In spring 1996, The World Fly Fishing Championship was held in the Czech Republic and the domestic Czech team won the contest. At that time I did not know anything about competitive fly fishing, but the articles written by Karel Krivanec, which followed the event, opened new horizons for me. I was eagerly reading articles, cut them out from the magazines and glued them into my notepad. Besides successful patterns from the Championship, Karel told me various stories many times. Karel mentioned the fact that Pascal Cognard from France, who was three times World Champion, was fishing for graylings with a dry fly and a little nymph hung under the fly. He called it “to small gallows”, and this was my very first contact with the method that enchanted me.
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.
