Smile Team Fishing

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!
Video 1 Batistou landing a big chub...you may notice he's rather tall(6,5')
Video 2....releasing the same guy

Cool JB team fishing is a blast. On our trip to RMNP we utilized the technique. Works great when you can spot from a cliff.

It's not rare to catch fish over 20' there are some over 25'.

Cool pic Yat...how can you land fish from up there?

Madjoni...as there are less and less trout .... they make room for chub and dace

Hi JP,
I wonder what all that ruckus was when I previewed the videos. Team tactics are very helpful. Sometimes they aren't. The last time my girlfriend and I used them was not very successful. Two weeks ago, we were fishing for some wild Rainbow Trout, and we found a lot of them scattered around. We threw the usual flies and some new ones at them. I even seined the river! They would not take. It took us awhile to figure out what was going on. They were just sitting still until the caddis emergence happened. After that, it was game on! We stopped spotting fish and just threw some soft hackles into the feeding lanes.
