Sprite Hooks - End of the line in Redditch
« on: December 20, 2012, 14:57:54 PM »
Hi folks :cool:

Sad to read today that Vince Green at Sprite Hooks in Redditch is retiring and closing down the company. Sprite hooks was founded in 1974 and was the last remaining hook manufacturer in Redditch, where hooks have been made for around 200 years.

Wishing Vince all the best for his retirement :z16

Some good news...a certain company has put in an offer to buy the business....
Ok, I admit it, I quite like this salmon fishing lark....
