There high up on your ladder, double hauling on Pyramid Lake, looking for the Lahontan Cuttrhoat, aren’t you happy? Pyramid Lake just off Reno, where the Truckee river ends, coming down from lake Tahoe. This film is a beauty, it’s so calm, is it because of the music (“Slip Away” by Josh Garrels)? Is it because of the softness of the image? I don’t know. I just feel calmer when I watch it. I want to be with those guys guided by Matt “Gilligan” Koles et Doug Ouellette.
A short film to tell you that you won’t have to wait no mmore, that season opens soon (Sathurday in France), the soundtrack is sweet as candy, and for the ones who have the luck to go on opening day, Le Mouching will have a photo contest next week with your best opening day picture ! stay tuned!
Music : Deep Shadows de Beans & Fatback
At the time that this story took place, my wife and I lived in a disaffected church in the Catskill Mountains, three hours from New York City. We froze our buns off in the church which is, I guess, normal. With a miserable bank account such like ours, how could one expect to heat a place like that?
One day a local guy, who probably took pity on me, helped me to stack logs for our wood stove and we became friends.
Knowing my passion for fishing, one night he called me to propose: “Fleche, what do you think about going salmon fishing with me tomorrow at 4 a.m.?”
“You’re kidding or what, Bob? (His name was Bob… the jerk!)”
“Great, I’ll come by to get you. Don’t worry about anything, I have all the material that we’ll need.”
You can imagine that I slept very little just thinking about the trip.
It was damn cold outside at four in the morning and in his 4×4 one of the windows was stuck so it wasn’t any warmer inside. Read more…
Polders and canals, washed by northern wind, fishing on a belly boat on the path of barges. Tiring, risky, but such a joy, hooking those mawsive pikes on a sinking line. Here’s the sum up of season 13/14 with Dyckers. Let’s go Netherlands!
Hammerhead shark, we fear them more than anything else.IOff the coast of Mozambique this diver goes to shoot Dolphin and Kingfish, when going back to the boat…
Hurry up! Opening day is coming quicker than we think! In France fishing seasons starts this sathurday, at last! Last minute shopping? It’s always good to check what the flyshops have for sale, sometimes you find what you were looking for at a better price than what you thought you would pay… Here’s Ardent Flyshop opportunities.
You probably remember when we talked about RC Cone’s Tributaries, and directed you to the link to buy it online. And if you had the chance to go the the Rise film festival, you’ve seen a short 20 minut edit of the film. Which means you probably noticed one guide you feel you want to spend some time with, fishing those massive salmon from Iceland. That guide is Sigurdur Hedinn Hardarson, also known as “Siggi Haugur”, founder of Icelandic Fly Fishermen. Here’s a mash up of the best images from that film, enjoy!
Did you know that the Lake District in North East England was the home of Artic Char? It’s all new to me. But If it wasn’t for The Environment Agency/Wild Ennerdale I would never have been aware of that, neither would you. Because Arctic Char were dying, the population was shrinking due to the difficulties to spawn. Luckly, the amazing work done by The Environment Agency/Wild Ennerdale has changed the course and now the population of Arctic Char is increasing!
This adventure from Jazz & Fly Fishing is perfect before D Day, I mean before opening day! We feel close to these guys, they are normal, just like you and me, not supermen catching fish big as a calf in a film edited as a music video with a soundtrack bad enough to scare our kids away! No, here we have real life, we can understand what is happening when there is no fish because we all know how it feels. We cannot wait for episode 2!
