Being close to the Dordogne River and tributary mountain streams and also the Vezere river, a shop that caters to anglers and hunters is a logical venue in a heavily vacation visitor laden city. The window display was very attractive, but the only thing French was the basket.

What to buy: We were warned by our (Bass Master) fisherman-hunter son that 1) fishing is a global sport and the latest lure made in Finland is immediately available in Little Rock, AR, USA and 2) a fisherman is very specific about things like lures and equipment and only listens to the fish and other experienced fishermen. We would have bought the colorful shirt but he (>100kg; 6'5") is XXXL, a size not stocked in French stores. (Incidentally the shirt and screening were created in Thailand).

Directions: Immediately across from the shopping mall that once was the church of Ste.-Marie, on the street off the square.
