  • Nautica is an unspoilt, mature French lake of approximately 17 acres. With extensive reed beds and surrounding woodland it has that essential ingredient – character. It is situated in the heart of the countryside with no light pollution, yet only 5 miles from a town with shops and amenities.

    The owner, Guillaume Rousselet, is a well-known big fish angler with an impressive capture record. His mission with Nautica was to create a big fish water aimed at the more experienced angler.

    The 17 acre lake is located in a wooded area giving a remote, secluded and isolated feel. Perfect ‘wild’ French Carp Fishing. The 8 swims are well spaced accommodating up to 6 anglers comfortably. It is roughly triangular in shape with a North West bank formed by the dam, a reed lined South West bank and a grassy East bank.

    The East bank has five well-spaced swims, 1-5, giving access to the deepest water which is between 6 and 8 feet. Hard gravel can be found on the marginal shelf, further out the lake bed is soft and thought has to be given to bait presentation.

    Swims 1 and 2 are on the large grassed area leading from the wooden lodge to the water’s edge. If you choose to hire the cabin accommodation out you are able to fish swim 1 which is a stone’s throw away from your front door. You’ll find the deepest water from these swims.

    Swims 3 to 5 have vehicular access and are set amongst a light reed lined margin with woodland to the rear giving adequate shade during the midday sun.

    Swims 6 and 7 are cut into the reeds on the South West bank and you bivvy up on 6m x 4m wooden pontoons built out into the water.

    Swim 8 is again cut into the reeds on the South West bank and is closest to the unfished dam wall.

    Swim 9 The dam wall is only 50 metres to the left of this swim and the dam has lots of over hanging bushes and snags where the carp lie. It is advisable to fish away from the snags for fish welfare. Bivvying is under the bushes at the rear of the swim

    Please note; the lake in this area (swims 5-9) is initially shallow and wading is essential to land fish, wading out 30 yards and casting 90 yards will give a depth of 4½ feet. The lake bed has a thin soft layer and is hard underneath.

    The dam has no swims due to the nature of the bank, although it is possible to stalk from it.
