You can catch carp (nearly) everywhere in France... but take a look at these superbly scaled mirrors at High Mill Lake in the catch report below. Andy & Tracey write us the following:
28 March - 4 April 2015
7 anglers from Spain and Germany braved some very cold and windy weather but with some great results. All in all 42 fish from 50 runs on a mixture of garlic, tigernut or pineapple boilies. Regular guests Steffan and Susi fished swim 8 this time, a change from their usual swim 11 which they will revisit later on in August. It rewarded them with 13 fish including 6 over 30lb to 38lb and a first for Susi who landed her first ever carp, a lovely common of 32lb... 12oz. For Raul and his friend on swims 9 and 10 their average over 10 fish was 39lb. With 3 over 30lb, 43lb 2oz, 46lb, a mirror and a common at 48lb 6oz they topped off their session with a 50lb 10oz mirror. Well worth their long journey. We joked that their colleague's scales weren't working properly as Luis and Pedro on the chalet swim had 7 fish all at 33lb! But not bad all the same. Michael and Thorsten fished swim 11 and had a great start landing a 40lb 4oz mirror as their first fish of the week. They went on to land 11 others including 4 over 30 and a mirror of 40lb 6oz. Overall average for the lake for the week was 30lb 7oz.

The weather was much better this week for our German guests who enjoyed some really hot sunshine once the bitter winds subsided mid week. 5 guys here for the week and a French angler for 3 nights and they all had a great session. Antoine on swim fished with Mainline Cell and New Grange catching 6 fish during his 3 nights to 44lb and 3 30's, 35lb to 39lb 10oz. Patrick, David and Klaus on swims 9 and 10 landed 7 to 39lb. Top rods this week were Christian and Klaus on swim 11 who landed 25 fish from 36 runs. They had a few smaller fish which we have come to expect from that swim but they still had 10 over 30lb, and mirrors of 44lb and 50lb 13. Overall average for the week at High Mill Lake was 29lb.
