I have now fished 11 of the 22 Regions ‘de France’ and caught trout in nine of them, and I have caught trout in 12 of the 16 Departments I have fished, and from sixteen rivers. This season, I added Pas de Calais and Haute Marne to my list of Departments…I must try harder!

So for this year, and to my French guiding friends, thank you for showing me your special ‘places’ and advising, teaching and helping me enjoy our wonderful past time on your beautiful streams…so thank you, Marc, Michael, Thierry (I have to fish the Sioule again), and Christophe.

Voyez vous en 2017…merci encore.
