This week Keith will be joined by fly angler, and former World Champion, Iain Barr. They’ll be assessing the sport you can find now that the cooler conditions have arrived, and looking at some of the most effective patterns to use to go in search of winter fish.
If you’ve got a question for Iain or Keith please send it in as soon as possible via an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and they’ll do their best to help out.
All-rounder Chris Sandford delves into his vast knowledge of angling history and demonstrates the effectiveness of his ‘Hair of the Dog’ patterns at a Hampshire stillwater. Dog fur was used by fly tiers over 300 years ago and Chris’s versions represent both traditional and modern tyings. We even get to meet the dog!
There’s saltwater fly action with Austen Goldsmith, one of the frontrunners of the sport in the UK. He showed Andy Ford what it’s all about on a recent trip to the Cornish coast where they went fly fishing for bass – an exciting way of targeting these hard-fighting fish.
Keith will also have advice for all anglers as he looks at the weekend’s prospects up and down the country. In Fishery Focus he’ll be putting the spotlight on some typical venues to suit all disciplines, with information on the most effective methods and baits to use on those waters.
Match fishing is the focus on Tight Lines next week when Keith’s guest will be 2010 Fish’O’Mania champion Neil McKinnon. They’ll be taking the opportunity to look back at July’s big event as well as discussing tips and tactics to help you improve your results on the bank.
Please keep the questions, and your photos for the ‘Young Angler of the Month’ competition, coming in via e-mail to email@example.com .
And a reminder that if you do miss the broadcasts on Sky Sports, the whole programme will be available as a podcast after the show on Friday evening via our website – www.skysports.com/tightlines.
