    deer skins for free

    Len, I've got a couple in the freezer at the moment as well and they could likely do with some company if nobody else wants them. I've got all the tanning stuff indoors and just need to get the final bits of meat off. Where are you based?

    Brew dog Beer

    Biggest trend at the moment is for unfiltered beers so they're more natural. Personally, I like a pint I can see through so I can guarantee a solid turnout in the morning!! Unlikely I would have thought. I've got a few Brewdog clone recipes and they are pretty much all natural gear, just gassed up for keg pour.

    Incorrect, as far as i'm aware - The dregs and drip trays went to form mild in an empty barrel given a shake and with the addition of a bar of settling soap. Left for two days and then tapped

    E.A rod licence

    I managed to do that when applying for a Canadian visa and paid 50 over the odds - Well chuffed

    That's an itch I need to scratch sooner rather than later. Tidy job

    Pastrami, do you like it?

    If you bake it, it's pastrami, if you boil it, it's salt beef. Salt beef needs to be thick cut but pastrami works best in wafer thin layers

    I had an epiphany the other night when my grandson walked in with his hockey kit - My 32" barrel browning fits lovely and it's as unobtrusive as you can get. Saves a fortune on breakdown cases https://www.sportsdirect.com/grays-gx3000-hockey-bag-863019?colcode=86301945

    This is what does my nut in - I'd love to have a go at chalk stream fishing and will probably lay the dough out one day, but it's frighteningly expensive when all you're going to get is a 6 inch catch and release brownie. I'm looking at Croatia and Bosnia maybe to bring the cost down. Interestingly, the cost of salmon fishing in Scotland seems to have plummeted though as most of the rivers are showing very few fish

    My local is Hanningfield in Essex and it's being kept afloat by Polish, Romanians, Lithuanians and Latvians ledgering with Powerbait or spinning from a boat. 8 fish ticket is £27 and with fish averaging 2-3lbs each that's not a bad return. I went out last Sunday and there was a match on, so suddenly fly fishermen everywhere - I have no idea where they go for the rest of the year. Essex is fixated with big, fat carp - Put your tent up, get your 3 rods out and go to sleep until your bite alarm goes off.
