A few days ago my wife and I were invited to celebrate Thanksgiving dinner with friends who live in a little town two hours from New York by train. The air there was fresh and dry and it smelled good and clean. The traditional meal was quite respectable as were all of the people gathered around the table.
I found myself sitting next to a guy, on my left, who I had never met before. A nice face, between two ages… the guy ate the traditional turkey without saying a word. So, I introduced myself and engaged him in conversation. Quickly, as you can imagine, we arrived at our respective passions and “le Mouching” of course, appeared at the table.
Surprised, my neighbor interrupted me: “Tell me, have you ever heard about Julia Fairchild?” Read more…

(SORRY THIS BOOK IS NOT TRADUCED YET IN ENGLISH !!) Voilà un bouquin qu’il va falloir offrir à Flechemuller tellement j’ai pensé à lui durant sa lecture ! Le Petit dictionnaire philosophique du pêcheur en pédalo est un livre – pas si petit que ça ! – écrit par Jean-Christian Michel, professeur de philosophie, apiculteur mais surtout pêcheur, qui s’amuse au jeu des définitions pour raconter sous formes d’essai ou de souvenirs sa passion pour la pêche, la truite et la nature.
Malgré la saison, nous déconseillerons ce savoureux dictionnaire comme livre de plage mais plutôt comme un ouvrage à prendre et à reprendre, un livre de chevet ou un bouquin de chiotte, qu’il faudra lire par bribes tellement la nourriture spirituelle y est riche. Car chaque définition ne sont que quelques pages de lecture souvent gourmandes, volontiers fantaisistes ou drôles et parfois fort profondes. On y parle de vie, de mort, d’obsession, de rivière et de truite… tout ce qui construit nos existences.
Ce n’est pas tous les jours qu’un ouvrage aussi original aura la chance de figurer dans votre bibliothèque halieutique. Courez achetez le Petit dictionnaire philosophique du pêcheur en pédalo !
Here’s Pêches Sportives #96 ! One of our best french fishing mag…and we are proud to have our Mouchingman, Mister Pike, Mister Gear testing : Mr Jérôme Servonnat !
We are currently working on the translation of this masterpiece
D’aussi loin que je me souvienne, avec mon père, ça a toujours été le pugilat, verbal. Je crois que ce qui le défrisait surtout, était l’indifférence que j’affichais pour la passion de sa vie : le Parti Communiste. Ça, il ne pouvait pas l’accepter. Ensuite, sur la liste des “trahisons” venait mon émigration à New York. “Le territoire de l’ennemi” et, pour couronner le tout, mon mariage avec une “Capitaliste”. Ça, c’était la cerise sur le gâteau ! Read more…
The Flyfish Journal, Volume 4, Issue 4. It comes in the mail all wrapped up in a sealed envelope, you take it out and you are done! It sticks to your eyes you cannot get rid of it, not before you’ve read it over and over again! And when you put it back, your face is wet with splashes from the river and your hands stinks like fish. The Flyfish Journal is th ultimate paper mag. Not the kind that you read once and forget in the toilets, no, you read it once, and read it again and again, you proudly leave it on the coffee table and then you stash it in your library. Every flyfisherman should suscribe.
Before redoing their website and opening an oline store, our friends from Riverstones, the famous flyp shop in Southern Brittany are having a closing sale, maybe you should take adventage of the hefty discount on all their fly fishing gear (what’s left of it…) And be on the look out for their new online boutique !
