- Devisers’ Notes:
In the rotating reel (as a corner dancer) be sure after passing right shoulder to first woman or man that you keep RIGHT to dance the rotation. First couple also need to be generous with their phrasing and allow the corner dancers to have the space to complete the rotation, there is plenty of time for first couple to complete their part of this formation.
If this is proving a mission with your group, the alternative is to dance 6 hands round and back.
Again with this dance as with Dave Macfarlane's Reel after the second time through the original 1st couple stay in third place and move down on 3-4 of the second repeat. Shown on the You Tube Clip.
This dance was devised to celebrate the 40th birthday of Brian (Ginger) Richards. Brian's three great passions are Jenny Richards (his wife), Scottish country Dancing and Fishing (not necessarily in that order!). Jenny asked us to devise this dance and put in movements that Brian loves.
The movements in this dance represent the collection of the boat (1-8), the throwing out of the first line (9-12), a tiddler escaping (13-16, where the corners return safely home), and then the big catch (28) which is hauled aboard (29-32).
The formations we have used were obvious to us. when you have seen Brian's enthusiasm and the way he has introduced these movements into other dances, they are logical choices.
