Ian & Adrian March 21st – 28th November 10, 2010
What a session, seven days and nights of sheer heaven in the carp fishing world.
For a first trip to France this was an experience that we had only dreamed of. We had heard of many horror stories with these French trips but this was not one of them. In fact the nights were so busy with hauling carp on to the bank we pulled the rods in for two nights just to get some kip.
On arrival at Ian’s house we were welcomed with a cuppa, shown some photo’s of the lake residents and we received some lake advice that proved invaluable. First fish was on the bank within 2 hours, from that point they kept on coming. Mostly from casting to showing fish, however, we managed to get two areas working on a consistent basis so the bait was trickled in frequently to keep the fish in the area; these produced steadily all week but took a total of 43Kg of bait to keep it going.
The final tally for the week amounted to 1643Lb of carp and cats consisting of 76 fish:
New carp PB’s for both of us, a New Lake Record of 48lb 5oz for Adrian and the first 40’s out in 2009.)
2 x 40′s
8 x 30’s
37 x 20’s
29 x doubles
Ian has created a fantastic lake that was a joy to fish so we will be back to get more of the same.
