Opened in 2002, the Carp lakes at Dijon have as predicted, developed into a 1st class fishery. Both, in the quality of the fishing, and the lakes themselves as an un spoilt natural, aquatic environment.

We have worked very hard over the past 7 years to create the perfect Carp lake, breaking the mold of the "commercial" fishery in several ways.

Commercial ?  Not a word I like to use to describe the lakes, as it tends to paint a picture of exactly what I've bee trying hard to avoid here.

Angling pressure has been kept to an absolute functional minimum, in order to preserve the lakes and the angling, and it has now become a real pleasure to fish these un spoilt waters, surrounded by such a variety of wildlife found in and around the natural aquatic environment.

Small groups of anglers only, which means each angler has plenty of water to fish, which should make a nice change for lots of you who fish in France.


Fishing at the Graviers will certainly re introduce the achievement factor back into your carp fishing. They don't give themselves up easy here, you will have to work at it to get results.

I would tend to recommend it to the more advanced and experienced carp angler, people who prefer a non crowded water, and a fairly difficult level of angling.

The lake is not "over populated", it has a very natural balance of carp and other species.




There have been 2 dvd's filmed at the Main lake, both beautifully filmed productions from the ORIGINAL VIDEO COMPANY.

5 Days in France,

Filmed in the season of 2003, with Frank Warwick and Lee Jackson.

Tactics, approach, rigs and some cracking fish caught, well worth a look for all types of carp anglers, and especially those interested in fishing the Main lake!

P.B's for Frank, and some excellent stalking footage with Lee, definitely not to be missed.


Tactical Carpin

Filmed in 2004, the Gardner team enjoy a great week at the lake, plenty of tactics as the title suggests. More huge carp caught on camera again, another must for all keen carp anglers, and a good insight into the lak

Back on the Rods

Filmed in May, 2007, Carp angling legend Rod Hutchinson is joined by his good friend Ian Coates. Over 20 fish caught, including Rod's new P.B.

Hutchy's "back on the rods" was not produced by Original Video Company
