Mum's the word

Post by Hovis »

Bless her. My dear old Mum has just made me these wonderful rod bags. She knows I like to dabble in rod building and restoration and didn't want them getting damaged after. I think she's done a great job. Heavy duty and well made. These will last longer than me!

I have laid aside business, and gone a'fishing.

Very nice, she should set up a business!

Good old mum :Thumb:

I can see orders on the way.
If you have no grease with you, and your rings are full of ice, do not cut out the ice with a pen-knife but get your man to put the rings one by one in his mouth, and so to thaw the ice.

They look great, did you have any input on the design front as they have the look of practicality and quality about them.
:Hat: to your mum.

Wish I could use a sewing machine like that. Well done!

With a beautiful silvery sheen;
He'll snatch at your flies
With a lightning-like rise
And unless you are sharp, he's just been.
