Thanks for the revamp in this thread guys.
Mr Harrison has taken it to the next level it's getting very interesting
£120.00 is the best offer I have so far managed to get. If anyone on here would like an exceptional example of the Night Jar still with its original packaging...

Thanks to Shaun the alarm is now on its way to a B.C.S.G member and will be used in an article about vintage bite alarms and fished with to try catch a carp for the peice using the correct tackle.
My old mate Mick got a fair price he was happy with and most of all its found the right home.
A win win situation
Thank you to all for your input and help :Hat: :cheers:
Your one bite away from the best session of your life

Somewhat belated contribution to the Nightjar. As far as I'm aware it was a development between Dick Walker and Bill Watson of Hull (a tackle dealer). They were good friends. Whilst they were working on the idea Bill gave me this prototype to test. The idea was a bite alarm that would also sound with drop back bites, unlike the Heron type alarms. I explained this and showed a picture of the prototype in Histrory of Carp Fishing Revisited.
