    Armstrong at Bushmoot 2014 - photo evidence of a superb and educational time!

    Good idea George about starting a thread showing all the activities covered on the starter course. We split into the smaller groups and I am sure plenty of photos were taken, it would be good if you start a thread and put a call out to all to see what photos are out there! We didn't take...

    Another leather bag, and a question

    Nice bag. I second Dreadhead, I have been using veg oil, olive oil to be precise, finishing off with wax which seals it in. Neatsfoot I often find too pungent. James
