Last week saw Matt and Brinn tackle Lac Du Coron. The lads hired the lake exclusively so ha the whole lake to themselves to wander and explore. With conditions hot the week before with a lovely south westerly Adam, Stevie and Tommy really did well with 26 or so fish including a PB for Stevie; however as Matt and Brinn arrived the conditions changed, temperatures dropped slightly and more importantly the wind turned to the North East, not ideal! That added up to mean things st
Early next summer we will be holding the LDC Junior Carp Camp at Lac Du Coron. Supported by Mainline Baits and Atomic end tackle we are keen to do our own very little bit to help promote good angling practices and show a handful of juniors what me and many others feel is quickly disappearing from our great pastime. Open to applicants between the age of 11-15 (must be accompanied by an adult) myself and a few of my 'big name' angling friends will impart our passion and knowled
With pressure through the roof and freezing cold nghts the lads did really well last week to tempt a couple of real Lac Du Coron stunners. What was most interesting to me was the the long male called 'moonscale' has 100% not been caught before and Matts 28, although it looks like a fish I have seen before has also not been caught before that I know of fish both were up in weight and both in mint condition. The lads had a huge ammount of fish crashing in the area, but apart fr
Well I have made no secret of it but Lac Du Coron has fished dreadfully for the last 4 or 5 weeks. When you would expect grotty low pressure, winds and rain (perfect fishing conditions) we have stay bone dry and it has gone from 30 degrees to 10 degrees in the space of 10 days with pressure through the roof! So after such a tough few weeks for our anglers I wanted to take the chance to have a go myself. I wanted to try something different, so I laced the silt with 15kg's of A
After weeks and weeks of spawning and seriously high tempretures it was great to see some of the big girls starting to come out and at good weights too. Here are a few photos of Richard who is fishing Lotties Swim with a fish known as Split Tail. She is 6 lbs up on her stocking weight, It looks like we will have a fair few big 40's low 50's this winter. #coronvibe #Publicwaters #kooswalters #buildingswims #nashbaits #mainlinebaits #thekey #carpfarm #carpfishingcompetition #fr
I will soon be doing a couple of nights myself where I will of course try and put a little film together.

An awful lot has happened in the last 18 months, in fact it has all been a bit of a whirlwind and I am only just getting my head around it al now. It was a real honour to be asked by Tim Knight at the Anglers Mail to put a few words on paper about Sharons and I move to France, the process, the work behind it etc etc, so I did just that and a few weeks ago the story came out in the magazine. If you didnt get a chance to pick up and Anglers Mail and would like to have a read, t
In this short video I take a look at my approach. How I would choose to tackle Lac du Coron taking into account what I have learnt observng our anglers and the tips and tricks I picked up fishing over the winter.
I look at rigs, hookbaits and baiting aproaches.

Well what a brilliant 1st few weeks we have had over at Lac Du Coron. After months of back breaking work we eventually opened our gates at the end of April, since then we have had over 20 anglers, 1 50 pounder, 13 different 40's, loads and lods of 30's and plenty of 20's and by my calculations there are still 25 fish or more that haven't even been caught yet. As I write this we have a moment of calm, 5 anglers have just left and for the 1st time in 7 weeks I locked the gates
The fish really started spawning late last night, so I grabbed the camera and whilst the guys enjoyed breakfast I took a wander. #carp #carpspawning #spawning #thekey #competition #commoncarp #carpfishing #kordatackle #carpfarm #carpinfrance #carpfishingcompetition #frenchcarp #carpbait #frenchcarpfishing #nightfishing #coronvibe #nashbaits #mainlinebaits #buildingswims #kooswalters #Publicwaters #mirrorcarp #biglakes #MonsterTigerNut #carpfishinginfrance #coronspecials #fren
