We are a small fishing club In Roussac, Haute Vienne. I started the club 5 years ago as we have our own lake and needed other people to fish it. Fish Include Bream Tench Carp Roach Catfish and Sturgeon. Annual fee is 10 euros There are now over 50 members French and English who regularly fish the lake all year round as there are no close seasons for course fishing. We hold 3 fish matches a year and do it the French way. 3 hours in the morning a 2 hour break with a 4 course meal served with wine and beer and 2 1/2 hours afternoon. Everyone gets a prize even if you blank. Prizes include cash bottles of whisky, brandy, wine, fishing tackle, biscuits, and many other items. Normal cost for entry is 10 euros and the meal also 10 euros. Our next match is 5th September and we are over subscribed. Any visitors are welcome and we charge 5 euros for a days fishing.

MEAL AND CHAT BEFORE THE MATCH.jpg Veiw.JPG view 2.JPG Prizes for all.JPG
The last match of the year.

At least we managed to have two this year. The first in August was a wakeup call to the other clubs in the area to have a go. Everything having been stopped due to Covid. Several took the hint and thankfully followed our lead.

September 5th started overcast and a bit grey but the sun came through for most of the day. We were going to limit the match to 20 persons but due to great demand 27 fisher people took part. 5 ladies and 22 men, 2 English and 25 French.

Before the match there was the usual gathering who nearly all wanted feeding. As normal for a half day match it was just sausages and chips with plenty of rose and red wine. Sausages made by me. Only the best pork used!!

By 1.30 pm all were ready for the peg draw. Jean Luc Rougier drawing the plum peg 23. Our local farming group had pegs 1 through to 7 as they wanted to be near the beer tent. 2.30 pm and the off. As slow start for some but fish were being caught.

At the end at 5-00 pm it was as expected and Jean Luc Won convincingly with a 6.610 kilo carp. Second was Alexandre with bream and roach, and third Jean Claude with a very large rudd and roach.

At the end of the day all enjoyed themselves. It was so good the see Claudine and Gerrard as they had not been seen since last year, and as always Danielle and Jean Pierre Also Daniel Panassat who has been unwell and insisted on fishing this, his first of the year. He had several small bream and lots of roach.

Jade and Timeo, Cathy children, did well.

Steve managed at the end of the day to catch a carp so putting him a position to take home yet another litre bottle of Pastis.
