Birding for Fly Fishers, Fishing for "Twitchers"

November 10, 2007 By: Marshall Cutchin

In the U.K. Independent, Charles Rangeley-Wilson and Mark Cocker discovers that “twitching” has a lot more in common with fly fishing than simple immersion in nature. Cocker: “Actually the bit of equipment I derived most pleasure from were Charles’s conventional old gumboot-style waders. I suspect it’s the bit I’d always longed to do. And it was just as I’d imagined. Walking up to your crutch – legs and thighs housed in rubber – in crystal-clear, fast-flowing water was a heady and profoundly sensuous, even mildly erotic, experience.”
