Col Esmond Drury?  Had to think hard and kept thinking of rod manufacturers but then moved onto thinking what item of tackle transends all disiplines?  Answer hooks.  Then thought who'd have been around then?  Partridge aye but a brand not a person, Kate  :z4 Kamasan? def not, Drennan?  still too early, Esmond Drury though?  Aye he'd be around then.

Was a bait fisher before he was a fly fisher as well i believe?  :z8

Allan

Just in case i'm right (and before someone nips in with a joker card  :z4 i'll post this one (not to be answered if i'm wrong with Hamish's question though  :z4)
