Winter project bank sticks

Post by Harry H » Sat Feb 10, 2018 7:15 pm

I have some others but there has been plenty of times when I had thought it would be nice to have one that's adjustable for those windy days and when ledgering.
To the odds and sods box I went for an old cane landing net pole,alloy adjustable rod rest and a brass poker.
A bit of tinkering and this is the result.
There are three things that improve with age: wine, friendship and water sense, and there's no short cut.

With my silken line and delicate hook, I wander in a myriad of ripples and find freedom.
