    Lindisfarne, The Geordie Genius, The Alan Hull story

    Amazing how Stratocasters and Telecasters haven't evolved at all since the early 1950's isn't it? A perfect design that could not be improved in seventy years of technical evolution. Same can be applied to 1950's Gibsons.

    Lindisfarne, The Geordie Genius, The Alan Hull story

    Just checked the list of lots on Christie's website. The Hitmaker wasn't on it although a Fender Custom Shop copy was. Most notable for any guitar buffs was a '57 Strat that has had a black refin estimated at $30,000 - $40,000.Having watched the Clapton and Gilmour auctions I doubt it'll make...

    Plans for Next Year

    Andrew, I've been fishing it for the last 36 years. Anything you want to know please pm me. There is availability as a lot of the old regular rods are dropping of their collective perches nowadays.

    The most salmon ever?

    Isn't it tragic how so many of these characters have gone from the river now. On reflection, not just from the river but from society.

    When did it become "a thing" to target coloured salmon?
