Jim Kelly and I have just returned from our first French trip of 2016. It was dropped on us at short notice by Angling Lines so that they could get an idea of the potential of the lake before taking it on as a going conscern. The lake, La Fonte, is only three and a half hours drive from Calais and is very easy to get too. While we were there we put a short video together which if you click on the picture below will take you straight to it.
Our tally for the week was 92 carp with the best specimen coming to Jim at 42lb 13oz. Our choice of bait was Patshull Park Squid and Orange for myself and HG42 for Jim.
