Wallop Brook

Post by Ericsbeetle »

I was at the Grayling Society Symposium last winter and in the charity Auction there was one of these , I got it at a very good price and added it to my modest collection of bamboo rods , Granted the top droops a bit but its nearly as old as me and probably creaks less and actually isnt to bad at all . I was well pleased , anyway I took it for a run out on a new stream a week or so ago , What a cracking rod. I would post a pic but cant work out how too...there are some pics on my blog though. How do i post a pic? Pic added thanks for the help!!!

That sounds an interesting rod and with a bit of charisma to!
I have just spent just five looking at your blog; it really looks very good indeed.
I have saved it on my home screen and will enjoy reading it.. there really is lots of very interesting posts ands links... I clicked on Isaac Walton, started reading and new I will have to come back to it... unfortunately got to go to work..
Well done and keep is posted re rod.

Ps... any TFF members reading this.. be sure to home in on the blog.
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!

The meeting with Cleggi was many years ago but it stuck in my mind . I have been fortunate over the years to meet a few interesting chaps . I met Ollie Edwards a few times an absolute Gent , I met Hugh Falkus once he didn’t want to converse and told me to Fxxxx off .
