a surprise fly-fair popped up (well, sort of… ) in Argentat, France and the best part is i’ll be demoing single-hand spey and presentation casts but the really best part is the organizers don’t even know it yet !
outside of the weather service saying it’s supposed to rain all weekend and seeing great friend Fabrice, this part of the Dordogne river is the only river in France still open to grayling fishing. (trout and grayling waters all close at the same time in France. apparently, most anglers can’t tell the difference between the two or how to fish for them separately… ) anyhow, even though grayling are a despicable species and since carping waters are mostly mud, the opportunity of fishing ‘trout’ waters even surrounded by a bunch of frogs is too hard to pass up !
lines need to be lubed, bags filled and i need to find my good-luck Punto-Blanco boxer shorts and buy tons of chocolate. i hope you all have a great weekend !
for some strange reason, should you want to know very little more about this event and can deal with incomprehensible french, click the pic.
at it’s ninth issue Eat, Sleep, Fish is going and growing well and strong and one thing’s for certain, they have their priorities straight !
always a pleasant read, this issue comes highly recommended.
(except of course for the article on tenkara… i care deeply for you my reader, please remember that any knowledge of this method further than the name itself will wipe out all the good fly fishing karma points you’ve gained over the years leading to eons of pain and suffering, total lack of sexual capability and to top it all off, you’ll be forced to eat Swedish food forever while being basely reduced to fishing with worms… )
anyhow, click on the M&M bag, enjoy !
ps- something’s really queer about this photo. first one to say what it is gets bonus karma points !
