Second visit, 2 new PBs

With the return visit of Dave and Martin, the weather decided it was going to get even hotter, a situation that was affecting the fishing at hundreds of lakes throughout France, so things didn’t really look good for the boys at all.

True to form , no matter how hard they tried, the fish just didn’t want to know until a couple of days of cooler temperatures at the end of the week suddenly changed things.

8-30 on the Friday morning and things turned round for them, a pb mirror of 37-4 for Dave to go with mirrors of 25-4 and 24 plus an 18lb common. Martin joined in with a 16-8 common and a pb mirror of 40-4.

Well done fellas, I’ve known anglers pack up and go home during weeks like this, just goes to show how a little change in the conditions can bring about a sudden change in the fishing.

Once again the happy pair have rebooked for next year, hoping for a little cooler stay.

The Wals are back again for another try next , but will the weather beat them this time now the spawning has stopped.

First visit, new PB

Adam and Ian flew in for the all inclusive package after seeing Mike Salisbury’s video with the weather baking everything in its way. The fish were in the upper layers under the cover of the overhanging trees and bushes and didn’t really want to play ball.

Give the lads their due, they asked all the right questions and took it all on board, giving it their best shot with simple rigs and bottom baits to no avail, until Tuesday that is.

Adam managed to bank 3 fish on this productive day, an 18-5 mirror, 24-6 mirror and cracking new pb mirror of 40-5 , definitely worth the wait. Unfortunately that was it for the week but they enjoyed themselves that much that a return next year was booked before they departed for the airport.


Time for the visit of Mike Salisbury and his young helper Jordan intent on filming their trip hopefully with a few whackers involved.

I won’t bore you with the ins and outs of the trip but point you towards you tube and Legends La Tremblaye , an insight to whats available at this stunning venue. Yes they caught, yes they loved it, yes they are coming back next year , nuff said.

Needless to say the tactics and tackle used are explained by Mike himself , and no humans or piscatorial creatures were harmed in the making of this film, Enjoy.

Big thanks to Mike and Jordan, the film has generated a lot of interest in the lake to the extent that our next guests booked straight away after watching it, we shall see how they fare.
