    Dennis,you know I'm a bit old school so my movies are silentStill looking forward to see your girlfriend and you fishingMore seriously I quite understand your point of view and you're right for trout...but chub have a different behaviour ...they seldom stay for long at the same place unless there's a good hatch which is getting rare .
    Allan ...you know this place...and I have to make you catch big guys next time you come
    Fishfish....sometimes you catch many fish sometimes ...they're not willing to bite...if we could catch as many fish as we want we would soon be fed up,wouldn't we?

    Ummmmm...........is this a trick question? I'll take a few more fish each time out, thank you very much, and I won't complain a bit! It's just a matter of adjusting your "wants".

    Very nice JP, I was never one to complain about a big chub.

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    I never complain either Ard ,leuciscus cephalus or squalis cephalus now is a very interesting fish to catch...he's very spooky and his sight is better than a trout's...but his mouth is bigger so it's easier to see it opening and closing when he takes the nymphin places where both species live they're the sentries of the the river...my friend Batistou sometimes wonder if they have eyes on their backs

    JB, That Madjoni, looks a lot like the grass carp i have been trying to catch locally. (Are they related?) Got a photo of the fly were you using?

    Not quite sure I quite understand your question...Madjoni is a forum member
    The fish on the pics and videos are chub...they look a bit like carp but are less massive with a big head and a big mouth(cephalus)their behaviours are very different.
    On that day we were using a black"chub special" nymph and a very simple black foam dry created by my friend Batistou.
    You can see some of the flies I often use here:Flies from Across the Pond

    Whups, sorry.
    I read post #6 wrong, I mistakenly thought you were calling the fish a Madjoni.

    Well, Charged, if you got Madjoni to take one of your flies and he made a run for it, you'd better be using at least a 15 wt with a Mako reel, or you're gonna get spooled for sure!

    Cheers,
    Jim
