New Lake Record 56lb


 Really happy to announce the capture of a new lake record with an amazing weight of 56 lbs 8 ozs. As the fish was only stocked 12 years ago at 6 lb this makes it’s progress even more special and I’m sure it won’t be long before it reaches the magical 60 lb barrier. There are still a few weeks available in the coming months and with some flights being as cheap as £80 return a late booking could be cheaper than you think. Don't miss out book now.

Exciting new film is landing shortly


A big thanks to John and matt who did our film for us several years ago and agreed to come back and do a new film as the fish had grown so much since the last time they were here. They ended up fishing for about 4 days and managed to get some great footage and fantastic pictures for us. They were pleasantly surprised by the growth rates of the fish with much bigger averages than they had a few years back. Matt caught Floppy tail which he had caught on his 1st trip at just over 40lb this time she weighed over 49lb and John had the Italian at 46lb they had many good 30’s I believe matt had about 10 x 30’s and John had several good 30’s also as you’ll see when the new film is available shortly.

6 over 40lb


This information has only just come through to us but it’s clear that the carp have woken up at Saint Amand Leisure.
As one of our clients has just told us about his week in April which had some amazing captures, although confronted with extremely changeable weather, he and his father were able to catch over 65 fish, 6 of which were over the 40 lbs mark, with 2 of those being over 45lbs. Although they did have a couple of slow days when the fish fed they fed well. With them catching 13 over 30lbs and 22 over 20lbs, with many of those being over 25lbs. All caught on Premier Baits Saint Amand mix boilies. Chris actually thought the lake fished quite hard this time around (His 6th visit to us) but as usual he has already booked for later this year. Well done Chris on your great captures, look forward to seeing you soon, with only a few weeks left this year we are close to fully booked again!
Please check our calendar for available dates if you'd like to have some time on our beautiful venue.

4 x Forties


Back in October we had a group of 4 young lads fishing days only in the hope of breaking the 40lb barrier. They had a great week and caught between them not one 40lb+ fish but 4 including a new forty at 43lb+. Tom caught 3 of the forties so well done Tom. The lads also had numerous fish between 20lb-40lb so a great trip with everyone beating their PB’s. This trip highlights that even though St Amand is a runs water you can catch some 40lb+ carp and it’s the perfect venue to get some good action in stunning surroundings. Don't forget this venue is open all year.

140 FISH between 4 Anglers fishing days only !


 Our 1st week has got off to real belter with over 140 fish landed between 4 anglers fishing days only.
Last week saw some incredible weather at Saint Amand with temperatures reaching 30 degrees on at-least 1 day and the fish responded well to this shift in conditions. The 4 lads that were there had a great week with their biggest fish weighing 39lb and lots of 30’s and countless twenties during the course of the week.
Our mission is to bring back the fun to fishing and we believe we have achieved that with the average weight of the smaller fish increasing each year.
You get a real holiday as well as the chance to catch plenty of carp whilst on your holiday.
Anyway well done lads I hear that a few of the lads beat their PB’s and I’m sure they’ll be back for more soon.

Best Ever Action


Best Action ever this was what Roger Bacon experienced when he visited us for 3 days as he fancied a short break and a bend in the rod as he just finished the very successful Northern Carp Show in Manchester. Roger flew over from Liverpool airport with his wife his young daughter of 10 and her friend so was only going to be fishing 2 day sessions and staying in the house with his family at night..
Roger baited up with a few Kg’s of quad boillies on arrival and fished the following 2 days.
The 1 st day he caught over 15 fish in 9 hours fishing and lost a few the biggest being over 40lb with lots of 20lb+ hard fighting fish. The second day Roger had over 30 fish with both rods out of the water for long periods due to the mad action (2rods) once again Paul had a fish over 40lb with countless quality 20lb+ fish up to 29lb. Paul said himself that it was the maddest bit of action he had ever experienced in his 30 years + of carp fishing. His daughter fished with a float rod for a few hours and caught countless roach and rudd which she capped off with an eagerly awaited tench so needless to say she was a very happy girl.

