YESTERDAY, tuesday ...I went visiting at longlast my 'beloved' little river 'running' in the Northern part of France (reasons known)...
and so yesterday was a 'highlightning' day...and not only for reasons I encountered the whole day long..... a 'hard tapping' SUN and extreme high temperatures.
As most of the time...not a easy flyfishing overthere on my 'small chalk river' ...with allmost every fish who had searched shelter ....and and and when not 'actif' are easely spooked by every 'wrong step' or mouvement (for instance with fish YOU didn't had spot yet - own bank or far bank or or or as said not seen yet in the gin clear water)
And yes I had my dear friend "FROGGIE" as a loyal compagnon with me.
Anyway enjoy the 'atmosphere' photos (wich unfortunatly had to 'crimp' down - so some are only so and so)...and yes in the 'end' I was happy I could bring exactly ONE nice :
'LADY OF THE STREAM' (a Europan grayling) to small piece of waterweed into the bank.
PS...the fish was taken on the very popular and deadly...classic FRENCH (dry) 'pattern' listening to the name of "PEUTE" invented by Henri Bresson...(a pattern I gifted a bit of my 'own' twitch I must confess....and this with not clipping the 'hen breast duck feather' and also putting on and IN ...some CDC in the wing (a mix of yellow and dun CDC I use)...euh also CDC isn't sitting in the original pattern. I have to search for the real but then realy small 'hen duck breastfeathers' to can tie them reasonably small. PEUTE's are fished like American's fish the "HORNBERG"...but my pattern I tie ofcourse 'bigger' tooooooooooo...
PS...will 'crimp' a couple of photo's of my own "PEUTE'sssssss"...and will launch them 'underneath' - wink !!!
