But that’s sending out the complete wrong message about shelf life according to your web site

If you really want to save your trip then I'd just book bounty and buy some freezer baits. With this short notice and with your requirements you most likely won't get any other options

We are off to Italy tomorrow, via France. Will let you know how we get on. We did discover a self cert form on the eurotunnel site (for entry to France) but not sure if its needed for entry to France but will take anyway. Cant ever remember french passport control being there or bothered tbh!

HELP! Booked on a venue 11 July which they have just cancelled, everything in place for the trip, tickets, bait etc. I am looking for a small lake for two anglers and one non fishing guest.It doesn't have to be a massive fish venue but must have accom. and be within easy reach of Calais[Tunnel]. It appears all the big lakes are fully booked but we would prefer a small private lake anyway. Any ideas?

Nothing to be relaxed before the 29th June at the earliest. I work in travel and we’ve been given assurances that air bridges will start to be opened up from then as long as the pandemic is still under control..

Other thing to think about is if an area (Manchester/ London/ Liverpool etc) is under local lockdown due to a spike in cases you may be advised to return home by border control and quarantine rather than be able to travel..

I don't know how the two week isolation will be policed anyway.
Also I can't see it lasting for long as the travel industry is collapsing at the moment and it can't be sustained the way it is.
I really can't see it lasting long and I think if your off next week for a week you will probably be just fine.

We I hope so anyway.

They use something called Triangulation but it's not normally used unless it's really justifiable like tracking down terrorists etc.
They measure the phone signals from 3 or more cell towers and where it intersects is where you are

Had a phone call today from a lady who asked me had I travelled from France in the last 14 days.
She asked if I was self isolating which I confirmed I was.
She then asked if I knew what the corona virus symptoms were which I confirmed that I did.
She then told me not to go to a doctors or a hospital if I had the symptoms stay at home unless they got really severe in which case to phone 999.
Never asked me if I was at home.

Yes please I also would also like to know if this is enforced.
I have already cancelled two holidays, been to work every weekday since Christmas break finished. Not been to shops or out other than for exercise. Social distanced at work, had all breaks alone and used copious amounts of soap & gel.
Now I want to drive to a lake staying in my car all the way (Eurotunnel) have my food and bait delivered to the swim each day as required, leave the lake once to fill up (pay at pump) and come home the same way encountering ****ing no one. So if some dogmatic evolutionary cul-de-sac jobsworth wishes to bugger that up I may get a little cross.
Thanks this has been cathartic.

French quarentine is not mandatory. Bars, restaurants and shops are open with 1 meter distancing. A few places require you to wear a mask, but not many.

Ok, I traveled back today lunchtime and it was pretty quiet.
All vans were sent through the X ray machine.
I was asked to put on a mask whilst my van went through.
French customs didn’t even look at my passport just waived me straight through.

English customs were a different matter, they ask you to produce the form either printed or electronically.
Loads of questions about where I’d been and what I had been doing.

They also asked what I done for a living and had I been working in France.
When I replied no the guy then produced a pamphlet and told me I would have to self isolate for 14 days at the address I submitted on the form.

When I asked him how this was going to be policed he seemed a bit uncertain whether it actually would be.
Apparently you will be contacted at home to see if you are there.

I only stopped twice for fuel and everyone had a mask on and although I never went to the supermarket my mate said that masks I to be worn and that the gendarmes are parked outside making sure everyone complies.

In a nutshell you can travel but I expect things will be quite busy and slow at the ports when fisheries open up.
Make sure you carry masks and fill in the form before you return, there is £ 100 fine if you refuse to comply.

Good luck.

Train mate, had to go online this morning an fill in a form that you have to produce at customs.
Basically asking for passport details, travel arrangements and where you intend to self isolate when you get home.
You cannot fill in the form more than 48 hours before you travel so you will need internet access at the latter part of the week

We're off to Aqvatika in Italy on 26th. Tunnels booked and France should be open on 15th, so should be fine. Even if they weren't open, they allow transit to another country. Can't wait to get the rods out 🎣🎣

Great to be back😁💥
Monsters crashing all around happy days 😍
So we drove all the way down no probs at all. Didn’t see an official or gendarme at all. English customs waved us through no stop and french customs was closed up.
George and I are registered to work here with a permanent residence so didn’t anticipate any real grief. I don’t know how it works for non residents at the moment I think it’s being reviewed about the 15th, good luck 🤞🤞

Whichever means of transport you intend to use doesn´t matter, the rules and the paperwork are the same. If you are going out sometime in June and not returning until after 29 June, I would suggest that the quarantine rules will have been lifted by that return date and you won´t have to worry! I am going to Spain on 5 July for 4 days, not fishing but golfing and buying duty free cigars (lots of them).

