  1. Excellent choice of music.
  2. I will be aboard Fine Gem for a week in June.
  3. Hi I have booked with Richardsons again for 2012, this will be my 3rd year. I do not have a loyalty card and have never been given one. Does this mean I will miss out on this bonus scheme?
  4. Waking up at 5.30am and having a lovely cup of tea I was ready to face the world, Time to put the fishing tackle up and hopefully catch a few before breakfast. I set up both my 13ft float rod and also an 11ft rod for feeder fishing. All set up and sitting at the stern I ran the float through and “Hey presto†first chuck I had a decent roach; this was followed by several more before the skimmers made an appearance. It was a lovely morning with clear sky’s although a little chilly it was great to be up before the river got busy. The others had now risen and Pete joined me while Ashy got the
  5. As we headed out of the boatyard it looked like something akin to the “Wacky Races†with hire craft jockeying for position seemingly in a rush to start their holiday. Why some feel a need to race everywhere beats me, if only they would slow down they could really see why the broads are so beautiful.

  9. Hi Neil, we will be down on the 25th so will miss you.
  10. Hi folks, well we had our week on Gold Gem and I must say it was excellent, not the most modern boat but very clean & tidy. With only 3 adults aboard we had plenty of space, the boat ran like a dream and was very easy to handle even for the novice among us. We enjoyed it so much that I have today booked the same boat again for June 2011. TIGHTLINES
