    EIGHT QUID for a sausage dog 'n chips!

    You can be sure Binka wouldn't go to that show since he likes his sausages as it would have cost him a fortune !

    Maybe he will reply to this since it involves sausages......wier et'a Ste? !

    I walked over to the Trafford Centre for lunch. Seeing lots of people with bags from the show on the way over, I wasn't the only one.

    Way more choice, and as cheap or as expensive as you wanted as pretty much every restaurant chain you can think of was there.

    I took butties and what seemed to be the equivalent of 10 quids worth of coffee in my flask. there was a charity stall there called Anglers Against Cancer, as well as selling tee shirts and a couple of other things, the were selling mugs with their logo on that had tea or coffee in them for a fiver, If you bought one, you had free refills during the day. they were doing a good trade.

    I went the year before and apart from meeting Jeremy wade the show was a complete disappointment. All carp and nothing else. Went to the greys stand and well all **** I mean carp rods. No korum or any coarse gear. Might try if finances are good look at the big show. And be disappointed with that.
