  1. after a lake,gite or cabin for exclusive use,there is 5 of us (2 are anglers) and a dog. no more than a five hour drive from Calais,many thanks in advance
  2. i use nylon for 99% of my fishing,but ive got spare spools with braid for venues fishing to snags locked up,the lack of stretch stops the fish from darting into the snags,and on a locked up clutch,they can only kite
  3. Hiya mate,was layed up on a ship at rouen for 2 months in the spring,now back there for the winter,i fish for around 3hrs a day on average,and different states of the tide,ive had no carp,plenty of eels,but seen quite a few carp float pass dead,ive hooked the odd bream,and seen one dead catfish. The river in my opinion is in a disgusting sorry state,bit like the thames used to be,plenty of sewage slicks...not nice. I shall persevre for the carp just because i`m there,but it wouldn`t be my choice to go and fish the place,hope this helps
