What a great time I had yesterday, travelling north from our meeting place at the M25 junction at Enfield, Fredline and myself travelled to Redditch through at times torrential but much needed rain! We then proceeded to "set up shop" and then wait to see what we could sell. We saw several new faces including Snape, the youthful Maggot Drowner, also Allrounder and several others ( I will have to learn to write names down, or take pictures)
We also saw many more TFF members that we had met before, too many to remember or list names! It was good to see the fair so well supported, I do hope that this continues when the venue returns to the original Abbey Stadium. I had the pleasure of showing my "Watermole+ Powell Conquest" to a number of people, including some visitors from Germany who actually asked to see it. I can only assume that when I showed it to several TFF members at the last Romsey word spread to Germany? I am looking forward to using it a great deal in the coming season and beyond, after all that it what it was made for! I missed seeing AC, (just glimpsing his back as he left) also missed seeing SK at his first Redditch, hopefully we will meet up somewhere during the season and have a chat! All in all a great day, got home tired but happy!

One of the best Fairs to date!... :Ok:

As usual I was stalled out next to Ted & Fredline, with the usual banter & laughs, opinions, like "anyone got a speedia?" :laugh1: Met many faces & names, new and old, but due to my decrepit brain, I`ve already forgotten, to whom I met & chatted with :Brickwall:

I hope the atmosphere and fun continue for many years to come... :Thumb:

I might be able to help as I had a conversation with the couple in question. They came from Beetley in Norfolk and it was their first time of having a stall at the fair. If you contact John Andrews he may have their contact details.

Attended the show at the weekend and very good it was too, met with some of forum members for the first time and had our usual table visit from the man himself Dave Burr :Ok: Lea Dweller and Maggotdrowner also popped over for a chat but sadly our good men Nobby and James couldn't make it.
Trade was good and the meeting of some new faces there too, Bob & Coleen Savage made a first time couple of hours trip from Norfolk and spent a good amount of time sitting with us talking about reels, they rang me and told me last night they enjoyed it so much they will be back.
I do think like a few others have said it was a top show this time, always helps if the stall holders have a good day but most important is to see the same faces as usual.
Hoping for the return of Ray Moss to our stand at the next meeting and I passed on your good wishes to him Dave Burr. :cheers:

I had a thoroughly enjoyable day 'stalling out', - despite being somewhat pooped - having been out late partying the night before :Ok: :cheers: (sober partying I should add).

As always it was good to meet and chat with a number of TFF'ers and hope to see everyone again in November assuming the change of venue can be arranged.
