The rain stayed away for todays Sunbury Antiques Market though it was held under a grey sky. It was a later start today with us all heading off just before 8am in search of a few wish list items. On arrival it was noted that most dealers had taken notice of the Met office forecast and made provision for a downpour. The usual sea of carpets outside the hall were limited to a few that could be rolled up had the heavens opened.

My dear friend David was looking for a fire back but settled for a lead seal detailing three lions heads to place on his fireplace and Anna came equipped with a rucksack and in the end purchased a cutlery box to keep her jewelry in, I however was on the scout for vintage tackle.

I found an old fly rod by Gamage, the cane was a beautiful honey colour but it had a bad set in the top section. I found several vintage landing nets, boxes of floats with named floats by Ivan Marks, Harcork, Allcock and Belglow. Other items of note were a small stuffed pike on a coat rack and the one thing I acquired being a Efgeeco Rod Holdall in excellent condition with original label and a sip that worked.
