If there’s one question we often get asked here at John Norris, it’s about the best dog-friendly places to stay at in the Lake District. Being able to take your four-legged friend along on trips is so important to many of you, and understandably so, as dogs are after all part of the family. So we’ve rounded up our favourite dog-friendly hotels and country houses in the Lakes, to give you plenty of options when taking your next weekend break.

The Top Choices for Country Walking Sticks

9 February 2016 11:57:06 GMT

Some people like to walk with them, some without them. But walking sticks are not just mobility aids. If you enjoy walking in the countryside in Britain, you may find you enjoy taking a stick with you. A stick is a constant companion and provides many useful benefits, such as: 1. Helping you to keep your balance 2. Providing excellent support when descending steep hills or traversing a steep hill 3. Increasing your stride and hiking speed with arm power 4. Reducing stress on your knee and hip joints 5. Offering a support if you get injured 6. Clearing up the path up ahead 7. Reaching up high to knock fruit out of trees for example 8. Use as a monopod to stabilize your camera or binoculars 9. Helping companions to cross difficult areas (a "lend a hand stick") 10. Retrieving things out of reach or in the water 11. Something to lean on when you stop for a breather 12.Testing water or mud for depth.

 Ramshorn cane for walking

There is a lot of choice on the market today and it's easy to find something suitable for both men and women, young and old. Adjustable aluminium hiking poles, for example, are usually purchased in pairs and have either crutch or grip style handles. They are lightweight and practical and can telescope down to a small size for easy stowage. Hiking poles are good for ascending or traversing steep hills as the height of each pole can be adjusted quickly and easily, meaning you can have your sticks at different lengths. These are the most popular choice for walkers. Wooden hiking sticks have more of a "good companion" feel to them. There a lots of variations to these sticks but they all have a lanyard (or strap) that wraps around the arm to free up your hand when needed, as well as a metal spiked tip with a detachable rubber ferrule for use on hard ground. Variations of these sticks can also be purchased, such as a camera mount in the top of the stick to turn it into a monopod or embedded magnets on the handle tops to pick up dropped keys or other metal objects.

Antler thumbstick walking cane

Thumbsticks and wading sticks are other popular choices. Thumbsticks are similar to wooden hiking sticks but with Y shaped handles that are held with the thumb hooked over the V, or leaned on with the forearm leaning in the V. Wading sticks are the same as thumbsticks but have a weighted end and a long lanyard that wraps around the upper body. They are often used by fishermen for keeping their balance in rivers and testing the depth of the water. The weighted end keeps the stick from floating off downstream, as does the lanyard. Cross-head and knob-sticks are both one-piece sticks that are strong and reliable and so useful on a walk. They are far superior to a stick just picked from out of the bush - these sticks are dried for 2 years, straightened and grown in such a way that they do not require a join from the handle to the shaft. This means they are both lightweight and strong.

The Walking Stick - "A Gentleman's Accessory"

Since replacing the sword as the must-have gentleman's accessory in the 17th Century, the humble walking stick has come a long way. From traditional wooden crook canes to silver plated dress canes, there's a stick to suit all tastes and budgets. Walking sticks are not just mobility aids, but have lots of other uses. Country walkers and hikers use adjustable metal poles or wooden poles for their outdoor pursuits. Actors use all kinds of sticks in their productions - for example, Hercule Poirot's smart gentleman's cane. Fishermen use wading sticks to test water depth and to keep their balance in fast moving water. Thumbsticks and market sticks are chosen by those who work outdoors as something to lean on while having a rest, and shepherd's crooks are still used by people who look after live stock.

Chrome topped walking cane

Collectors of sticks (and there are a great many of you!) often choose animal-topped sticks, famous characters, system sticks and the wonderful choice of handmade sticks that out there. But it is the formal occasions and special events which provide the best opportunities for carrying a cane. Silver, chrome and brass handled sticks tend to be the top choices for weddings, funerals and evenings out, as well as canes adorned with crystals. At Walking Sticks Online, we have more choice than you can shake a stick at! For a variety of handmade and machine-made walking sticks of every kind, visit www.walkingsticksonline.co.uk to find something for you. Guest post by Emily Hannah

Top 10 Deals for Under £20

4 February 2016 15:49:16 GMT

Still feeling the pinch of January or feeling discouraged by the wet weather? It’s time to introduce you to our biggest ever clearance sale, where many of our leading products can be bought for just £20 or less! From clothing to fishing gear, there’s sure to be something that takes your fancy. This Seeland Adam fleece, for example, makes an ideal midlayer, being warm yet lightweight with flatlock stitchings and a handy half zip front. Alternatively, you may prefer our very own Harris Sherpa fleece-lined shirt, with a special Sherpa fleece lining for optimum warmth, full frontal zip and handwarmer pockets. Thick and cosy, it makes a marvellous outer layer for casual wear or long days spent outdoors.

Seeland Adam fleece from John Norris

Women can enjoy their own share of the bargains, starting with the Seeland Adele fleece. Lightweight and cosy, it makes a useful midlayer in colder weather as well as a light top layer in spring and summer. It’s also conveniently quick-drying too, helping it hold up in damper conditions when you’re caught without a waterproof!

