Brief details of your catches
My son caught i n order; Common 48lb Cat (small) Sturgeon 29lb Pike 14lb Common 40lb Common 26lb Mirror 35lb I caught; Mirrow 30lb Common 26lb Pike 14lb Mirror 45lb Fishing was tough and we had to dig deep, but we learn't a lot and are confident of continuing where we left off next time.
What did you find were the best tactics/baits?
My son stuck to his guns using PVA mesh pellet crushed boilie under a single hook bait followed by a good session with the throwing stick. I had the most success later in the week by changing to the venues own maple bolies with a chopped hi-vis pop-up.

Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
i would recommend the venue to anyone looking to fish in France.Its a beautiful place with loads of space,the fishing is neither too easy or too difficult and the fish are in immaculate condition.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?

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 of little use to the vast majority who travel from calais.Another quick point is that some of the tolls do not accept master card which could have been embarrasing had i not had cash on me.

The weather did its best to spoil our weeks fishing. Freezing clear skies at night to hailstone storms during the day. Having said that we still had 25 fish between the 4 of us with almost half being over 40lbs Once again the meal package has left us all returning a few pounds heavier than when we left

Fish were spawning most of the week, weather was very changable, hot one day, wet & windy the next. Most fish caught at night, with a few coming out early mornings & late evenings. I'll send pictures soon, they're being edited.

Brief details of your catches
There were two of us fishing. 16 fish in total. 1 x 45.2lb (lake record) 3 x 30s, 9 x 20s, and 3 high teens
What did you find were the best tactics/baits?
Caught most on the Fisheries own boilies, size 6 hook with a long hair (inch from boilie) over pellet
Were the facilities what you expected?
they were better
Were you happy with them?
Facilities were excellent. Shower was hot and we went with their food package of breakfast and evening meal which was substantial and great value. Also the limit they set on the number fishing mean you will not annoy other anglers, and they won't annoy you.
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Most definitely. The fishery is run by the owner (Jim) and his family who take great pride in the fishery and care of the anglers. Nothing was too much trouble.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Certainly. We've used you twice now and you have delivered us 2 great trips
We took a Ferry to Calais and drove down. That took 6 hours. Perhaps should have travelled from Caen. We will be back

Brief details of your catches
96 carp, 2 sturgeon and 1 catfish. 14 x 30's and 47 x 20's, best fish was a 34lbs 12oz Common. Changeable weather and spawning fish made for a challenging week, but we ended up with a great total and everyone caught new pb's.
What did you find were the best tactics/baits?
The venue produces 2 of their own flavour boilies and we used these exclusively- crab was the most successful, although maple picked up a few of the larger fish. Both fished over a bed of pellet and crushed boilie. Worth having one rod as a \"roamer\" to cast at showing or bubbling fish - this tactic caught us a lot of bonus carp.
Were the facilities what you expected?
Yes, the facilities are excellent.
Were you happy with them?
Yes.
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Yes, absolutely.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes - we gave CCFH a list of requirements in terms of the venue we wanted, and they recommended Le Moulin du Mee. It was a perfect match for us.
Terrific fishing for immaculate and very powerful carp in beautiful surroundings. Jim is an excellent host and takes great pride in his fishery, his son Jimmy worked tirelessly all week helping out where needed, and Lottie and Sophie served up an excellent food package - you won't go hungry here! Absolutely first class, we had a great week!
