"The Goodworth Clatford Christmas Quiz, helping to raise funds for the St Peter’s Church Spire Appeal and now in its fourth year, seems to grow ever more ingenious. Last year, we did it over the Christmas holiday and thought we had done well - but found that we were well beaten by several very intelligent families from the village.

"Quiz or crossword enthusiasts will find it both intriguing and hugely entertaining."

Section F – A new angle on life

Find the hidden numbers, highlight or underline them and enter the total sum of the numbers found:

On every fishing expedition, the angler must start with reel, rod and flies. Most of our expeditions are in Hampshire and take place towards evening when the fish are more active.

It is important to choose the right weight of leader to fasten securely to the line. (One can do without worrying that it will come undone or unravel even!) Then, in every case, the fly must be tied on carefully – the knot won’t work loose if tied properly.

A fly fisherman likes to be by himself; if tying a fly causes difficulty however he may seek assistance. To call an angler selfish is not fair to the man himself – or typical of the average participant, Fishing appeals to all sorts; even tycoons like to relax after a heavy day in the office. Time flies when you are fishing – you wonder where it went. You are never bored as eventually you are almost sure to catch something. But an inexperienced angler must keep his frustration to himself – if teenagers they should be particularly careful…

Sorry, if I’ve taken up too much of your time but life would not be the same without wondering what is happening on the Dever; my favourite spot is Bransbury Mill – I only wish I could go there more often.

N.B. Where two numbers use the same letters the longer word takes priority ie. ‘Fourteen’ is 14 (not 4 or 4 and 14)

Total sum = ........ (15 marks)
