Wow you have done it again my friend, it's great to see these things being made.
I'm just going to watch it again and probably again and again.
Many thanks for your efforts, I know that there is a lot of work involved.
Kind regards Roy

Hi Tracey,

I don't know quite how to respond to that my friend. There are many Mitchell Mates who have contributed more than anyone knows. Unfortunately (or some believe fortunately) I chose to be exposed thus appearing to be something I'm not. Because of people like Mike Read as my best example, who believed in me enough to invest (a lot) in the foundation of the museum website does not mean I deserve anything more than a thank you from a mate.

This is not modesty as Roy said but the way I really feel. I could tell you about many others who have been involved with fishing history a lot longer than me. Professional authors, publishers, other websites, groups and so forth make me look small and I chose to believe that.

Kind Regards,
Wallace

Wallace,
Thanks very much for preserving this bit of history. As a Conolon collector, I am very interested in this piece. How is it that you came by with it?
Thanks again!
Kevin

Hi Kevin,

Thank you for your kind words. Please see Articles for all the information and background on these films. The NARMCO article is pre-Conolon history I'm sure you'll like.

Kind Regards,
Wallace
