Mitchell match? Or 300? great reels having read the full post, PRS landlords should provide a one acre lake beside every development and let the kids explore, fish, sail make rafts meet kids from other neighbourhoods that come to the pond to play……like my childhood
A Mitchell reel. Lovely.
All good points. PRS developers need to take more responsibility, but central government must legislate to make that happen (and start building social housing again!)
Milbro Match rod and Mitchell 300 or possibly 410 as it has the torpedo handle ?
I had pretty much the same outfit. Happy days. We had comparatively little but we had freedom. The 70’s was tough economically but there was a great sense of community and people had time for each other. We felt we knew virtually everyone in our town.
Similarly, I spent a very happy 1960’s in council housing in Northants. They were halcyon days.
Lovely picture of a Mitchell 300 best reel you could buy and they are still the best.
Missing the velvet orange number Steve!
WOW Steve is this you? Dressed for a party even then!
Really pleased to see we have industry characters like Steve championing one of the largest social challenges of the time. Power to your baton !
I was a very keen fisherman when I was young – many happy days on the lake/reservoir and also match fishing on the Lea at Broxbourne; Thames and various Norfolk rivers/streams…! Tell me Steve, how do you find the time these days? 😉
Awww so sweet!
Mitchell 300a ? Great reel
personally remember the Mitchell 330 is better! haha
