I have been fortunate enough to fish at Eden’s Lakes on several occasions over the last couple of years. Having fished a huge number of waters at home and abroad, I have to say it is hard to think of any that are more tranquil, relaxing and peaceful. Set in remote, rural France, it is the perfect carp fishing getaway where you can choose to either catch plenty of fish on the easier Jolly Pads or Simon’s Lakes, or tough it out for a whacker on the harder North Lake.
The hospitality is second to none with Karen and Dene preparing superb home cooked food on a daily basis, served up in their characterful little farmhouse. It’s a family run affair without the myriad bailiffs and ‘structure’ that you get at a lot of venues. Edens provides the personal touch and is one of my favourite French fishing destinations.
