    I'm not even a football fan but I've watched most of the games in the tournament so far only because I want England to succeed. Last night I watched the game with my daughter in a local pub car park on a big screen and the atmosphere was unreal. What I can also say is I felt a very deep...

    Here's a 'modern' spey pattern The Mrs Grant from Kelson (1890) on a #3 Blue Heron. I hate tinselled chenille (wish I had the real thing - this is from Hareline - in an ideal world I'd have dyed the nasty white core) but really fancied doing the pattern. Dx

    Can someone please explain to me how these things work! I just can't get my head around this trading currency. I watched Branson and Michelle Moan telling the world it's the future but I can't get my head around it. There are other digital currencies but what is there value set against??
