I used to sneak around Upton Warrens little nooks and crannies trying to trick the carp, even fishing the stock pool, then one day I watched Johnny bagging up off the sailing platforms near the cafe, a lifeless feature to fish on.
Years later I spoke to a few river anglers and it appeared that Mr Johnny Sherwood was something of a legend regarding river fishing, if only I spoke to him more then.
@Rick123 The John Dean Sticks are going for about £2 a float on eBay.
I don't know about the rest. I won't be selling the Billy Makin and John Dean Floats. @carphauler I've never used Canal Greys but looking forward to putting them into service.
