1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    Lovely brownies for a river mate..! They're probably quite a few years old to get to that size.

    We love our trout fishing and go away camping to Wales and Scotland every year, tried Ireland a few years back. You're lucky to be in a good part of the world for it, here in the southeast there's very little trout rivers, most are chalk streams that command silly money to fish so we have to travel for river fishing. Lake and reservoir fishing is ok up to around July when the water gets too warm and they sulk on the bottom until September.

    My favourite river flies that seem to do well anywhere are elk hair emergers, black gnats, diawl bach nymphs and spiders in one form or another. Many a tug on all those..!!

    All the best mate.....:up:

    The smaller they are the lightening fast the bite..! I had a great time one June evening sitting astride a rock flicking an Adams dry into a small pool stuffed full of 6" brownies on the River Tummel a few years back. Lost count how many I caught and released but I remember still being able to see to pack up at nearly midnight..!

    We also like to fish the Tay for trout around the Aberfeldy out to Pitlochry stretch. For still water we camp at a quiet site near Pandy in Wales and fish the Chirk fishery near Wrexham, they also have a stocked section of river at the rear of the fishery and have a great Mayfly hatch each year. Then we go north to Abergele and Graiglwyd Springs fisheries. We've been to loads of others but our favourite for quality of fish and all year fishing is Markle near the Scotland border town of Dunbar. I had 20 trout on an evening catch and release ticket there one May. They were rising to a suspended diawl bach nymph on a dropper with a big fluffy sedge on the point. It all came together on that evening but did my arm and shoulder know about it the next day..!! We normally get up to 6 on a 4 hour ticket there and they stock from 3lb upwards. About 4-5lbers go best, stripping line like a submarine. The Mother in Law lived in Dunbar until 2010 but we still make sure we get up there every year around June.

    We also get to the Highlands and hire a boat on lochs Bhac and Kinardochy as often as we can near Pitlochry. Kinardochy is a brownie only water and Bhac a mixed water of brownies and rainbows. They're really secluded lochs with plenty of fly life and offer great fishing....:up:

    Probably would be mate, we go to one called Ddol-Hir Caravan Park on Pandy Road Glyn Ceiriog Llangollen. A secluded place where the field runs alongside a river. Very quiet apart from the owls hooting all night...:)
