Fly fishing is undoubtedly the richest fishing technique that exists as the aspects to be mastered are varied. Starting alone with the fly can quickly become discouraging. Julien will be able to give you the right advice to start and learn to fish correctly. As for those who are already fly fishermen, it is surprising to note that the full potential of fishing is not exploited. And again, a guide will reveal you and allow you to optimize your fishing technique, whether in dry, drowned the various nymph fishing techniques.

About your guide



Amoureux de ma région, de sa nature brute et parfois rude, je mettrais mes sept années d'expériences de guide de pêche à votre service. Avant tout technicien, je ne laisse rien au hasard de ce côté là. Que vous veniez apprendre à pêcher à la mouche, que vous désiriez vous perfectionner aux appâts naturels ou traquer le sandre en verticale en automne, je vous apporterai les clés pour réussir vos parties de pêche.
Jeune, adulte, débutant ou confirmé, j'adapterai mon discours pour vous permettre de mieux progresser et vous faire partager les moments magiques que procure la pratique de la pêche.

The program in details

A typical day usually starts around 9:00 am and ends with the seasons and conditions around 7:00 pm. Sometimes, even, the night dawning is such that fishing can continue until the legal time! The fishing spot will be chosen according to the flow conditions, between Puy-de-Dôme and Cantal on one of the following rivers: Sioule and tributaries, Dordogne and tributary, Chavanon, Rhue and tributaries, Couzes du Sancy, Alagnon, Truyère, Allier. ..

INITIATION: A day of intense and complete initiation

- Point on the material, the different actions of fishing rod and the characteristics, the reel, the profiles of silk, the various bottom of line.

- The categories of flies, aspect entomological (emergence, family of insects ...), assembly of its first fly.

- The most important thing: the cast. Without casting, no fly fishing. 

A meal break cuts the day in half. It is also an opportunity to make a point on the mounting of flies, entomology or other theoretical points.

For a good start, Julien strongly advises you to extend your initiation course on two days. 


You already fly fish but you have difficulties under certain conditions, to fish certain positions, to master some cast ... a day of improvement is used to overcome technical and strategic difficulties around the theme of fly fishing.

J'ai passé une superbe journée de guidage avec Julien dans le Cantal, étant débutant j'ai pu profiter de ses précieux conseils ce qui m'a fais gagner pas mal de temps sur l'apprentissage de cette technique qui demande beaucoup de travail au départ. Il a été un très bon professeur et j'envisage même de revenir le
voir pour un stage de perfectionnement, vraiment au top !!
