Coventry Thursday Angling Society

Once upon a time in Arcadia, namely on a Thursday members of the  Coventry Thursday Angling Society would go fishing at Napton Brickyard.  The object of the Society was to provide angling amenities and facilities solely for Coventry and District Shopkeepers and their employees who were anglers and whose weekly half day off was Thursday.

Such benevolence would be rare to find these days but should your employer see fit to give you a half day holiday on any given Thursday you are welcome to visit me on my stall at Spitalfields Antiques Market where I sell Vintage Fishing Tackle for the Soul and drink tea in memory of the members of the Thursday until approximately 3pm.
