Another Yorkshireman

Post by Thyratron » Thu Dec 20, 2018 6:59 am

Hello My name is Paul. I'm from Wakefield in west Yorkshire. I'm 71 years old.
I've been interested in angling since being a schoolboy, and it's nice to find a forum that is interested in the tackle, I used when I was young. I haven't fished for a number of years but of late, since finding this forum, my interest has been re-kindled.

I love centrepin reels. at the moment I have five maybe six unless I gave the cheap alcocks away? They are all in different states of repair and with your help I hope to change that.
I have two cane rods, both of which need refurbing.

Thank you for allowing me a place here.

Hi Paul, Welcome, its very cosy on this site. Get out SOON with what ever you have as long as it will hold together.The pleasure is returning to cane and pin as it use to be ! Refurb and acquisition can come later.
