Lovely Chubbly

Got another float finished off over the weekend for a personal friend who asked me to make him a chubber for doing a spot of chub fishing in the forth coming months as he has packed his fly rod away for another season and turned his attentions to the chub.

The name on the reel I know will annoy the hell out of him hence posted on a Major as we have a bit of Army & RAF rivalry , RAF dont you just love them!


  1. I pissed off my CO enormously when I married and the majority of the honour guard were RAF and to compound it, my Best Man was RAF too!

    I followed my father's footsteps and joined the Army. If my son wishes to serve his country, I hope he has the good sense to join the RAF!

    The only thing that concerned me about the RAF was prejudice...

    Air Chief Marshal's daughter comes into his study and says, 'Daddy, I'm going to marry a black navigator...'

    'A NAVIGATOR!' he thundered.

  2. I did the opposite Hippo, my dad was RAF and I know he would have liked one of his 3 sons to follow suit, we all joined the army, Older brother was TA only, I did 24 years and my younger brother is currently on extended service, I know he was proud of us all but I think he would have liked one of us to follow in his footsteps. Many a night with a glass of whisky in hand he would tell us of his exploits and what he got up to, in his words "I joined when they were needing them not feeding them"...lol
