In my opinion, the new stuff ( like so many more things) isn't a patch on the old flasks.

All the best.
The old Stanley was rusty and smelt musty but was fine. Matron :Scared: did not approve.....a new one was delivered for Christmas.

It is nice and clean and shiney but seems lighter in construction(less metal).

Time will tell Wanderer.

Still kind words and good intentions. But see what Dante had to say about good intentions. Must say the rod is spot on though for tench. Still got the barmy Bill rod as I would be interested?

I had a pair of those chequered Vans back in the day when I rode bmx, so nearly 40 years ago...I wonder does Mr Yeats now endorse them with his skater mates?

Back to the pies.....hmnnn :Sun:
Chequered Vans are brilliant.....not sure they need an endorsement from Chris though.

Pies are a source of happiness, make no mistake!

Yet to fish Sinah young Rob as it is a bit far for me.
Jock seems nice enough.

Funtley has some good middle weight tench in it.

Like the place and just about the nearest padas water apart from the Wally.

looking

You know it makes sense Dave. The shoemaker of distinction is VANS......down with the kids and comfortable; you just can't believe how on trend Fatty is.

Did you try deep shallow Waggler.....bet you didn't!

Also pole floats fished on yer normal tench rods, as long as they be Drennan and set up for smallish. Carp are good and worth having a go with.

Stick with me kid and you won't go wrong :Tongue:

Speaking from experience Moley do not discard your old Stanley! They are vastly superior to the newer versions! Deep clean internally with bicarbonate of soda, and if necessary touch up the external paintwork with hammmerite. They are irreplaceable (unless someone knows better?)
