no, no I'm resisting.
actually the wee Sage is a braw enough rod, flexes through the cork.
I phoned up about the rod but resisted temptation.

Compy I was in Johnny Norris today having a good look at that rod, seemed bloody nice to me. Surprised it hasn't been snapped up yet!

where I'll be fishing is more weighted to delicacy than brute strength.
btw the bargain I thought I'd got originally turned out to be the old Walker model - 1990s like a poker. am done wi B&W the noo.

strange are the twists of fate - I'm the proud owner of a 15 foot 10# Powerlite de lux - as braw a rod as er I saw.
I got a refund (less the wee postage - thanks guys I owe you one), for the earlier clothes prop.
