Fred Lombard (France)

Fred has been a kayaker for over 35 years. He lives in a remote valley in the Pyrenees at an altitude of 1200m, in an old sheepfold on the banks of a trout stream. When he is not in his kayak on the Pyrenean streams, it is in this unique setting that he lives his two other passions: artisanal fly rod assembler and shepherd. A kayak fisherman and a real lover of rivers, he started fly fishing 20 years ago on the great Chilean rivers, then, after seeing trout run under his boat, he decided to set up his own canoe-fishing itinerary guide company to combine two worlds which, in France, hardly ever meet.
