Hi, Bob, as you know, if they're not match fishing, those keepnets will be put to better use;)

KC there is a pub just up the road from there.

Richard wife wouldn't let take camera and fishing gear, it had to be one or the other.

Heinz thank you for your visit and comments.

Hi Mark,

I think that the little red float is just about to go on a run!

All the best Peter

I'm no fishing expert Mark but what amazing seats! They seem to hold everything! The chap on the left looks like my old granddad :-) Like.

pedrocut Hi Peter, it was a false alarm.

Andy I'd been fishing on the Trent the day before - wasn't allowed to fish here, wife's orders. I'm slowly getting around to your gallery, I do like what I've seen of your Cornwall collection.

Rosa the chairs are a must have and crucial to catching fish - That's how I justify the expense to my wife. I own and use this chair.

Mark: I was in no doubt that there was. Why else pitch up at a swim by a lock.

Hi Mark,

Fishing tackle has changed over the years. A specimen hunters chair!

Tight lines Peter

Free Wheels on March 4, 2012

Hi Peter, It has changed, the fish don't know that. If you can read the water and can reach, a broom handle, string and a bent sewing needle will do the job. Having said that, Carp are clever and learn very quickly.

The chair is comfortable, and when it's hot, nothing better than reclining it and resting you eyes:)

manual exp hi, and welcome to my gallery. You can beat a days fishing... by catching something as well:)

Hi Ian I have 3 keepnets;) The chair is a very useful bit of kit. It does fold down flat and is light weight.
