This experience is almost unique in France, I am the last professional fisherman in Bordeaux and invites you to accompany me on my boat 'Les Tontons Flingours' with white shrimp fishing or yellow eel from the pontoon of the City of wine. We will start from the Ponton de la Cité du Vin (in the gardens of the Cité du Vin) and I think fishing in Bordeaux itself and in the immediate vicinity of the city. You will discover my job, my secrets, the river, its fauna, its flora and of course the famous squares (traditional fishing huts) I would fish in front of you, and explain to you how I make my traps, how I fish and to sell My catches. You can buy me my catches or taste them on the boat with a local aperitif (on order and with supplement) This walk in small group will be for you and your children the opportunity to discover the river and learn a lot about my secular job.


I am the last professional river fisherman in Bordeaux. I suggest you accompany me with yellow eel fishing or white shrimp that I practice in a traditional way on the Garonne, at the start of the Cité du Vin with traps that I make myself. My boat is approved for the transport of 12 passengers, and has all the safety equipment. For these walks, I only take 6 to 8 people in order to present to you aspects of the river that you could hardly imagine. I will make you discover my job, as well as the fauna and flora of the Garonne ... We will take the opportunity to go see the famous Carrelets, these huts of peaches perched by the river. If you wish, you can buy me my fishing.
