Carp fishing in France at the Beausoleil lake
Whether you’re a regular visitor to France or it’s your first time, planning your first carp fishing trip to France is a complicated business. My main advice is: don't take too much stuff! The more you take the less mobile you’ll be and, believe it or not, mobility is key when fishing a lake for a week long session. Here's what I would recommend when you prepare your kit: http://www.frenchcarpandcats.com/blog/blogstory.php?seq=74

Just before Christmas we had the lake netted. This was to remove silver fish and small catfish. The operation was a great success. It was wonderful to see all our fish in one go and a great experience for us. These are just a few shots during during the day.

When some anglers are struggling to put fish on the bank, the first thing I ask them is if they have sharpened their hooks. In waters where the fish see a lot of angling pressure, they are used to getting rid of rigs and having sharp hooks can make the difference betting loosing and banking fish. http://www.frenchcarpandcats.com/blog/blogstory.php?seq=63