5 of us had a week booked on Parco next month but informed last week that our flights had been cancelled. Contacted Antonio and Nicholas and they were quick to offer remaining dates in 2021 & 2022 at no extra cost to us.

Credit where credit is due and some good dates sorted for 2022.

Fingers crossed too for a trip to Abbey in October this year.

I thought it was'nt so much the travel out which is the problem (French borders opening 15th June)
but more the 14 day quarantine on returning to the UK after the 8th June?

I realise it will be hard to enforce it but there will be checks and if you are working will your employers
be happy for you to break it? (unless you have a 3 week holiday!)

Isn't the border still closed with the 100km travel limit in place for the French.
I know it is hoped this will be lifted shortly but I thought it is currently still in place.

If it's voluntary the French would do nothing....it's voluntary. If something is voluntary and you don't do it then it's your choice. You can say to people " it's up to you if you quarentine or not" and then when they don't say" oh you haven't quarentined so you need to stay here for a other week or two".

The website says 14 days quarantine. Voluntary or not,where would someone stand if they tried to travel back before the 14 day period? Would the french authorities stop the journey home? Would they then force a further 14 days?

It's voluntary. No need to quarentine here in France for UK anglers. I thought this part of the French government website statement was quite clear.
Similarly, travellers coming from the United Kingdom, regardless of nationality, will be requested to carry out voluntary quarantine once the British quarantine measures officially enter into force.

From the same website....For travellers arriving from inside the European space (European Union Member States, the United Kingdom, Andorra, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Monaco, Norway, San Marino, Switzerland, Holy See), the borders are not closed but will still be subject to certain restrictions on movement as part of border controls.

Most anglers only go for a week to 10 days. Does that mean you have to stay in France for a minimum of 14 days ? If you travel to and from a venue in that 14 day window, surely that means you haven't complied with the 14 day quarantine?

I'm nor trying to be awkward, but to my eyes, it still looks rather vague

Travellers arriving by air from Spain will be invited to carry out a voluntary quarantine from Monday, 25 May. This applies to Span ish and French nationals and all other nationalities. Similarly, travellers coming from the United Kingdom, regardless of nationality, will be requested to carry out voluntary quarantine once the British quarantine measures officially enter into force.

I don't think any body really knows how it will be on the 8th June when it's due to come into force and then when its reviewed 3 weeks later. It is interesting to note that our current daily death rate is 10 times that in most EU countries so why would they want us in at the moment.

I'd be amazed if all this quarantine business isn't all cancelled after the 1st 3 wk review due to the amount of pressure the government is under from travel and tourism bodies. The Home secretary was adjusting the legislation for it yesterday in the house of commons before it's even come into force!! Cant see it lasting at all if I'm honest.

I agree its not clear but in your statement you forgot to add the list of exemptions which then used the word voluntarily quarantine:

The following people will be exempt from voluntary quarantine, except if they show symptoms:
people in transit to another country;
crew members and people operating passenger and cargo flights, or travelling as passengers to their departure point;
international freight transporters;
coach and train drivers and crew;
crew members and people operating merchant and fishing vessels;
foreign health professionals helping fight COVID-19;
staff of diplomatic and consular missions and of international organizations with headquarters or offices in France, as well as their spouses and children;
French and foreign domestic security or defence forces personnel returning from missions, or on mission, staff of the judicial authority carrying out its work, and State employees posted abroad or returning from missions, as well as their spouses and children;
cross-border workers;
people with compelling family reasons (travel justified for the purpose of transferring custody of or having access or staying access to a child; continued schooling; urgent assistance to a loved one; the funeral of a close relative) ;
people allowed to enter France for economic reasons if they are staying for less than five days. The quarantine conditions applicable to seasonal and posted workers permitted to enter are set out in the directive of 20 May 2020.

