That's interesting . . .

As we are hoping to get up there this seeason.

When you say the anchorage at the head isn't very good, what exactly is wrong with it? Did you find any good anchorages?

Fishy indeed

This is one of these devices we would love to believe in, but there are too many questions and not enough answers. The YBW forums are very big, with a lot of very experienced contributors -...
