an unexpected yet very welcomed guest from the casting pond.
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.
