Take your mice to Alaska, they’ll definatly be usefull there ! We love that film! We love the soundtrack (Gramatik)! We love the fish! We love Aniak River! We love everything, thaks to that film we are in a fantastic good mood!
A little trip to Eastern South Africa, the Sterkfontein Dam somewhere between Lesotho and Swaziland, where one can fish for yellowfish on dries. Exotic.
Here’s for your week end, for all of us who haven’t had the luck to go fishing in Russia, 15 minutes for us to dream about. Big rainbows on dry!
Here’s a healthy dose of the good stuff. Well shot, edited to death, matched with a carefully chosen soundtrack, it’s just a pleasure to watch. And then, you’re left dreaming about that life, in remote and preserved places, where you can actually stop the car along the river when you were coming home with the groceries, take out the flyrod, and catch a handful of wild browns. They’re small, but one doesn’t care. Everything around is beautiful, and the creek’s song is from Tennyson:
For men may come and men may go / But I go on forever.
I love those films, they just show me what I’m dreaming of, I’m at my desk at Le Mouching’s office and there is a guy that comes in my world telling me there’s a better place for me to be…. I want to go to Gaspésia! I want to fish that salmon! I want to wathc the TV show.
I’ve have had the great opportunity of being invited by Tim Rajeff and Katherine Hart at Rajeff Sports in Vancouver, WA. What do they do at Rajeff Sports (boy, are they neat folk!) when guests from overseas are visiting? Before breaking bread they break… fly rods!!!
Well, Tim is the relentless driving force (hybrid engine, if you please) behind Echo products , including some really “flexible” fly rods as you will see!
After work comes leisure: nothing like a great meal, washed down with excellent wine to fill the batteries before proceeding to yet more activity, casting pretty loops late into the night…
Many thanks to Tim and Kath and the entire Rajeff Sports staff for the overwhelming welcome.
Aah, you might be interested in getting your hands onto some of those Echo products, including the remarkable fly rods? They can be had at Baltic Fly Fisher.
All the fellows who’ve been to Sweden this summer have had terrible conditions for fishing… drought and awfully hot waters, no fish out… and that’s what happend to us! But some of us had the good feeling and they went there at the end of spring/beginning of summer. Our bud Thias has been to Location X with his fellows, with Fantastic Mr Trout. And they lived what you dream about when you go on a fishing trip: crazy fishing in a crazy landscape. Big Up guys!!!
Usually I avoid wedding invitations, baptisms, and other joyous occasions like the plague; except this time it was different. It was the marriage of Mick, 68 years old, a physicist and an old friend; he was marrying the beautiful Marianne, a young specialist of tantric sex.
The wedding was to take place on their property in Niceville Florida, at the edge of a bayou filled with tarpons, redfish, cobias and other legendary fish. Added to that, they were sending us the airplane tickets gratis, you can understand that I threw my scruples and hesitations out the window. Read more…
