fishin’ hole

one of my favorite playgrounds.

nestled in the french pyrenean foot hills, it’s filled with smallish native brown trout or Farios as they’re called locally (Salmo trutta morpha fario). because of the difficult terrain they see very little fishing pressure which makes them sometimes rather easy to catch.
access isn’t as easy as it looks… and in some areas, navigating from one area to the next necessitates either swimming or drifting downstream but it’s a welcome treat during the hot summers and well worth the extra trouble to see these magnificent creatures close up !
