I second that Badger, a joy to do business with.

Very impressed with it Sean. What a great builder Cliff Constable seems to have been.

Wow, What a fish Gurn. Well done on the fish and the rod. :Hat:

God never did make a more calm, quiet, innocent recreation than angling.

Nobby, all the trips I've had to the pool hold special memories. Between our party of three this year we had 22 carp and a good few eels. The pool giving up it's full repertoire, classic commons, leather, fully scaled and linear mirrors. In fishing terms it was a fine result though I never really fish 'hard' at Redmire. However, year upon year, the real pleasure I take is from the surroundings, the relaxation, Bamfords 'hospitality' :cheers: and time spent with good friends. Add to this the christening of a new rod and yes Nobby, I've talked myself into thinking it actually was my best trip. :Chuckle:
