Steve,

 

I've got some stuff that I can bring including a fishing chair and maybe some luggage that I no longer use. I also have a book, "Still Hooked", by Terry Theobald. It is in pristine condition and signed by the author.

 

I'll have another look and see what else I can find.

 

Steve C.

 

Add to the above - a set of Fox Digital Scales (will weigh up to 66lb)

I'll have a dig around in my garage. It won't be collectible but it may be worth a few quid to someone 👍

I think if I were to bid on a book it would be a float fishing book. Maybe one that covered shotting patterns, different techniques etc. I am a big fan of float fishing, particularly on rivers but don't really own any books relating to it as I simply have got round to getting any and I imagine most modern books will talk mainly about float fishing for carp on heavier methods. I did get one from Anderoo once as part of a bundle he kindly sent me but cant for the life of me think where I have put it. Many of the other books he sent me were passed on to those who needed them as they were starting out fishing. 


The complete book of float fishing by Allan Haines is good.

Different floats for different folks!
