Just got back myself, sorry I didn't bump into you AC but I did meet Sir Wal and Lady Wal (thanks for the beautiful rod Wal) Lucky Luca and Mrs LL (thanks for the lovely Holdall), Richard B, Richard C, big Dave Burr, Lea Dweller, Fredline, and who did I buy the terrific Trudex from? I am sorry I have forgotten your name....identify yourself so I can thank you!AshbyCut wrote:Just back from Redditch ... and what a joy it was to meet up with so many TFF friends both old and new !!! Far too many to list, so I won't try in case I miss anyone out !!! It was also good to see more TFF members with tables
It was successful in other ways too ... meeting Mr. Fallon and taking up his 'Fair Special' on a subscription ... Taking the Edgar Sealey "Roach Rod" back into the AC fold ... and collecting a rather 'special' rod for use with my Hardy 'Eureka' reel (watch the Hardy Rods thread).
Needless to say ... at 11am there was a perfectly observed 2 minutes silence. It was a privilege to take part.
I could have spent days in there and a load of cash (if I had it) I was like a child in a sweet shop....ah well dream on!
