2m+ meerval op Domaine des Iles voor Brian Collins!
Geplaatst door Bas van Klaveren op 11-07-2018
De Engelse karpervisser Brian Collins is al jaren een vaste gast op ons Noord-Franse betaalwater Domaine des Iles - Main Lake! In het weekend van 6 t/m 9 juli beleefde hij weer een topsessie op het water, waarover hij ons het volgende schreef:
When I arrived at the lake I was greeted by Bernard & Odile. Bernard and I then drove around the estate and chatted to Raf Trouillet who had just landed a nice Common Carp.
I soon set up in 14/15 following a cancellation but knew it was going to be hard fishing due to hot, sunny conditions of 30c +. The first few hours were quiet so I decided to do some stalking, I soon had a lovely 28lb mirror in the net caught off the surface with freelined dog biscuit. I then returned to the swim to get the rods out and just before sunset one of my rods tore off, after a long battle I managed to land a huge catfish of 120lbs +/- It was over 7ft long and was very fat. This is the biggest catfish I have ever caught! Not easy to land by myself and photograph in the dark!
The next morning I landed 10 carp between 6am - 12pm (I was told the carp wouldn't feed in the day!) During the afternoon I went to watch the England v Sweden match with Bernard which we won 2-0! It was nice to drink a cold beer in the shade and rest my biceps for a couple of hours.
When I returned to the swim I continued to catch carp and landed 2 Grass Carp of 35lb & 37lb. The bites continued through the night but the next day was quieter so I decided to stalk the stock pond, I managed to catch a lovely little Common, these fish will soon be put in Le Carpier before being moved in the back lake.
As usual this was a successful session and after 15 years of fishing DDI I never get bored. I will be back maybe later this year but definitely in 2019.
