  • The first time you drive along the track from the farm, stop and turn to face Alder it’s almost one of those fist in the air moments. As you slowly descend and the carp lake comes fully into view you know you’ve made the right decision, you’re really going to enjoy this week’s carp fishing in France.

    Yes, the lake has history, it’s pre Napoleonic, & it’s beautiful, lying in a deep bowl surrounded by woods and rolling fields. It’s really peaceful, located in one of the least populated areas of France miles from major roads and railways. But most of all it has atmosphere in buckets… it’s a distinct pleasure just being here!

    The 6 acre carp lake feels spacious and accommodates up to 5 carp anglers, allowing the freedom to move swims. Fishing is from two sheltered banks where swims have been cut into the tree line and from the dam wall.

    Almost hidden from view by the mature oaks, chestnuts and of course, alders, the carp lake sits in a natural bowl. Depths vary from a few inches to 15 feet, whilst the bottom is a fascinating combination of gravel, silt and clay. Weed is not a problem here.

    Two streams enter the lake in the bays on either side of the heavily wooded no carp fishing area. The shallows surrounding this area provide some great carp holding features in the daytime and a thrilling opportunity to stalk your prey… real exciting carp fishing in France
