Does anyone have any tying instructions for the Mortons Annie?  Last one I tied was in the early '80s!

Thanks

I probably have got them here somewhere, if I can find it I'll post or post a step by step if I get time. Failing that, why not give ol Morty a ring, he's in CHCH and would love nothing better than to personally show someone how to tie it... he lives for that kind of stuff. Lovely old chap Morty!

That's a shame Alan, I saw him about twelve months ago and he was tying still. That must be hard for him, he's so passionate about it.
