Interview with Charlyfarly2

Tuesday, October 29th, 2013

If you are into fishing, barbel, chub and YouTube, then no doubt you will have already come across the Charlyfarly2 YouTube channel. I have been subscribed to this for quite a while, I love logging in and seeing that a new video has been uploaded. I do confess to sometimes skimming through the video to see when a barbel screams off along the river!

Tom is the man behind the alias, I contacted him so I could find out more about him and his fishing.

The versatility of the design is proven by the way that many other tackle companies have created similar products. There are now magnetic boxes in the tackle ranges from most popular manufacturers.
