I started fishing at a very early age, and have been fishing trout by casting from 1990, fly fishing from 1994 and sometimes using the traditional "pêche au toc". Colombières is in the north west of the Hérault region in the upper valley of the Orb River. Although very much Mediterranean in atmosphere, the area is a sharp contrast with the coast, with its green mountains


Watercourse

• River Orb: Very varied, from its source on the southern rim of the Causse du Larzac to its mouth in Valras Plage (1st and 2nd category), and all kinds of fishing for a wide variety of fish are possible.
• Rivers : The Jaur and the Mare nearby and the the Agoût (30 min) and Sorgue (45 min) offer a magnificent variety of spots for fishing, and trout are to be found in all of them. Just a little further afield, the reputation of the Vis Gorges has spread all over France and they are well worth a visit.
• Montain stream:they leap down the sharp slopes of Mont Caroux (1091m), alternating waterfalls and chasms on their way down to the Orb (250m). In Colombières, the Arles and Madale are excellent with magnificent trout. These are spots that are reserved for the fittest, however!
• Predatory fish (pike, zander and perch): the Lac du Salagou, Hérault River and other little-known sites...

Short delivery

These include the guide, technical advice, transport to the fishing location and loan of the equipment if necessary. The fishing licence is at your expense, but the Hérault belongs to the Club Halieutique. If you do not have a licence, I can go and pick it up before your arrival.




Fly casting lesson (2 hours):
on the grass or in the water, I will introduce you to the techniques and gestures of this kind of fishing before you set out on your own. It may not be much of a thrill, but it is the necessary starting point for beginners.
• Evening outing (2-3 hours): a magical moment for dry fly anglers, if there is hatching going on. Interpreting the river, approaching the fish, fly presentation, techniques and gestures and notions of entomology are all included in the programme (the same applies to the following packages).
• Half Day (4 hours) : morning or evening. Identical programme. All techniques possible.
• Whole Day (8 hours) : A snack with local produce is provided. Choice of techniques.

Intrenships

I can propose three different types of course: weekend courses on the one hand, and week-long courses on the other with either 5 whole days of fishing or 5 half days if you prefer to make the most of your stay to visit the region. I can lend you the equipment if you tell me in advance. All-inclusive (fishing, accommodation, meals), personalised packages are available from Gîtes de France Hérault.

• Week-ends :
after a hard week at work, what could be better than to get away from it all for a weekend beside the water alone or with friends. You will arrive on Friday evening and we will sort out the equipment and fishing permit... That leaves two days for fishing on Saturday and Sunday in the best spots the area has to offer.

• Weekly packages : How about a short fishing holiday in a region where the sun shines 300 days a year? You arrive on Saturday, sort out the equipment and fishing permits, and then we are ready to go... five whole or half days of fishing in the magnificent setting of the Haut Languedoc Regional Park.

In five days, you will have time to try out quite a few of the local fishing possibilities: torrents, streams, rivers and perhaps even a mountain lake. You will also have time to try out different techniques. The choice is yours...!
PS: I can also serve as a guide for fishing trips elsewhere in France or abroad (groups of 2 to 4 anglers).
