Fishing on the Frontier – Part 38: The New Frontier

Throughout this series, I have tried to bring a glimpse of what is going on at the frontier of fly fishing for trout & grayling, though have not really explored other developments, such as fly fishing for other species and, notably, salt water.

In fact, I have caught in the Rhone river grayling over 50 cm and one huge specimen of 60 cm! Bigger than the ones from Slovenia or from Lapland where I have been fly fishing several times. For grayling, you can choose to explore the Rhone, the Rhin or the famous Dordogne near Bergerac.
