An evening with Steve Rodwell
There was plenty of banter. We got side-tracked here and there with the mysteries of piles and a certain well-known personage's wedding tackle trick - which I wouldn't recommend anyone trying after a few shandies.
There were also one or two touches of brilliance, little theories and snippets which made sense when you stopped to think about them.
Pike fishing's all the richer for people like Rodders, whose love of the game shines on despite the decline we've all experienced in recent seasons. Truly a top notch evening.
Next month, Big Ash (as opposed to Young Ash and Little Ash...) has lined up something completely different, as John Cleese used to say. Zandavan, aka zander and eel nut Barry McConnell, will be on the oche.
It'll be at the Burt on Wednesday, December 19 (7.30pm). Get you along, buh.
