Women Fly Fisher’s (Once they get it…..)

Women Fly Fishers Long Ago

No, nothing complicated or intriguing to say re women fly fishing. I thought the poster was symbolic of times past and those women that ventured into the sport in a place far away. Did they tag along with the ‘bums’ of the past?  They weren’t pushing a piece for Vanity Fair. They probably weren’t of celebrity status and spoon fed by some guide (least I want to believe that). Just ahead of their times and however they got there, I like it. Many of us pickup a rod to be near those we admire, love or just like to be around. The passion for this sport only ignites for one’s self once you internally get it. Once you are self contained and passionate about the experience then it doesn’t matter who led you to the water. You get it and need it.

Women Fly Fishers: Berdie Judd on the Move & Writing

Berdie Judd  has decided to move to just outside of  Salisbury, Wiltshire, UK and reside with  Charles Bradford, a well traveled researcher, who has spent much of his adult life categorizing insects and aquatic creatures in SE Europe.

Berdie recently appeared on a podcast to provide new details regarding her literary aspirations. She wants to write and publish a series of books about her travels and escapades. Judd believes that her life experiences offer up wisdom and solace for other women, who travel about in pursuit of fish, while in a predominantly male sport and business culture.

Judd was asked by the podcast moderator if her forays into nudity in France and the United States detracted from her stature as an advocate for women to enter into fly fishing competition and participate in  the marketing of the sport. Judd remarked that perhaps her critics sell women short. Judd believes women can sort out life’s ups and downs. Women understand the yearnings to experience life beyond the expected confines for most women.

Berdie Judd was asked if she had been fishing lately. She answered she had just recently fished near home on the rivers Avon and Nadder. She has slowly converted her partner, Bradford, over to fly fishing and enjoys his company exploring their new world around Salisbury in Wiltshire. Berdie and Charles are entertaining joining The Salisbury & District Angling Club. Berdie promises to keep a very low profile. We shall see……………..  Many thanks for the update Berdie.

Fly Fishing: April’s New Site

Just in case you have been tucked away in a bat cave sans Wi Fi? I think in some parts (many parts) of the fly fishing arena you could say April and have the same knowing awareness as Oprah (tsk tsk)

Damsel Flies and Day Dreams (Waiting for the Thaw)

By no means is my weather comparable to what is pounding the East. It is 30 degrees out and my rig is encased in ice this morning, a by product of freezing rain and living close to Troutdale (Oregon) and the Gorge. Temps are promised to rise to the mid 40’s by 9am. Don’t think so, but sometime soon.

So, my mind wanders to a peaceful Summer afternoon on a lake, moving about the edges with Damsels flitting about. Warmth and fruitful calculations. Observations that can be worked upon. My recent chuck and chance it forays into the Spey world are more like casting with a hood on right now, so the day dream of warmth and certainty is appealing. Only five or so more months to go…….

Berdie Judd In the Middle Again (Nudists v. Libertines)

Bertie Judd at the Pinnacle of her Career (SwittersB)

Once again, Berdie Judd, the renowned UK (Ravenglass, Cumbria) fly fisher has inserted herself amidst a cultural calamity and in her favorite haunt, of late, France. In April, I wrote of Berdie’s involvement in protests in France. This time she is caught up in the nudists v. libertines dispute in Cap d’Agde, reputedly the largest nudist colony in Europe. Press accounts are sketchy as to whether Berdie is on the side of the nudists or the libertines.

At this week’s Cap d’Agde council meeting, the protests took a more peaceful form. Old-fashioned nudists complained that they, and their children, were being confronted with “voyeurist” and “exhibitionist” behaviour, including sexual acts in public. Worse, they suggested, the “deviant” newcomers sometimes walked about in their clothes and mocked the “real” nudists.”  … “We didn’t invent partner-swapping or libertine behaviour in Cap d’Agde. This has been a social trend for 10 years,” the centre-right mayor and parliamentary deputy said. “I refuse to make value judgements on the sexual habits of other people. I can’t put a policeman behind all 40,000 nudists.” (more)

Knowing Berdie’s penchant for nudity, I would say she has sided with the nudists. Her deviation from international fly fishing competition has left a void for women fly fishers everywhere.
