One day one fish in the Midi-Pyrenees (South-Western France Part 3)

The majestic Lot River valley in the Midi-Pyrenees, South-West France.

A page of the finished article titled 'One day one fish'.

The long awaited publication of one of my South-Western France fishing articles is finally here. In fact, I had to wait a few long months to get to see the actual hard copy of the published article in Rod&Line magazine (Malaysia). In a away, my friends in France, David Mailland and Sylvain Garza had to wait a few more days after that to receive the copies of the magazines. Thank you for your patience guys!

The fishing at the upper-Lot with tournament angler Sylvain Garza (Illex) and David Mailland (Luckycraft, France).

For those of you who’ve read the article in R&L, it’s mainly about my experience fishing in the majestic River Lot in the scenic Midi-Pyrenees in the South-West of France with current Luckycraft France sponsored angler David Mailland and tournament angler Sylvain Garza of Illex. Even though we’ve only managed one fish in between the three of us, it was one hell of an experience for me (I'll let the pictures do the talking).

Bluebird skies in pike country, but where have all the fish gone?

Bottom jigging near the weir. No fish here either.

The saviour of the day, David with the one fish of the day. It's all worth it.

And now that the finished article is out, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to David and Sylvain for their time and gracious hospitality. I look forward to fishing with you guys in the near future!
