All fired up

The PAC Convention was a good day out by unanimous agreement. Talking fishing with enthusiasts like Gord Burton has got me back in the mood. Trouble is that I've got too much work on now to get time to hit the water! If all goes well I'll manage to fish somewhere next week. Here are a few characters from the show.

It's that time again

Less than a week to go to the PAC Convention. I can't believe this will be the 20th convention I'll be showing my rods at. It seems a long time ago I had my first couple of rods on display at Loughborough, and yet it also seems just like yesterday.

After all this time I thought it was time for a change of look for my abbreviated handles. Nothing major, just a slimmer Duplon grip at the butt end and some stainless bits to make them look a bit more 'modern' - but not too radical or 'carpy' (if you get my drift), and my Reduced Graphics option as standard. Everything else is staying the same; same Harrison blanks, same Fuji rings and reel seats, same black whippings.

Here' a taster. More (and better) photos will appear on my website as I phase the build in.
