A New Technique

I think I may have found a technique to rival New Zealand droppers – a cutting stare!

The Contemplative Angler describes the method very well –

I stationed myself on a rock in mid-stream and began to regard the pool with disdain – beginning with moderate annoyance I accelerated through active pique, arriving within seconds at a withering scorn. After a few minutes I noticed a “nice” fourteen inch brown roll to the surface in humble chagrin…

Fantastic – I am practicing in front of the mirror until my leg heals properly.

    You will note from the comment on my blog that I gave proper attribution to the historic origin of the technique in a Highland burn.

    BTW, if you are still considering Orvis waders with the zip-front, I spent quite some time trying to devise a better solution. My lab notes are found at http://overmywaders.com/cblog/archives/32-Zippers-on-waders….html

    Though I am incapable of bringing this great invention to fruition, the fine engineering minds of Glasgow should be able to perfect it. I entrust it therefore to you.

    Best regards,
    P.S. – fond memories of Glasgow.
