Revenge of the Farm Animals

June 7, 2005 By: Marshall Cutchin

We all wish “notoriously boastful and irritable” fly fishers were the only targets, but the fact is that fishing near farm animals involves odd risks for everyone, including having your fly rod eaten. Here’s a hilarious piece by Brian Clarke of the London Times which includes this advice from H. T. Sheringham on dealing with bulls: “Other methods of managing a bull are: (1) beating him with an iron bar until he repents of his sins; (2) taking him by the horns and wrestling with him until you have him at your mercy; (3) twisting his tail until he is calm.”
