Armfield Angling carp fishing france

Armfield Angling Newsletter - February 2017

The start of another exciting season is nearly upon us. Having endured frozen lakes and minus temperatures, the first signs of early spring are beginning to show.

Lac de Villedon

Massive works have now been fully completed at the venue. Having undergone a full drain down and all poisson chat and fish under 20lb being removed this is set to be a fantastic year at the venue. In order to fully appreciate the fishery management programme, videos are now available on the Armfield Angling website under the Lac de Villedon fish stocks tab. The carp industry grapevine has already beaten on the work undertaken. We are now full this April on every swim, every week and if you would like to experience catching some of France's finest fish it is prudent to make any September and October bookings especially this week as swims are becoming very limited already. Please also remember no particles this year - just boilies and pellets.

The Secret Garden

No sooner had work finished on Villedon, Carmen and I were off again to The Secret Garden. Again a full drain down has taken place, the lillies removed in large areas and a very comfortable swim created at the entrance to the shallows. In addition, all small carp have been removed and 50 spectacular new fish added including some fabulous linears, fully scaled and incredibly large scaled big framed mirrors. A drone video has been prepared of the venue as it refills to its capacity and is on our Facebook page. It shows just why this is such a popular and exclusive fishing retreat.

We have been very sorry to disappoint over 80 enquirers all looking for trips in 2017 season as our 28 weeks per season are now fully booked. However if you want to experience one of the most prestigious exclusive venues in France for 2018 please contact us on This email address is being protected from spambots.

Etang de Brigueuil

In only a few weeks we welcome back Steve Briggs and Joan to one of their favourite venues. Steve returns so fish the beautiful chalet swim 12 and we will be producing video and articles for the leading carp angling publications.

The fish over the last 12 months have achieved remarkable growth so we have many new 50's this year (and one or two even bigger!!!).

A beautiful venue with some fantastic fast growing fish, the lake exclusive option for many of our customers is proving very popular, a very sociable venue that can be booked exclusively for 8 anglers for only £2,875.00 per week!!

However we can help you and wherever you decide to fish, Carmen and I wish you a most enjoyable season.
