Very neatly done Dave. A lot of work involved but the outcome was well worth the effort. :Hat:

Received my Crabtree net today. Outstanding craftsmanship. Perfect size for chub, barbel and carp. The new season can't come fast enough, roll on the glorious 16th. Thanks again Barney.

The good angler is not the one with expensive equipment. Common sense, observation and trying to realize
what is happening above and below water will catch fish no matter what price equipment you fish with.
