If you’re looking for a challenge, somewhere that really gives you the chance to test your angling skills then look no further than Island Lake… it’s a real favourite with our serious specimen hunters. The lake is over 30 years old and set in 35 acres of beautiful woodland, lying close to the River Seine. It’s a 3.5 hour drive from Calais and only 45 minutes from Paris and Euro Disney – a real bonus for non-angling partners. It really is a carp anglers dream – you look at it and just want to fish it. It’s challenging fishing but the rewards are definitely there if you are prepared to put the work in.
