Patrick Taillard, fishing guide

A man - a passion


I spent my youth fishing the banks of the lower valley of the Dordogne, and I've been passionate about fly fishing for some thirty years. I've travelled extensively in France and the rest of Europe in my enthusiasm for fly fishing. I settled in stunning regions like Camargue, Correze, Lot, Cantal, Cévennes and Basque Country to fully immerse myself as a professional fishing monitor and guide. It is here in these unique and beautiful areas where I invite you to share some outstanding moments and my passion for fishing the local waters..
