We recently received the following product review from an unknown customer for our British Isles Fish ID Slate,
Now this is not your average product review and when we first saw it we knew that we had to share it with the world 🙂
Finally – the proof I need – Oswaldo – 07/31/2015
I had always been highly suspicious of my local ‘chippy’ On many an occasion the battered cod that I had ordered had a funny taste – when I questioned it, the shop owner, Mrs Gretoli, assured me that it was prime cod caught in British waters. I decided that enough was enough and decided to take matters into my own hands by purchasing one of these slates. Firstly, let me say that the service from Holt diving was superb and cannot be faulted in anyway. The item arrived promptly and was wrapped in protective bubble-wrap. The slate and service was everything I had hoped for and so much more. Now, back to my story…That very night I once again purchased Cod and Chips from Mrs Gretoli’s chippy. I asked if it was definitely cod, and when she answered “yes” I gave her a wry smile and a wink of the eye as I hastily took my goods. The chart I had ordered was small enough for me to take in the car and as soon as I got in it I unwrapped my Friday night’s supper with one hand and the I.D chart in the other.Carefully pulling at the hot, golden batter until the flesh was exposed, I held the chart close to the steaming fish. I scanned the I.D chart going down in order.. Wolf Eel..no, Red Gurnard..no, Rockling..no until I reached cod.Damn it! She was right..it was cod! A prefect match. I had been wrong all this time! Well what do you know?!So thanks Holt diving for helping me with this! I will now write Mrs Gretoli a full and frank apology.
