Leszek is still continuing to fettle and build reels - but I concur with your sentiments gentlemen it is a great shame he is no longer a member of the TFF - and mores the pity......
You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.

I just read that Leszek has left the TFF , he was my hero and learned a lot from his posts. he is the master and will definitely be missed here
