I am lost in a nostalgic memory from days of youth – where the fishes were far bigger in my dreams than in reality. Following exciting hours at the creeks and lakes of Nordmarka, only occasionally a trout, pike or perch ended up in my creel.
In the transition period of the sixties, splitcane rods still prevailed, glass-fiber rapidly evolved and carbon/Kevlar was not an issue. The catalogues from Hardy enlightened my dreams, but such expensive gears were out of reach. “Napp & Nytt” from ABU and “Råd & Redskap” from Hørgård were frequently consulted and formed my source of equipment.
If you have for sale a Hardy Altex No. 1 in good working condition, with box and spare spool, and/or ABU Mark 5 worming rod, please send me an email (se also link from my front page)
