The Adventure Fishing Holidays team has searched the length and breadth of France long and hard to come up with some waters totally different to our home lake Etang de Pesnel. We have now decided to put on a hand full of trip to some of Frances most famous specimen carp venues, where you will get to fish alongside the team for some of the biggest carp France has to offer.

The Adventure Fishing Holidays team has searched the length and breadth of France long and hard to come up with some waters totally different to our home lake Etang de Pesnel. We have now decided to put on a hand full of trip to some of Frances most famous specimen carp venues, where you will get to fish alongside the team for some of the biggest carp France has to offer.
We will book the venues, organise all the transportation, reserve the accommodation and provide additional where necessary, and of course all money you pay to us will be protected by our 100% financial guarantee. That leaves you completely free to concentrate on the fishing and catching that once in a lifetime specimen carp. Some of the venues we have planned include:

Mar-Pêche Lake

The lovely, 25-acre Mar-Pêche, originally named Lac du Martin-Pêcheur, lies in the valley of the famous river Yonne, near Montereau only 3½ hours drive from the ports of Calais, Boulogne and Dunkerque. The lake is less than 10 minutes from the A5 auto-route. More details…

Salasco

Salasco is a fantasic lake hidden in the Italian countryside. This large lake near Milan, has carp to 70lb, catfish to 200lb, grass carp to 60lb, and sturgeon to 150lb. It’s a brand new carp fishing destination for UK anglers, with limitless potential it’s just waiting to be discovered.
