Normally, 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. The dog, with his olive green coat, made me think he was from the extreme right.

Summer evenings, when all of a sudden the river is caught in a cloud of flies, when you don’t know anymore where to cast, when there is so much food on the water you have to make the difference so it’s your fly that is going to be eaten.

The ocean is filled with plastic, thousands and thousands of remains that once were usefull and now are just garbage that will take thousand of years to degrade. Unless we all take part of it and pick up every little piece of platic we find. It might seem to be nothing but I’m sure if we all pick up plastic it’ll be a better world for our kids. And what about making some art with it or make usefull things?
When I was a kid, the cool dudes, the one that we would call hipsters a few decades later, would go skiing dressed up as if they were in the forties, and they use to ski this funny way which would make them kneel to take curves on the slopes, of course they would clib up and never us a lift, they were much too cool for that. Telemark was the way they called their skiing. Telemark is a region in Norway were you can hike the mountains and go for beautiful trout!
