Spend a morning fishing in one of Provence's most beautiful lakes or rivers. Experienced sportsmen will marvel at the natural beauty of the countryside, while beginners will learn how to assemble the rod, use the various lures, cast, and, with a little luck, catch some pike, perch or carp. You will need to be equipped with clothing suitable for the weather and sturdy, comfortable shoes that you dont mind getting wet.
Accommodation is arranged at a bed and breakfast or hotel nearby.
The arrival at the fishing grounds around Les Pastras is followed by a short history of the area and explanation of the equipment you will be using. A fishing license is required, which will be provided. You will use a rod and reel with different types of bait such as plastic lures and spoon lures to catch pike, perch and other fresh water white fish. An outdoorsman's aperitif, including bread, sausage, pat, tapenade and red wine (juice for kids), will be served. After putting away the equipment, a last glass of wine will be poured out to toast new friendships.
