Fishing near St. Gallen, in Eastern Switzerland

At the cafe

Thomas & Howard needed a break for lunch after a tough morning of fishing. Yes, those are wine glasses — after all, it IS Switzerland & the cafe was French/Italian!

We had to fish from the banks — no wading — because the streams had recently been stocked. This presented a challenge when confronted with trees & shrubs on the banks!

By the stream

Those green fields in the background were being grazed by large & loud herds of brown cows!
