My God Vole you cannot imagine how proud I am feeling at the moment. The raffle was very important to me in more ways than one.
My concern was the rod would go to a collector and not a waggler so to read your post is just fantastic its in good hands that's all I ever asked.
See you in October .

I can't tell you how good that's made me feel about it, Colin!
This rod is definitely going to get wielded and waggled and hopefully bent some more..

Hurrah :wave:
I walked across an empty land
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
I felt the earth beneath my feet
Sat by the river and it made me complete.

Just had a read back about this prize rod, The prize was given so generously, the money raised has gone to a good but very sad cause, the draw was at yet another great cause and the winner from what I have read could be no better an owner. What is there to moan about I ask?

What a nice read. I do enjoy hearing from anglers who consider themselves, it makes me feel at home. Nice result though.

Congratulations on a super read Vole, (as good as or better than most fishing weekly's!) and also hat's off :Hat: to Bumble for the part that he played in providing the catalyst for your most enjoyable read.
Ted.
