Hi, just stumbled across this forum while looking into fishing on the exe. I've never caught a salmon before and have decided it's about time I tried. I'm a member of edaa already so easy to upgrade to a salmon ticket. Anyone got any pointers about where to start with the club stretches? Any advice much appreciated in advance.

Hi all,
I’ve just bought a small tackle collection that contains the little cardboard box in the image below - would any of you local guys be able to tell me anything about J.Webber & Sons who were tackle makers/dealers in Exeter and Newton Abbot?

And it seems they had there own range of green heart rods back in the day, looking at the forum sponsors back catalogue.

Thank you so much for taking the time and trouble to respond, and thanks to all other posters - this confirms that Webbers were retailers, rather than manufacturers, very similar to Murton’s of Newcastle, another firm that I’ve been looking at.
Thanks again all.
Phil
