  • As many of you will know, Boux has had reputation for top class carp fishing in France since the 1980’s, producing many big carp for famous anglers such as Tim Paisley. That tradition continues and Boux still produces hard fighting carp at consistently high weights with 40lb+ carp out almost every week.

    The lake is around 14 acres and is let on an exclusive basis for a maximum of 5 anglers, ensuring plenty of water for all.
    he Surroundings

    Situated on the eastern edge of the stunning Morvan Regional Nature Park the lake sits in a valley with rolling fields to one side and dense woodland surrounding the rest. If it’s tranquillity you need you’ll find it here – the only sounds you’re likely to hear at Boux are from the wildlife. There are no motorways in Morvan and the estate is located about half a mile from the nearest quiet country road reached by a private track which runs to the farm.

    The peace and quiet will make a lasting impression on anyone who visits, pierced only by the occasional call of a soaring red kite or the plovers in the fields.

    The lake
    The 14 acre carp lake is between 4 and 5ft deep a short distance from the bank, rreaching down to 12ft+ close to the dam end. The deeper water runs down the centre of the lake.

    It has a clay and sandy bottom with some silty areas and a thin layer of silkweed covers most of it. Patches of weed are located mainly in the corners providing good stalking areas and the carp do regularly visit them. A pair of waders can be useful for landing and returning your prize.

    Natural food is abundant with snails, mussels, crayfish and larvae and bloodworm ensuring the health and growth of the carp.

    The crayfish can be a problem in the very hot weather when they become more active, but often the large carp will be in the same area as crayfish are one of their favourite treats! However, if you’re fishing in the hot summer months its best to go prepared – you can find lots of information here for combatting crayfish in France. Tiger nuts fished over maize or hemp is a tried and tested method to use when crays are active. The owner sells prepared tiger nuts on site, so if the need arises they are readily available.

    Where to fish
    Fishing is from a flat raised area bordering the woods and also from the dam wall. The area bordering the wood has space for up to four bivvies making it convenient for anglers who want to fish together. Some effort though is needed to get your tackle from the car park to those swims along the forest track. In very early season or very wet weather this bank can be difficult to navigate as it gets muddy and flooded so waders may be needed.

    The sun rises opposite the forest bank and by lunchtime the woods provide some of that much needed shade in the summer months making it an extremely comfortable lake to fish. This is a fabulous natural lake as opposed to a purpose made venue.
