Today I will go for a less public part of the river. So hope not to meet anyone shampooing their dog in the river! This occurred on the park stretch last Tuesday on the Wye. Just 20 yards up from where I was sitting eating lunch - all my fly fishing gear propped next to me.
I would have been on the other side of the river, but the relentless strong wind would have been in my face.
Absolutely staggered at this chaps behaviour. As he had to stand on the weir to wash the dog I am sure his trainers and the dog would still smell of river.
And I must tell you about the D of E youths by the Lathkill - but no time now, off fishing - just such a shame I didn't have the camera to hand.
