The two writers I would recommend to you are Daniel Skupien 1 and Simon Shimomura 2 and I would whole-heartedly commend you buy their beautiful, most informative books. I have all 3 in my armoury of useful reading material about ABU. Briefly I have noticed many changes in the numbering systems from my earliest Records, where often no numbers were engraved at all, through to the current reels. Of most interest to me is the period from the 50’s to the 80’s. I guess the Borgrstom family had no concept at all of how significant ABU would become over the next 5 decades and little thought was given to inventory control, numbering models etc as they concentration was on just making the best! Starting with the Ambassadeurs, notably the Record Ambassadeur , they did not have any numbering system employed at all. I am informed that the serializing process did not begin until the Record name from the Ambassadeurs whence they were named ABU Ambassadeur only. So then, both the Record Ambassadeur and wide spool version released just a year or so later, had numberless smooth reel seats. When ABU did start numbering, it was a serialized form.
The contract stipulated that a four-cylinder Ford-based F2 engine would be developed as proof of concept see the FVA above and that a pure Cosworth V8 would be built based on this. Although originally designed for Formula One, the engine has been modified to be used in a range of categories. During the s, it was common for almost the entire field with the notable exception of Ferrari to use one of these engines — this at a time when independent wealthy individuals could buy exactly the same engine off the shelf that was also being used by McLaren et al.
It won a record World Championship races, the last being Detroit in , powering a Tyrrell driven by Michele Alboreto.
Aug 26, · That page appears to be incomplete; it omits the G-prefix numbers that were used on composite rods – i.e. whole cane/split cane, or whole cane/greenheart. I forget which website has the full list, but should anyone have a G-prefix rod these can also be dated, given the correct reference table.

Fly fishing[ edit ] Trading card of the Ustonson company, an early firm specializing in fishing rods, and holder of a Royal Warrant from the s The art of fly fishing took a great leap forward after the English Civil War , where a newly found interest in the activity left its mark on the many books and treatises that were written on the subject at the time.
The renowned officer in the Parliamentary army , Robert Venables , published in The Experienced Angler, or Angling improved, being a general discourse of angling, imparting many of the aptest ways and choicest experiments for the taking of most sorts of fish in pond or river. It was a celebration of the art and spirit of fishing in prose and verse; six verses were quoted from John Dennys ‘s earlier work. A second part to the book was added by Walton’s friend Charles Cotton. Running rings began to appear along the fishing rods, which gave anglers greater control over the cast line.
Spey casting is a traditional Scottish style of fly casting which utilizes long two-handed rods. Dating back to the 18th century, the original rods from the River Spey measured 16 to 20 feet long. However, modern Spey rods now range from 16 to 11 feet with an average around 13 feet or so.
Halliday must have been an M. Master of Arts and S. F Senior Chaplain to the Forces. The only clue I can find to explain the Admiralty’s retention of masts and yards without sails is here: The Royal Navy decided to switch to the double-expansion engine in , and by they were widespread. However, this development alone was not enough to herald the end of the mast.
Whether this was due to a conservative desire to retain sails, or was a rational response to the operational and strategic situation, is a matter of debate. A steam-only fleet would require a network of coaling stations worldwide, which would need to be fortified at great expense to stop them falling into enemy hands.
Just as significantly, because of unsolved problems with the technology of the boilers which provided steam for the engines, the performance of double-expansion engines was rarely as good in practice as it was in theory

