The lake received another stocking of 59 mirrors and commons to 35lb. We look forward to seeing some of these on the bank later this year!
An Interview with Deux Iles Owner Bruno Simond
During his recent trip to Deux Iles, our field tester Mike Linstead took the opportunity to find out a little more about the lakes owner, Bruno Simond and his fascinating journey towards setting up his exciting lake.
'At 23 Bruno Simond is one of the youngest lake owners in France. As a dedicated carp angler from a young age he has committed a huge amount of time and effort into developing his skills as both an angler and fishery manager.
I had the pleasure of spending some time on the bank with Bruno, to delve under the surface of his journey and find out what led him to create one of the most promising exclusive-booking carp lakes in the country.'

A great week again at Deux îles with 4 really nice guys. After a quick walk around the lake we used a draw to determine which group will be on each island.
Lee and Peter choose first and started to set up on the right island and discussed the best spots to fish.
The week was not really fair. Indeed Lee caught 20 carps while the three other anglers caught only 4 in total! It seems that all the fish were in the same area.
Lee : 1 x 44lb / 5 x 30lb / 9 x 20lb and 5 teens 13lb-18lb
Peter : sun, feed my carp but he didn't damage them.. :D
Alan : 1 x 16lb common
Dean : 3 x 12 to 28lb
Total : 24 carps
We had a lot of fun this week and I suggest to all the groups who have walkie talkie to bring them to Deux îles as they did this week!
See you next year guys!

Last week was the first week exclusive with a group of four friends. Robert, Andrew, Gareth and Terrence arrived around 11. A draw was used to determine which groups fished which island.
Gareth and Robert choose first and start to set up on the left island and looked for signs of fish and discussed the best spots to fish. It was funny the banter they had between them. They were a good laugh.
Within only 48 hours, Gareth and Robert had 11 carp and 1 tench on the bank. Robert smashed his PB with a 42lb ! On the other island 4 fish had been caught in the first 48hours with a lump at 41lb !!... Good angling guys! Gareth was the next to beat his pb with a nice linear of 37lb !
The final score for the guys were :
Robert and Gareth 22 carp : 1 x 40lb / 5 x 30lb / 8 x 20lb / 4 upper double / 4 doubles, 2 tench, 2 pikes and 1 zander!
Terry and Andy : 13 carps : 1 x 40lb / 3 x 30lb / 5 x 20 lb / 3 upper double and 1 litttle common.
Final score : 35 carps.
