Little dams, they are as bad as big ones, maybe more because oftne owned by people or small companies that don’t have the means to maintain them or don’t want to. Our river La Dordogne is known to be one fo our best rivers, coming from Massif Central, she starts small bouncing in the canyons than becaomes that slow lady, filled with big trout and the famous DOrdogne grayling. It’s upper part has even been turned into a Catch & Release for several miles. But that was without thinking that the people owning the micro dam upstreet were just a bunch of greedy thugs who didn’t care about that river but only wanted to take the most they could from it. So one night, they just released the water stuck behind the dam so they wouldn’t have to spend any cent to clean it. Unfortunatly, with the water, were tons of sediment that went down the river and distoyed everything. We are hurt, all french fishermen are hurt, because once more “they” don’t care about our rivers. It make us want to cry, such a wonderful river. It’s a shame and shame on the people who run the micro dam. It makes me want to read one of the best Jim Harrison’s novel “A good day to die“. If you haven’t read it yet, it’s a must ! If you read French and want to knwo all about this disaster, it’s HERE
Here’s what we wrote in 2011 Blow that dam
The 50th issue of This is Fly is out. As beautiful as ever, and fully uses the advantages of online magazine: you’ve got a playlist to listen to while you read. Indie/indus pop-rock, all classics. You’ve got an arresting photo portfolio by Dylan Johnston, you’ve got Scott going all Roy Lichtenstein on their Tidal rods. You’ve got ski and fly fishing for a great mix. You’ve got Nibia and Patagonia, Trout Unlimited, the guys of Fokus Studio (who did the graphic design for Hooké)…
The new Catch Magazine is out. In more than a hundred pictures, most of them arrestingly beautiful, and some carefully written texts, you’ll travel to Belize for a fishing paradise and Alaska for steelhead, to Utah for winter browns and to Ireland for its magic. You’ll see a beautiful and somewhat heartbreaking movie by Todd Moen about Oregon’s chrome. To sum up: you’ll be caught dreaming awake in the pictures and sounds from the planet’s best fishing places. I think it’s good value for $12 a year. Subscribe and read here:

But this is not what we are going to show you, what you are about to see is one of the most secret destination for Carp on the fly! Just look at the landscape and think that once you’re done fishing, you can go to the beach. Sounds great, let’s go!
We told Flèche he could not come to the Paris Fly Fishing Show… Just another day of frustration at Le Mouching’s office, exactly the same reaction he had when we told him he could not cast properly.
