  1. “Narcissistic, Moi?” – An Occasional New Series

    I was on a Welsh trout river the weekend before the one just past, fishing dry March Brown and Large Dark Olive patterns and Grannom Caddis CDC and deerhair Emergers, when a small group of university-age boys and girls appeared on the ancient stone roadbridge that lay about 70 yards upstream of me.

    Out came their cells. Up onto the bridge’s stone-walled parapet one young couple went.

    In went the guy (in, as off the bridge and into the river perhaps 30 feet below) a minute or so later.

    No harm done, as the pool below that bridge is a deep one and quite capable of holding salmon in the days when there were some about.

    Suffice it to say, I pretended not to notice and just walked down a further 80 yards to fish another pool and run.

    I did allow myself a bit of an evil Muttley laugh once I got there, though.
