Guided fishing in Provence.
Bonjour Nick. I had a fantastic time last night. The fishing, scenery and
most importantly, the guiding, were all first class. Your man is a real
professional, accomplished and pleasant both. If he fished at all, and I'm
not sure he did, it was only after taking excellent care of his clients. In
my experience, it is the guides who don't fish while guiding who we clients
would love to see fish and the opposite is also true! Thus the experience
between La Sorgue and last night was as we say, chalk and cheese!
I will definitely be contacting you again. Thank you for
your organization, Cheers,Peter.

Our guide, knows stretches of easy access and others really tricky, some of them needing ropes to join the fishing place. Easy or tricky, they are all beautiful. Depending on your physical shape we can offer outings for all levels. We can also sometimes organize night camps to the most remote stretches...
The Verdon offers excellent Fly Fishing conditions. The surrounding is almost only mineral, no tree spoils your casting. The waters are very clear allowing to often see the fish you target. The river is full of boulders producing countless trouty hides and currents. All techniques are used from dry fly, to nymph and small streamers.
Chest waders are recommended. Any trout rod from 8,5 to 10 feet can be used. Light lines wt 3/4, are ideal for dry fly.
