SOCA MEMORIES

The Soča in Slovenia is a magnificent river for trout and grayling fishing. Looking at this video from the guys at Fisher KG, I’m beamed there again, feeling the powerful flow against my thighs, mesmerized by the incredible blue of the water, changing by the minute with every cloud, every gust of wind, with the slow movement of the sun. The fish, everywhere. The white rocks. I remember when I was standing exactly where they are, body and mind deep into the river. And then I remember the verses a poet wrote, a morning of August 1916, bathing in the Soča which was then one of the temple of death, the sacred grounds for the mass murders of the first world war.

Questo è l’Isonzo / E qui meglio / Mi sono riconosciuto / Una docile fibra / Dell’universo**

This is the Soča and there I best knew myself as a docile fibre of the universe.

Is there anything fitting better the fly fisherman and his line?

ARCTIC SILVER

As if everything we’d do by the river was slow motion, as if all that we feel was bigger than it is, as if the pleasure we have was endless, as if the days were longer, as if we would get much more from fly fishing, that’s what this film makes me feel. Fishing always makes me a better person. Great job ArcticSilver !

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.
