A very high quality catalogue this one, 73mm x24mm with a card cover and pages of only a little lighter gauge. It has 48 pages of fishing articles and advice followed by 53 pages of tackle (and 4 pages of air guns). You couldn't just pick this up for free at your local tackle shop, you had to fork out 25p, 5 shillings still to many then. There is value in it though -
Starting with the Fishing section -

Next the Tackle section -
Here are the Milbro Beachcasters - from left to right Cutlasses, Sabres, Scimitars and Surfmaster. I have the three piece, reverse taper Cutlass, Bigaal was asking about the Cutlass with the bare metal butt. As you can see the Terry Carrolls were yet to make an appearance.

Here you are, Tim. Enjoy :-Greetings BP,
If it wasn't too much trouble for you, could you please photograph that "Congers of Scrabster" article by Ted Simons and upload it on here in it's entirety please, as I really like reading about them and really enjoy old sea fishing tales as well. It would be greatly appreciated.
Ah that's just the ticket BP, many thanks for taking the time to do that, I really appreciate it, thank you very much! :thumbsup:
