Stroll on Bérence creek

I enjoyed this week of an afternoon bathed in sunlight to get a ride on the banks of the Bérence, a local creek which I like and where I have been doing some fishing trips for many years. Over the years I unfortunately could only note the deterioration of the general condition of the stream that is increasingly jammed with the inevitable consequence of siltation of many sectors deserted by trouts.

Saddened by this sight I walked away and went up through the woods.

Despite some recent rainfall and the temperature which is relatively high for the season I did not find any edible mushroom. As in many beech forest mucosal collybie (oudemansiella mucida) is probably the most frequent species and it would not come to my mind to eat that!

Tenkara Fly Angles

A few days ago Anthony Naples, editor of Casting Around blog and manager of Three Rivers Tenkara tackle shop, asked me if I wanted to participate in a series of articles about tenkara flies or kebari if you prefer and I of course accepted with pleasure.
I have always liked what Anthony has been doing for several years now as a tenkara blog editor and I am sincerely honored to be a part of this series. If you are interested by my guest post please click here

In case you do not know Anthony's blog yet, perhaps some of you are from Venus!, I am sure that you will like what you find in it because it is a great blog.
