HOOKÉ IN GASPÉ part 1

Our friends from Quebec are going on an Salmon expedition to Gaspé. It’s just what we love, friends, roadtrip, easy living and fishing ! To get english subtitles, press on the CC link at the bottom right corner of the vimeo screen.

“ I don’t expect them to get very far.” Ron Bourdages’ words echoed through our blurry mind as we climbed aboard the Hooké Van after a solid film projection party at Cimes Adventures. We were quite a bit hangover, we had a gap in our driving shaft but all you could smell in the Hooké Van was confidence. We were on our way to Gaspé, to fish the Falls of the Dartmouth River, we had a lot to hope upon. We finally got installed and had a quiet night before leaving for the pool at dawn. Arrived on the spot, Phil and Fred had a nasty Rock-Paper-Scissors war. Victorious, Fred got the honour to make the first cast in the raging river. This is where everything started for us, when he lost his first salmon of three. This day will remain one of the craziest we’ve lived on a salmon river with all the salmons, good moments and failures it includes. We’re glad to present you with this first part and hope you will enjoy it as much as we do. Keep following us, the second part is coming very soon!”

2000 FISH IN ONE CAST

Le-mouching-fly-fishing-colonialeAnton Schwartz was an old childhood friend. We often made fun of him and called him “Anton Noire” (children can be so cruel). When he was young he happily sowed his wild oats but his  encounters with the justice forced him to join the Colonial forces where he brought honor to France. All of our colonies in Africa (center and north), in Asia (Tonkin, Viet Nam and others that I won’t even mention), held no secrets for my friend.  He could tell you stories for hours, his voice often breaking with emotion. One day he invited me to the “Mousmee” bar where he the following story. “My dear Fleche, like  you, I am crazy about fly fishing;  it’s a most instructive passtime and I have a story that I think you’ll appreciate. It took place ages ago on my return from the war of Tonkin.calvitie copie On the shores of the Red River I had  fallen  head over heels in love with a delicious native whose singular name was “Long-Long”. She was an magnificent local specimen and I brought her back to France along with the whole tribe of her brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts and all the rest; you can take  it from me… that was an enormous pack of yellows! It will come as no surprise to you  that the surpassing culinary passion of these people is for fish. They consume enormous quantities of fish morning, noon and  night. You can well understand that given the prohibitive prices of these acquatic beasts, whose freshness in our sinister french fish markets was relative, that these poor asiatics were in tears. And Fleche, you know me, you can imagine how the chagrin of these people broke my heart and gave me considerable, unexpected, inventive resources to render life supportable for my friends…. I am certainly, first of all, a christian. Well, it’s no secret that the women in that part of the world possess hair of an uncommon finess, length and solidity. Read more…

FIRST STEPS (TENKARA STYLE)
