The secrets out - now I will struggle for a peg!

No you won't Peter, I shall be there at 5am to reserve one for you!

Have you given your new (old) Nottingham reel an outing yet?

Given it 3 outings, matched with a Hardy roach rod. The strange thing is that about 10 persons walked past whilst I was fishing and no one asked how I was doing or stopped to admire the uniqueness behind this combination. Explained this to Adrian on the telephone last night - and his explanation was quite feasible - "They think you are mad or mentally sub-normal, so give you a wide berth" HA- HA - how true!

I'm off to the land of nod tomorrow. Thinking of fishing the smallest pond 'corner pond'. if anyone has any tips please?
I'm only aware of three ponds, and have only fished the first two as I'm not keen on "snake lakes".
Sorry I can't help!
