Ned Henderson

Ned was a  friend, collaborator and a competitor of  George Snaith, they were often seen searching the hedgerows for suitable shanks. Ned’s favourite subjects for his sticks fish but he could also make a good plain stick. Unfortunately when he died his collection of sticks was dispersed among  relatives and friends, however this year (2007) I was approached by one of his descendents to join a head and shank together and he brought me two sticks which  I photographed  and  am including them in the Gallery
