and Winsome Water Lakes are owned and operated by Dave and Patsy. Dave being a passionate fisherman wanted to create a business that catered for the ever hungry big carp fishermen, not in the UK, but in France and particularly in the Limousin region.
Carp fishermen wanted to experience catching big carp, fish 60 pounds and above. It was difficult to find big carp fishing venue's in the UK.
So in 2009 Fish in France and the Winsome Waters were brought to reality by Dave and Patsy. Dave being an accomplished businessman knew he could nurture and create a successful fishing holiday business here in the beautiful Limousin region of France.
Today, after a lot of hard work and dedication, Fish in France has probably become the premiere big carp fishing venue in the Limousin and maybe in France.
The success is built on giving value for money and a service second to none. Dave and Patsy are there to give you best carp fishing experience you have ever had!
We do not class ourselves as a 'runs water', more a water where you stand a good chance of smashing your personal best. We have a good head of fish in both lakes and whilst you fish with us you are never very far from the them, as the lakes are of a good but modest size and therefore they won't elude you for long (hopefully).
In terms of sizes of fish caught, in 2014 the average catch size by any party of anglers was well over 24lbs. And to cap this some of our sturgeon made an impromptu trip to the bank on many occasions as well. So while we can't promise you that you will bank an enormous catch of fish in your time with us we do provide you every chance of doing so - the right spot, the right baits, tips and guidance.
Our lakes are fishable all year round, with great catches being made throughout every season of the year.
the choice of carp fishing holidays in France where you can catch a good head of good size Carp is now pretty extensive and hence the competition is great.So what sets us apart from the rest? Our lakes are not too big.
By this we mean that with our two lakes at Winsome Waters you are never going to be very far from the carp. We hear stories from anglers who have sat on the bank of some of the larger fisheries for days on end and not caught a thing.
They know the carp are there but they can't get near them. At Winsome Waters you will always be as close to the big carp as you want to be and so will stand a good chance of landing a 'PB'.
We pride ourselves on providing our guests with a highly personalised service. From your very first contact with us, be it a call or an email, we will respond quickly and get to you all the info you need for you to weigh us up against our competition. We don't promise anything we can't deliver!
When you fish with us we will be on hand if you need us. But if you simply want to get on with it, no problem, as long as you abide by the rules. We aim to provide the very best service for our clients - if there is something you are not happy about, we want to know about it, so that we can work with you to put things right. Above all we strive to provide the very best Carp fishing experience available in France. We have a good stock of all sizes of fish above 20 lbs in each lake. We pride ourselves on being very reasonably priced and intend to keep things that way.
