A delightful day at Spitalfields yesterday, with the purchase from a gentleman hailing from the district of London known as Crystal Palace of a 1960's Allcock's Billy Lane Match Rod complete with integral swing tip, alternative butt section and opaque green rod stoppers.

Mr. Lane was fond of using a phrase often used in Arcadia when times are desperate, 'there's nowt like a few bream to cheer you up!'
