Max 2 rods per angler - unless otherwise arranged with Dave. No rod to be left unattended at any time - our fish are very valuable to us and we don't want to put them at risk. A hooked fish running free can easily get snagged and either sustain serious injury to itself or often death as a result. Large unhooking mats must be used at all times.
All fish are to be returned to the water as soon as possible. The use of sacks / keep nets is strictly forbidden. No litter of any type - store it up and we will collect it from you - please ask for bin bags if necessary. Noise should be kept to a minimum.
Please use the toilets provided on site - we do not expect to have to clear up after you around the site. Absolutely No Swimming in any of the lakes. Respect the countryside around you, do not damage vegetation etc. No open fires, though you may barbeque (There are strict local rules regarding this - forest fire hazzard etc...) please ask Dave for advice on this, once on site.
No Tiger nuts to be used at the lakes - you will find that this is common throughout France now. They swell in the fishes stomachs and can cause death by bloating, so we say NO to tiger nuts.
Any particles to be used must be purchased from us - please do not bring your own!.
Bait boats are allowed at all our lakes but please inform us if you plan to bring them We do allow dogs but must be kept under strict control at all times please.
Both barbed and barbless hooks are permitted but again, please fish responsibly and with care. With regard to rigs - we simply ask that you select 'sensible tackle' that is not likely to put our fish in danger - if you are a responsible Carp Angler, you will know exactly what we mean.
We have no wish to tie our anglers down to specific rig rules but do insist that you fish responsibly, and of course this means taking care to select 'safe' rigs... many thanks for your co-operation on this matter.
And lastly, please handle our fish carefully - no standing up when they are being photographed with you
- terra firma is a long way from homo erectus... a long, long way to fall, if you're a fish!
Please observe our rules of conduct at the lakes as we would love to be able to invite you back.
