That morning was certainly one of the most beautiful mornings of the day. The reason being that I was in my river, my docile flyrod in hand and two voluptuous nymphs hanging by the neck at the end of my line. Another reason (and not the least) was that a colony of vacationing Barbell, of a respectable size, had a ferocious desire to make it with these nymphomaniac nymphs to start their dinner. And not a single canoe or kayak in sight.
And on this magnificent morning everything was perfect and to top it off I was able to splash around in my dear river. I was swimming in the saintliness of nirvana when my left eye (politically correct) was attracted by two white forms coming downstream towards the water’s edge. What I had taken at first for two human size bottles of milk, was in reality two young girls wearing white floaty dresses. (With age one often confuses things!) Read more…
All right, I don’t understand a Norwegian word of what the guy from DittFiske says, and I guess it’s the same for most of you, but it’s all right, we get the main point: fishing for tarpon in the Yucatan mangrove on a canoe kicks serious ass. I want to go.
Patagonian chrome, an absolute wonder lost in the middle of a wind swept desert. When will I see you again, land of wonders? A movie by our friends from the Fly Fishing Nation, beautiful as a Nine Inch Nails’ song with a Black Sabbath title.
Infographics are a rather cool mean to put together pieces of information in a fun, hence easy to memorize, way. And Fix.com is all about infographics. It is a strange and interesting project, actually: to gather useful tips about all sorts of common activities, and put them into a visually attractive format. Go have a look!
Here’s one about fly fishing: (click pic)
Here’ comes the second part, for our pleasure!

Phil had predicted a storm and all we hoped was that he wasn’t wrong. After losing five salmons in a single day, we had a chance of redemption on the next day. The Falls, take two. So after a night of turning over in our beds we climbed in the van with small eyes and great ambitions. We came down the stairs, the water had lowered so much that a new step had appeared. The river was still dark but we had stopped trying to see the salmons. We knew where they were, now we had to get them to react. Phil won the first drop privilege and took place at the beginning of the pool, he made a first cast, then a second. Then we saw he wasn’t wrong.
Summer evenings, when all of a sudden the river is caught in a cloud of flies, when you don’t know anymore where to cast, when there is so much food on the water you have to make the difference so it’s your fly that is going to be eaten. When the air is warm, the gentle breeze carresses the water, just drag a little bit your fly, and it’ll be magical!
Fighting erosion, a man, alone is penting trees, and more trees. He planted a forest to fight what people thought was inevitable, and then life rose again. This film is a must! Let’s go and plant trees!
There’s a slight nonsensical wiff running along this video, but then salmon fishing is quite an absurd endeavor, and that’s precisely why it is so beautiful.
