4 fish, Total Weight – 199.8lbs, Average Weight – 49.95lbs

Dan booked just three days before his arrival to try and beat his PB of 44lbs – a tall order with just 3 days of fishing, but had two special fish to beat his PB twice on the trip. Well done Dan!

Kingfisher Lake

Geoff, George and Richie visiting Puyravaud for the first time – 54.3M, 41.2M, 54.5M, 42.0M, 53.7M, 28.5M

6 fish, Total Weight – 274.2lbs, Average Weight – 45.62lbs

PB’s all round for these first timers, but could have been so much better had they landed the 4 other solid runs they had. That’s fishing, but look forward to seeing them back to try and improve their PB’s again! We had a run of 18 fish on the trot over 40lbs in two weeks fishing. Kingfisher is back!



James travelled to France for the first time to fish Puyravaud’s Heron Lake as part of the Plume group of 10. Fishing with his angling mate Rob, little did they know what a week was ahead.

Arriving with a mid 20’s PB, this 16 year old carp fishing nut started with a 36lb PB, Rob also breaking his previous best of 43lb with his first ever 50lb fish. James continued to catch and soon had his first 50, followed by a stunning final PB of 57.9lbs.

The duo managed 33 fish in total, over 1338lbs in weight and an average weight of 40.54lbs. Quite a first trip to France for James and one that might take a few trips to beat. Well done to Rob and James.

See you when you return in August 2023.
