I like that... I think John Wilson had one like that or very similar.
Very nice.

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!

You're quite correct :Thumb: I think he had some sponsorship from Masterline

My better half Ruth calls this type of attire an “Action Jacket “.To me they are something very different to a waistcoat.OK, they dont have any arms in, but that is about where the similarity ends . Ruth bought me a quite expensive one some years ago , then she found another one that a friends father was passing on , so I had the two.

Over the years I found them more of a hindrance than a help, I could never find anything in the many pockets they have. The pockets seemed to be just everywhere, in plain sight or hidden under another pocket, or maybe in a seam somewhere round the back, sides or front.They seem very popular in the game fishing world, but maybe game fishermen dont carry around with them as much junk as I do. :Chuckle: If that is the case then it is my failing to slim down the bits I take with me that makes them OK ? I will hold up my hands to that .They both ended up hung behind the workshop door with a multitude of other coats, overalls, waterproofs etc .I had a clear out some years ago .

They both ended up in a local Charity shop , they were snapped up.

They sound a good idea in theory but I'll have to see in practice come the 16th :Thumb:
I think I'll hedge my bets though and put another hook on the shed door :Chuckle:
