Fisheries session withPhilippe Brun

Words of passion – Philippe Brun


Tell me about your crush on Vassivière, when, how?

I am a fan! I have been fishing on Lake Vassivière for 30 years and a lot on the Millevaches plateau.

What feelings does it inspire in you?

I appreciate the lake for its setting and tranquility, its space. By the way, I don’t fish in July and August!
I like the calm, and the serenity it inspires. In addition to fishing, there are also walks and mushrooms.

A little anecdote during your fishing session in Vassivière?

During a fishing trip with my son, I cast my line and I took a rapala at the corner of my eye at the level of the eyelid. I had to go to the hospital with the rapala on my face to have it removed. Fortunately, everything ended well with a stitch


The final word?

I highly recommend this lake to all fishermen and …I have a very good address to stay: the gites of Cyrille Bailly in Nergout, facing the lake and the harbor!
