorky should be made to clarify what 'deep nymphing' is. I'm assuming it's a method of trapping mentally unhinged whales?

    Reasons beyond our control: Over fishing at sea, diminishing bait fish etc
    Reasons we could help, (but don't for the main part): Sea lice from salmon farms, predation by cormorants goosanders etc, poaching, and the refusal by the powers that be to allow us to operate our SNR project to enhance the dismal levels of juvenile fish that are in the Wye currently.
