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 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!
