During the last year, we were less active on the website. We were working hard on the new Rodtrip website and unfortunately it took longer than expected.Read more “Our new website is live !”
When we google for reviews on new materials, rods, reels and accessories, we always tend to ask ourselves: did they really test it or are we watching an unboxing video?

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.

After arriving at Castlehamilton late in the evening, it was too late to inflate and arrange our new keeper float tubes.
Whenever a planned trip is getting closer, I become obsessed for tying lots of flies. I’m so thrilled that I tie so many types of flies, that some of them will not even end up at my leader.
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.
Last evening our French friends had some success in this lake, fishing lures from the shore, with a 90+cm mixed in. We decided to give it a try with our flies.
We’ve worked on a new series of fly tying videos, as the season has now started, the first one is a pike fly…
We call it “La Glace à l’eau / Water Ice Cream”, you will understand why !