Now that the 14-day mandatory quarantine when returning to the UK is formally announced from Mon 8th June, I wonder what will that mean for the voluntary message in France. See last point below:

Travellers entering France from the UK

From Monday 25 May 2020, the French Government is putting in place a voluntary 14-day quarantine measure for travellers arriving from certain countries.
For travellers arriving from European countries whose authorities have decided, in an uncoordinated fashion, to apply 14-day quarantine measures to travellers entering their territory from European countries, a voluntary 14-day quarantine period will be reciprocally requested. For example, from Monday 25 May onwards, travellers arriving from Spain, on flights only, will be asked to go into voluntary quarantine, because Spain imposed a quarantine system on 15 May for travellers arriving in Spain by plane. This applies to travellers of Spanish, French and all other nationalities.

Travellers arriving from the UK, whatever their nationality, will be asked to go into a 14-day quarantine when the British 14-day quarantine measure actually comes into force, i.e. on 8 June.

This was put on euronews 6hrs ago
France

Prime Minister Edouard Philippe announced plans to reopen France's border to EU countries and the UK from June 15, following the plans of other EU countries.

For the time being travel into France is restricted with only essential travel allowed for those who don't live in the country.

Travellers arriving from the UK or Spain will be subject to a voluntary quarantine. Those from outside the EU or UK will still not be able to travel to France except for in limited circumstances, while EU countries are still to decide when they will reopen external borders.

Hopefully we’ll hear from the FCO this week with more advise on the quarantine restrictions and when we’ll expect them to be lifted in the UK..

More from Connextion.


The law on extending the state of health emergency to July, currently being debated by Parliament, includes the possibility of requiring any person entering the country to go into quarantine. At present this is not expected to include arrivals from EU countries or the UK but this has not been ruled out.

So if I'm reading this right the French quarantine is going to be mandatory rather than voluntary now for us if we visit.
That completely screws any chance of going on a week's trip to a lake in Limoges in 3 weeks time unless the UK changes its plan before then....

If the UK enforces a 14 day quarantine policy then France will enforce the same :

"France will impose a reciprocal quarantine on nationals arriving in France that impose quarantine on French citizens."

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-52781812

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2020/05/23/france-threatens-retaliate-british-quarantine-measures/

The only way we'll be going to France is either for 3 weeks (including 2 weeks at a single indoor location) or by the UK lifting the restrictions.

The voluntary quarantine is only for "returning French citizens and permanent residents arriving from outside the European Union and the European Economic Area, which includes the U.K. and Switzerland":

https://www.politico.eu/article/france-to-introduce-voluntary-14-day-quarantine-for-some-travelers/

Hopefully, the government see sense and remove the 14 day quarantine. I know the Travel Industry is putting a lot of pressure on the government, but I can't see any changes being made until mid July at the earliest.

Hope I'm wrong...

Stay there in France until the isolation rules have been scrapped, my guess will be that will be 3 weeks after they are officially in place. I am off golfing in Spain on 5th July and no plans to go into self isolation when I return, thanks Dom, all is clear now!

The general opening of borders to non-EU nationals will be decided in coordination with EU27. France will impose a reciprocal quarantine on nationals arriving in France that impose quarantine on French citizens.Parks and gardens as well as lakes and beches to open across France from 2 June.

The French Prime Minister is to address the country this Thursday (May 28) to detail the second phase of deconfinement, including whether bars and restaurants will reopen, and if travel beyond 100km will be allowed.

A new colour map - updated from the previous one published on May 7 - will show which departments will be considered “green” or “red” for the purposes of the next stage of deconfinement.

This is based on three criteria in the given department: how much the virus is spreading, how stretched the local intensive care services are, and how many tests are available for the general public.

According to predictions made by news service FranceInfo, it is suggested that come June 2, only Île-de-France might still be in red.

