The Les Croix Experience
Les Croix is a real carp anglers lake. Here you can enjoy the best available angling environment with peace and tranquility, beautiful pristine carp, lovely lakeside accommodation - without the risk of having your holiday spoiled by others ! An old school venue - where proper carp fishing, casting and baiting up from the bank are the norm, where fish can be caught in the margins in daylight, and played to the net from the bank with no hidden snags or weedbeds. Just you and the carp - for a stress-free holiday !
The venue is available for exclusive bookings only. A maximum of 6 rods are allowed per week - this doesn't focus primarily on
maximum income ... but it does provide the most enjoyable and productive angling situation along with a relaxing exclusive
holiday for our discerning clientele. The venue is unique, being owned by a qualified fisheries manager - this is a fishery that was created and managed correctly from day one.
Unlike the majority of French venues where revenue is the primary consideration and the fish are regarded as a commodity for generating income, Les Croix is run with pride and passion by a long term carp angler - who also benefits from having the relevant knowledge and professional fishery management background which is necessary to run a carp fishery in the long term.
This fishery has a balanced stock of big pristine carp along in addition to a number of young rapidly growing fish that represent the future of the fishery. It's not a runs water but has a stock of fish that very few venues can aspire to. We don't exaggerate our fish stock as so many others seem to do, but Les Croix can produce the catch that you have perhaps dreamed of !
Short sessions, resting the lake in between, combined with regular baiting produce the best results. In May 2016, long time carper
Jim Nicholson - on his first visit to Les Croix caught 19 fish including 2 upper 60's, 2 mid 50's, 7 x 40's and 5 x 30's. Not a one-off
catch by any means - the following week, 13 x 40's and 4 x 50's were caught, and all were different fish.... enough said !
In 2019 another of our regular anglers, John Sullivan, caught 28 carp in a week, with 5 x30's, 10 x 40's, 1 x 50, and 3 x 60's included
in his catch, once again showing the amazing potential of the venue. We have never needed to advertise Les Croix - having always operated "under the radar". We believe that understated quality and word of mouth is the best advertising - although the truth
is that some of our clients like to keep the venue to themselves ....
