A heartfelt thank-you to all the 42 stallholders, fishing tackle enthusiasts, our hosts at the Abbey Stadium and sponsor Mr. Neil Freeman of Angling Auctions who helped to make yesterday's National Vintage Fishing Tackle Fair such an enjoyable day for all concerned.  Mr. Samuel Guyatt reported that over one hundred gallons of tea were drunk by the assembled crowds.  Gratitude is owed to The Times Daily Universal Register, Caught by the River and contributors to the Secret Swim for their press notices and word of mouth which brought a lot of new faces to the door.  The next National Vintage Fishing Tackle Fair will take place on Sunday 20th November 2011 and in order not to get lost you are advised that it will be at a new venue, the Kingsley Sports Centre in the district of Woodrow in Redditch.  The postal code is B98 7UH.