The rule that limits travel to within 100km of your home (as the crow flies) may change on June 2. Junior transport minister Jean-Baptiste Lemoyne said in an interview this week that “a significant expansion” of this radius may be possible.

https://www.connexionfrance.com/French-news/Deconfinement-in-France-Prime-minister-Edouard-Philippe-to-outline-second-phase-from-June-2

With EasyJet commencing flights from UK to France from 15th June, maybe they’ll include an update this Thursday on travel into France for tourism.

It's an interesting one this as it's voluntary. For a normal one week trip you will declare yourself back at French customs at Calais within the 14 day quarantine period. You'll be at the mercy of the French border authorities at this point having breached the request to isolate. Perhaps they will simply say go home or perhaps they won't 😂
This of course also relies on the French lifting the 100k travel restrictions on 15 June.

This on connexion in France
Travellers arriving in France from the UK - regardless of nationality - will be invited to enter a voluntary two-week quarantine upon arrival, from June 8, the French government has said.

The new rule was confirmed in a press release issued by the French ministry of foreign affairs in an effort to continue the fight against Covid-19.

The statement suggests that the quarantine will be voluntary.

This is in contrast to the UK’s rules, which will include fines of up to £1,000 (€1,115) and spot checks at quarantine addresses for people arriving in the UK.

There has been no suggestion that France will spot check or fine visitors arriving in France at this stage.

The following people will be exempt from voluntary quarantine, except if they show symptoms:
- people in transit to another country;


Yeah, because people who have an onward flight 24 hours after arriving at Heathrow sit in the hotel room, of course they don't go to see Big Ben and the "big wheel"...

That's cos the seasonal fruit pickers are held captive on the farm they go to and aren't allowed to go anywhere else so they say they quarantine where they work.

My local farm bus about 30 of them to the local Aldi every week . When they aren't working, they are roaming the streets.

"Don't forget to quarantine yourself for 14 days upon arriving back in the UK"

Brits won't do it. Those here for business won't do it. Those here on holiday won't do it. Those onward travelling won't do it. Those who fly here to get onto cargo ships won't do it.... completely futile exercise and will not be monitored.

Those who arrive on dinghy's in the channel get their details taken and told to go to Croydon in two weeks time to claim asylum.

This country...

Oh, did you know that Belgium has the worst Covid 19 outbreak in Europe? The death rate per million is nearly twice that of the UK. They may well be a smaller country and their overall numbers significantly lower than ours but their death rate is the second worst in the world (were the 5th worst hit country btw).

Let's hope that this diplomatic row gets sorted quiçkly and our government works with our EU partners to resolve the situation.

To be fair we are from having the worst stats if you take cases and deaths per population into consideration let alone population density compared to all other countries and I also think every government in the world is making it up as they go along probably because we're in an unprecedented situation. Which if anyone is to blame then that should lay firmly at the feet of the Chinese and Who imo.

Absolute idiocy from the UK government. I am sick of being treated like a child. Coronavirus is on the way out. If we needed to quarantine arrivals into the UK for 2 weeks then that needed to be done 2 months ago, not just as we are seeing the end of this. there's not much I agree with Trump about but as he has said previously, the cure cannot be worse that the problem and at the moment this leaderless bunch of morons we have in government are making it up as they go along...and doing that badly.

2 months ago, there were people literally dying in the streets in Bergamo, Italy but yet there were 4 Ryanair flights arriving from there a day at Stansted airport. No quarantine, no checks, nothing. I know that, because I work for them.

And now, they decide to implement this lunatic decision with no science base to it whatsoever. It is not arrivals to the UK that we need be fearful of, if anything it is UK citizens travelling abroad because, thanks to the ineffective leadership of these clowns we have the worst coronavirus stats in Europe....

This useless government is determined to destroy the UK travel and tourism industry.

Just seen the French are bringing in a reciprocal 14 day quarantine that will mirror ours that comes in on 8th June.
I think this means my trip on 20th June is finally dead in the water.
We'd have to have a building to isolate in for 14 days which obviously just isn't possible.

I feel the same way I was due out 13th June but moved travel to the 15th which would have been fine if the French allowed travel. A friend asked me last night did I really want to travel to France , my response was I would more then likely catch it over here sat on a beach with half naked people or going to the supermarket then I would sitting in my van getting there then sat on lake with one other person.

