It must feel rewarding when bringing these items made by artisans from our angling past back to life and to know that they can be used to catch new leviathans and bring them to the bank side - Well done.

Beautiful work Len, these things need to be saved for the next generation of traditiional fisherman.
The good angler is not the one with expensive equipment. Common sense, observation and trying to realize
what is happening above and below water will catch fish no matter what price equipment you fish with.

A most interesting and extremely satisfying post. History in the making twice over - one rarely comes across that. Wonderful stuff indeed.
