Lac Du Charlou was purchased at the beginning of 2005 knowing that it had bag loads of potential to become a truly stunning location to bivvy up at and catch some very big carp. So, that is what we set out to do, and have now achieved our goal after a lot of hard graft, travelling, and also parting with a lot of hard earned money. The lake was named Lac Du Charlou after our two daughters, Charlotte and Louise, lucky beggars! Having been carp fishing to France enough times to know what, for me, makes a great week for a carper I wanted to put it in to practice by supplying this at a sensible cost, and enjoying it along the way by making it a week to remember for every visitor. We have now achieved our aim to provide a superb fishery with some stonking carp and faultless surroundings. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Nf2E62L9-k This stunning sixteen acre gravel pit has clear blue water, excellent for your photos, and is tree lined around the entire lake set within 24 acres of beautiful French woodland and countryside. There are some lovely views across the lake to lay and gaze at from your bivvy […]

Etang de Cherry is a 55 acre lake set in a 100 acre plot but don’t be daunted by the size as there’s a 3 acre island in the middle that acts as a carp ’round-about’ meaning all anglers can fish to the island and the carp won’t shoal up in one spot! There are 15 swims of which 7 are doubles giving the angler plenty of choice if wishing to stalk or move swims. Please see Lake Map for more details. There is a purpose built gravel track that runs all the way around the lake meaning you can park behind your swim in comfort although unless wishing to move off site for touring or supplies we ask that your vehicle remains parked behind your swim throughout your stay and that if moving your vehicle for any reason you stick to the track. What makes this venue unique is the fish growth due to the depths of the water. Ranging from 4ft to 9ft over a large expanse of water means the water temperature remains warmer for longer thus extending both the fishing and growing season. The grounds are kept as natural as possible leaving just gravel around each […]

Carp Fishing in France BMP Carp Fisheries – Lake Perigny la Rose Périgny la Rose is situated in the Champagne-Ardennes region, near Epernay. This area of France is more than famous for every angler as it was the former bed of the river Seine. The route to the venue is mostly motorway, very straight forward, and should take about 3 1/2 hours from Calais. The lake is about 13 acres in size, which has been established approximately 18 years. During the last few years, Mr. Dollat (Mayor of Perigny la Rose) with his team have refurnished this pit and made all the banks available for fishing. The lake is totally secured with a fence covering the full 15 acres of land. There is a track that goes all around the perimeter. The swims are well spaced out, with grassy areas for bivvies and rods. The banks are very smooth, which give you the opportunity to fish anywhere you like. The lake bed, in true gravel pit style, is anything but flat with gravel bars, deep holes and plateaus all over the place. Bait boats are allowed on this venue and could be an advantage for precise baiting and presentation. There […]

The Dream Story – Lac Des Lesmont My other half has always dreamed about owning his own carp fishery in France, after being out here now for ten years, this is how it all started. A few opportunities had popped up in the past but due to work commitments, kids, locations and lake sizes, it was never quite the right time. But then back in April 2004 he received a phone call that set the “alarm bells” ringing and the next day he had a bag packed and was off to France in the stunning Champagne area. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZIjMU950hc He was hooked from the moment he arrived, with the travelling distance being very convenient and the property set in a rural area, he was now excited to have a look at the lake itself. And wow what a lake, with its natural surroundings and original stock of large carp it was absolutely breath taking. After returning back to England just a couple of days later, Andy was full of smiles and excitement and lots to chat about, I knew he was keen to get back out there again for another viewing. So only 3 days later the bags where packed again, […]

Gigantica has been named fittingly, to represent the huge carp that swim within its depths. The lake has already exceeded our wildest expectations. When we took over the lake in 2008, it was badly managed, too many anglers, uncomfortable swims, poor facilities, rigs and baits dropped by boats, and the fish had nowhere to hide, coupled with poor quality bait being introduced. The transformation in the last few years has to be seen and experienced to be believed. Our long-term goal was to create a fishery with just giant carp, this dream is becoming more of a reality with every passing year. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YXg10FQ-opE Gigantica is and will always be a serious carp water for the dedicated carp angler wishing to fish a ‘proper’ lake with plenty of room. Since our ownership of the venue we have even dropped the maximum number of anglers down from 26 to only 10. The reformation of this wonderful lake has seen fish experience huge growth rates, with several fish gaining as much as 15lbs between captures. With an estimated 600 carp present there are plenty to go at, however the quantity is still somewhat unknown, with previously unrecognised carp to over 50lbs still popping […]
