Snapshots #345: A Top Ten Fishing Tackle Songs

Yesterday, I left you fishing for the identities of the ten top tuna makers below. Did you catch them all... or was there one that got away?

  1. If I managed to work out some clues this week the quiz was too easy! I managed to work out 4. I wondered if 9 was flashquarter or quarterflash but I'd never heard of either band. And I was sure when someone put out an answer for 4 they were making a joke.

    1. Do you ever feel like you can't win, whatever you do?

  2. As the someone you refer to I can confirm I was not making a joke. This is serious business you know.

    Thank you Mr Rol.
