Badger4 clue for 63. The act of throwing something into the water to catch fish. Answer is something used by Spanish ladies. Any help in return for 52. Search 6,6. Thanks

Thank Badger - have just clicked on 63. Used by Spanish dancers to make clicks might help.
88 is a victorian/shakesperian word for cobbler. I'll keep working on the rest. Now have 4 to go.

Wileycoyote thanks for 32, got it at long last. You will find the words for arouse and anagram them with R, I found them after looking for ages. 50 The film star is an anagram of the first 3 words I think 78 have got an instrument of torture which would be right but will have to check it again because it doesn't work as an anagram

Badger4 Looking at 88. Just before 50 refers to clue 49. Find a synonym for the tradesman in that answer.

Twinsnan have got 78. The long version of I'll is IWILL, backwards. A pink is a sailing ship and lands end is S. Put them together and you get a finger crusher.

Maisie P anagram of search and you'll find a word to do with feet then put the other word in front Thanks to you all for 88 and 63, only got Garbo to solve now + double check my instrument of torture - I've got the first 5 letters of the word as a digit on the hand which babies suck but having doubts now as it's not an anagram. Can't bear looking up instruments of torture for long, makes me feel sick!

Wileycoyote thanks for that - can get away from all those horrible things thank goodness although maybe we could do with using a few of them on certain people today! Now to synonyms for garb for the 100th time so I can solve that one and sleep at night once more.
