Yesterday I came home from work to find a mysterious package waiting on me. On opening it I found it to be a gorgeous book with an inscription in the front cover.
This was an unexpected gift from a gentleman who I have been giving advice to about making fishing floats over the internet and who Im now honoured to call a friend although we have never met.
Im very humbled at receiving such a present from Richard, for simply doing something I enjoy doing which is passing on tips & advice to other amateur float makers or fishermen interested in making their own floats with nothing asked or expected in return, a truly wonderful gesture and something I will cherish.
On a slightly lesser note, I have to say its more than I can say about some people who have suckered me for float making information purely for their own gain & reward to line their own pockets without even as much as a single float in return, that wont be repeated anytime soon that Im positive of!!
Not to end on a sour note
A very generous gift and I've said in my email thank you but this deserves a Blog Thank You.
