  1. Hello Sportsman ihave a surf and must say it is a fantastic motor,but watch what you buy,the 2.4 version has a bad cylinder head(i had to replace mine)and fuel consumption is poor,but so are most 4x4s.Parts are not a problem and neither is insurance(£230 fully comp,Prestige motor insurance).Expect to pay £3500_£4000 for a K plate 2.4 surf.happy motoring.Regards Kevin.

  2. Afraid you will just have to wait until it arrives before you find out.I buy a lot from cabelas and a few other American outlets sometimes i get hit with duty and sometimes i dont.Lately i have asked for items to be posted as a gift(request when ordering)and touch wood no extras have been added.Good luck.Regards Kevin

  3. Has anyone used fireline when trolling,either flatlining or with downriggers,fancy giving it a try but not sure if the no stretch would be a good thing or not.Regards Kevin.

  4. Exactly what i said Phil,a typical Scottish summers day,as long as the snow holds off and the ice melts on the loch i should still be going.One extra pair of socks and a wooly vest and i'm sorted.Cheers for now and tight lines to me. :D:D:D:D

  5. Fly looks pretty good Phil,char looks pretty good too,i bet it was tasty.By the way Phil the way you and your bruv's luck is going just now you could probably stick that fly on your downrigger and winkle out another 12 lb whopper.At the mo fishing is on for Sat so hope the weather holds,cheers for now Kev.

  6. Man walks in to the doctors with a strawberry growing out of his nose.He says to the doctor,anything you can give me for this doc.The doctor takes a close look and says yes!!!!!!!!!!!!! i'll give you some cream.

  7. Lovely fish Phil,lucky buggers.Fished Lochy last week 3 days biggest was 2.5 lbs.Caught an eel trolling as well.Just back from holiday so have not done any posting for a few weeks.Heard you have bit the bullet dont know if congratulations or comiserations are the order of the day but good luck anyway.Well done you silly bugger :D:D:D .Didnt know that your wife fished but apparently she put an article in trout and salmon last week saying she had landed a whopper in the windermere area apparently it was an old trout :D:D:D All the best Phil speak to you soon.

  8. Cheers Fergie will purchase a couple before i go up.Going up for four days so i will have a chance to experiment.Will post to let you know how i get on.

  10. Hello Fbn as Jim says keep us informed how you get on.Its been a long time since i fished it (about ten years)i had one of those perfect fishing days on the river just as it flows in to Inchlaggan Loch,it was late September and the char were coming in to the lower river,hundreds of them tailing and finning on the surface we had several char over 4lb in weight and a lot in the 3lb bracket about fifty fish in all.All were returned bar three for the pot.An angling writer whose name i cant bear to say was also fishing for the char but not with much luck had asked if he could take pictures of the fish which was not a problem.Imagine my horror when he published the picture in his book remarking that these char were all tragically killed as they reached thier spawning season.Imagine my dismay as i flicked through the rest of the glossy pics, Ferox well in to double figures,huge pike,all fantastic fish but also all dead, but none with the tag of tragically killed as mine were.Kind of took the shine off a never to be repeated days fishing.Anyway less of this talk and have a good holiday mind and post the pics .Regards Kevin

  11. Hello Phil

     

    What do you use to weld the pin to the mount ,is it solder.I have to make a few up over the next week for trip to Lochy /Arkaig 15th to 18th July.I seen Gerrys pics of Ferox from Arkaig,seems like thats the hot loch at the moment,wonderfull fish and in excellent condition.Managed to buy a couple of cannon easy trolls off ebay so i am looking forward to trying them out.Only thing is the cost of the downrigger weights and releases(this is when i wished i lived in the U.S).Best wishes Kevin.

  12. Cheers for that Corydoras.The info i got was from the local tackle shop,he said Loch doine was now private and that you could'nt even take a boat from Loch voil on to Doine. Good news me thinks might try this weekend. :D:D:D

  13. Fergie gives a shout next time you are going up and you can show me where it is.I am going up to Lochy/Arkaig second week of the trades and need a few baits,tell me did you get any brownies when you were fishing for the char.Cheers

  14. Think the area at the top of loch voil that you are talking about fergie is loch doine Watch what you are doing as i was told that someone had bought the place and the area is apparently not fisherman friendly supposedly no fishing on it at all now.Take care .
