Suppose for a minute that, shamefully, you managed to seduce the fish of your life with a magic fly. (Surely that must happen from time to time, no?) So, there you are with your blood pressure climbing to 190 and suddenly you blurt out: “Holy fucking shit… I left my camera on the kitchen table, today of all days when I really need it!”
Echoing across the river a series of cuss words follow, one worse than the other (rest assured that we would never publish such words on this blog!). Mothers put hands over the ears of their young, blind men fall in the water like drunken subimagos, pregnant women go into labor in infamous places, to sum it up, it’s like the uprising of 1776.

Here’s delight for your eyes, bliss to go through the pages of a mag dedicated to what we love the most, fantastic pictures, great stories, fishing trips, Tiger fish, salmon, trout, wilderness, dreamland, gear, fly tying and a hell of photgraphies!! You’re going to dive in it and it’ll be hard for you to come of it easily, you’ll be possessed by one obsession: fishing! Revive #3, is too good, we want more!
A couple of years ago, I was dreaming about extreme distances with a very special rod, the Sage TCR (Technical Casting Rod). I’ve never tried it. Since, there has been the TCX, and now, new for 2014, the Method just arrived. A dream of a rod for crazy distances. For the flyfishermen who love to cast their flies… where they want.
Test is coming soon, in the pages of your beloved Mouching!
Be like them and become a Le Mouching’s Fan!
Everyone knows (even you) that the TIKTAALIK, lived about 375 million years ago, give or take a couple of years; fossils show a skeleton that proves without question that the fish (because of course we’re talking about a fish!) regularly made excursions on terra firma.
Now, dear readers, hang on to your hats! Read more…
A couple of weeks ago, Sylvain from the SCFlyshop contacted us to talk about his website. Ouch, one more guy who wants to sell fishing stuff on the web… A short visit on the website and the message on the frontpage intrigues me: “selling a selection of flytying products that I use to tie my flies”. Allright buddy, then bring it on, show me. A couple of days later, we received a selection of flytying products from Sylvain.
From the opening of the package, I understood that I had what I was hoping for: a selection of products that smell fish. Sylvain is a flyfisherman. Who has spent a lot of his time by the river, and knows what searching for the right fly means. What “trying to make the difference” means. The products have been selected because they are essential for some of them, or because they can bring this small plus for the demanding fly tier. The tinted copper wire is simply gorgeous. The CDC is of very high quality. Moreover, the prices are very interesting, particularly for the hooks. In Sylvain’s approach, there is a true willing to share his passion. The website deserves to grow a little bit, but this is only the beginning.
Long life to the SCFlyshop. Thanks to you, I’ve seen myself by the river, putting a freshly tied new CDC dryfly, aiming at a grayling. And it didn’t happen to me for while.
Recently we said that the Niklaus Bauer Pike tubes were available in France. Easyfly goes one step further with the fly box that should come with them! A big fly box to store big buddies, with the colors of the Vision Big Daddy products. Good stuff for pike fly fishers!
A few months ago when the Minister of Ecology presented himself at our offices, we immediately stopped picking our noses and gamboling with our secretaries; even Cyril managed to momentarily stop farting.
I have to confess that this impromptu visit really had us flabbergasted. Read more…
Not fishing related but surely good energy ! This Nuyorican Salsa selection from the 1970s, hosted by Christian Mártir. (free download)
The right stuff ! The real music from el barrio (Bronx, Spanish Harlem) where the sons of latin imigrants created a new sound to gathered and danced to.
Whenever I travel people ask me : What about France for fishing, is it good ? Well if ever you want an enthusiasm answer it has to be written in the past, but we still have amazing landscapes and lost paradise valley. That is why at the “hashtag” time (Instagram, Twitter) we are creating today our #MadeInFrance section to promote what is already the most visited country on earth… but not for trout !
Thanks to Benoit Chancerel for this DIY movie.
No matter what, we have to be honest, a good pop/rock song anf a big fish makes a happy time!
It’s the beginning of the big fish and big flies season! We can start casting tandem flies hoping for the jackpot, the one that justifies hours of reflexion on where we can find them, the approach, the gear… the one living in us.
Thank you Thomas!
To all of you, have a good automn/winter season!
