Fly Fishing in France

A French bleak
A trip to Fleac in Poitou-Charentes, South West France, to visit family last week, provided the opportunity for a bit of fishing. My brother-in-law is lucky enough to live on the banks of a small limestone stream and I was fortunate enough to have packed my travel fly rod. A chance not to be missed! Chub, roach and bleak were plentiful and provided a few enjoyable hours of good sport on the dry fly. Not quite the monster carp or catfishing that this country is famous for but a bit of fun none the less!
