Dawn of the Dealers

Dawn at Kempton yesterday the last stop on a five day round trip that took in the wilds of Ludlow and the riot that is Redditch.   The van is packed to the gunnels with what can only be described in all modesty as genuine Vintage Fishing Tackle for the Soul.   Unloading will commence on the cloth  tomorrow morning from 08:00hrs.  The kettle will be on.   I look forward to your good company.

The National Vintage Fishing Tackle Fair

Across all Arcadia kettles are boiled dry and the last of the bottles of Victory Gin are emptied whilst trumpets continue to sound for our hosts at the Kingsley Sports Centre; Mr. Samuel Guyatt and his wondrous tea van and of course all those intrepid souls who stalled out and who visited Sunday's National Vintage Fishing Tackle Fair including those gentlemen who came as far as from Germany and Denmark.  The next National Vintage Fishing Tackle Fair will take place on Sunday 17th May 2015.  Until then handbills advertising the Fair printed in letterpress by the mighty Martin Clark of Tilley Printing will be distributed by urchins and others at auctions; fairs; markets and over cups of tea in distant b-road lay-bys.  Should you wish to have one to put up in your local tackle shop or on the notice board of a discerning public house or should you wish to enquire about the taking of a stall please don't hesitate to call me on the field telephone number 07980 274 383.  Thank-you.