This is going to stop any french travel as it looks like france are going to make uk travellers quarantine for 2 weeks on arrival and as we cannot provide an address we will be either put in hotel or turned back I am due out in 6 weeks os hopefully the virus rate drop enough for us to go or they introduce this air bridging what amazes me is the seasonal workers like strawberry pickers are exempt what's that all.about, that's it I am going strawberry picking in france
We must control this virus but allowing people to travel unlimited distances as only made a complete joke of this situation you only got to look at beaches parks and other beauty spots
And we not allowed to sit on our own next to a lake in france

33000 deaths isn't scare mongering, if we had not had a lockdown the scientists (you know, people that learnt and studied virology) think we may have had 500000 deaths due to Covid 19 with the NHS overwhelmed.

Do you think the whole pandemic is a plan to control the people? The NHS response and nightingale hospitals a scam to control you as well?

They are making a big song and dance over this is an effort to continue their control over the population by scare mongering .. as they have done all along ... they’ve already hinted that the reacation and objections from the airlines , ferries , Tunnel etc is so massive that the whole suggestion is under immediate review ...
Boris said a few weeks agai that “ the government would make every effort to prop up the UKs tourist industry “ and I guess this is it !, ... Go outdoors announced yesterday an 460 % increase in camping gear sales over this time last year ! ..
Yep , the government is helping the local tourism industry alright - by scaring everyone to stay in the U.K. !

Its a complete joke. If anything people should be stopping us from going into their countries, every day our rates are much higher then the rest of Europe. When asked yesterday why they didn't do this from the start when thousands of people were still coming into the country the response was it would not have made a difference.

We're due to go to Limoges on 20th June so in a similar boat to yourself.
Haven't booked the tunnel yet but will soon start planning kit etc.
I think if the UK and French figures drop then we've got a fair chance of going.

I’ve got a tunnel crossing 15th June AM having moved it from this evening (FFS). The 15th is the day I think the French border reopens. I’m happy to self quarantine on the way back, but not sure if France is making people quarantine their side after the 15th? Obvs pointless if they are, but read conflicting things on web. Other issue is UK lifting non essential travel, but fingers crossed for something in second phase / 1st June onwards.

Anyone else looking to travel at first opportunity?

The UK 2 week quarantine requirement if kept in place has just stopped most foreign fishing holidays.

Yep, a few will go ahead, retired people, home workers, those able/willing to make a 1 week trip a 3 week period with the 2 weeks at home after the fishing in self quarantine.


Maybe the new rise in home working will help bookings?



Fingers crossed UK and France Covid 19 cases continue to reduce and France get an exemption like other countries will low Covid 19 cases as talked about today

Initially it doesnt look good I agree , however they have said it will be reviewed every three weeks , plus the airlines , Tunnel , ferries etc will be putting enourmous pressure on the Gov to lift it otherwise it’s the final nail in the coffin for them .

Whilst you may well be able to drive in France, the Daily Mail is reporting the 14 day quarantine deal with France will only apply to freight and business travel.
Truth is I don't think anybody knows with any certainty at present.

Just seen this post from our good friends from next door on the Goncourt complex.... Pascale has been in touch with the French government, regarding French fishing and travel.. heres hoping virus levels are under control...
.. Good evening,
I have a little bit of a good news for everyone. A few days ago I have been sending a letter to our Prime Minister and I have received an answer from him today.
English people will be definitely able to travell France from the 15th of June if the COVID 19 figures don’t get worse...
I was really pleased with the prompt reply and the positive outcome. 🙏🙏🙏🍾🍾🍾 so looking forward to having the life and soul back in the complex !!!
Love to you all !!!
Pascale ❤️

If that is true Gary it will make a lot of people happy who have trips planned, myself included as my April trip obviously didn't happen.
Also I am sure a lot of places have had trips after this cancelled by the anglers just as a precaution so I imagine there's going to be plenty of late bookings to be had.

Thanks for the update.
Hopefully it is the case.

No. The UK will remain a member of the European Union until 31 January 2020, when the current extension of the Article 50 period expires, unless it ratifies the Withdrawal Agreement negotiated with the EU by the end of December, which could allow the UK to leave on 1 January 2020.

