As you may have noticed over the last couple of years, we have a special bond with sightfishing the nymph in France, targetting difficult fish at the end of the season. In these conditions, fishing requires lots of precision and discretion if you want to have a chance to catch some trout. Read more “Gold Rush Zebra Trout in France! We’re back!”
After arriving at Castlehamilton late in the evening, it was too late to inflate and arrange our new keeper float tubes.
PIKE ON THE SURFACE !

The fourth day of our stay, is eternalised in my mind. We decided to fish a bigger lake today, on which we did quite well last year.
Wether one can call 4 years a tradition or not, targeting Dutch pike at the Polders has become a yearly thing for us at Rodtrip.
Two years have passed since the last time we went to France to fish the gorgeous zebra trouts of the Albarine.
The call of the clear water river was so strong that last Wednesday, we decided, Mathias and me, to go meet her again.

The end of 2015 is approaching on us, which is a good reason for Marc Petitjean, world-famous fly-dresser, to announce the release of his “Swiss vise 25th Anniversary – Limited Edition 1990-2015”.
One more time, like every year since 3 years now, we visit the polders in The Netherlands. It has become our usual trip of the end of the year, so far, because we have been really tempted by an other pike destination this time… next year maybe !
