I have been fortunate enough to fish all over the world, from Barracuda in Cuba to Bass and Walleye in North America. Out of all the fishing holidays I’ve ever had, this was by far the best. The only downside being we had to leave early to attend a wedding. I managed 2 x 20’s, 5 x 30’s & 4 x 40’s in 12 days fishing. A big thank you to Jo, Nigel & it goes without saying, Maisie, the “ball” terrier! We were made to feel really welcome and all of the fish were in A1 condition. Many thanks and we look forward to seeing you all again in 2025.

This was my first ever fishing trip to france, and what a trip it was. Between the four of us we had over 50 carp out in the week we were there. It was an amazing venue with fabulous hosts jo and nigel were more than accomadating, the food was also a bonus. I had a pb and so did two of my friends which i was more than pleased with. Great fishing in a stunning enviroment.

Me and the brothers and one of our friends visited kingfisher lake and I can honestly say it was amazing. The fishing was great even though the weather tried its hardest to upset things! The chalet was great and comfortable and the lake is beautiful, we had some lovely carp with the biggest coming out at 50lb. Nigel and Jo were brilliant hosts, paying us regular visits around the lake and offered some great advice when the fishing was tough… oh we can’t forget Maisie the family dog! Will 100% be returning and I would give more than 5 stars if I could. See you next time guys. The blue scousers Tom, Chris, Mike, Joe and Jake 🙂

For someone who doesn't particularly like fishing and only went to give my partner company, what an amazing time we had. The lake itself it's beautiful... I mean just look at the photos below. Chris loved fishing on this lake and the challenge of getting each fish. The owners Jo and Nigel are the icing on the cake. Such amazing host and made sure we felt at home helping with anything we needed, whether that be trip to the shops, fishing the lake and cooking our meals. They was so accommodating and honestly made the trip so special for us. We cannot wait to fish with them again! Just to throw in Chris beating his PB put that cherry on top of the whole trip!

Came out to France fishing for the first time with my son and friend on kingfisher lake . Can’t speak highly enough of the whole experience. Jo and Nigel went above and beyond looking after us the whole time we were there. We all caught personal best carp I can’t speak highly enough of the whole experience and will definitely be returning. Thanks again Jo and Nigel

Spent last week at Lac Lucie with the family combining fishing with a family holiday. What a fantastic week, Jo and Nigel were perfect hosts and made us feel very welcome, with good banter and Maisie the dog was excellent company too.The facilities were just what we needed, especially the dip pool and hot tub as the weather got warmer through the week.The home cooked food was delicious.Thank you Jo, Nigel and Maisie, we look forward to seeing you again next year.

Incredible trip. Jo and Nigel are the best hosts you could hope for. Could not do enough for you. Strongly considering re-booking next year as our trip was made fantastic by these guys. Fished Lac Lucie. Had carp to 41lbs and cats to 50lbs. Really could not recommend more highly. They have a lovely dog called Maisie who loves company and someone to throw her ball.Cray fish are present in the lake - but they didn't cause us much trouble. Using plastics or wrapping your hookbaits gets round them. Conscious efforts are being taken to reduce their presence in the lakes - and the overall life Nigel is breathing into the lakes is really promising. He was able to give us great advice on how to approach the lake that lead all 3 of us to multiple captures.The venue is perfectly suited to experienced anglers looking for social and enjoyable fishing - aswell as less experienced anglers looking for a challenge with great guidance.

  • Wow what a fantastic week! Arriving as a complete beginner with a couple of experienced anglers in the UK who were new to this type of fishing. I didn’t know what to expect but was hoping to catch a couple. Firstly Nigel got us set-up on lake Kingfisher with all the tackle including tuition on bait, rigs bite alarms and everything needed for fishing through the day and night including chairs, bedding and bivies. Between us we caught over 600lb with only a couple of catfish - all three of us having Carp over 40lb with Nigel going I would say above and beyond (but it is actually into the water) to free up and preserve the fish on more than one occasion. The fish are in pristine condition with the scenery and views of the lakes stunning. The accommodation at the lake has everything you need should you choose to be self sufficient but I would recommend the excellent food package which Jo will do at times to fit in with your preferred fishing times but be warned you will definitely add a few lbs there too. Thanks to Nigel and Jo for being so friendly, welcoming and patient with us, we will definitely be coming back again.

    FANTASTIC!!!! My dad and I have been fishing on Lac Lucie this past week and what a week we had, Jo and Nigel were amazing hosts and couldn’t do more for us, we opted for the food package and what a decision that was, food was delicious, tasty and always served with a smile, whilst fishing me and my dad both achieved new PB’s, dad joined the 50lbs club with the first fish of the trip just an hour in and I pulled out a beautiful 46lb common less than an hour later. Both the fishing and the hospitality were amazing, we couldn’t ask for better hosts or a better fishing trip, we also made a lovely new friend Maisie (the dog) who always kept us on our toes with her ball games, we couldn’t leave without booking for next year. So, a huge thank you to Jo, Nigel and Maisie for an amazing week and see you next year 😎😎 Dave & Alex

    From my first contact with Jo at the fishery, I knew me and my fellow anglers had found a gem! Jo and Nigel were helpful and really accommodating with everything. Nigel has a really good knowledge of the lake having fished it many times before taking it over. Both Jo and Nigel cook up a lovely meal , and I would recommend the breakfast baguettes. Thank you both for a lovely holiday!

  • Nigel and Jo are brilliant hosts. From being collected from the airport we felt welcomed and valued. There was an excellent welcome pack to greet us in our well equipped chalet. Once we sorted ourselves out we were given a guided tour of Lac Lucie and, after setting up our kit we sat down to sample Jo's cooking, which is absolutely fabulous. Nigel was on hand whenever needed for help and advice and the loan of tackle we had forgotten. Even though the lake is not easy both Carol and I managed our P.B's. My mirror was 40lb 7oz and Carol's weighed in at 30lb 4 oz after following Nigel's excellent knowledge and advice. Every morning we had breakfast baguettes delivered to our swims which set us up for the day! The hot tub is a must-have and we even braved the dip pool, which is great once you are in. If we could award more than 5 stars we gladly would!! September 2023

    Beautiful lakes. Kingfisher is 7 acres and absolutely stunning with overhanging trees. Swims are neat ‘, tidy & spacious. Lac Lucie is smaller at 3 acres but just as beautiful. Both have its own chalet that sleeps up to 6, with shower room, kitchen, dining & living spaces. Everything you need us right there. New owners, Nigel & Jo are on hand should you need them and they have an amazing, friendly & playful dog called Maisie that will come to see you complete with ball should you want to play with her.
