Ah ten years is a long time - certainly long enough to see the funny side! Ultimately we all have fishing in common and that's far more important than our differences.

Hi Paul

Yes, we met irl in Holland back then :cool:

It was more that your reasons to take those two exams where somewhat different to what Mark wrote, and your feelings afterwards where of course different. I fully understand that!

Hi Chris Prior to starting the task, 55 feet of line (feet to fluff) is taken out. Then you pull in line until only a few feet are outside the tip, take the fluff in hand, and then you are ready to start the task.
