Armfield Angling Newsletter - June 2015

Lac De Villedon

Lac de Villedon is in full swing and the fish have completely finished all spawning activity.

We are delighted Robert Hales has chosen to celebrate his 50th birthday at the venue in September this year. Rob has taken 18 swims and his guests include Chris Tarrant, Steve Briggs, Simon Crow, Des Taylor and Jon Shoes plus myself amongst other valued friends. During the week the action will be captured live for a video which will feature on our website, our Facebook page and also on Youtube.

The venue continues to invest in improvements and currently they are adding an open air terrace with lounge seating outside of the restaurant for dining and refreshments, it over looks the fabulous koi pool. Guests can enjoy a cold beer on arrival and relax before dining in the 5 star restaurant. Please remember camping on the Friday before your trip begins is also available (by prior appointment) which is the perfect way to unwind from your journey and be ready to start your fishing refreshed on the Saturday morning.

Many UK visitors in recent weeks including Shimanonormark UK have made the journey to Villedon and most have either re-booked already or are in the process of organising dates with their respective groups/friends to book again for 2016/2017.

Please remember to send us reports and pictures of your catches to Carmen. We are currently compiling an album which will feature on Youtube and on our web site and Facebook pages so our existing guests and those yet to visit can see the facilities, fish and fishing reports from different swims in different months of the year.

There is now limited availability for 2015 but have a wider choice of dates left for 2016 and 2017. The lake exclusive option at Villedon is proving to be a popular option offering fishing and exclusive use of the lake and accommodation (the outstanding villa on swim 1 and the cabin on swim 21) for a maximum of 35 anglers, of course you can have smaller groups if you wish and boats (no engines) are included as well as mats. The food package offers 7 meals per angler (one each evening), 5 of which are delivered to your swims and 2 to be taken in the restaurant. Please email Carmen on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for remaining full week availability and price.

The mystery common has put in another appearance although the question of its exact weight on its previous capture still remains unanswered as this time she bottomed the scales at 69.10oz. It really does pay to take big scales to Villedon!!

Le Bois de l'etang

As our consultant Ian Smith prepares to visit the venue we are organising Ian to shoot footage of live catch action along with video of this truly beautiful venue. Shortly after Ians visit Steve and Joan Briggs will visit for a week and we are sure they will add to the venues stunning fish gallery of catches.

Le Bois really is the most beautiful tranquil escape, newly furnished and overlooking the privacy of your own lake you and friends can enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and sample its pristine fish to in excess of 60lbs.

Le Bois is offered on an exclusive basis only and weeks are limited for 2015. Bookings are being taken for 2016. Please enquire with Carmen on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to secure your dates.

Etang de Brigueuil

Brigueuil continues to fish well after spawning. 7 anglers landing 52 fish using a combination of tiger nuts and boilies which are currently proving successful.

The beautiful chalet as usual fished incredibly well with 15 fish to 43lbs. We currently have only 1 weeks still remaining for the chalet this year. Please book now for next year for this particular swim with its outstanding accommodation and privacy.

Thank you to everyone that supported us on our charity walk on 7th June and donated towards Carping for Causes who support Birmingham Childrens Hospital. It was a pleasure to be involved with them and help towards these worthwhile causes.
