Personal Best Angling
Personal Best Angling

Location:  Aquitaine, DordogneWebsite Address:

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: 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.
