Float Review Revisited

Way back in 2013 at a Perry St match, the Tart brought on some pole floats made by Mike Smith for me to have a look at. I didn’t know Smithy back then and was quite flattered that anybody would actually care what I thought! Here’s what I said about them at the time, ‘I mentioned earlier that Brendon had brought me on

Sadborow – 28th May 2018

With it being a Bank Holiday, it would be rude not to fish somewhere so a few of us decided to have a knock up at Sadborow.
