How to Catch Sea Trout

A day of reflection at Spitalfields yesterday after the ceremonial opening of the Suitcase belonging to a Gentleman had occurred shortly after 08:00hrs to a respectful crowd.  The contents of the suitcase revealed a wealth of Vintage Fishing Tackle for the Soul much of it homemade in the years immediately Post-War.  Homemade by a proud man of some artistry on cold winter evenings at the kitchen table armed with a pair of tweezers, a magnifier and a whisky glass.
