SAG HARBOR MEMORIES

Le Mouching, fly fishing, welcome

When I first arrived in New York, many years ago, with a little sack the color of a mildewed aquarium as my full set of luggage, I didn’t have even a shadow of a coin in my pocket.

In an attempt to remedy the sad state of affairs, my Hawaiian sweetheart organized an “open studio” for the artists of our loft building in “Hell’s Kitchen”, which is the Manhattan neighborhood where we lived.  During the event a guy came up to me, he was highly impressed and said that he had store next to his movie theater in a little beach town called Sag Harbor far out on Long Island, three hours from New York City; he proposed that we open an art gallery for the summer.Without hesitating we said yes.

NORTH FIRST STREET.

Le mouching, fly fishing, North first streetJunior, everyone in the neighborhood knows and adores Junior. We should mount a statue with flowers for my friend, for his services rendered to the community. Think about it! The incredible number of adolescents in distress that he straightened out, the young druggies or dealers of all sorts, apprentice gangsters and river rats. He taught them to pull themselves together, stand tall and work hard instead of finding themselves in prison; right there, on North First Street: “You dismantle the rotten motor of this Chevrolet and you reassemble it, you do it like this… all nice and clean, like when it left the uterus of it’s mother!” Read more…

DANISH SEA TROUT

Beautiful. simply beautiful, there is nothing to add, there is nothing more beautiful than those sea trouts in those Danish rivers. It just makes you want to go there and be by those rivers with a rod in your hand! More pictures HERE and a book to come. Congrats onas Høholt! 

LABRAX ON THE DOCKS

Brian Elward is a monomaniac half of the year: he’s set on seabass. He hunts them in a fishery that I find absolutely beautiful. Not your savage coast, not the rocks and cliffs of Britanny or New Jersey, but one of the largest industrial harbors of the world. Check these fantastic sights you get while fishing, I find it awesome. Let us join him and hope (and fight for it) that one day, fishing regulations change in Europe, they put an end to this f**king crazy depredation on reproduction zones, kick the asses of the sea’s mass murderers and that the seabass population thrives again. And we’ll have a chance again to get spanked by an angry 30 incher between the blocks.

RUNNING

There are many reasons to run, but one of the best I know is to trot behind a big one that you would lose if you don’t let it troll you around a little. Steaming hot from our buddy Juuso Syrjä‘s editing room, this nice story about friends, a river and one monster slab of a salmon. On a 6wt. After a couple of swims. I say: Rock’n Roll!!!
