    Default Fishing with a wizzard

    Today I went fishing in a little lake with my old friend the Fischmeister.It was really bad,too warm for November,the wind was changing all the time,no flies on the surface,the fish seemed asleepI struggled to catch some fish but didn't manage to catch a big one.I saw the Fischmeister going up the side slope and he started walking slowly around the lake to locate fish...he went down the side slope twice...and caught two big bows...but as I've already told you this man is a wizzard




    p1 the lake when we arrived....p4 ....when we left

    Excellent J.P.

    Your friend dresses like me, I have no doubt he is not accidentally catching fish. Camouflage can make your day.

    Nice! I've met a few wizards, but never one in camo . That lake looks
    great. Are those trout stocked?

    Speaking of camo, my son is in the USAF, and has some really fantastic
    GoreTex field jackets, with various linings, and in different styles. I've been
    telling him to run over to clothing issue to get something in my size, but he's
    failed to do so......

    Very nice pics JP...I'm assuming that is a man made lake? Are they public water or private? Beautiful looking rainbows...

    You're right Dan,it's what we call a "ballastière"It was dug to extract gravel and sand for building,as it's usually located by a river it fills with water and becomes a little lake .This one is a private water it was stocked with bows but there are also other fish for instance huge carps.

    Not that I think Carp are a good thing in a trout lake but you should try getting hold of one of them JP. Not just like a salmon but if you hook a lively one it'll be exciting.

    Ard,Carp were not stocked....they came here ...naturally But I knew another lake the owner had stocked with"amour" (it's a kind of carp which eats weeds) to clean it.My friends JM and Batistou have already caught carp on nymph....I haven't....they frighten me
