Well its been a while now gents since Ray had his terrible accident but Im glad to say the old boy is now back to his absolute best, he told me he has a little way to go with his hands still but he is now more than capable of restoring the old Cardinals and the odd Mitchell and any broken feet on reels, he has just done this little chap for me which was in such poor shape but now looks a million dollars realy.

Im sure like me we are glad to see him back because he has been through the mill since his accident, even had two cataract ops to go with all the suffering from his burns. Any road hopefully he will try and attend the next Redditch show and be on our table again in November. :Ok: :Ok:

Here is the before and after pictures of the reel

Wow! What a transformation, but more importantly still, I'm so pleased to hear that Ray is so recovered. Nice job, Ray!

Yes Nobby and Dave, its good to have him back laughing and joking on the end of the phone, for so long he couldn't even hold one so its great he is back to somewhere near what he was before his accident. Be nice to get him back on the bank as well catching those lovely old Barbel like this one he had a couple of years ago, I will let Ray tell you the story on this one If he can type.

Wonderful news BL please pass on my best wishes to Ray for his continued recovery. Though the transformation of your reel would clearly show he is on top form - what a beauty 👍 And what a cracking barbel!

I'm hoping that family matters don't get in the way of me attending the next Redditch VTF it would be nice to see you both :Hat:

Hello everyone
Ray has very recently put my formerly trusty Cardinal 54 back into action after the clutch packed in and the reel went into permanent freespool.
I can't say how grateful I am - what a star he is.
I wish him all the best for the future.
