The Ghillie

By jimPat
This my dear old friend and ghillie on our beat of the River Tweed, Wattie has taught me more about fly-fishing for salmon than any other man - both his sons were capped in international rugby (Michael&Finlay)

This one for you Wattie - get well soon my friend.

Comments, critique welcome - have a good week-end folks - regards JP