Questions about Antique Reels: Brands and Companies Q1: Many of the questions received about older reels concern American level winding baitcasting reels mass-produced from the s to the s. The vast majority of the mass-produced baitcasting reels and fly reels, too, for that matter made by the major tackle companies from the s to the s can still be found easily at flea markets and yard sales. Therefore, only a small fraction of these reels have significant collector value.
In general, only the highest quality reels for example, a few made with nickel silver or reels in mint condition command prices in the higher end of that range. Most are more valuable for fishing than as collectibles. Sometimes, a mint reel with its box and papers may attract higher prices. The major tackle companies frequently made certain models for two decades or more.
The precise dating of such models is often difficult without knowledge of various structural details. Listed below are some of the baitcasters found most commonly by collectors. The older models usually were made with nickel-plated brass, but after World War II, aluminum quickly became more widely used. Pflueger and Shakespeare reels are generally more popular with collectors than the other mass-produced reels, but most of their products remain in the category discussed here.
I washed and dried it and it will give me some more years of service even if it is a little faded. A filleting knife from an Aberdeen fish house was in there too and I can bring it back to good condition with a little elbow grease. These knives were wonderfully flexible and easy to sharpen so it will come in useful later this year when the sea fishing picks up and I have some Mackerel and Pollock to fillet. Then there was a small bag containing my long lost repair kit for rods.

If you walk into any angling shop, the world over, there will be a sea of mass-produced carbon-fibre fishing rods, racks and racks of them, light-weight, space-age, efficient, and yet, inevitably, soulless. However, unbeknown to many, there are still in existence, and still being crafted, the natural version; the split cane rod, whittled from bamboo, Tonkin cane, which would have been the only rod, fifty years ago. Recently, there has been somewhat of a revival in high quality cane fishing rods, patiently and skilfully crafted by hand from seasoned bamboo.
Many believe that the whole fishing experience is enhanced when using a tool made from natural materials, looking totally at home on the river bank — in fact, it is not unheard of to have a bird cheekily perch upon the end! A simple, wholesome and humble invention, the timeless fishing rod has been in existence since time immemorial, ever since man fashioned a stick to help him catch fish, and the soulful character of a classic split cane rod is thought by many a fisherman to be the perfect trusted companion to share their peaceful solitude of the riverbank.
Edward Barder, of The Edward Barder Rod Company, has kindly allowed us into his workshop to discuss how he got started in his craft, what inspires him, what makes a split cane rod so special, how he creates a new rod and his thoughts on crafts in general.

With that said, there are a few things to consider when purchasing your next Spey rod. To begin with, how big are the fish you intent to chase? A seven weight will easily handle steelhead in the 8 to 14 pound range. Matched with the proper line, a seven can handle anything from floating lines to sink-tips. On many Canadian summer rivers and most winter rivers in the Northwest, hooking a 15 to 20 pound fish is an everyday reality. Furthermore, if your faced with fishing conditions that require throwing heavy sink-tips and big flies, an eight or nine makes it easier.
On the other hand, if you plan on fishing one salt summer steelhead where the average fish is 5 to 7 pounds, a six weight would be more applicable.
Risk-aware consensual kink Aside from the general advice related to safe sex , BDSM sessions often require a wider array of safety precautions than vanilla sex sexual behaviour without BDSM elements. In practice, pick-up scenes at clubs or parties may sometimes be low in negotiation much as pick-up sex from singles bars may not involve much negotiation or disclosure.
These negotiations concern the interests and fantasies of each partner and establish a framework of both acceptable and unacceptable activities.

Prince Charles to meet The Hobbit director 22 Oct There are around Royal Warrant-holders, ranging from jam-makers to bus companies, tailors and wine merchants. The warrant — originally a Royal Charter, introduced by Henry II in — can be awarded by the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh or the Prince of Wales, and is only bestowed upon businesses that have supplied the Royal household for five years or more. Like Hardy and Greys, Twinings, which has held the Royal Warrant since supplying tea to Queen Victoria in , has had a difficult few years.
In , it announced nearly redundancies, and last year closed its North Shields factory. Similarly, Storck, the German owner of warrant-holder Bendicks, announced job losses and the closure of its Winchester factory last year. A recent study by the brand design agency Coley Porter Bell showed that of adults surveyed, 42 per cent were indifferent to Royal Warrants; 42 per cent said they were unimportant; and just 13 per cent thought they made a difference.
At Hardy and Greys, meanwhile, Maudslay insists that the imminent sale does not signal the end for the royal fishing supplier — or its Royal Warrant.
