Good evening Gentlemen, My apologies for the lack of update but I have been unwell .
The story so far, I travelled to Long Eaton on The 19th of December to meet Andrew and collect my new Avocet, I arrived bang on time and Andrew greeted me at the door, We talked for a long time about the rod and its specification and all things fishing and after a while I said to Andrew I could wait no more ,I had been looking at the rod in its bag whilst we were talking.
Andrew passed me the rod and I excitedly opened it to reveal a masterpiece :Thumb:
The rod surpassed all of my expectations and the quality is second to none, After many many wiggles in the garden I was over the moon. I thanked Andrew and made my way to a stretch of Derbyshires River Dove.
What a day new rod and duly christened with many hard fighting trout and chub. What a pre xmas present.
As to the types of fishing I would use the rod for ? I have only managed to use it the once but as I expected ideal for grayling,trout ,chub,roach river fishing and I am sure it would handle good barbel . Lake or pond , ideal tench and small carp rod. This looks to me a perfect all rounder. Many thanks AJD
Weather permitting I will post photos this weekend.
Happy new year to you all :Thumb:

Morning Gents, I managed a couple of hours on one of my local rivers yesterday in some glorious winter sunshine, Unfortunately the fishing itself was not as good but did manage a few small chublets,dace and roach but no sign of any chub which I had hoped for. This was only the second outing for my new Avocet and I tried to take a few photos to show off Andrews rod making skills .
