Pete Brigg’s October Paragraph - Buddies
"I once read a quote about friendship. It went something like - "Two may talk together under the same roof for many years, yet never really meet; and then, others at first speak are old friends."
This is true of fly fishers; there is almost always an instant connection - you don’t have to work at it, it is a kind of natural fellowship. So much in fly fishing is about the people you meet along the way, sometimes it’s a casual acquaintance, sometimes it becomes a life-long journey – a companionship amongst like-minded souls, unselfish sharing, spiritual enrichment and lasting memories."
Thanks Pete. These are really lovely pictures. For anyone interested in getting a copy of Pete's brilliant book, 'Call of the Stream', a true celebration of South African fly fishing, please follow the link on My Friend's Pages
Here are a couple of my favourites on the theme of Buddies.
Please feel free to send me your favourite shots and we may yet start a Buddy Gallery
