Very successful fishing holiday with another nice haul of big carp this week from our 4 acre English style estate lake in North West France

This week we welcomed back a team from Dynamite Baits who were keen to test some of their bait on our resident carp and catfish. Chris struck gold first night when he landed our most sought after carp Grey Scar from the Island Point swim and got his new PB at 44lbs 8oz. This carp managed to avoid capture for the entire season last year and it was great to see him making an appearance for one lucky customer. Duncan was very close to banking a 2nd forty in the same week but unfortunately the scales had other ideas and settled 8oz under the magic mark. The north wind, clear skies and high pressures didn’t help the fishing but all the guys walked away with at least a mid thirty. It was a pleasure to welcome them back and we look forward to seeing them in the future.
