That's Way with the face paint, think Steve's to his right. Jere on the left? Several of these guys do look too framilier.

Notice the unusual 'underarm' hand positions on the rods. Hugh Falkus would certainly not have approved! Anyone know when the more conventional 'thumb on top' grip was developed?

Man, that's a pretty crowded beat. Looks like public water on the Bonaventure.

Cheers,

After 5 blank days

I think I was on the beat that week. After 5 blank days and no fish seen the Ghillie suddenly shouted "there's a fish".

John.

P.S. It's a real pleasure speycasting wae yer kilt on! (summer fishing only though)

True Scots

Fred, the kilt must be worn at all times (even in Snow) with nothing underneath. That's a sign of a "True Scotsman".
As for weather, it's not that bad, but we do get our fair share of rain, which as we all know is a good thing if your a Salmon fisher!!!!

Aha!!! Just as I suspected. In Braveheart all the Scots

had on blue (war) face paint. Any remote connection between the choice of colour and the 'colour' of other "parts" of the male body?:rolleyes:
