Here is a video taken from the excellent blog from Nicolas Germain, spiritual son (maybe more than that) of the late André Terrier. This is the documentary’s trailer on the actual alarming situation of the Loue and Doubs rivers. I invite you to browse Nicola’s blog, there are numerous posts on the Franche Comté rivers. This documentary will be on screen on France3 Franche-Comté this Saturday, 9th February at 15:20. It will likely be available on the France 3 website later, I will try to publish it.


We cannot close our eyes anymore and pretend it’s not true. The Franche Comté rivers, some of the most beautiful French rivers for us flyfishers, are not going well. Not well at all. We are now talking about the a great part of the future of trout flyfishing in France.
