Paris: Fishing

The City of Lights

Paris Fishing

Fishing on the banks of the Seine is a favourite pastime for both visitors and Parisians and is a popular subject for scores of French artists. Like its counterpart east of Paris (the Bois de Vincennes), the Bois de Boulogne just west of the city is another place where Parisians go to breathe and enjoy spacious green surroundings. The Bois de Boulogne is a lyrical expanse of greenery and calm where fishing can make you feel like you're far away from the urban blight.
