In all seriousness though, I have heard that chap's name mentioned before. Did he used to work at a tackle shop Sherbert?

It's funny you mention his

It's funny you mention his name as it was only just on saturday that i went to see him myself. I got Jim to make up a custom made beach rod for my dad's 70th birthday comming up. He did a fantastic job and you get great value for money by getting one made up from scratch.

highly recommended but i tell you what make sure you aren't in a rush when you go there cos he can talk rods and reels all day long.hhaha
