Dear friends exhibitors at the Charleroi fair,
It is with deep sadness that we have to inform you of the decease of Mr. Jacques Lagauche, secretary and linchpin of our club, but also one of the most important organizers of our wonderful fair.
He left us on the7th of September to go fishing on the rivers in the fly fishermen's paradise. The committee and the members of the Club of Charleroi will do everything in their power to ensure the continuity of his tremendous efforts to promote our beautiful passion.
We look forward to seeing you all again and to remembering him.
With regard to the viability of the fair, a decision will be taken at the end of October depending on the then current safety regulation and you will be informed as soon as possible.

In 2015, my friend Stan, who had previously translated my book on the Czech nymph into French, published another interesting book on nymphing (La peche en nymphe moderne avec les mouches de céramique), Because it reveals some French secrets in it, I allowed myself to publish the translation some parts for other friends of nymphing. However, it should be borne in mind that in the five years since the publication of this book, some things may have changed a bit. K.K.

Advantages of sight nymphing
Let’s sum up the advantages of the three other nymphing methods that we explored before :
- Czech nymphing is adapted to agitated waters
- Klink and dink allows you to double your chances to catch fish
- French nymphing allow you to fish rippled waters with discretion

Session Two and the draw would play a crucial role in obtaining a good result. I was bound for the Meander river, a medium sized wenue with a deceptively powerful flow and clear water, well populated with wild browns, but not always equally distributed, as is the norm in river-based sessions, and particularly apparent in the early season Tasmanian rivers. I reconed that I´d need at least ten fish from the session.
My beat was number 4, a good draw as it turned out, with around 400 m of generally very fishy looking water on a fair gradient that created lots of pocket-water over a large substrate bottom. The beat was split about two-thirds of way up by a high bluff that made the access a bit tricky in places, but as I surveyed the water, I was quite hopeful for a good session. Although we had no snow today, the unpleasant conditions persisted with a very strong wind blowing.
