Green & Gold - A Fallon's angler film

Post by Kev Parr » Fri Mar 02, 2018 12:50 pm

Hey all

To celebrate the publication of Fallon's angler Issue 12 (which has gone to press and available to preorder for March 9th - on time!!!), I joined Garrett and Nick on the River Kennet at The Old Mill, Aldermaston.

For many years this was my favourite fishing spot, but our move west means I haven't fished it for many years. It was cold, the river was very low, and the target was a 2lb perch.

Apologies for the lack of cane, but my elbows have been a bit dodgy of late, and 12 feet of glass fibre (my late Grandfather's rod) was a lot more comfortable to wield than a lump of wood.....!

Hope you enjoy it!

Very nice indeed Kev - useful to have a ghillie! Was that a new float, specially for the occasion?

It was a lucky float - made for me by TemeLAD. But sadly, it didn't make the journey home......

Funnily enough, it has been replaced as my 'lucky' float by one of your 'specials' - but frozen fingers managed to snap that in half last week....

Thanks CrayCane - As with the last film, Nick should take the credit. I definitely had the easy part!

I'll make sure I have a good supply of 'specials' next time we fish together, you must take some spares this time. All of them are equally lucky :Hahaha: And if you have the two halves of the broken one, should you wish to preserve that particular 'special' I could always mend it for you.
