Kingfisher lake

No catch recorded – we have had a couple of bad weeks on Kingfisher. As the weather changed, we had low levels of oxygen in the lake whilst we were away and it is taking its time to recover. Richard had two runs, losing a nice grass carp at the net and was kindly allowed by James and Simon to spend the last day on Heron. He recorded the following catch

45.1M, 31,5M, 37.0M, 36.5M

4 fish, Total Weight – 150.1lbs, Average Weight – 37.52lbs.

Therefore, 46 fish caught this week on Heron!



Regular visitor Terry White was at it again a few weeks back, when he visited Puyravaud for the second time this year. During a night session he hooked into Split Tail and after a difficult fight in the dark the fish was landed at 1.30am in the morning. This time the scales tipped at just over 60lbs and good news that Split Tail is now at its highest weight since arriving with us two years ago!

Terry continues to catch some of our biggest fish and we are happy to have such strong representation on Terry’s top 10 catches, compiled over 30 years of carp fishing in France. Well done Terry and see you in September.

The beginning of June saw a continuation of the stormy weather we had seen in May. Thunder storms hit regularly, along with heavy rainfall and winds. Not what our customers wanted. But there is always an upside – the fishing has been really good with some excellent catches and a good head of 50’s coming out on a regular basis.

Alan Harwin is on his first trip to Puyravaud with friend Graham and their wives. A two week stay has allowed them to fish both lakes and Alan had two PB’s on Kingfisher with his biggest fish a 58.4lb mirror. Moving on to Heron, Alan immediately found the fish at the shallow end of the lake and after landing fish weighing 49.7 and 35lb, he was into something bigger, landing a 57.4lb common at 2.30am to break our Heron Lake record and land his 3rd good 50 of the trip!

Graham, after a difficult start, has also found the fish at the other end of the lake, landing numerous PB’s including a very nice 37lb fish. More to come in the rest of the week as the weather settles down.
