Fishing in Limousin (1/8): discover street fishing in the center of Limoges

Put away the picture of the white-haired hunter: hat, sneakers, smartphone, welcome to the world “Street Hunting” (City Hunting) With the youth of Limoges.

On this stormy day, Gabriel (17), Jean (14), Eloy (15) and Louis (14) arranged to meet me at Pont Saint-Etienne at the foot of the historic center of Limoges. These kilometers from the banks of the Vienna River, including the “No Murder” track (Read below), it’s their favorite stadium, (almost) like Fortnite!

Despite their young age, they are all very experienced at the water’s edge: “Fisher since the age of six,” Jean smiles; Gabriel “had a Youtube channel even if it’s not up to date”; Eloy like Lewis and their companions “attended almost all the courses of Julian, of the Hunting Union, to learn”. Julian Barrett, who is in charge of development at the Hot Vienne Union, is still filling it in a bit but “You’ll see, it’s good and you’ll learn from it!”, he promised.

“We love Vienna”

In fact. We hadn’t finished crossing the bridge when Jane was already yelling “Fish!”. From the medieval business, footing on an oyster shell in the path of this pilgrim, the boy threw a small piece. In sight: “I threw my temptation right in front of him and saw him pounce on her!” The main thing remains, to fight against the fish to get them out of the water. Julian advises: “Don’t go too hard, you risk hurting him.” Two minutes later, Gabriel came as reinforcements, and advanced to Vienna with the landing net. Put in more effort, encouraged by all his friends, and Jane can claim victory and “My Chop Record!” Gently, he holds what he picked up for the traditional portrait, then releases it. It’s clear to his youth.
