Andrews of Arcadia: Writer-meets-Dealer, Lost Historian and Purveyor of Vintage Fishing Tackle for the Soul.
Wednesday 13 June 2012
Found at Kempton and purchased from one of the hardest working dealers in the country an original Efgeeco Pakaseat made from canvas and lightweight alloy tube, dating to the year of Arcadia 1967. It bears a sticker from The Council of Industrial Design's Design Centre in London, a register of products exhibiting 'good design' which had been introduced during The Festival of Britain. This Pakaseat is now residing in the section of my website affectionately known as 'Old Friends' for immediate sale to the angler who wishes to get lost by a reed fringed estate lake in the coming months.
