The cochybondhu!!! Brings back some memories. Had just started fly fishing back in the 80's. My mate Alan & I had arrived at 'our' loch (no idea really what we were doing!) to find the loch margins covered in rising trout. Alan put on a cochybondhu spider and took his first fly caught loch trout, probably more in luck than anything, I in the meantime, put on a god-knows-what fly and caught absolutely nothing. But I didn't care - Alan was in absolute rapture and that was good enough for us both. Happy innocent days!
