Alban, how very dare you claim Bill1 as your own. He had his own referendum and now lives in a semi lucid state known locally as Senility. He pinched a chip last week in the Ladybower Inn, bit the end off and spent 20 minutes trying to suck the potato out......still it did keep him quiet, for about 20 minutes 😎😎😎😎

Bill doesn't fish for Lancashire he resides in Cheshire unless he has totally committed to frog land. That would make him an international in my book fishing for the honor of France. He is credited with the following quotes:-

Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake.
A leader is a line of hope but often a disappointment.
In fishing stupidity is not a handicap.

It's still on, just the two main protagonists are no longer on the forum for various reasons.

How much is it costing this year, it might have been mentioned but I probably missed it, just need to know how many people I need to mug this evening to fund it

It's become more multi-platform these days Tommy. A lot of the banter about it takes place on Facebook.

Good morning Mr Lancy Red Neck Monkey Hanger (that good enough for starters)
Yes, all systems go for tomorrow. All boats booked. Double fugures of dodgems coming. Bacon Sandwiches due to arrive at 9am. Some people will be setting off soon to beat the traffic.
Cost Steve.
38 for everything. Catch and release 33.
That does include bacon sandwich in morning and sandwich and chips afterwards. 😊😊😊

Rich, what's your Fax number?
I want to send you a hand drawn picture of a 'squirting pud' discharging over a balding float tuber, with me and my boat partner in the corner holding aloft a trophy surrounded by buxom and willing wenches.

I think the buxom and willing wenches could be arranged.
