Indeed, well done Jim  :z16
If anyone gets the location of the second pic in the Alfa version of 'where's waldo?' I'd be uber impressed, third one isn't exactly easy either........ I was there and I'm having difficulty remembering  :z7

Ah the age related, short term memory problem... :z7

It is tricky so lets just say it's on the Beauly and it's the view point above a hydro scheme. The downstream view looks like this

ok, to finish off the CDC quiz.
1) who came up with the term 'Cul de Canard' ?
 as noted earlier, the author is Henri Bresson.

as for the second part,
2) what exactly was he referring to ?
he was referring to a fly design he came up with which turned out to be an amazing pattern (even though it don't look like much...)
before this pattern, the term CDC was used in its original and 'less vulgar' form, Croupion de Canard. 'Croupion meaning 'Rump'. if we look at this region closely ( :z4) and where these feathers actually come from, the Uropygial gland situated on top of the tail feathers and not at the 'Cul' below... the original designation, although a bit less 'haw-haw funny'  than the latter seems more appropriate.
 
more gland info here- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uropygial_gland

a wee bit of info on the man in english here- http://www.gourmetfly.com/Tourjur3.htm

and here's the best i could find that shows the original pattern, materials, and tying instructions.

thread- yellow
abdomen- swan quill
thorax/wing/legs) cdc palmered, trimmed after completion if needed/wanted, simples !

sure, this was more for the tying geeks but i thought it would make for some interesting trivia.

cheers,
marc

ps- do i get a prize because no-one found the response ?  :z1

Warmer!
Clue 2. The section down to the dam is more like a river and you need to show your papers before you are allowed through the gate.

Full report on the week, including some amazing photos once this one is solved.  :z4
