The close season is an important and interesting time for the Angler who set out to catch big fish. It is a timely opportunity for him to make new tackle or renovate old. There are no end of jobs to do, apart from those horrible things called Gardens!

Leszek another work of engineering and art, a great result, I certainly treasure the 3 reels you have made. The NHS reel was a wonderful example of your work, the £4000-00 I paid was worth the money, as it went to help NHS nurses get through Covid 19

All part of the history Grumpy - a few scratches and a bit of wear and tear never did a pin any harm.😃 I couldn’t do anything but use it.

Truly stunning, Lesek. I am in awe of your skills.

Eccentric? yes, but also quite amazing.
