I used to fish the stainy opens every Wednesday between 91 and 94 when I was stationed at RAF Finningley. I learnt a lot as you would, you could be pegged between Alan Scotthorne and Tommy Pickering, I remember that was where I met a lot of the old MPB Team Dons side, including Lenny Squires and Belly. Most of the stuff I used in those days was supplied by George Longdon from Leeds.

We may have been in the same matches pal. 🤷‍♂️ It still fishes well in the winter John. And yes, Alan usually wins the league 🙄. Closely followed by Lee Kerry. The usual suspects. 🤣

We probably were !! Lenny took me under his wing, I bought my first Browning pole from his shop in Bawtry. Used to be squatt in gb in summer with caster on the hook, B & J after 1st of November iirc. Which team did you fish for in those days?

This stuff is a lot better than mystic. Unfortunately I can only use it on pleasure sessions nowadays. ☹️☹️

I probably only needed to buy one tub of leam in my 5 year 'career' and still probably had some left. Was surprised I didn't find it in the base of my seatbox I sold to @warrington63 as I found this hook box in there. Some of my old 'canal' hooks, though probably mislabelled and I don't recognise many of the patterns. No Mustad Bloodworm 26s but there was a label from a pack of those in there. Has been 20 years mind.
