Fellas, I give you Charles Sykes, Penrith. Could you walk past this door?

I work in one every day but if we're out and about and there's a tackle shop, I have to go in. I'd be in there like a shot.

Well, no harm to have a little browse :whistle:
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.

Probably dip myself in glue and have a roll about in it.

I couldn't ... and didn't !

I lived near Armathwaite for a few years and fished the Caldew pretty much weekly. However I didn't know this shop was there.

I'd imagine John Norris grabs most of the attention...

Sorry, I realise I should have used the Cumbrian full stop.