Seeland ladies' outdoor fleece

This ladies’ Danehill quilted gilet from John Norris makes an invaluable wardrobe essential, with its hugging fit for a warm and flattering style as well as complete and utter comfort. The outer is a timeless chevron quilting, with full frontal zip and detachable hood.

If your fishing tackle is in need of a refresh, then look no further than our Shakespeare telescopic folding trout nets. Light and easy to use, they’re made with super soft meshing and an elasticated lanyard for complete control. They’re also fully extendible, making them exceptionally easy to carry and store.

Telescopic folding nets

Meanwhile, our John Norris Atlantic twin colour fly lines leave little to be desired when it comes to superior casting and control. With an extended rear taper and a larger diameter running line, they bring about great results without the need for perfect technique. With individual line size head lengths available, they’re available for under £20 but can also be purchased in a pair for £30. If enhanced stability and turnover is what you need, these lines can assist you in all of your salmon fishing challenges.

Twin colour fly lines

We also have a stylish selection of shirts made with 100% cotton for comfort and breathability. The Seeland Burley shirt, for example, is a handy spring or summer essential with a pleasant check design and herringbone twill. It’s ideal for light fishing in summer or as a base layer when outdoors. Alternatively, this selection of Country Tattersall shirts from John Norris is another simple yet practical staple, with a brushed inside for extra comfort.

Seeland Burley shirt in brindle check

Finally, when it comes to keeping warm outdoors, don’t forget the head! This Harkila Annaboda windstopper is a wonderfully soft knitted hat, with a Gore windstopper membrane making it exceptionally warm and comfortable.

And if you’re regularly out on the water or love to take long muddy walks, then the John Norris welly boot bag is an absolutely must-have. Made with a stiffened waterproof base, this bag is a handy accessory, with a double zip to make stepping into the bag and out of your boots an effortless process. Keep it in your car so it’s always at hand when you need it most.

It's that time of year again! The new salmon and trout fishing seasons are officially upon us, and it's time for us all to be brushing up our gear ready to get out on the waters again (if you've not already done so). As usual, we've decided to give our anglers a rundown of all the UK's opening and closing fishing season dates (starting here with Scotland, whose season opened on 11th January). Each river  varies, so be sure to check the dates for the rivers you're interested in so that you can plan your sessions accordingly. Remember that there is no salmon fishing allowed anywhere on Sundays by law, and that there is no closed season for rainbow trout or pike as this is available all year round. (The same is true for sea or coarse fishing.) The start of the wild brown trout season is 15th March. For those of you who are interested, some rivers hold Annual Opening ceremonies to mark the official start of the new season. The River Spey and the River Tay are two such rivers - for more information about what to expect, head to their websites.

Top Tips for Fishing in Winter

16 January 2016 09:37:29 GMT

None of us want to make the cold wintry weather an excuse for not getting out on the water. Nevertheless, the approach we take to fishing will differ drastically as the seasonal temperatures drop. We’ve put together our top tips for fishing in winter, to ensure you get just as much out of your session as you would any other time of year. Wrap up warm and get out there!  

1. Location

Naturally, the places you normally frequent to obtain your catch may not be so generous to you from November to March. Consider changing your choice of venue to one where there appears to be regular catches – talk to fellow anglers, your local tackle shop or consult weekly magazines to find out the best spots. Look out for summer fish holding features, deep water and/or drop-offs, as these tend to collect a lot of weed and plant life in the winter time which act as a natural food source for fish.  

2. The Right Clothing

Having the right clothing is absolutely essential in winter – the more comfortable you are, the longer you’ll be able to stick it out and the more you will enjoy your session. Remember the three layer system – the base layer, which sits closest to the skin, is breathable and will wick away moisture; the mid layer, which is usually some sort of light jacket or fleece to act as insulation between you and the elements, and the top layer, which ideally should be both waterproof and windproof. You must also not forget your hands, feet and head, which are all key places where the body loses heat. Always ensure you wear a good pair of sporting or all-round gloves that will keep your hands warm without interfering with your cast. Appropriate socks will also keep your feet warm and protected from blisters or chafing, whilst the right pair of waterproof boots will offer warmth, comfort and support. Finally, don’t forget the head – a snug beanie, cap or trapper hat will work wonders at protecting your ears from wind and keeping your whole body that bit warmer.  

3. Lighten the Tackle

It’s important to keep your tackle light in winter, not least because of the drop in fish activity and increase in water clarity. A lightweight rod like the Airflo Airtec Switch Nano will give you better control over your casts in uncertain conditions, whilst some lighter, well lubricated line like the Airflo Ridge floating running lines will help to reduce the risk of getting coils of line tangled at your feet(!).  

4. Choose Your Guides Carefully

It’s important to choose your guides carefully for winter fishing in order to reduce icing during those really cold snaps. The smaller your guide is, the quicker it will freeze up, so consider opting for a standard size guide and always check your line regularly for damage following any icing.
