Barry and Yve welcome you to their beautiful French carp fishery. Barringtons is a lovely 8 acre lake lying in the Champagne region near Montier-en-Der, only 4½ hours drive from the ports of Calais and Dunkerque. The natural landscape & rural setting make it the complete 'get away from it all' venue. This lake is ideal for groups of 4-6 anglers to hire exclusively but can be booked individually too. 


There is also optional accommodation in the form of a lovely wooden lakeside cabin which can be hired for the week. There is a twin bedroom and additional sofa bed, meaning it can sleep up to 4 guests. If you hire the accommodation you have use of the swim directly in front of the chalet and also swim 7 to the right hand side.


There are over 120 carp (common, mirror and grass) to mid forties and they are growing fast. Some of the initial stock have already gained over 8-10 pounds of weight within the last 2 years.

A beautiful lake dappled with small patches of lily pads and plenty of features - if your wish is tranquility with comfortable facilties lakeside then this is the place for you. Leave the rest of the world behind and let your mind wrestle only with how to catch and land these pristine & hard fighting carp.

"Been on lots of French trips, I have to put Barringtons up there as probably the best. Fantastic hosts and gorgeous lake with fish that fight hard."

Lee Hasbury, April '18

Carp fishing France at Barringtons

 

The lake is just over 8 acres and offers 7 spacious swims with 4 double swims for anglers who want more social fishing and 3 single swims for the angler who prefers a more stealthy approach to their angling.​ If you hire the lakeside cabin you get use of swim 7, which lies closest to the accommodation.

The lake can be booked exclusively or individually. On non-exclusive weeks a peg draw will be in place. There are plenty of swim options and you will always have a choice. Sitting amongst mature woodland, the wildlife here is abundant too (photographers take note).


Bait boats are allowed on our lake, however, please stay within your fishing boundary and do not drive your bait boat more than halfway across the lake. When in doubt please ask Barry or Yve. We also rent out bait boats if you forgot to bring your own or don't have room in your vehicle to bring one with you.

The lake bed is blue clay and there are a few patches of weed and many small beds of lily pads scattered around the lake, which are great holding areas of carp. Overhanging trees and a dead tree in one margin and an island lend other options.  The fish seem to come through the weed easily if you don't tug at them.

 

The water is very clear due to the fresh water inlet between swim 3 and 4. While bait boats are allowed, the owner states that they seem to spook the carp here so unless used sparingly they may be more of a hindrance than an aid. 


A little more information on each swim;

Swim 1 - Double swim. Fishing towards the island on your right and open water with lily pads in front of you.

A 0lb Carp from Barringtons

 

In the winter of 2014 the owners finished creating the islands, the swims and resurfaced the access road, refilling the lake with water from the natural spring. Finally the first tranche of fish were introduced in January 2015. This first batch consisted of some stunning young mirrors and commons, all handpicked by Barry & Yve for their growth rate and beautiful scale patterns. These carp were all between 22 and 44lb. The lake also contains just one catfish.


In May 2017 we cross referenced the latest catches with the weights of the fish when they were first introduced and we were amazed about the growth rate of some of the carp. Most had grown on average between 7 and 10 pounds within 2 years which is simply incredible. However, looking at the abundance of natural food in the lake it is not that surprising that they have packed on the weight.

There is an ongoing programme for additional stockings of carp each year and with a great management programme in place too this is carp fishing France at its finest.

Facilities at Barringtons


Weigh Slings/Cradles & Nets - We have invested in AVID "Any Level" Carp cradles and weigh sling systems for each swim and for the safety of our carp. We have also purchased the AVID 42" landing nets for use by our guests. This avoids the dipping in anti bacterial liquid of your own nets. These items are provided free of charge and will be checked out at the start of your stay and at the end. Any deliberate damage to the equipment will be charged for.

Toilets & Shower - There is a spacious and pristine toilet and modern shower room adjacent to the car park for the use of the anglers and an additional toilet room. Please note that there are two small steps up to these facilities. 

