In March this year I visited Monument Lake in Northern France which is one of the new Angling Lines waters for 2012. During my visit to the lake I experinced 4 seasons in one week, from freezing temperatures to highs of 18C and thanks to our new range of HG baits still managed to put a lake record of 47lb 5oz on the bank along with 11 other good sized carp.

Also during my visit to Monument, Martin Barker, who is the owner of one of the other A/L venues, Oakview, visited the lake to conduct a short video.
