“If there is magic on the planet, it is contained in Water”
～ Loren Eisele
Fly fishing, with all the countless elements that surrounds this activity, makes for a very rich, diversified and beautiful environment.
Forever researching all of the myriad aspects to expand my own knowledge of this fascinating world, TLC is a place to showcase these magical places whilst including more practical items of interest on fly fishing, fly casting and fly tying I learn along the way combined with personal perspectives when I feel I can bring something to the table.
The watery world’s ecosystems are indeed fascinating and well worth celebrating every day. It’s a pleasure to share my vision of it all through my images.
As for the site’s title, The Limp Cobra is a presentation fly cast I devised some years ago as one of several means to present a fly with a good amount of slack in the line and leader to hopefully counter the effects of seemingly endless micro-currents and counter-currents so prevalent in small stream fishing where I live in southern France.
It results in a slack-line/pile cast line layout that is performed with both a low back-cast and low front-cast to stay away from tree branches and other snaggy things, it temporarily has two distinct loops; one horizontal and one vertical which in an abstract kind of way looks like a cobra that rears its head, strikes, then collapses in a lazy heap… thus the name !
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you’ll come back.
