I arrived late in the evening just as the sun was setting. What a site for tired eyes.
I’ve been to many lakes over the last fifteen years covering most of France, Always promised something that just wasn’t there.
With Etang la Rocher it’s the opposite.
I was greeted by Ross and Pixie instantly you can feel their passion for the place, then given a freshly prepared wonderful supper, (thanks Pixie) in what I can only describe as a five star villa on the edge of the lake, huge TVs and sofas, the log burner is a special treat and six beds upstairs.
I chose the sofa with the bi fold doors wide open.
Rods ten feet away. Perfection. Hot showers and bathrooms, three I counted.
What a view.
Ross explained the set up and bait was supplied,
The fish were jumping I was itching to get the rods out. Just looking at the surroundings was a pleasure then the fish came, 4am the first, a 35 common, 8am another 35 mirror, immaculate fish in fine fighting form.
It didn’t really stop for the next two days unfortunately I had to leave. Two of us in 48 hours had over ten fish from the first two 35’s to a 38 sturgeon, 40 mirror (beautiful) and a selection of big thirties. The swims are unbelievable from the details in the setup, privacy, electric points, wi fi, probably the best bivvies and wide beds all set and ready to go. Superb.
After the nights fishing feeling a little cold. I was served hot bacon sandwiches where I sat. I can honestly say that it was the best fishing trip I’ve ever had. I will be back. Sooner rather than later.
Well done everyone who put so much effort, hard work and detail into this tremendous fishing experience.
All the best
