I am now mobile!

I passed my driving test today. I am now mobile- a full force attack of the Kelvin shall be happening, not just my usual haunts but some of the other tributaries as well.

    Really great to hear that you are mobile now. Own car does give you few options I think.

    Do you promise to wear chest waders while driving?

    It is like the end of an era 🙁

    Well done Alisair,
    4 piece rod for next season on the cards then. Used to keep my 4 piece rod in my truck when running down to Lancashire. Parked up go and do a bit of fishing pick up a curry watch a bit of TV lying in my bunk then off to sleep. Oh good times and got payed for it aswell.Rod,waders and rest of gear packed nicely into cab storage. Car has always got my gear in it.

    Getting the car of your wife could your only thing that may hold you back.
