I’m lucky to have great fishing buddies and I always prefer going with a friend than fishing alone.Last week Batistou and I went on a section of the Lergue and as usual we practised what we call team fishing....It means we take two rods one with a dry one with a nymph...as we wade we can take the rod we want or we think is the most suitable in turn,sometimes the one who “feels the coup” better makes it.The one who doesn’t fish tries to locate fish or rises and gives infos( cast 3ft from the bank above the first willow branch….batistou calls it “satellite guiding”)…sometimes shouts” strike” as we fish nymph on sight when the one who’s in action can’t see very well because of reflections in the water….or is dreaming which sometimes happens.Batistou who’s a very quiet guy can get very angry at times when he gets stuck in a branch or misses a big guy…he bit the handle of his rod last week
…I’m here to calm the game down….and he’s here to spur me on when I’m a bit lazy
…That’s really great fun!
