Translation by Geoffrey Stearns.

At the beginning of August, I had the pleasure of welcoming Alain, a fisherman from Switzerland who had arranged to spend a two-week vacation in the Aude. Since Ariège is its bordering department, and very close, I offered him the Vicdessos (a tributary of the Ariège river).

Alain had been fly fishing for 4 years. The order of the day was to introduce him to a new technique, “Euro nymphing”, and he had a very nice initiation with real progress made throughout the day.

The fish weren’t at all active, either in the morning or in the afternoon. However, that gave us a good opportunity to seriously practice all the basic elements and actions required to be effective in this technique, which at first glance can appear simple, but which is actually full of subtleties!

It was only around 5:00 p.m. that I put my smartphone in video mode, in order to capture Alain, sharpened by a whole day of training, with trout, which, as if by magic, had switched “On” for a couple of hours.

Below is the video of that end of the day session…
