French regulars enjoy fantastic accommodation and great fishing for their annual carp fishing in France holiday.

This week we welcomed Colin and Monica to our small French angling paradise. Colin loved all the information and videos on the website and came well prepared to tackle the venue properly. Only one big catfish got the better of him at 3am one night which is very good going at this time of year. He also couldn’t believe how hard our carp fight. He hooked into one that he swore would turn out to be a 40lb to 50lb catfish but changed into an upper twenty just before being netted! They also made the most of the location of the venue. They fished hard each night but went out on day trips most days to the towns of Vitre and Laval. It’s always a delight to welcome guests that love the place and the way we run it. I’m sure we’ll be seeing them in the future!
