Is anyone up for the trip to France to fish for big wels catfish, or possibly big carp?
The venue I have in mind has three lakes, two dedicated to catfish and one carp fishing. The catfish Lakes contain cats averaging about 75lbs in weight with many over a hundred.
We would need a minimum of four anglers to rent one of the lakes. If there was enough interest we could take over the whole complex,
the lakes are situated just over half an hour from Limoges so if you don't fancy the drive you can fly to Limoges airport.
Price is likely to be around 300 350 Per head. This includes airport transfers, bivvies, Bed chairs, chairs, cooking kit etc.
Specialist Tackle is available to hire and bait is available On site at reasonable cost. All you would need to bring is your sleeping bag and headlamp. Of course, if you don't mind the drive you can bring your own kit.
Dates at the moment are very flexible for next year So let's have some suggestions.
Post on here or PM

Just to add, with 6 people and driving down the cost of fishing on an exclusive lake would be 150.00 each per week.

Hi Andrew
Heres hoping it works out for 2018.
This is the venue I have in mind
http://www.exclusiveanglingholidays.com/thelakes.html
I've just been having a chat with the owner and he said he would offer us a very good price if we wanted the whole complex.
He would charge for the two Lakes and throw in the carp lake for free.
This means you could have a few nights fishing for carp and a few nights fishing for cats to break it up a bit.
He has enough tackle to supply anyone who wants to fly down, including bivvies and fishing tackle.
The optimum number to keep the cost down would be 10. I think that's a bit hopeful so I'm also looking at a few friends here in France who might be up for it and possibly a couple of guys from a different forum. I have asked on here first and will give it a bit of time to see if we can fill it from MD.
As far as dates go it is completely open, best time weatherwise is spring or autumn. We could always do it in the spring and then do it again in the autumn.
If anyone is interested, make your preference known.

Did this ever go ahead? I would definitely be interested in something like this.
