Roach fishing notes - compiled by Douglas Turner - PDF download

Post by Gobio Gobio »

Chaps, I have at last scanned and assembled a PDF to share here. I have deliberately created it to replicate the atmosphere of the original papers, not as a normal scanned images, these are more photographic. There are 38 pages in the PDF document which can be viewed in various ways of best downloaded for those like me that have a slow connection. The link takes you directly to the PDF but does not display it until opened or downloaded.

This is the original post made by Keston:

The only thing missing is that slightly musty smell of old papers like these.
