Why do I have so many? Simple really. I worked for Kodak in the Distribution - Southern Region Warehouse, during the eighties, and the ability to obtain, process paid, Kodachrome, slide film, at a very competitive(?) price, was a brilliant spin-off.
Looking back through these snap shots has been an incredible insight into the crazy journey that my angling has taken me on. There are so many images of fish of which I have absolutely no idea where, or when, they were taken? This is the very opposite to modern, digital image capture, where date, time, camera model and umpteen other statistics are recorded as standard. If I'm lucky there might be a hand written note to accompany a slide? One other nice distraction has been seeing the faces of some very old mates, many of whom I've not seen since leaving Hertfordshire in 1993.
