Personal Best Angling
Personal Best Angling

Location:  Aquitaine, DordogneWebsite Address: www.personal-best-angling.com

Description: If its peace and quiet that you are looking for, where the only sound is the birds calling or your buzzer ringing then please read on.

From the moment you pull into the car park at Kingfisher Pools you realise it is the start of a peaceful, stress free holiday where the only hard work is getting off your bed chair to reel in another piece of history within Kingfisher Pools.

The newest addition to the personal-best-angling experience Kingfisher Pools was purchased in 1998 and is a must for the carp and pleasure angler. Whether you prefer to sit behind your buzzers, heart pounding, waiting for that large pair of lips to gulp away your floating crust, or to see that float disappear into the depths, there really is something here for every kind of angler.

Lakes: Two pools in total seclusion and we mean total seclusion. Check this out and see if you could ever find what personal-best-angling has to offer anywhere else. The upper pool is around 1.75 acres and the lower being .75 acres, both pools start at around 2ft deep and slope off to around 9ft in depth.

The upper pool is sourced by springs and a stream which runs into the bottom pool. Both pools are tree lined which makes them ideal for stalking. As major underwater surgery has taken place both lakes at Kingfisher are virtually snag free.

Stock: The top pool has a firm bottom with the odd silt pocket here and there. The pool is highly stocked with grass, common and mirror carp ranging from 12lb up to mid 40’s, at least 15 carp over 30lb with an average fish weighing in at 22lb. Large catfish are also present and unlike most UK lakes (and many in France) these are very catchable simply because they can’t stop eating! Like the carp all catfish have been reared by personal-best-angling, the oldest being 10 years and weighing in at 70lb. Many other large cats are waiting to take your bait.

The lower pool is stocked with carp between 15lb and 40lb. With a softer bottom and over hanging trees this really is a carp enthusiast’s delight. Ideal for surface and float fishing, 1960’s carp fishing at its very best.

Built in 1969 these pools were not touched for over 20 years and still surprise us with original stock such as a 38lb mirror gracing the bank.

Half mile along a single rustic track road you turn left into drive that leads to Kingfishers car park. Once here is just a few feet across the lawn to either of the two log chalets. Decking adjoins both and complimented by a patio table and chairs. The distance to the water is just 10 feet. Unwind put your feet up and enjoy some of the finest settings you could ever wish for, because this is the Dordogne in France and this is Kingfisher Pools.Fish Stocked: Carp, Catfish{rokcomments}

Etangs des Papillons Bleu
Etangs des Papillons Bleu

Location: Aquitaine, DordogneWebsite Address: http://www.exclusiveanglingholidays.com/bleu.htmlDescription: Bleu lake draws its name from the woodland backdrop that fills with wonderful bluebells in April! Fish stocks are superior to those you would normally find in the UK or France; the carp here average 22lbs, with plenty of larger specimens up to around 38lbs (including a number of beautiful 30lb+ common carp).

Bleu  also contains plenty of catfish, with the average weight (excluding offspring) being 54lbs and the largest just touching 95lbs. The good news is that these are banked nearly every week, and sometimes in massive numbers as there are virtually no snags to worry about anywhere in the lake.

This lake is renowned for the quality and quantity of fish that can be landed, with weekly catches of over 1000lbs not uncommon. Feature laden, the 5 anglers it can accommodate can choose from gravel bars, an island, overhanging trees and beautiful lily patches to fish to. Bleu is a favourite with many of our customers who come back year after year for the sheer beauty of the surroundings, not to mention the personal best beating fish!

Again, you have the sole use of a bankside summer chalet, containing a gas supply, cooker, pots, pans, sink and patio table/chairs.A toilet is also present within 50 metres and a boat is available on request. We allow a maximum of six people on this holiday with a maximum of five fishing at any one time.

IKtus
Carp fishing at Iktus

 Location: In March 2008, Iktus opened its carp section, a carp fishing centre located in the Laroin commune, near Pau, Southern France (Béarn, Atlantic Pirenees, 64).

Description: The Lake is situated near the trout reservoir. It has a surface of 35 hectares its depth varies between 1 and 10 m. The water is clean, very clear and is of a very high quality. The venue is about 40 years old and is stretched out over 1 kilometer. Weed Possible during summer months

 Stock: The carp stock varies between 6 and 25 kg and we expect some big surprises this year as carp can feed on a wide range of natural food. Fishing is only allowed from the banks, fixed swims, from March until November. There is neither crayfish nor catfish. In 2007 the owners restocked the lake with some extra, fast growing carp (4 to 8 kg). During the test session in October 2007 we were very surprised as we noticed that the same fish had almost doubled his weight in 6 months!

