Wow! What an amazing collection. They won't be appearing at any car boot sales. Stolen to order.....overseas buyers perhaps?

Would agree Anthony - having been done 3 times myself I hope Mr Barder is insured to the hilt although a lot of this is irreplaceable.

That list is incredible, some of the most expensive tackle anywhere, begs the question why did he need all that?
