The move has unearthed much in the way of buried treasure - it is such a lovely feeling when it is found again, but it has also jogged my failing memory towards treasure that may be lost......or just waiting to be found!
This isn't any old piece of wood, oh no. This is a small piece of the original Redmire Pool dam rail no less - the original rail that the likes of BB, Dick Walker, Dick Kefford, Maurice Ingham, Bob Richards and the like would have leant against in the 1950's during the golden age of carp angling.
I knew I had it somewhere, but thought it lost - apologies for the poor picture by the way. A gift from a legendary Redmire angler quite a few years ago. It was found, preserved in the water just by the dam where it had fallen. This piece was found by me in a box and could easily have been lost again along with the two ancient Redmire oak leaves (from the Oaks pitch of course!).
