    The benefit of loving, banjo's, books, firearms, bamboo fly rods, fly reels, hunting and kitchen knives, pipes et alia is that once in awhile you end up cross trading, i.e. something from one category for something in another. A friend has this lovely 50's ERA Hardy Hard Block Leather Case with a dark blue interior that would fit nothing over a 2 5/8" fly reel, heck even my 50's ERA St. George Jr. wouldn't fit in it. Like myself he's a pipe smoker so he stopped in today and told me he was looking for another pipe and we discussed his likes and dislikes etc. Ended up trading one of my pipes to him for the case and now my late 50's ERA Hardy Flyweight has a new home and it just eeks in. :toast:

    Of course, silly me, what was I thinking in my sleep deprived state pictures, or it didn't happen!

    Probably much closer to the guy who did not cook the chicken.:oops:
    I could only strive to be Gordon, but I think my heart would explode from the escalating blood pressure

    Can't recall, but on his UK versions of some of his shows, he get to use his real words...
    And I think he does, or used to smoke fag's.
