Le Moulin du Mee - Getting Better....

Another week comes to a close with all the signs that things are improving. Although the 4 lads managed a creditable 34 fish it is interesting to note that half of them were caught in the last 24 hrs. The week once again saw a mixture of weather from warm sunny days to torrential rain and cold winds but it seems that a Friday thunderstorm finally turned the fish on with several caught during the height of the storm and a good few more in the hours that followed. Throughout the week there were plenty of fish evident and all the guy’s reported some real monsters showing over the baited area’s which augers well for the weeks to come. Top rod was Dan with 16 carp to his name including a brace of 41lb mirrors with his father Phil including a cracking brace 40′s with a 46lb 15oz common and 44lb 7oz mirror. The latter was caught at the height of the thunderstorm when the lightening was flashing all around and the rain was coming down with some real venom. Worth getting wet for methinks !! French newbies Kevin and Steven (the Red Bull kid) both managed a some pb’s with Kevin banking several carp up to 43lb and Steve having a great last 24hrs which included 3 carp up to 35lb plus a 38lb sturgeon. All in all it was a great week despite the fishing being slowish for the most part and we are delighted that the lads are all returning again next year for a crack at the biggies. Great company, lots of laughs and some lovely fish made it another memorable week for us.

Vallee Lake 2 produces a MONSTER 72lb Silver Carp.

Dutch angler Remco Koning caught this amazing fish from swim 9, the centre of the lake, on a snowman pop-up rig.

Remco battled for over an hour to tame the monster, he also had a 36lb Mirror and two 30's in the same area with still 5 days fishing to go!

Remco said "what an amazing fish, truly an unforgettable experience and thanks for all the help with photos and videos by Mark and the FOX girls."

You will notice on the right side of the photo another hand, this is a helping hand from behind by one of the FOX girls who were also there this week.

Brilliant....WELL DONE Remco.

Londoner, David Fiske, banked eight cats last week from Orchard Lake, including this lake record Wels' of 58lbs - a real solid-looking fish.

Big cat man David fished live baits caught from the lake on dumbell rigs. He also landed two different 40lb cats and several double figure sturgeon.

All this from a beautiful 2 acre lake.

It's not only the fish that go big in France, the lake wildlife is also something to behold.

This amazing photo of a dragonfly was taken on Etang Rendezvous in May this year.
