Our first visit to Landes, absolutely brilliant, Dave & Tina are fantastic hosts. Dave’s stock of fish are stunning & give a cracking account of themselves. 33 fish landed, inc 5x 40’s to 49lb between 3 anglers. Would we come back again YES X Thanks, Ned, Mark & Ray
Had a great time at Etang des Landes, probably the most peaceful & beautiful setting for a lake I’ve been to. The carp are in fantastic condition & well cared for by Dave. Cannot fault anything, 15 fish to 38lb, I’ll be back for a 40 next time. Lovely hosts available for help & advice whenever needed, yet also leave you to it ! Don’t want to go home ! 28 fish caught altogether between 3 anglers to 41.8lb & 14 lost ! Thanks Dave & Tina for everything & good luck for the future, Stu, Mick & Cliff
Etang des Landes, what a fantastic intimate little venue it is. The fish are of fantastic quality & boy do they fight hard. One of the very few venues I have visited that every fish caught would take pride of place in my photo album. A fantastic weeks fishing topped off with great hosts in Dave & Tina. Would highly recommend Etang des Landes to anyone looking to visit France. 32 fish caught & 5 lost during the week. Thank you all, Tony, Neil, Luke & Charley
Wow ! What a stunning venue you have ! The lake is TRUELY AMAZING & has a lot to offer ! The surroundings are stunning & its such a peaceful place to be ! It was a slow start to the week with warm weather & high pressure! I lost 3 fish early on, but after some helpful advice from Dave a few rig changes were made which saw me land 8 fish in the end! I even let Jasmine have some of the action in landing a 20lb mirror! What beautiful fish all these were & put up a good fight! Looking forward to coming back next year already ! Thanks, Andrew & Jasmine
Thanks Dave & Tina for a tremendous week. The lake is glorious & a real gem, all credit to you both for your hard work. Thanks for keeping us well fed & watered all week, the diet starts tomorrow 🙂 Whilst the angling has been tricky this week the advise from Dave has been invaluable resulting in a new p.b for Neil & a p.b Common for Chris in the form of the Gold Star Common which before the trip was the one I really wanted to catch. Kindest Regards & Best Wishes, See you soon, Chris & Neil
Etang des Landes, well what can I say ……… You’ll be hard pushed to find a more complete and well run fishery anywhere in France. An absolute cracker of a venue, the perfect all rounder, fantastic hosts, brilliant fishing with top draw facilities. An absolutely amazingly maintained picturesque gem of a lake, the kind of venue you’d be proud to call your own. All credit to Dave & Tina, they have created something very special ! Thanks for an incredible weeks fishing (30 plus fish to 43lb and counting – writing this on Friday night) The advice & banter were all spot on ! Wishing you all the best for the future and looking forward to returning. Many Thanks & Tight Lines, Mark & Josh, Big Dave, Little Dave, Cliff & Ricky
Lovely place, Fish are superb. 24 Landed & 4 lost. Dave & Tina are great hosts, warm welcome & great food. We will be back! Many Thanks Graeme, Craig & Dave
I visited on the 18th March 2017 and had a great time. 8 carp to 44.8lb but this is just 1 point. Lovely lake and the carp crash all night, so you know they are there. Friendliest hosts I have meet in 20 years of traveling to France. Food package was excellent and the supplied bait works, so don’t stress about this. Well worth a visit and I am going back for a 50!!! Richard Miles
The Bruford’s Trip ! The Bruford’s return to Etang des Landes for the third time and we are not disappointed, some of EDL’s 30’s on the bank made the planning and preparation worth while. A glorious venue with friendly owners, Dave and Tina, always on hand to assist the old fella with his rig tying and casting techniques, cheers Dave. Wonderful food served up day and night with a cheerful smile. The new EDL specially prepared boilies (free range eggs and all sorts of loveliness) brought fish to the bank. We’ll be back again next year on our mission for those glorious EDL monsters. Thanks from Michael, Matthew & Jeremy.
Joe’s 50th bash ! We’ve been coming to France fishing for 15 years now and this is the best venue to date. Dave and Tina are fantastic hosts, friendly, welcoming and the food package is exceptional. We struggled to get amongst the bigger fish on this trip with the biggest landed 35lb8oz common, 11 landed in total with 6 lost. Would highly recommend Etang des Landes, we will be back for our second trip next year. Adam, Joe & Alan
Great food, venue, fish and owners…..pets included! Penny Klimcke
We have fished in France for 18 years now and can say without doubt that it would be difficult to find a venue of 5 acres that is so near the complete package. The facilities are excellent and the setting is without doubt the best we have ever visited and the fish are in superb condition. Gone are the days where fish crawling up the lines was the normal thing, but if you can crack the code on this lake the fish are absolutely stunning. Dave & Tina can’t do enough for you and the EDL bait applied properly helped us during our session. See you next year !! Catch Report – 15x Mirrors to 53lb12oz (New P.b) 13x Commons to 48lb4oz (New p.b Common) Lost Fish x5. Total Runs x33 Martin & Brent
Thank you Dave & Tina for a great time. Tina’s food was excellent & kept us going. Dave’s advise was very much welcomed. 2 new P.Bs caught just short of our baited area. Already considering what dates we can make next year !! P.s Thank you for the perfect location for Jason to propose to me!!! Penny & Jason
Third time back and the lake is still awesome. Never disappointed with the venue, the fishing or Tina and Dave’s hospitality. Booked again and will come back time and time again for the full experience. Cheers guys. Dierk Russell
I thought it only right to write a review on Etang Des Landes after returning home after a week on this beautiful lake. I would like to say it was so refreshing to meet Dave, an owner that cares so much about his fish, and was always available 24/7 for any help or advisehe could give. And Tina, thanks for keeping us fed throughout the week, i think i have put on more weight than the carp now!!! The three of us have already booked to return next year & hopefully again smash our pb’s again!! Keep up all the good work Dave & Tina, can’t wait till we see you again next year!!! Mark Newman
Absolutely cracking place to fish. Dave and Tina make it a place to remember. Fishing is superb and the fish are stunning, a great place to fish. And get the food package ! Matthew Bruford
Brilliant place to fish in France facilities were excellent food was excellent, would recommend Etang des Landes to any would be fishermen wanting to fish a lake in france. Steve McCann
Just got back from a absolutely brilliant week! Amazing food and hospitality, Dave and Tina were extremely welcoming, most importantly the fishing was great with both of us breaking the 40lb barrier! Already looking forward to next year! Thanks guys. George Williams
What can I say, stunning, quiet place, with over 180 beautiful Carp in it. Had the session of my lifetime so far, with 3 pb’s from 38lb4oz through 40lb12oz to a stunning 45lb12oz so can’t fault it. Would love to come back and would definitely recommend. Marek Uberman
You won’t find a better venue anywhere in France. Simple as that. Adam Matthews
