      Flores where to begin? The last two years I have visited this beautiful lake and truly get more impressed with every visit.

      The trip is made so easy with the scheduled pick up points for collection, mine is always the Ship and Anchor in Portsmouth where you can have something to eat and few beers for the journey.

      Once the Flores bus arrives and you start to load this is where the excitement truly starts, be sure to ask the drivers how they would approach the lake alternatively keep your ears open for the hints and tips they have to offer.

      The ferry journey begins with the 2 minute drive to Portsmouth ferry terminal and you being on your way to France, making use of the late bar as after all you are on holiday Haha again if you wish to be fully refreshed for the long day ahead make your way to your room for the night all included in the price.

      Yoh dock early morning in Caen and even the tiredness and hangovers cant curb your enthusiasm to get to lake. You make the couple of hour drive through the beautiful French countryside to arrive at the lake as soon as you step foot of the bus you are greeted with a full view of the stunning lake that will be your home for the next week.

      Julie and Dan are straight out to give you an amazing welcome with there lovely pet dogs and cats all excited to see the new crop off anglers. Julie and Dan are an absolute credit to Flores and your trip would not be as special if it wasn’t for these guys from Dan’s knowledge and passion to Julie’s personal and cooking skills!

      It all comes together to make this a great experience, two extremely high quality meals per day with lunch being available for a small fee. Breakfast and lunch can be brought to your swim if you’re hauling but it always nice to catch back up at breakfast and dinner and have the craic with the rest of the guys.

      As for the fishing you begin with a walk around the lake make sure you are fully in fishing mode here as choosing the wrong peg can lead to a tough weeks fishing, look for the carp as you would in UK, carp boshing out the water, fizzing and carp taring up the silt lake bed. Keep a note in your phone or pen and paper with your desired choice of pegs, usually pick 2 or 3 as you may not come out the hat before your favourite has gone.

      Once you have drawn your peg approach it just like you would in the UK, keep things simple and if you’re not on the fish don’t fill the bait in, simple rigs accounted for nearly all of the fish on my trips with KD’s and Spinner rigs being the most effective.

      The week is helped to fly by thanks to the lovely home comforts such as the wifi in each pegs, immaculate shower and toilet blocks and the stocked vending machines.

      I have booked up to visit again in 2020 and lookig forward just as much as the first time, the effort and money Dan, Julie and Alan have put in over the last few years has been remarkable to create what I believe is the perfect French carp fishing holiday! ?

      We have visited this lake twice now in the past 4 years, good head of fish and the owners look after you. Good venue for a weeks fishing. Just make sure to take loads of bait 😉
