Re: Some Cane and Floats

John, I don't know about you but I love anything that is well made and well crafted and in this case well decorated as well, no matter what it is, if someone has spent precious time and effort creating something special I am only too happy to offer it a home, I would be more than happy to have them...

Re: (Vintage) Lure Porn

I can safely say that the UK was very many decades, possibly a century, ahead of the Americans in the development of frog lures Will.
