Wonderful shots once again Badger; a very special rod and what a lovely fish.
Andrew's skill in making a rod to precise customer requirements is truly remarkable and he recently made me the rod of my dreams - a 'Kennet Perfection' which aches to test itself on a decent fish. I'll keep the camera in my pocket but doubt I've the composure to take photo's mid battle...they are pretty exceptional!

Hi Hermit - I tried to get some cane bedding shots of this one yesterday but at around 1915hrs the light was a bit dim plus with the extra water and the snags/weed in the swim it was a bit hectic so the photos did'nt come out well. You can see the left overs of the weed :-). Luckily the landing net pole is just about 7' ....needed every last bit to save going in!
