Six Counties, Two Auction Houses, Two Private Calls, a Mayfly Storm and Half a Gallon of Tea

Bought on Monday on a ten hour road trip which took in six counties, two auction houses, two private calls, a Mayfly storm and half a gallon of tea a collection of rods by Hardy Bros. and John Forrest of Thomas Street in London.  All of which I will have at the stall tomorrow for general perusal or impulsive purchase along with a cache of Japanned and Silmalloy fly boxes some of the former dating back to the Edwardian period.
