Here we have a letter written by the late Dick Walker giving advice on the process of checking a test curve of a rod with a small diagram and the technique of tying strands from a nylon rope onto white painted hooks to produce translucent fly bodies…always a forward thinking angler. Dick Walker goes onto to give advice on personal issues possibly in relation to walking out on your wife and all done with a stinking cold!
Finally he finishes on a poem! Matt Hayes, I think you need to step up your game a bit!
Love the letter. I have really enjoyed your swim, thank you. Still chuckling now over the fruit-cake comment
