    Bruised pigeon breast

    To be honest, I'd just cut the shot channels out with a bit to spare. If your planning on eating a fair amount of game - which i'm guessing you are by the sound of it - then its going to be best if you do all you can to minimise your contact with lead. Wood Pigion is delicious - and I dont like to see food go to waste - but theres no point in placing yourself in the way of harm.

    Leather Boots

    Defender folding seats

    I think this will end up being the solution

    Defender folding seats

    Hi All, I understand that this is probably an idiotic question that has an exceptionally simple answer - but - how do I get the folding seats in the back of my 1996 defender to stay so that they are folded up? Many thanks,

    Zeiss Jenna binoculars

    Just for a bit of background - Carl Zeiss Jenna was the arm of Zeiss that the Soviet Union took as part of their reperations following the end of WW2, so, while mostly built on solid designs, they tend to be somewhat conservitive and the build quality not always fantastic. That said, I cant see how you could go wrong for £30 - just watch out for fungus, especially if they have been stored in a leather case

    Chas Bowerman Birmingham

    It does seem quite an odd configuration - intresting though. How easy is it to shoot?

    Chas Bowerman Birmingham

    Sounds facinating and (without knowing too much) in line with the trends / eccentricities of late Victorian / early Edwardian gun making Do you have any photos you could share?

    Sets in carbon rod - possible?

    I was wondering today if this was possible? I take care to hang up the couple of splitcane rods I have from hooks on the wall - but my carbon rods are normaly just propped up in a corner - so is there any chance of them developing a set after a lengthy period of non use? Many thanks

    Hunting priest

    To add to that though, in the middle ages, high ranking members of the church were also members of the aristocracy, and as such were expected to appear on the battlefield with the provision thay they would not draw blood. To sidestep this inconvenience they used mace's, clubs, and other blunt impact wepons to send their foe's on to a better place.

    Repairing line guides

    Ah, thanks for that. It you look at the photo of the bottom section, you can see the first eye is whipped on in the same colour silk at the tip. It has a keeper ring up by the top of the handle, whipped on with red silk either side, I think you can see it in a couple of the photos. Is this the position you were talking about, or do you mean the other end of thr handle?

    The only thing I'm not totly keen on with mine is where the previous owner has tried to rub down the black finish to the base metal. It fishes great though, especially since it came back from a service with Gary Mills

    Thanks for sharing that I've been reading about Aerial reels. I've currently looking at buying one of the Fred Crouch copies / versions, but I'm quite happy with the Allcocks badged Youngs Trudex I have for the moment

    Fascinating From what I've read it sounds like a great sort of shop I dont suppose as a one time customer you can shead any light on the models available? This one says Firecrest on it, but I've also seen Greencrests and Goldcrests on the internet - some sort of hierarchy of ranges perhaps? Or for diffrent names for game / coarse / sea / etc?
