WAY OUT NORTH

C’mon, let’s go back North, for great outdoors, magnificent fishing, unintelligible dialogues, coffee pots and good sound. And wet wading in trunks on the polar circle, viking style.

STREAMS OF AFRICA

A very nice trip in a South African mountain range, fishing for beautiful trouts in tight cristaline waters on very light rods. Living the African dream.

THYMALLUSAURUS REX

Why do I go fishing? For many reasons. But one of them is surely for catching an exceptionnal fish. Today, one of these rare moments happened, with my fishing brother David. And this, on my natal river (as the salmons use to say). Thank You Mother Nature.

THAT SOMETHING

It’s like your regular video notebook about a fishing trip in northern Norway, just that it’s all about that little something we french call a je ne sais quoi, an elusive fragance that makes all the difference between boring and poetic.

TAKE ME FISHING, NO MATTER WHAT!

I watch that film and it breaks my heart, I’m getting so emotional when I look at it, When I see joy, love, friendship and devotion. This is such a love lesson to us all. I know one day it’s going to be difficult for us to go fishing, when that day comes, take me fishing, no matter what!

SUBTLE PUBLICITY.

Le Mouching, fly fishing, picniqueNormally, this little corner of the river is my secret domain. Rarely are there other fishermen and even more rarely are there troublesome bathers to scare away the fish that amuse themselves playing in the rocks.

But this particular morning (morning, but not too early, after all…) the goddess bitch of the rivers decided otherwise, as demonstrated by the couple of immigrants from the Pas-de-Calais, their kids and their obese, menacing dog.

POON HUNT

All right, I don’t understand a Norwegian word of what the guy from DittFiske says, and I guess it’s the same for most of you, but it’s all right, we get the main point: fishing for tarpon in the Yucatan mangrove on a canoe kicks serious ass. I want to go.
