Marc,
great article. I was remembering snippets from a long time ago and I myself am getting old so the memory is somewhat foggy. Many thanks for the great explanation of once and away.

Eddie. :z18 :z18

Ed, nope and only indirectly, so nope.

yes gents. 'cul' is indeed a vulgarish' term for arse in french.

ps- Van Klinken's article - Ed, i find it always better to go to the source (when possible) rather than variants from a slap-head...   :X2 :X1 :z4

cheers,
marc

Marc,
I have to confess that I have cheated and looked this up on my computer.

Was it Henry Bresson? :oops :oops

You got that right, Marc. If you ever visit Amsterdam, you'll find out that they know everything there is to know on that subject over there.
(On the other hand, maybe it's best if you don't find that out...:X2)

that's correct Ed, Henri Bresson from the Jura region (near the Alps). good on ya for 'fessing up on how you found it  :z16
one wouldn't know it (if you're not a frog) but the guy had an enormous influence on fly fishing/fly tying/fly design in France.

ok, that was easy. part two is the most interesting.  :wink (at least to me)

Jeroen, i've been to Amsterdam. a butt's a butt and what one may or not do with them is the same anywhere you go...  :z4

cheers,

OK, so it's not really my turn but I can't do what I'm about to do after I post the fishing report about the week that Hamish and I just had.
So here we go.

In a "Where's Waldo?" kind of quiz can you name the following locations?












I loved the first location. It was like an Alfa advert / Top Gear photo shoot, but the idea is to name that damn not admire the Alfa (although you can feel free to do that if you want! :z4)

Good luck!

Having been an Alfa owener, can I ask, how long did it take you to push it to each location ;)

Would it be on the Conon system by any chance?
Ok, I admit it, I quite like this salmon fishing lark....
