This Spring is bizarre…
My visit to the Massif Central and my hopes of catching a fario, or two, in Allier, Puy de Dome, and Cantal have been defeated by the weather.
Every river I studied was high, fast and coloured. It rained the night of my stay at ‘Le Beau Site d’Auvergne’ and whilst mine host encouraged, the forecast for the next two days was for more, so I abandoned my hopes for a Sioule trout, and for the second time. My guide, Thierry Millot was understanding, and my justifications were magnified en route south by what I drove through –
It’s May, for Christ sake!!
So my fishing adventure, driving through France, to our place near Cannes, which I have enjoyed and with some success, every one of the past five years, and with no small thanks to a number of great guides (you know who you are!), this year, has not happened.
Thank you for your understanding, Thierry…may it will be ‘third time lucky’?
