Fishing

Post by jeffreyo » Thu Oct 14, 2010 10:49 pm

I may be the only Old Blue to have been taught to cast a salmon fly in the art school car park (by the redoubtable Nell Todd), but I can't be the only OB to cast a fly. Is there any support for an Old Blues Fly Fishing Association (Old Bluffas)? Any OB is certainly welcome as a guest on my waters in Lancashire and the Welsh Borders.

I have only just seen this item. Nell Todd gave me her steel trout fly rod 8 ft, which finally rusted through some five years ago.Very early use of steel in fly rods.top class fittings. Interested in your proposal for fishing meeting. I have recently retired as the North East Regional Director for the Salmon and Trout Association. Fish 3 times a week in the season. Mainly trout now as the salmon rod has become a bit heavy! Regards John Saunders.
