Molyneux venue description
map load error

Molyneux lies in the beautiful Normandy countryside and is very easy to reach being around 3 hours from Calais and 1¼ hours from Le Havre… and apart from the last ten minutes it’s all motorway! The lake is nestled in stunning countryside far from noise and light pollution, the loudest noise being the birdsong that provides a peaceful backdrop to the fantastic carp fishing on offer. The lake is a genuine 13 acres, sitting securely in a 19 acre fenced plot. It’s around 40 years old, spring fed and the banks are lined with fully grown willow trees which have had plenty of time to mature. It’s truly a stunning water to fish with many anglers remarking on its beauty. The lake is mainly snag free, except around the islands, which of course are hot spots, but are easily fished with a little application. There are no poisson chat and very few crayfish. With a maximum of 8 anglers fishing this 13 acre lake, there’s plenty of room for un-pressurised fishing. Switching swims is possible… some are double and one will even accommodate three anglers. Best tactics are often to fish to the islands over a small amount of bait… or to create a bed of bait in open water. With the open water tactic it sometimes takes a few days for the fish to move in, but once they do some very big hits can be had. The key to continued success is to then regularly top up the swim with bait. Rigs don’t need to be complicated, indeed simple and strong are the best choice.
