Lamson Warranty Repair

Back in February 2007 I went to New York to celebrate my wife’s birthday and bought myself a Lamson LP2 reel to accompany a Sage SLT that I bought at the same time. Happy birthday wife I said to myself as I waggled it around in the hotel – this caused an entirely different […]

First Permit of 2019 bought

Well it was not actually bought by me as it was a very nice surprise – a Christmas gift.

Fly Tying Box – I wish mine was made in Scotland by Barr n’ Stroud!

Kelvin account…
