My Hubby and I have hobbies which are well matched, as you can see from the 2nd photo my husband and I were visiting a Flyfishing show in Newark on Trent about a month ago, a lady was sat on a stand with her husband who was demonstrating tying salmon flies and she was stitching to pass the time, I have passed many an hour stitching/knitting while my hubby was  fishing. I enjoy going to these shows as you never know what you will find which will be interchangeable, pike flies seem to be very popular and one chap was tying them with beading wire and didn't know where to get more so I was able to tell him where to obtain more, over the years I have bought all sorts and my hubby is always interested in my threads for tying flies especially the sparkly  ones. The other photo is me with Paul young he is an Actor who presents alot of Fishing programs that we watch so I thought I would be cheeky and get my photo taken with him.
