Carl, Bella and daughter Madison arrived at Puyravaud in heavy rain with little idea of the session Carl was about to have.

Despite the weather, Carl had a brilliant start with a 61lb 13oz common, followed by a lake record grassy of 46lbs 9ozs. Two more good 40’s followed on day 1 with day 2 starting with a fantastic 62lbs 6oz lake record and PB common. A dream start that continued with fish all through week one of the trip.

Week 2 could not be anywhere near as good could it. Certainly it could! After bagging 32 fish, Carl managed another 33 in week 2 for a total weight of 2828lbs!!!!!!!! The largest weight ever caught at Puyravaud by a single angler. Average weight across the two weeks – a staggering 43.5lbs! Carl ended up with 5 x 60’s, 9 x 50’s and 27 x 40’s during his stay. Only 4 of his fish were under 30lb. Carl even caught our lake record common twice during his stay!!!! Top angling!

Simply a never to be repeated session that happened after over 20 years of fishing in France.

Not fished but baited up for Carl to fish during his second week.



The Amery family are on their second trip to Puyravaud and straight away Carl was into some of our biggest fish.

A further 6 fish between 34 and 47lb have been caught by the end of day 3 to ensure a fantastic start to the trip. The good news is there is still a week and a half left of the trip!

Mark and Terry are frequent visitors to Puyravaud and their two week 2020 trip started well with some nice 50’s and a lot of good 40’s. Terry enjoyed a very nice PB with his first ever grass carp weighing in at over 42lbs. As usual with this type of carp, it was difficult to land but played nicely on the mat to allow a rare photo of these beautiful fish.

Well done Terry!
