The 'pin is set up to be used with a right hand wind and most vintage centrepins were manufactured to be used in this way.

Also the suggestion that tackle options was limited is correct as I'm certain the Wallis cast significantly predates the invention of Illingworth's Threadline reel. The watercolours are so evocative of the British countryside and its wildlife and delight fishermen and non fishermen alike. Team Crabtree have almost re-invented the wheel with this insightful, beautifully written and delightfully illustrated modern masterpiece.

Each time I read it I was taken back to a time when, as a small boy who didn't have the means to take himself fishing, my passion for fishing was mostly lived out through my imagination and the written words of others.I bought Fishing with Mr Crabtree in all waters to replace a copy that I had given to me as a boy, and this copy was in excellent condition.
