This morning we awoke to find a very heavy frost covering the ground and a thin sheet of ice covering much of the lakes. The past few days have usually started cold and frosty but by the time we have completed breakfast the sun will have risen and conditions become quite mild once more. This time o ....more
A week that started warm and sunny finished up wet and cold and with the carp still spawning the catches have gradually tailed off with last night failing to produce a single fish. Lots of thrashing around in the shallows could be heard over night as the carp continued with their spawning and we wil ....more
This morning I walked around the lake, warm in the mild temperatures and enjoying the quietness that is a feature of this time of year. No birdsong nor chatter of squirrels to accompany me, just the misty tranquility of a November morning broken only by the sound of the waterfowl quietly going about ....more
Every year that the fishery is open has seen notable changes in the type of fishing enjoyed by our anglers. It is a reasonable assumption that as the carp get bigger they also will be getting wiser and this year certainly showed that our carp are proving to be far more elusive than in previous ....more

We have just enjoyed a very successful weeks fishing with a total of 82 fish banked (79 carp and 3 sturgeon) with everyone banking 40′s and Tim and Mark topping their catch with 50′s. It was strange that we have yet to see the bulk of last years big fish with both this weeks 50′s b ....more
Le Moulin du Mée is a stunning 14 acre lake in the unspoilt region of France. The lakes are set in 40
acres of woodland and wild flower meadows and are a haven for wildlife. With its own ‘micro climate’ the area boasts long hot summers and mild winters, perfect for the growing on of carp.
With a maximum of 8 anglers allowed at any one time, the lake has never been pressured which has resulted in superb catch results week after week.
The lake has just over 500 stocked carp with weights ranging from low 20's to mid fifties. Last season plenty of 30’s, 40's and 50's were caught, both commons and mirrors and it is estimated there are at least 15 x 50lb+ carp, 50 x 40's,125 x 30’s, 250 over 25lb with the remainder being high teens and low 20’s. In April of 2011 we saw our first home grown 60 in the form of a common weighing in at 61lb. With the growth rates we have experienced in recent years we could well find that 2011 see's far more very big carp than we have estimated above. There are also some monster Cats aproaching 100lbs and put on a phenomenal fight.
The small lake, Poppy's, is around 4 acres and is stocked with around 150 small carp ranging from mid doubles to 25lb with an additional 50-60 bigger fish to be stocked prior to the start of the 2012 season. These carp will all be in the 25lb - 40lb bracket.
Excellent shower & toilet facilities on-site for charging bait boats, mobile phones, etc.

I had an excellent week even though the fishing was tough and the weather wasn't great. I did have one issue however regarding the distance to the fishery,i think the key on your website should be travelling time from calais and not (as i later discovered) from the nearest port.It is misleading and ....more
