When real enthusiasts get to work on a lake it shows. From the carefully maintained banks to the superb anglers lodge with full kitchen, bathroom and bedroom, maximum effort and attention to detail have gone into the creation of their dream.

Lillypool was brand new to Angling Lines in 2010 and quickly became a favourite.  This beautiful 4 acre lake has been meticulously developed by carp anglers to offer the very best of French carp fishing.  Combine this with an impressive head of fast growing carp and Lillypool has everything you need for that perfect angling holiday.

Located in the Pays de Loire region of France close to the cities of Laval and Le Mans, it’s just a short 1½ hours drive from the ferry port at St Malo and is available on an exclusive booking basis for up to five anglers. The lake is priced depending on how many people you take, so it remains affordable for just 2 or 3 anglers to hire the lake exclusively.

If you're looking for that magic combination of exclusive intimacy and a reasonably sized lake, Lillypool will definitely fit the bill. 

"Brilliant lake. Richard is a really nice welcoming guy who knows his fishing and lake inside out. All I can say is 10/10."

Phillip Jackson, April '17

French carp fishing at Lillypool

Lillypool is a 4 acre spring fed lake with average depths of 3 to 8 feet with features that include lily pads (of course!), extensive reed beds, shallow and deep margins and an island. This lake offers French carp fishing in gorgeous surroundings.

The lake is suitable for 4 to 5 anglers each having plenty of open water and fish holding features to cast to. The banks are flat and carefully thought out placement of swims means that there are 10, giving anglers the freedom and space to move and locate the carp. And you don't have to worry about crayfish or poisson chats... there are none!

Lillypool is set in 10 acres of fields and wooded areas, secure and private, perfect for that ‘all this is ours’ feeling.   Rick the bailiff, now legendary for his hospitality and his knowledge of the lake, will be there to greet you.   After a glass of the red stuff or a cup of tea, whichever you prefer, he will walk and talk you through the swims and it really pays to listen to his advice.

A 40lb Carp from Lillypool

Lillypool was initially stocked with carp to just under 40lb in 2007. A further 33 grass carp were stocked in September 2009 and then in December 2009, the fish farming team returned to add another 55 carp between 20 and 30lb.

In November 2010 a magnificent 51lb mirror was added to give anglers a real prize target fish to aim for and then finally, in January 2011, another 24 carp were added, all of which were above 20lb.

In January 2015 a further 22 carp arrived to freshen the existing stock, a mixture of mirrors and commons all weighing in over 20lb.

The fact that all the carp stocked have come from such healthy, young stock means that we can look forward to some excellent growth rates.
