I’ve got along very nicely with the same old shitty pair of industrial nail clippers I hacked of an old girlfriend years ago. In all honesty, a Dremmel would have been far better suited to her needs though. Saying that, I do like these from Orvis. Purely because they have a hook eye needle for clearing away those annoying head cement blockages I seem to be having more and more in my older years. The down side to these nippers from closer inspection is that the hook eye needle is positioned inside the actual nippers, all be it at the front but still an arse ache trying to locate it with my shit eyesight. The thing is right, are they really worth the $70 (R916, 42 + R48, 00 postage) without the lanyard price tag? I mean for that much wonga, I’d hope…..…..nay, I’d demand it to come with a free fucking lap dance!!!

Abel retail these for a staggering $79. That’s an eye watering amount of (R1034,18 + postage)….Eish!!

So what would you like for Xmas this year love…..well darling I’m rather par...

Fly fishing has always been a hit and miss affair along the Natal coastline for me, none more so visible since moving back here in 2012. 150 km either way from Durban (Commonly known now as DIRTBIN!!) isn't the friendliest for fly fisherman to be honest. Yes we have a plethora of rocky outcrops strewn along the coastline but are only accessible during low tides which gives us a very short window in the day to go chuck some fluff around. Coupled with that, the constant battering by heavy waves turns many of our beaches too steep to cast from. Practically 80% of our river estuaries are silted up and only open and run into the ocean during heavy rains inland so there is very little chance of tidal fish moving in and out of them regularly. I know I sound like a middle aged miserable old git

The one great thing about fly fishing is that after a while nothing exists of the world but thoughts about fly fishing
