    Default Accumulation.

    Having had a little tidy up and dust down I have acculated:
    95 books.
    86 DVDs.
    1 data CD.

    All fishing related.
    What long cold winters we have had.

    Now then, how to put it all to good use?

    So has anyone else built up a collection over the last few years?

    Ron's probably read them all on his way to S.A or Auz.

    I have had some naff dvds/vids on fishing that I have given away plus the usual books such as encyclopedia of fishing, by everyone unknown in the fishing world.

    Truthfully.... well over a thousand books, fishing, history, shrubs/trees/conifers (our business), well over two hundred videos and dvds, fishing, old comedy (3 stooges, Frank Randle etc), fishing and trade magazines galore. And still buying from charity shops/ebay.

    The thing is i'm not a HOARDER, my office, (back bedroom), is piled high, but I can still find what I need.

    Wobbly Face (As Per Ed)..." I have had some naff dvds/vids on fishing",

    I know what you mean, some are so bad that they become enjoyable, one match angler is so boring I have thought of recommending his dvds to insomnia clinics.
    Some people are so poor, that all they have is money
