    Very sadly, it is true Geoff. I for one will miss my friend enormously, but not as much as the Welsh salmon will. RIP Stephen.

    I'm looking into it at the moment...provided we can get there, Iceland has got a good handle on the situation. Coming home, who knows? If any country deserves "air bridge" status, Iceland do. However, quarantine this end still looks likely, but what rules are in place in 8 weeks time?

    One Rod Test

    Take her shark fishing. For 2020, won't matter which one I keep, but as I have 4 x LTS Explosive 13'6 6pc, I would probably keep the Golden One.
