Some of the Atomic boys headed off to France last week to St Leonards Carp Lakes , which is situated in Basse-Normandie . It’s about a 4 hour drive from Calais .

The week started off slow but things pick up catching over 25 fish between them ranging from 26lb Grass carp to the biggest which was 42.8lb common carp which was caught on a bottom bait rig made up from 35lb Jel-E-Wyre with a stinga 4 hook . The boys were fishing on Mad Baits NUtz plus and Wicked Whites.

Steve who runs the lakes offers a food package, the breakfast was great and the evening means were always on time and a pleasure to eat . Steve’s beef curry with chips gravy was spot on.
