Woodfields of Christchurch

Once upon a time in Arcadia, upon a Thursday in the first week of the new fishing season, ladies and gentlemen would take the London to Bournemouth train and stop off at Christchurch ready to fish with the ghost of Wallis and others on the banks of the Hampshire Avon.  Once there, and having refreshed themselves with ale they would call in at Woodfields Tackle where for a small price one could obtain 'Happy Fishing'.

In this the first week of the new fishing season should you wish to obtain some 'Happy Fishing' it is recommended that you visit me at my stall in Spitalfields Antiques Market on Commercial Street in the district of London E1 where between the hours of 8am and 3pm I sell Vintage Fishing Tackle for the Soul and talk incessantly over endless cups of tea about the ghost of Wallis and others.   Your good company is most welcome and afterwards you may refresh yourself with ale in the nearby Golden Heart.