The notification to leave the EU was sent on 29 March 2017, also referred to as the triggering of Article 50. The UK was originally due to leave at 11pm on 29 March 2019, when the original two-year Article 50 period came to an end. But this was extended to 12 April 2019 and then to 31 October when the UK failed to ratify the Withdrawal Agreement. The latest extension of Article 50 is the third to date.

The UK has LEFT the EU, we have no MEP in the EU parliament anymore.

I would guess the UK government knows a little better than a carp forum.

That's not relevant that's an agreement between France and the UK, not the UK and the EU.

Might not make a **** of difference to YOU, but for those wanting to travel to other EU countries it makes a massive difference, which is why I picked the poster up on it in the first place.

There is a possibility that the EU borders will be closed for non EU members.
Or you should put yourself 14 days in quarantaine before entering.
This is still in debate within the EU.
Current rumors only talk about free traffic only for EU members.
Don't know how this will play out...

Also this article:
https://www.connexionfrance.com/French-news/End-of-lockdown-in-France-travel-rules

Which finishes with the statement “ Rules on international travel are not expected to change in May. Borders will remain closed until further notice. The restrictions will be maintained until at least June 15 with European countries unless there are imperative reasons to travel, such as work or an urgent family reason (childcare for divorced parents for example). ”

As far as I know, the whole of France´s 100 regions have been classified as either red (strongest restrictions) or green (less restrictions), having watched a sky news article earlier it was suggested that you can travel from a green to green region but not stopping at all in a red region, you are not allowed to travel from a red to green, or green to red region, sounds like a plan!

There's an interesting article in the independent today about the French lockdown. A huge chunk of NE and some east central parts of France are classified red . This includes Paris the champagne area, Dijon and venues close to Belgium and German borders.

Red means these areas are going to come out of lockdown more slowly than orange/green areas. Brittany and parts of Normandy are green/orange areas.

So, it looks like it's gonna depend where you venue is that might determine whether or not you will be able to fish. I'm sure there are other variables too, but anyone with a venue to the north east/est central might be disappointed.

Think you will be ok in September, unless of course there a resurgence of the virus before then.

2 hours sat on-line and still waiting to talk to a customer services rep. This could take a while. I have been given a credit note but you cannot use it on-line and have to go through customer services. Tried phoning as well but recorded message tells you to do everything via website.

Laughable isn’t it? Booked it through Ferrysavers and a have requested a voucher twice so that I can rebook for September and this is the first response I have received. I will ring them today to find out what they intend to do.

Looks like a French health minister wants to stop anyone traveling to France until at least the 24th of July.
And if they do then they will have to self isolate for two weeks.
They vote on it next week.

I think they are looking at stopping big gatherings of people like at football etc as with golf you can social distance yourself so maybe they will take that stance on fishing
Rather be on a bank social distancing than stood in a supermarket queue lol

Today the French cancelled their Ligue 1 football program and in doing so also announced. "no sporting activity until September". They haven't expanded on what that means exactly so watch this space. They may mean events with spectators, for example.

I've missed my April trip as many have but have one later in the summer so am feeling optimistic about this one.
Hopefully we can all get out again soon.

Hi All !
The French authorities today have declared the following -
As from the 11th May all businesses can re open ( not bars/ restaurants/hotels/cafes)
This means we can legally “open”
But ......we are not allowed to travel more than 100kms and not allowed to cross a county line.
Over the next few days /weeks the government will tell us more.
Also .....the government will start to open regions of France that are deemed “green” or “safe” and this will be from the middle of May.
The second phase of opening France will start on the 2nd June and we think then that is when people will be able to go on holiday with bars and restaurants being opened again. However, we all just have to be very very patient and see how this all pans out.
This is what is happening in France. The UK has still to decide what it’s going to do.
As I find out more I will update on here.
We are due regular updates from the French government.
I will be contacting all affected groups in due course. Please be patient.
Stay safe and “wash your hands!”

Looks like it will be June now

Well I'm proper in limbo at the moment, I was due out to angling lines blue lake on 16th of May, I'd accepted it weren't going to happen so waited on angling lines to contact us, so they gave us a choice of dates all for July and August but to lepinet instead, the only date we could all do was the 11th of July so we chose that thinking that was it but they then told us they hadn't cancelled our original booking so if restrictions are lifted before then we'd have to go and now macron is talking about lifting the travel ban on the 11th I havnt a clue whats going to happen, we could be left with a few days to get all our stuff ready.

