[14/07/2019] Fernilee Spinning Competition

Review of the Fernilee Spinning Competition

More/Less Information ...

As you will all be aware, today the Fernilee Spinning Competition took place.

This ever popular comp was fiercely contested and with only one prize available!!

The tension at the start of the competition was palpable, a few shaky hands, sweaty palms, nervous attempt`s to tackle up.

Spinners of all shape`s and sizes were proudly whisked out of there new packaging, a few sideways glances, then quickly returned to whence they came.

No one person prepared to show their hand, some confident with their choice and just one rod.

Others with two rods, carefully positioned so you could not quite, catch site of the end tackle.

Whilst all the time shaking hands, being friendly, passing the time of day.

Mmm nice rod, nice reel, whats that spinner? to quickly find a Gareth Kitchen in your face "you put your rod over there with mine Dad" .

All that before anyone has wet a line!!

The gamblers amongst us, those " In the know " " Tap the nose, wink, wink " I think quietly knew, the tell tale signs a certain give away.

A certain confidence not overly, yet enough.

A swagger to his step again hardly perceptible! but to the practised eye.

I`m sure a couple of us spotted him as soon a he turned up.

You know what I`m going to say,


All seen them, fished all their lives, know`s one end of a rod from the other, can smell a fish from a mile away, and there always someone`s DAD!!

You know the sort " You don`t mind if my dad has a go do you ", no of course not, because the penny has not dropped yet.

Still £100,000.00 first prize and a Mug.

Well done Jonathan Kitchen.

PS the cheque is in the post!
