The technical team at WordPress have told me that most people read my posts on a Monday evening at 8pm. Over the last few months it has been difficult to post on a regular basis, there is less downtime and with a challenging commercial environment focus has had to be on work. However, I’ve still found time to fish at least once a month and get to at least one car boot fair to find vintage tackle, what I haven’t done is post all the finds and there have been some great ones or detail some of our trips.
As the trout season on rivers draws to a close we are only too aware of the limited time we have to tempt one last brown from the deep pools of the rivers of the South West, we missed our chance for a summer sea-trout and thoughts of a trip to Cornwall or the Boarders for an autumn salmon, now just a dream, just that the reality hits home that time passes us by all too quickly.
Our scouring of boot and table sales was rewarding with magnificent finds but we’ll have to wait for another season before most items will see the riverbank. I will photograph and upload some of our best fly fishing tackle finds from reels , rods, spinners, flies and fly boxes and a range of bags. Some sea and coarse fishing items will be used over the winter months, we found a great Shimano Baitrunner 4500GT, Allcocks Aerial Match, a couple of Abu rods, a well used Hardy LRH No.2 Spinning rod, boxes of Abu spinners and several vintage fishing titles.
Hopefully I will get time over the next week to photograph some of the items and if possible we may head out Perch fishing at the weekend.
