“I had the great pleasure of fishing with Philippe on a beautiful piece of the Elorn river in June. The fishing was superb, with the most stunning wild brown trout I have ever seen and a wonderful may fly hatch. I was also privileged to fish with him on one of his beautiful local lakes (Drennec), which is set in very pretty rolling countryside, and seemed to have plenty of fish in it. We certainly had no problem catching fish in either location, and I would put my day with Philippe as one of the top 3 most enjoyable fly fishing days of my life.”

Baie de Morlaix
“I’ll never forget our day fly-fishing for sea bass in the Baie de Morlaix from Philippe’s fully equipped Carolina skiff. Drifting between the islands and over the shallows, the gin clear water made us wonder if we were in the tropics after bonefish. We fished strenuously following Philippe’s valuable advice and were rewarded with some stunning bass and a cozy lunch on board, prepared with tasty regional ingredients. We’ll be back some day!”

“Sven, the boyfriend of our daughter Sabrina and I had a lovely time on your very well equipped boat on the Bay of Morlaix for fishing sea-bass.
We caught several fish and were fantastic supplied by you with delicious organic food and beverages in this lovely part of the earth. Your great knowledge about fly fishing and your professional tuition made this day unforgettable.
I would recommend all and I would love to come back for fly fishing the sea and the rivers. Thank you very much and warm regards.
Lieber Gruß und alles Gute.”

“When I hooked up with Philippe Dolivet at the bay of Morlaix we got along great from the start. His knowledge, equipment and home-cooking made for a splendid day on the water. He knew all the right spots and corners of this beautiful bay. Many bass were hooked and released this day and we had fun pursuing them. Warmly recommended.”
Robert Boer, seabass-nut from the Netherlands
“Who would have thought that Brittany would provide my husband’s first fly fishing attempt! We spent the day with Philippe learning the techniques of casting for, and catching, trout in a stunning part of the country. His delivery, conversation and humour were greatly appreciated making the experience one of the best days of our holiday. Philippe also provided an incredibly tasty, organic, locally sourced picnic which was the perfect start to our day…we would not hesitate to recommend Philippe and hope to see him again one day!”

Lac du Drennec
“The sheltered bays of the beautiful Lac du Drennec offered plenty of possibilities for different reservoir techniques: nymph, wet and dry fly, streamer,… which all produced fish. Philippe knew exactly where we had to be to have the strong wind in our favour and selected the right flies for us. Despite the rough weather we enjoyed a great day on the banks of this very natural looking reservoir.”
Simon Desmet, Gent, Belgique
“My son and enjoyed a wonderful fly fishing experience in Brittany with Philippe in April, 2014. We are novice fly fishermen from the U.S. and Philippe provided everything we needed for a great day of fishing, including all the fishing gear and making arrangements for our lodging and transportation. Our fishing at a beautiful lake in Brittany was great and we even learned to improve our casting techniques with Philippe’s patient guidance.”
