The Penyffordd Trout Tickler

Amongst us we have a villager who is skilled in the art of trout tickling. In his early days he would wade into a tributary of the River Dee up to his armpits in icy cold water and wait for sea trout to swim by. In the right circumstances it is possible to tickle the underside of the trout which makes the trout go into a trance. It is then possible to sweep the fish out onto the river bank.

The links below describe the process better.
