Sounds like a hoot to me and I may have to book a room at chez Young before Ben does.  :z7
Too late.... I have a tent tho.....
Picking up silly lengths of line and casting it all back out was how we did it before shooting heeds came in to fashion. I remember well when Masterline (remember them?) brought out a 40yd DT10 (11 and 12 too) to help folks like me. The wooden box the line came in was my wifes jewelry box for years!
Aye, I remember those lines. I think Masterline may still be on the go.
Does the comp have the same rules?? Are we in for good "Vibrations"?  :z4
Waiting for the comp rules and I expect vibrations will be good  :z7

I remember those boats..... not fondly either  :shock

Hmmm .... "the coracles" ..... now that was a mistake that cost me a few pounds :oops

I have a photo of you on opening day somewhere H, I'll maybe feature it on here soon too :wink

I had written on the back of this photo that Euan's fish turned out to be just over 4 lbs.

Cheers
