Well, I just strained off last July's Blackcurrant Gin.
First time I've tried that variant. I'd thoroughly recommend it to anyone.
A lot less 'blackcurranty' than expected and actually rather nicely spicey. Naturally empirical trials are ongoing....see you all on Thursday:thumb::lol:
I am really struggling to get to grips with this, having spent the best part of 40 years, designing and creating both bespoke and single custom made pieces of jewellery, (customer requests and stock pieces) Being basically shut down is becoming an issue (only the 1st week!!!) I have the...

Silver Grey 2/0
This is the Kelson pattern from Cholmondley Pennell (1885) - definitely my favourite version (possibly aside from the version with summer duck sides and no JC) - the silver pheasant much more appropriate to the silvery character than the usual tippet.

Amongst all the usual suspects was this. I haven't a clue what it's called but it's rather lovely.
Anyone know please?
With squads being announced in the next few days its time to Kick Off.
So here it is again, the 6 Nations thread.
As usual discuss, pull legs, get some banter going, highlight good play (and reffing) but most importantly enjoy. :)
There I'm not dead - first fly since 20 May due to moving and trying to turn this depressing season round - more rust than an old nail - this is the Teviotside, for some reason the claret pigs wool and hackle look much brighter than they are - probably down to the dodgy camera (which isn't my...