Euro tunnel extended my frequent traveler for a year which I thought was pretty decent, should give me chance to get some trips in. Got trips to LDB and ribiere in august/ October.
Abbey have given me a 50% refund and then another 50% in September to help their cashflow. Difficult times, I'm happy enough with that if it keeps them going.

I'm only visiting a small fishery, due on 6th June, so while we are still hoping it will go ahead, I think realistically we've resigned ourselves to the fact that we won't be going.
Have spoken to the lake owner who has offered us a date for next year which has been pencilled in "just in case".

A friend of mine should have been at bluewater this week
His party were offered a date in 2022 as lake fully booked until then, which he declined as he booked 2 and a half years ago. Full refund given. The question is, if they are doing this, why can't others?

Very true mate. Those anglers on here who have been on the wrong end of deposits being lost/taken, i’m sure will not go to any of the lakes mentioned ..also, I doubt the many anglers seeing these issues will also go also go elsewhere..
What surprises me is, the fisheries, the owners, the issues, they have not come forward to disprove the information?? Why??? There have been quite a few with Domaine de la Ribière, and with Abbey to name but a handful. Checking on their FB, I see no proper announcement about their intentions during this lockdown, as far as necessary cancellations are concerned, it’s like they pick & choose who to take for a ride..
But there you go, they are out there, be careful people!
And thank god we have a site like this where people can exchange facts!

The thing is when you`ve been fishing and supporting a lake for the last 8 years 2 trips a year, then still support the new owner since he`s taken over you expect the loyalty to be returned in extreme circumstances like now, not to get ripped off for 500 euros

I had a lake exclusive booking with Dream Fishing Holidays to their new venue Maveline w/c 25th April, obviously we are not going.
Absolutely no problems, they just simply moved the booking to the the same week in 2022.
No problem with this, as getting lake exclusive bookings on good venues you have to book in advance and our 2021 trip is already booked.
Same with Eurotunnel & the Ibis hotel, that we had booked for the Friday night.
All was very easy, the lesson is, if your not happy with the response from agent or lake owner dont use them again & search and use the lakes/agents that are thinking about the long term future & have looked after their customers!

My 1st trip as just been mutually cancelled with the lake owner and the trip moved to same date next year..
My trip is to la Saule Paquot.. Tony the owner has been very informative and kept me up to date on what his plans/actions on the coranvirus situation and the effect on his fishery bookings..I was due there 1st week of May.. the fishery owner couldn’t of been more helpful gave me other optional dates he has available for this year or run my trip same date next year.. with the uncertainty of when we will be actually be able to fish abroad I’ve booked my trip for next year.. big thank you to Tony at la Saule Paquot

I’ve also got x2 other dates planned for Holland canal /french rivers .. the good thing with these trips is it’s all public fishing so the only thing that needs changing will be my euro tunnel crossings..

Thanks for tidying Cam, you beat me to it

Both sides of the argument are at fault here...for arguing (unnecessarily)
However, the more aggressive users will get banned (and have been)

Everybody is allowed their say, but once you start getting all high and mighty you'll make yourself look stupid to all the level headed readers/posters.

  • Have your say.

  • Accept that not everyone will agree with you.

  • Let the sensible readers (who don't tend to get involved in the 'toy throwing') decide who they agree with.

    A few members (not only here) are close to being given a CarpForum Style Lockdown so think about that.

    Listen, we can scrape all this back and look at what you have presented to an Army of Carp Anglers!
    It’s wrong! What you have stated doesn’t even work chronologically with Anglers bookings for March, April, May and possibly June.
    This is about decency, respect, relations & compassion during a time of international crisis. Luckily, 99% of fishery owners in France have all that in abundance, and did the right thing... just 1 or 2 trying it on because their business practices exclude compassion and respect for people. They will be exposed!
    The newbies as you call them are not supporting me personally, they simply understand the chronological inaccuracies with your view point: they know your a keyboard warrior, and probably not even a proper carp angler.

