Could you describe the action and stiffness at all Marc or better still do you have or know of any CCS data?  I would be using it mainly for bandies in wild lochs with an SLX and maybe a bit of g*% nymphing stuff (with a fly line)  :z4

That's the Union Jack Marc the flag of the United Kingdom. If it were an English flag it would be.... how shall I put this...... less colourful and considerably simpler :wink
However there's no denying that it is the flag that is frequently (if not always) used to represent an English language option on many websites.

Strictly speaking its the Union Flag, Jack should really be used in a Naval context  :wink

Originally comprising of the English and Scotish flags, Ireland was added in 1801 which became Northern Ireland in 1921. Poor Wales don't get a look in as they are a Principality and not a Kingdom.
