Official Pocono's fly testing

Last week I swapped flies with Pocono,he sent me a nice box,with his favorite flies and all the recipes.So today I decided to test some.
I didn't have much time today and the wind was high(80kmph) but I went fishing with my friend J Marc to our nearest spot 15 m from home we call Cambous Bridge.It was hard because of the wind and the fish were extremely suspicious so we didn't catch many.I tried Pocono's dry flies,after missing a very big one I could land a nice one on his Adams.We caught smaller ones and JM missed a huge one on nymph...he didn't wait for the wide mouth to close....and striked when it was wide open...and wide it was!
Pocono's flies are now officially endorsed

I think the reality is probably closer to the fact that J-P and his friend J-M are such accomplished trout fishermen that they could probably catch their limit on bare hooks!

Thanks for the pics!

Great to see pics from France !

Is the Adams a pattern that is fished much in France/Europe? Are there patterns that are widely used in Europe, but
not here, and vice versa?

There are patterns from the US, and France that are new to me, the Adams is a very well known pattern over here and efective too

Chris....the river maybe...not the fish I'm afraid... no trout here!except some stocked rainbows which could escape the "viandars"( meaters?) but there are big chubs and subtle daces
