Beat me to it Nobby. That's the pool he fished in flood and then went back and fished it when the water fined down.

Good guess chaps but not quite. John Wilson fished at Lenwade whereas this pool is at Elsing, a bit further upstream.

He had some great fish from Lenwade, I especially enjoyed the brace of two pound roach but he also had some massive bream. I have fished it a couple of times and had some good fishing myself, but nothing like that!

A wee, old Allcocks Record Breaker I recently finished.
Quite scrappy to start with, having about 4 different colours of thread on it.....must say though,,,a pleasure to fish with.

The charm of fishing is that it is the pursuit of what is elusive but attainable,
a perpetual series of occasions for hope.

Nice job Pinkster, they are a lovely fishing rod, although rather heavy in the hand

That looks like a lovely job you have made there Pinkster, a rod you have brought back to life yourself always gives immense pleasure in use. Brilliant. :Hat:
