I think it's appropriate to put this in the casting threads.

With sadness it's the announcement of the passing of Peter Anderson.

Peter was a big name in game angling when I first started. Think I had a Milbro spinning rod with his name on it.
RIP Peter.

The man whom could teach casting with a very few words.
Had the pleasure of fishing with him a lot of times, got my double handed technique almost perfect in about 20 minutes!
He held records in almost every aspect of casting, including bait casting, a genuine casting legend.
He had a profound impact on my casting abilities
RIP Peter.

On the Dave Allen show, imagine casting a cigarette out of someone's mouth on tv today.

10 times spey casting world champion and one of, if not the first to analyse the cast in technical terms, his teaching of fulcrums and levers is the casting language we use today.

Did he not in later life promote the Aquarius range of rods built by Martin Cloke on, I believe, Harrison LORHIC blanks.

He always reminds me of a VHS tape I had when I was a wee lad just learning to fly fish. One of Paul Youngs first videos .....

That was enjoyable, doesn't Paul Young look, errr young!
Brought back memories of wax jackets and rubber thigh waders.

I've gone through 2 pairs of stockingfoot waders in the last 5 years, the second pair only lasted 2 outings.
So I had my old Dunlop pvc thigh waders on the other day which are still going strong after 30+ years !

Proof that discos were invented in the Highlands, it didn't look it but that was actually all young people in their 20's!

The Kelly Kettle scene reminded me of lunch on the shores of lough Beltra filling up from the waters.

Many years ago all waders and wellingtons were black and they lasted for ages. These days you will find It very difficult to get black waders or black wellingtons. If you are not wearing olive waders then you are not in fashion. A friend of mine, (the late Peter MacKenzie-Philps) he told me a very long time ago, (1970's) that the reason as to why black waders last so long, it is because black wellingtons and waders are not effected by UV light where olive waders etc won't last a year if left in sunlight. This is something that I have always remembered therefore as I could not care less about being in fashion, if I can't get black then all of my boots when not in use, they are kept in total darkness and I never have a problem with them. They will wear out through time of course but I always get my monies worth out of them before that happens. The ones that I am using just now when fishing or doing loch maintenance, ( Greys Waist waders) they are kept up at the loch in the boatshed. Whenever the doors are shut which is most of the time, unless wearing them they are in total darkness. These are now into their 4th year and look like lasting for a very long time yet.
