This was probably the most beautiful browntrout of my first trip to Laxa Laxardalur in northern Iceland. Unfortunately, the conditions this week where tough. Heavy rain and wind and temperatures between 5° and 7° Celsius.
A portrait of fly fisherman Nic and his deep love for the mystical River Doubs.
Drove to the backcountry of Switzerland, to visit my buddy Yanick from flytastic.net.
After unsuccessfully chasing Swiss steelhead for more than three days, we found, in a protected and hidden warm water source, a large group of spawning fish and were able to take this amazing footage.
The mystique Doubs river in the Swiss Jura is famous for its endemic zebra trout. For years, I haven’t managed to catch one of the super clever and spooky fish. It wasn’t until a friend from France, who prefers to stay anonymous, introduced me to some secrets I didn’t knew.
They say, the big, predatory trout are lurking in the dark, waiting in their hiding spots, until the time is right to strike. So, grab your head light and hit the waters? Well, not quite..