    Your statement is:

    It’s the Carp Anglers Fault, and they should man up!!

    May I suggest every Carp Angler on here contact Little Gold alligator, Or whatever his name is, and put all your future booking queries through his ultra wise mind?!!

    Let’s see how you get on mate?
    It’s sooo tempting to just keep on knocking you sideways with details, but I have to rearrange my sock draw, which is more important... And more mind challenging than watching you embarrass yourself further..!

    All I can ask again ….why is anybody bothering paying mega amounts of money out in insurance policies that they then are not claiming on.
    I am waiting for a response from my bank insurance ( 365 cover for travel and health ) for my cancelled trip.
    Obviously there is a massive backlog at the moment. If the bank comes up with reasons why they should not pay out , then I too will have to consider is insurance worthwhile in the future.

    My trip was booked last July ….Paid in January

    UK Gov stopped travel on 17th March ………...one week before my booking

    That to me adds up that it will come out of the bank.

    So perhaps another thread ' Who books foreign fishing trips correctly '?

    So YellowCroc, why, if everyone should be claiming under their Insurance policies are lake owners agreeing to move trips to later in the year or in our case, the same week next year?

    It is exactly the same difference as giving a refund except for the fact that they don't actually have to give any money back.............they still can't sell the rearranged week next year so they will lose out on that booking money then. Conversely if they refunded, they could sell the week next year.....no difference.

    Surely if what you are saying is right then the lake owners should do nothing, no refund, no alternative date and we all either claim under our Insurance policy, (if in force) or lose the money.

    The fact that a lot of them are allowing dates to be moved demonstrates to me that they know they haven't got a leg to stand on in these particular circumstances if a refund was demanded.

    Edit....in reply to post 155 in these circumstances you deal with your Travel Agent or in this case the lake owner, (as you booked direct, unless you used an Agent like Angling Lines) if you booked flights or a hotel directly then you would deal with them......your travel insurers will only consider a claim if a resolution cannot be found.....you should even contact your credit card provider first.

    And it's got nothing to do with Motor Insurance, poor comparison there.

    Maybe, just maybe you might be wrong in certain respects here pal....

    Why will insurers expect resolution from the owners ??????????
    Do car insurance go to the other driver or do they deal with the other insurance company.

    Piss poor planning being blamed on others.

    I have a summer break booked ………….. do I piss about trying to contact the hotel ( who will not even have my details yet ). or do I deal with the travel agent and my insurance company

    Not bad for 9 posts …
    I hope a ban is on the way.

    You just compounded the fact that 6 people have failed to take steps to protect themselves at the time of booking.
    As a group you each individually have the option of taking insurance...……...or does your mummy usually sort that out for you on the kids all inclusives………...Ooops

    So easy to blame others ………

    And as for the not wanting to meet you and your angry mates ………



    I think if you survive a ban coming on here with that attitude / mentality something is wrong with this forum.

    Does your insurance cover this type of scenario? As an individual, maybe!!
    But what if you booked for 6 people??
    September, I feel you will be ok.
    The posts I presented were for those that found themselves tied up in the rapid expansion of mishandling deposits for March, April & May.... even June. Most fisheries I’m pleased to say, did the right thing, because, they are Carp Anglers through and through.
    But let’s not forget, paid travel can be rearranged for a later date, but what if there isn’t a later date offered????
    As I say from the start; the posts are not associated to well run fisheries in France that respect their clientele. Simple as that.

    Was I a bit OTT?
    When defending those that have lost a lot of money, let say £2350 on bookings, I think mate, I’ll go as deep as necessary to put these idiots in their place!!
    The words he used are financially dangerous to those who find themselves in situations like BUZZMAN on here, with Ribiere.
    Do you get it; small purple Croc or whatever his stupid name is, is either a fishery owner who has kept money and not refunded, or, a focking keyboard warrior! Also, with regards to bookings and insurance, he is completely wrong and, chronologically, incorrect.
    Be different mate if it were you I was defending.. you’d be right behind this..
    it’s all in the detail.

    Easier said than done mate. Your Insurers will expect the provider to offer a resolution. This is just one reason why I said to Croc boy that it's not black and white but he doesn't like to listen to anyone elses opinion!
