From Under Pall Mall

Found yesterday Under Pall Mall amongst the Farlows Shop Archive, scrupulously kept by the shop's Manager of Fishing Mr. Max Sardi, two old reference books used by former Farlows' men, the 1904 Salmon Flies book, full of Edwardian patterns and the 1929 Shop Reference Book, an annotated 1929 Farlows Catalogue complete with the piece of string from which it hung behind the counter.   Next Wednesday I shall be stalling out in Farlows between the hours of 9am and 6pm and tea will be drunk Trawlerman Style in honour of all those who have served in the shop and continue to do so.  You are invited to join us.
