Probably.
What is it? How much was it? How big is your budget??

Living with deep, full breaths is the way of the trout. Fish, it seems, are the ultimate teachers in breathing.

hey rob,  what do you call an idiot who hangs about with musicians?

... the drummer

ah, it's funny cos it's true... :)



Ahem..I believe the joke goes, Whats deaf and dumb and hangs about bands...the drummer!..lol

I will have you know the two notes I have to remember for the snare are very difficult. I can never remember which one is fleft and which is right..lol. Add to that the noise of those bloody pipes and it becomes a whole lot harder :)
Ok, I admit it, I quite like this salmon fishing lark....

Hi Ewan, I sent you a pm regarding one of your guitars. Love​ the Marshall 800. You're right about the old Gibson models. Cheers, Ray

I remember Taking my 3 wt up to a hill loch but the snag was that I had taken a reek with a 6 wt line on it so I used it wih no problems other than the rod felt slower but it cast well enough , and I caught fish so the day wasn't spoilt, Derek Roxborough

I use a 5 weight GT90 on my Sage XP 3 weight when fishing very close on the river. Allows the rod to load with only 10 feet of line out the tip.