 Swims: There are a total of 13 double swims. In front of swim 6 you will find the deepest spots that are very interesting for sturgeon and big catfish. Swim 7 is very interesting because there lie a number of dead trees on the bottom of the lake; which doesn't make this swim an easy one. During the summer months there might be some weed in front of swims 1, 2, 3, 4, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13. The weed grows near the banks, but sometimes there's some weed formation on deeper spots in swims 4 and 9. It's highly recommended to rent a boat to row out the rigs and to be sure they lie correctly.

 Facilities / Services: Our anglers are welcome in the club house every day from 9.00h. We have a small tackle shop in the mezzanine; the bar/restaurant has a nice terrace with fantastic views over the lake. There are two showers at the lake.

 There's a special carp angler cottage at the other side of the venue where you can prepare your food (micro wave over, fridge, congelator) and there is also a WC. There are little chalets for rent with 2 or 3 bedrooms - blankets are not available, you have to bring them. At Iktus you can hire a holiday home with 2 bedrooms, kitchen, living-room, terrace and balcony, plenty of space for the children to play, etc.

The bailiff Julien, a good carp angler, offers our clients all kinds of boilies (Fanatic baits), pellets, particles, etc. You can rent your tackle on the site, as well as boats (only the boats from Iktus are allowed, you can not bring your own boat). At Ikus they also offer a shuttle service from and to the local airport of Pau (operated by several low cost airlines, like Ryanair), situated at about 10 min from the lake.

lac de Moisson

Lac de Moisson

Location: Situated northwest of Paris (Department Yvelines)

Description: Lac de Moisson is a securely fenced venue with a 120 hectares lake. It’s a real specimen lake where several carp have surpassed the 30kg barrier. We wouldn’t recommend Lac the Moisson for beginners because it’s not an easy lake. People that have fished bigger lakes like Lac du Der, Orient or Cassien however, will enjoy fishing this lake.

Lake: With its 120 hectares, Lac the Moisson is, with La Horre, one of the bigger lakes in our offer. The venue is fringed by the River Seine, from which it formerly made part of. The lake is quite deep; maximum depth is 6 m. In fact, the level of the lake depends on the level of the River Seine.  When the water level is high, there is normally no weed formation. On the contrary, when the level is low, there might be some weed formation. This occurs towards the hotter summer months. The bottom is very irregular and is mostly hard with stones and sand. The depth maps we’ve made of the lake, show lots of hidden spots and a very interesting plateau in front of swims 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 about 200m from the bank. The booking agent recommends taking enough line on your spool to be able to fish these spots. Order a depth map of your swim HERE.

 The management of the site has integrated the different activities well with carp fishing. The sailing activities are restricted to the Eastern part of the lake.

 Swims: On the Southwest banks there are 11 well-spaced double swims, each at a distance of 100 m. All swims have vehicle access over a gravel path. Cars can be parked at the swim.

 Stock: Originally, Lac de Moisson had a relatively small fish stock from the River Seine. These fish grew strongly due to the presence of plenty of natural food like mussels and crayfish. Now, the lake is very well stocked with both mirrors and commons, ranging in size from doubles to 30kg+ with a very good population of fish over the 30lb mark.

 The bailiff advises tiger nuts, fish meal and blood boilies. If you don’t want to catch bream he suggests larger boilies and no ground baiting with pellets. While choosing your hook links, take into account the presence of freshwater mussels and the crayfish (use braid hook links).

 Facilities: There are toilets and showers for the anglers near swim 11.

Very important: at Chateau Moulin it’s not possible to pre book a swim. At your arrival, you take a walk around the lake with the bailiff and you can pick your swim.

Edens Lake
Eden's Lakes

Website Address: www.edenslakes.comDescription:  All 3 lakes are sourced by streams and underground springs. The North Lake, Jolly Pad Lake & Simon's Lake were all constructed in 1994. The North Lake is now an impressive 5 acres. Simon's Lakes is just over 5 acres & The Jolly Pad Lake is 3 acres. Up until now they have been used as stocking lakes for a variety of fish, such as Pike, Zander, Silver fish, Tench and Carp. A lot of these have now been removed to create space for the large Carp.

All the Lake depths and areas to watch out for, can be seen below in the lake diagrams, along with some of the pictures of the lakes.

The bottoms of all the lakes are made up of hard clay and soft clay. At present we are carrying out a planting project, adding reeds and lily pads to the lakes, and trees and bushes to the grassy banks.

The Stock Lakes have been used to breed & grow fish stock for many years. They have been relatively undisturbed for years and the stock have been fed regularly on our pellets and maize and have been introduced to our boilies. The stock lakes will now be used as a resource for growing on our own fish.

All three lakes have undergone extensive work over the winter they have all been drained and all small fish removed they now have level gravel pegs and all have had some lilies and rushes planted to create features and a safe haven for the fish to hide in.

Fish Stocked: Carp, Catfish, Pike, Zander{rokcomments}
