Reg Ironmonger's of Birmingham 5

Once upon a time in Arcadia and most notably on a Thursday, ladies and gentlemen who were thinking of going pike fishing would call in at Reg Ironmonger's shop on Hurst Street, just below the Hippodrome in the district of Birmingham 5.   There, Reg would give them expert advice and show off his range of pike rods and lures under the banner of 'Sound Tackle'.

Today in Arcadia should you be thinking of going pike fishing you are advised to call in at my stall in Spitalfields Antiques Market where on Thursdays only and between the hours of a half past seven and three o'clock I reminisce about legends of the ilk of Reg Ironmonger, drink tea and sell Vintage Fishing Tackle for the Soul, much of it built for those going pike fishing.