More than 60 fish between 2 anglers fantastic start to 2013


After such a cold start to the year our first session on the lake was not until the end of March. After having booked a return flight for £40 a few days earlier I was on my way to Limoges and 5 hours from leaving my house I was at the lake rod in hand looking for signs of fish. Our onsite bailiff elected a more casual approach, casting out singles to a bar at 40 yards. With his bait being picked up almost straight away resulting in a 25 mirror .He then went on to catch a further four twenties to twenty seven pound in under an hour. I fished over to the dam end in fourteen feet of water in hope of one of our bigger specimens. First days fishing was a great day ,twenty three fish sixteen twenties to twenty nine between the 2 of us with the rest being hard fighting doubles in fantastic condition .These fish really do fight hard and with many double takes by the evening we had retired to the house for a rest and a glass of wine or two .After watching England play football and a lovely steak and chips an early night was in order only to return to the lake in the small hours to resume the action which continued all week with rarely more than two hours between fish. All in all a great week with more than sixty fish gracing our net ,half of which were twenties some nearing the thirty pound mark with two over thirty and a 43lb’er. What a way to start the year. We look forward to seeing you soon with our low price fixed for 2013 don’t miss out on the action.

Fantastic 1st summer


Our 1st year of being open to the public has meant that we have had a busy summer and many satisfied guests with everyone getting in on the action there have been countless PB’s.
Our site manger Christophe has been doing a great job, with everyone who has visited us appreciating the help and advice that he offers.
It’s really nice to know that our guests appreciate all the hard work that has gone into providing this very special venue with so much charm and character it’s difficult to see how anyone could possibly not enjoy their stay at St Amand.
The fish have been keeping people busy and have given many an angler a memorable battle to remember. To give you an example of what some of our guests have caught Martin from Herts only spent half of the week fishing mainly days and caught a 40lb, 38lb, 30lb 2 tone common along with many twenties and doubles. I’ve attached some pictures of these special fish.
We have started to take bookings for 2012 and look fwd to another great summer at St Amand with many more happy guests experiencing this special venue and what it has to offer. We truly believe we have a venue that everyone can enjoy.
For those who like to get out in the colder months we are open most of the year and because you have a house included in the package at St Amand you can keep dry and warm whenever you choose to.

2 Anglers 59 fish catch in 4 nights biggest 38lb


Great action topped by a 38lb specimen's the weather has been incredible over the last week with highs of 30 degrees which has really got the fish going. The great thing is that the 38lb fish weighed 31lb 12oz in November 2010. It won’t be long before Saint Amand produces a 50lb+ fish. Take a look at the top 4 fish pictured they are stunners.

December Stocking


As part of our on-going and carefully thought out stocking programme in December of 2010 we were able to Hand pick 20 fish between 30lb - 43lb these fish have never seen a hook and were bought from our local French fish farmer who has provided us with quality fish for the past 4 years now. These fish had been left to grow naturally in low numbers with lots of acreage for a number of years and have not been artificially fattened up in a fish farm as is often the case so it is not surprising that they grow so well once at Saint Amand. There is no doubt that these fish are going to be the Crown Jewels of the Lake in the very near future.

Impressive Growth Rates



During a short 12 hour session at the beginning of March I caught 2 fish the one pictured weighed 24lb8oz and I recognised the fish when comparing pictures as a fish that was caught in July 2009 weighing just over 15lb. That morning there had been a sharp frost a result of the incredibly clear skies that night and even though no fish were showing there were fish feeding as shortly after the 24 I had another fish. The second fish was a fish that was stocked 4 years ago at between 8oz-1lb it weighed just over 11lb so you can only imagine how big some of the bigger fish will be this year, it's a very exciting time for us at St Amand and we are anticipating some great captures in 2011.

Novembers new stocking


During November 2010 we had the opportunity of handpicking 10 fish between 30lb – 42lb these were fish that have come from a very reputable fish farmer that we have been using from the start.

The fish came from an un-fished lake where they had been left to grow on naturally and are young healthy good looking fish of varying shapes and scaling-patterns, to add to our already impressive stock of approx 450 fish.

There has also been a December stocking of handpicked big fish so watch this space....
