Not sure if in the right place - but there was some months ago talk about a Richard Walker spreader block. Well today, when uncovering a few more books in my loft, I found "Still Water Angling" by Richard Walker, (1953 1st Edition - didn't even know I had it!) and within it was this illustration of his landing net. I add it in case it may be useful to some.

A pretty close copy of the original - hole diameter slightly smaller and block straighter.

Has this project died a death, if so are there any spreader blocks available from elsewhere?

Thanks
