    Hi paddy , over a small westons vintage I thought we need something different . Still with a leg pull to get a reaction ! An old Shakespeare superstar , Tony Eaves was at one of our meetings . Kenny Giles in the chair proudly announces we are all having new navy blue woolen v neck sweaters , for sponsored events and PICKING up trophies 😀 😀 😀 . Can we have our names embroidered on them ? Was a suggestion , A most audible and certain Eavesy NO we will not , They already know who we are , Very astute , now very rich . Allegedley . We was hand picked and he was right . 😉

    I think it can break the ice, but the main reason I have my name on my box is security.

    Even if the vynil is peeled off the paint underneath will be faded less than the rest, so my box (a Rive) would be recognisable. Added to that are etchings, marks, my name etc written in discrete places…

    All my kit is marked in some way…

    Howdo Paul – i dont think people tend to have box an t-shirts so much know as in the past, do you?
    You see more on commercials thats for sure, but thats probably due to their being more anglers being in one place than being on rivers?

    I should have known there would be a practical reason Kagger , but no one would think my old match box worth nicking . In fact a thief got in my house last year , Got a good laptop , some qaulity hair straighteners and left all my tackle !!! :p :p :p

    New the mention of the girly stuff would raise a laugh. Heres one ime at Woodlands view some years ago and got battered by a Black Country fellow with a washing up liquid bottle for a cup . A wave of depression come over me and I drove the 20 miles home . When I looked over my shoulder to reverse on the drive I got another wave . NO KIT . Back to Woodlands and Mick Mason had put it in his house for me . All my depression subsided and I pondered on that battering , And how to put it right . 😉

    helps the people marking up the weighing in sheets … perhaps!

    talking of Tony E …. truly wonderful float angler. I remember getting a right battering off him on the section above welford many years ago. IIRC, he specialised in using very light rigs – fine & far off. He fished a couple of matches on the Avon two or so years back but I haven’t seen him since.

    Back int he day I would know who ALL of the superteam were …. not now – but that could be a reflection of how much less i’m reading (don’t take the weeklies or monthlies). Not all the canal heads anyway ….

    even when it’s not my birthday?
    when it comes to filling the old tub i’m with queen lizzie the first:- i have a bath once a year whether i need one or not 😀 😀 😀 😀
    regarding her night attire. our youngest is 15, we will be celebrating our silver dog collar this summer so there is no chance of them going missing.
    besides she had an op tuesday and the man with the knife had to go in further than expected,
    she is in a lot of pain and will take a while to heal, even with a pump attached to her belly.
    this also means no fishing as i have to stay in and play nurse having the odd hourly pass to go shopping.
    oh such fun!

    thanks for the kind words.
    she is feeling a little better and should be coming home today, although it will take some time to heal up. this op. site was first opened 10 years ago and after 12 or 13 ops. we are still hoping for it to heal. it’s just a silly hernia site that keeps filling with infection.
