I look forward to tidying it up, and even more so using it someday soon
As for equivalent value according to

£124 in 1956 is equivalent to £2,838.87 today! That's a Barder 2-tip fly rod with aluminium tube!
Think its probably a lot more than that. I never understand what they base these inflation figures on but it must be wrong.
In 1956 a typical weekly wage would have been around £5.
Now you might say a typical weekly wage is at least £500, a increase of around 100 x.
That makes £124 in 1956 equivalent to at least £12,000 now
