Hiya Burnie pal, Aye shops are disappearing fast. Take the size of paisley,one of the biggest cities in Scotland,and it doesn’t even have a fishing tackle shop,there used to be a few good tackle and gun shops. Like pitchers sports,and fish and gun,all closed down years ago. I have to go to Johnstone or Renfrew, for a tackle shop. I used the Glasgow angling centre once, I got an alarm set for the pike( all the salmon men here go to the pike after the last day of salmon fishing) ,now Glasgow is only 9 mile from me,and they charged me £13 delivery. ,I could have got the 3 busses that I’d have needed,to get there,but I’d have got free,but there you go pal,and with little to no rain,the fellas are not out,thus no trade, terrible whole carry on all the gether mate. Tight Lines……. Jimmy. Ps I was down the river the other day with the wife a walk,and the workmen were there 2 years ago tending pipes (sewer) they cut down tons of trees to get into the new sewer and just left them to rot,plenty of good cured wood for a wood stove for winter if you’d a chainsaw.