Please note that, like many lakes in France, the water used for the shower, toilets and sinks is predominantly from the lake topped up by rainwater. It is filtered and chlorinated but may be coloured. We supply drinking water free of charge and there are bottles of water in the toilets for oral hygiene.


Outdoor Kitchen - We have an outside kitchen with a work surface and sink with hot and cold running water adjacent to the shower/toilet room. You can use your camping stoves there also.  We have a 40 litre gas fridge in the outside kitchen for the use of anglers and if you need anything to be kept temporarily in the freezer, we can take it to the one at our home and redeliver each day.  

We also have 2 x 40 litre gas fridges available to hire and put in your swims to keep your snacks/food and drinks nice and fresh. These are available on a first come first served basis, so reserve them when you have made your confirmed booking. We are charging €30 per week inclusive of gas.


Electricity -
There are solar chargers at the Lodge and USB chargers in the outside kitchen for the re-charging of phones, tablets, e-readers etc. As we run on a solar powered 12 volt system, any other batteries can be charged overnight at our home. 

The Lakeside Lodge - If you want a more luxurious stay or to bring non-angling partners too then the lakeside lodge is the perfect solution. It has an open plan kitchen/dining area, one twin bedroom and also a fold-out sofa bed which can sleep a further two guests if required.

We installed a wood burner so you can warm up during those chilly mornings or evenings especially in the winter time. There is a covered veranda with seating and a BBQ in front of the Lodge.

The toilet/shower facilities are seperate but directly behind the lodge in a second cabin, these are shared with other guests on the lake. 

If you hire the lodge, you have first choice to fish swim 7 which sits approximately 70 yards away.

Anglers are allowed to bring their own favourite freezer boilies to our fishery and we have a freezer available to keep your bait fresh at all times.


However, we do offer onsite to order our bespoke rolled "Bazza's" bait which the fish love and which are full of ingredients that will stimulate feeding and maintain the health of our carp. Statisically the catch rate on these boilies are significantly higher than other baits used on our lake, but bait is a matter of confidence so feel free to bring your own fresh frozen boillies if you wish.

We do not allow anglers to bring their own particles. Nuts are also not allowed (please see fishery rules). If you wish to use particles then we only allow those sold on site.
We do not allow any shelf-life/ready-made boilies at our lake as we believe these are harmful to our fish.

 

If your have any questions regarding bait, or with to place and order, please contact the owners direct. Their email address & phone number can be found on the 'Info Pack' in your Customer Area once your holiday is booked.  All bait is to be paid for in Euros upon arrival. 

 

Bazza's Bait

This boilie has been especially developed and rolled freshly for our fishery with two reasons in mind. Firstly to catch fish and secondly to ensure the carp are fed using a boilie that will support the carp's digestive system, stimulate feeding and support good growth. Rolled with the best 'secret' ingredients available we believe this bait will outperform any other main bait on the lake.

€30 per 2.5 kilo

 

Prepared Maize / Partiblend

Particles are a great bait to stimulate fish to feed and to keep them feeding over time. We have prepared for you 2 different particle baits which can make the difference between a good session or a great session.

Maize €1.50 a kilo
Partiblend €2.75 a kilo

 

Please note; Bait orders are made directly between you and the lake owner.  We (Angling Lines) cannot be held responsible for any problems that may subsequently arise.  If you order bait to be waiting for you when you arrive we strongly recommend you telephone or Email the owner a few days before your arrival to make sure it will be there for you.  In 99% of cases this will just be purely precautionary, but bait is such an important part of your holiday that it’s only sensible to take every step to avoid problems.

 

Baitboat

We have a baitboat for hire at €12 a day or €70.00 per week, however we recommend casting as this seems to produce more fish, with less disturbance made. 

Fridges

As mentioned under the facilities tab, we also have 2 x 40 litre gas fridges available to hire and put in your swims to keep your snacks/food and drinks nice and fresh.We are charging €30 per week inclusive of gas.
