Lily, THE drone

You love to take selfies, you love fly fishing and you wished someone would film you from above, but you are alone… Here’s what you are going to ask for Xmas or your birthday if it comes before… The Lily Drone! Maybe one of the best invention of the year! You need a proof of it? Check the film below. In other words, put the master device in your pocket, throw the slave drone in the air and fish!! You can also use it for other purposes but we don’t want to know.

As fly fishers we travel, a lot, of course some guys will tell you they never fish anywhere else but their river, but at Le Mouching, we are travelers. Here’s a great idea for all of you who are planning to come fishing and eating in France or a spanish speaking country (Cuba ? Argentina ?) as well as France or even Italy for the lucky ones who will be able to fish the Italian Alps (very useful in Slovenia too). Well here there are, a pack of three litte guides How To Read The Menu In France, Italy And Spain to all the serets of  their cuisine, not the secrets of cooking but to make you feel comfortable reading a menu ! Size of a credit card, you’ll carry thoses wherever you’ll travel, and if you don’t travel, it’s a cool gift anyways!

Victorinox Helmsman

[Dear friends, please welcome Simon Manatane, our new Mouching teammate. You know how we roll at the Mouching, so we thought it appropriate that, as an introduction to you, he should present you with his favorite knife. Ladies and gents, here comes… Simon’s knife!]

A good seaman always has a knife, and more if he is also a fisherman.

There was a time I hadn’t mine. On board of that small sailing boat, from Atlantic we were reaching Mediterranean Sea by the Canal du Midi, my friend dropped in my hands this knife. And keep it ! A Victorinox Helmsman, of course adapted to sea life.

Miles and miles passing, on board cargo ships across oceans or an fishing boat on lake in Ireland that knife never leaves me. The point, the special shackle tool, so useful on a sailing boat, when the damn screw is locked by the rust, or to catch the hook deeply placed in a pike mouth. And screwdrivers! Essential for small repairs on cargo’s engine or with my old Renault 4L.

But a knife is mainly a blade and that one…almost orgasmic to slice with it. I will never thank it enough when in Gdansk I had to cut a rope in emergency to clarify knots and knots in cooling plant hoses needed to our few engines still running good…and in Poland at winter time, even docked, it is always nice to keep air cond’ running. In fact all the engine room well working  was hold by that knife shot. And the special rope blade made the job. A pretty good job.

Never took special care of it, always asking more and more from this knife and it still shows no weakness, no corrosion, and the blade still sharp. In fact it is The knife for fishermen and seamen. My worst nightmare is to lose it.

If you get interested to get a real good knife Victorinox replaced the Helmsman with the Skipper, which comes with small plyers, good thinking there!
