Since acquiring the first of my two Storm Kettles some ten years ago I have had to decide on countless occasions whether to pack a symmetrical, compact, convenient vacuum flask or to take an extra bag containing the Kelly Kettle, a bottle of water, waste paper, kindling, a cup, tea, milk and a spoon. ...

Bob Hornegold: Big Chub - Missing the Eights.

One of today's Forum posts included a link to the following article from Bob in February 2013. I thought it worth a re-run.

Don't Look Back in Anger - Martin Salter.

In the circles in which I move most people won’t be at all sorry to see the back of 2016. Losing the likes of David Bowie, Victoria Wood, Caroline Aherne, Terry Wogan, Leonard Cohen, Rick Parfitt and now George Michael was a salutary reminder that even those who have been a constant presence in our lives will eventually fade away....

Andy Loble: The Shetlands.

I am always up for a challenge when it comes to fishing. I have always had a thing for adrenaline sports and feel there should be no reason why you can’t add a bit of excitement to your fishing. So when I was asked if I fancied a trip to the Shetlands to target cod I was all ears, especially as it would be with my mate, Adam Cain, on his kayak and me in my 2.7m RIB with a 4hp 2 stroke motor....
