Restored Milbro Caledonian christened !!!

Post by Tonytoned » Sat May 26, 2018 3:48 pm

Hello there

This is live from the bankside! The Milbro Caledonian 9ft has been officially christened with a lovely little Crucian. I am using a small 6" swing tip and opened swim feeder. Very pleased.

The wonders of technology available to us all now never fails to amaze me. Nice when a christening takes place, I remember mine well and the satisfaction it gives.. and it doesn't have to cost the earth for such joy to come about. :Thumb: :Hat:

Well done. A very nice christening! Those lily pads look like they're begging to be fished.
I walked across an empty land
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
I felt the earth beneath my feet
Sat by the river and it made me complete.

Thanks Reedling. Just like the broadcast that Bernard Venables and Bill Latto did on June 16th in 1953....."Well almost"!!!

Thank you LuckyLuca. They were fished and produced a few more Crucians.
