T&S cover, October 2012
Well.... Either I'm getting better-looking or Gardiner (Mitchell, whom I blame for these photographic catastrophes) is doing ever more astute things with photoshop and the magic air-brush. This is the fourth T&S cover in the past two years, much to my embarrassment. Still, the image encodes wonderful memories of Beltra this past August and it was splendid to encounter salmon and sea-trout that were running in numbers in at least two different-year-classes. Thanks also to Eamonn - he's the good-looking one on the left - who gillied us with such kindliness and expertise and to Newport House (http://www.newporthouse.ie/), who tolerated our vagaries with such hospitable and smiling equanimity.
