It's been a while since we updated you on our pick pocket finds...but fret not, we are back with this little gem, found in the pocket of a Barbour. A fishing permit for the Aberchalder Estate in Scotland.
The handwriting is a little hard to decipher, but I think the date read 09/09/87!
The Aberchalder Estate is nestled in the picturesque Invergarry in Inverness-shire. Aberchalder Estate is a traditional Scottish Highlands Sporting Estate. It encompasses some 30,000 acres of beautiful woodlands, mountains, lochs and rivers, along both sides of the Caledonian Canal in the heart of 'The Great Glen', a 65-mile long rift-valley that cuts across Scotland from Inverness to Fort William. The Great Glen shelters the waters of Loch Ness, Loch Oich and Loch Lochy, linked together by the Caledonian Canal.
I hope this guy remembered his Barbour...
The Barbour has a long standing reputation as the jacket of choice for outdoor sporting activities. In 1908 they specialised in coats for Yachting, Boating, Fishing, Shooting, Walking and even Driving!
The Barbour fishing jackets often include authentic fishing details, from the detachable sheepskin patch and elastic rod holder to leather finishing on the cuffs for durability.
Let's hope the man who purchased this permit had a successful fishing trip, and managed to catch some fresh trout!!
