Wimbledon Car Boot Sale
A dark, cold but dry morning at a Wimbledon Car Boot Sale full of house clearance vans but empty of Vintage Fishing Tackle for the Soul. All I managed to buy was my ticket in and a cup of tea. The small consolation of a bag of reels picked up after a call on the way home that included a 2 1/2 inch J.W Young Pattern No. 1A Trout Fly Reel made for Mr. Herbert Hatton's establishment in Hereford.
