Things that we didn't put anywhere else!

Welcome to our new section of information pages. The Bluedome guides are intended to provide you with starting points for a wide range of interests and activities. The 'guides' will also provide you with some key articles about a whole range of outdoors related information.

The new gear guides are produced in association with, our great equipment review site.

If you would like to add a section to the BlueDome Guides please e-mail me at Bluedome Guides

Best wishes, David Lynch - Editor.


Fly Fishing on Corsica

Not quite the usual BlueDome subject but one which we hope you find interesting.

Corsica is a beautiful destination and fishing the superb rivers was a joy....even though we didn't catch any fish!
