Thought i would do another one of these this year.

The first letter of each answer is needed to spell out the festive phrase.

Answers will be in a random order and the winner is the first person to post:

All correct answers, in the right order and spell out the festive phrase, as timed by their post. (as many goes as you want)

Tactics are everything, i will announce the winner as a post when i pop in and check the thread.

1) Another name for a 'top and bottom' float.

2) A design of tip featured in some river float rods.

3) Started at the end, but more on the side in recent years.

4) 'The Royalty' is how which area of the River Avon is sometimes known.

5) Surname of Billy, a famous name in the world of angling.

6) Colour of the original preston no'6 slip elastic.

7) Chilly origin of the Char.

8) Nightlight indicator.

9) Weir on the Trent in between Charles I and Charles II.

10) Stretch of the Middle Severn, between Arley and Hampton Loade.

11) Surname of a famous fishing family, across numerous angling disciplines and in the origins of a bait company.

12) Strong metal sometimes used in pole float stems.

13) Type of knot.

14) Type of chemical, attractive to fish.

Away we go.....

And a Happy Christmas to you too.

I haven't worked out the only missing answer to give the second H yet though, so can't list all the answers.

I'd guess Happy Christmas as well, since it has a Y in it I believe...

Berry Christmas?
