Here we go! What we all thought of has finaly arrived! Seeing fly fisher casting and the fish getting caught! We love it, it’s one of many videos to come in the future I guess, will Drones be the new GoPro? We hope so, we cannot stand fly fishing films enterily shot with GoPros anymore (we never did actualy). So this session on the Alagnak in Bristol bay, Alaska is fantastic!
During winter, days are short and often the mood is mellow, when its dark in the early evening I like to have some black tea, I mean really black and I play a few records, loud, or I listen to the best mixtapes I can find. This sunday I decided to share something whith you, a gem one of the best jazz mixtapes I’ve heard in a while, of course you have to enjoy Jazz to like it too, but not sure you need to, it’s so good, just play it. It’s the Sunday Jam show from Radio RTU, Lyon. It comes with all sort of gems from Lee Morgan to Billie Holiday with much modern things suchas Yusef Lateef or Sun Ra, give it a go, it’s worth it. HERE and don’t ever forget if you want to downoload it , THIS is your friend !

The Farmer, we don’t know why it’s called the Farmer, coming from the country side I’ve never seen any farmer carrying one… but it’s like everything, it’s part of the dream, when you carry that knife in your pocket at the office or just hold it in your hand it’s an open ticket to your wildlife dreams! Nevertheless, We love this knife, simple, elegant and yet usefull, with all the blades you’ll need. Get it, you’ll instantly be in the countryside! Can you feel the wind in your face and the smeel of moss around you, can you hear the birds and the river down below ? You’ve got a Farmer’s knife!
“…Guiding is a totally different thing from fishing, ” That very simple sentence makes the whole difference. That’s probably why there are some “guides” and some “good guides”! Guiding requires much more than just knowing how to fish, it requires something much bigger than that, it requires being able to share, to be humble and caring! That’s why it’s difficult to be a good guide…it requires human skills that very few humans have. That’s why we love guides, that’s why we always take a guide whereever we go because it’s much more than fishing, we love guides and we cannot wait to watch this documentary : Through The Guides !
We all had the experience: “I go down the river, you go up, I’ll leave the car keys on top of the tire”… we’ve all done it, but then we think.. Hmmmm I’ve left all my money in the car, my cell phone and there is 67 983$ worth of gear…. So you go back to the car and you take your key with you, but your fishing buddy comes back before you and waits for… well we all know this kind of stories, but that’s long gone! Let’s use what all surfers are using a “Key Safe“!!! It’s great ! you stash your key in it, you share the code with your friend, you lock the safe under the car and everyone is happy! prbably one of the best investment you can do!
