We run four of the premier small water carp lakes in France. All of the fisheries, Mirror Pool, Meadow Lake, Mayflower Pool and Millstone Pool are beautifully maintained and well run lakes with many large carp to 74lb! The choice of fisheries cater for most anglers looking for an uncrowded, drive and survive fishing holiday in France with big carp and beautiful surroundings.
Our lakes are situated in the French region of Limousin close to the city of Limoges and are approximately one hour apart. We open for fishing at the beginning of April and close at the end of October, giving our fish five months recovery time with no angling pressure. We operate on a Saturday to Saturday basis commencing fishing at 3pm and finishing at noon the following Saturday, and accept individual or group bookings.
he beautiful Mirror Pool, set in tranquil surroundings and stocked with a massive head of big carp must make it the most sought after fishing holiday destination. To ensure you have a trip to remember, we have warm and friendly staff always on hand to give help and expert advice. It was our intention at Mirror Pool to create the best small water carp fishery in France.
Mirror Pool is four acres in size and is set in a wooded valley, situated in the heart of the beautiful Limousin countryside, thirty minutes north of the Dordogne.
This stunning picturesque lake is similar to that most famous of lakes, Redmire Pool. If its peace and tranquility you are looking for, Mirror Pool won't let you down. You would be forgiven for believing that there wasn't another living soul within miles.
At night you can relax, sit back and marvel at the millions of stars on view or listen out for the sounds of wild boar and deer that roam freely through the woods.
Since being purchased Mirror Pool has been meticulously stocked with a large stock of big carp. There are currently around forty carp over 40lb, eighteen over 50lb, one over 60lb and one at 71lb! The remaining stock over 30lb with an average weight in the lake of over 35lb. Mirror Pool must be the premier water for its size in France and probably all of Europe .
To maximise your enjoyment, we limit the number of anglers to only four per week and we permit non-fishing wives and girl friends go free of charge.
We provide legal night fishing and no additional permits are required. Each swim has a flat area big enough to take the largest of dome tents.
All snags have been removed from the lake; the lake bed is of hard gravel with silt pockets and there is no weed to worry about.
Additionally, the lake is free of the "poisson chat" (American Catfish), so there is no need to use hard boilies.
For your security, the lake is fenced off and your vehicles are parked on the complex close to your swim. We also have an English bailiff on site, who will happily give you advice on the fishing and the local shopping facilities and numerous sightseeing attractions.
A shower and toilet are situated on the banks of the lake for your comfort and convenience.
