Experiences at the Platform


  • I couldn’t tell left from right – even when my guide was blatantly demonstrating to me (pointing…!)
  • It was impossible to stay calm when I saw a school of fish running 🔥 hot at the boat
  • I developed total amnesia in respect of casting requirements
  • A strange general inability to see anything that looked like a fish possessed me
  • I increased my capacity to stand on any fly-line in my proximity
  • The creation of tangles increased in frequency and indeed complexity directly in relation to the presence of fish
  • The regular barracuda bit of  my fly off when any permit waved its tail
  • My guide told me my new €250 glasses were the wrong colour
