George Merrit – 38.09
Back in 2007 fishing in France had been something that had appealed to me for several years, but i didn’t want to go to a complex that was hammered with advertising! I wanted a nice family, friendly complex with great sport. And that’s when I got lucky & came across Le Monument.
It looked like a fantastic venue with some stunning scenery and best of all fantastic fish, so we gave it a go… & we’ve been going back every year since. We’ve had some stunning carp to over 38lb and needless to say we’ve just booked up for 2011!
We’ve always booked the whole lake to ourselves so we’ve been able to move around & get on top of those feeding carp that you wouldn’t be able to do on some of the larger venues.
Mark and Angela are more than helpful when were there, bringing us full English breakfast and hot dinners right to our bivvy. With a power shower, kitchen area and toilets on site you really have all your home comforts.
I would really recommend Monument lake to anyone that’s thinking about fishing in France! It really isn’t as scary as you think to fish in France & there’s such a friendly atmosphere here that you really feel at home.
Looking forward to next time!
George and Ed
