You can add three quarters of an hour onto your journey if the Sat Nav throws a wobbly in Rouen like it does most times when you drive through there.

It happened when I was out there, not to me fortunately but everyone seemed to know who it was.
This fella seems to be notorious for it but nobody says anything.

I'm sorry to hear that bud, what the **** is wrong with these *****

I was warned that it happens so I set a trap and caught somebody red handed. he won't be getting away with it one way or another trust me.

I've fished loads of times in France at venues with communal freezers for bait, this is the first time I have ever experienced this, and to be honest it's made me feel so sad that on probably what is considered to be the best carp lake in the world, anglers can't trust each other. I always thought that fishing was a great leveler with fishermen treating each other like family, BIG MISTAKE

If I get to go again, I won't be taking any chances that's for sure, something I hate doing but I will air dry and keep it in my swim, or put it in bags chained to the freezers, how bloody sad!

My pal is going to speak to Pascal and his sons Paul and Max about installing some proper CCTV in and around the clubhouse too

Happened to me a few times in the last few years a good friend of mine had 30 kilo taken on his first week when he was there for two weeks.
I have my theories on it and why it goes on.

but if it was stolen it has broken the code of conduct, the golden rule that we anglers should be sticking to, we don't steal from each other do we?

If it was stolen ban the **** you don't need people like that.

Thought that it might be worth mentioning on here.

One thing that did spoil my trip slightly was that I had 15k of bait taken from the freezer while I was there.

I'm sure that it happened on the Friday/Saturday change over half way through our stay, whether somebody took it by mistake or it got stolen I don't know?

At the end of the day it didn't affect my trip, I wasn't catching a load of fish and I had plenty of bait in my swim for the rest of my time fishing. It's not a huge amount of bait and it certainly won't cost a fortune to buy some more, but if it was stolen it has broken the code of conduct, the golden rule that we anglers should be sticking to, we don't steal from each other do we?

I do know who it was now that I am home, and even though I have given him the opportunity to message me he hasn't been in touch yet to tell me that it was a mistake, so I am now assuming that he stole it so I am really looking forward to bumping into him next year, or if I don't get the chance to go, I will certainly be letting people know who he is.

I was told before I went that this happens so I set some little traps just in case. It took me a long time to calm down when it happened, I'm not a happy bunny when sh** like this happens to me, but there's an old saying 'every dog has his day'
