A visa will not be need for travel to France for less than 90 days after Brexit. A Covid inoculation certificate will probably be need for travel to France as well as the UK and many other countries. Health insurance will be needed and can be taken out as part of your general travel insurance for the week. The biggest issue could well be the extra time taken at customs both ends...we shall see.

Have just heard from the owner of the lake I am due to visit next year.
Unfortunately they have had to cancel my holiday as they are planning to de-silt the lake, remove the snags (there weren't that many anyway), and stock with some new fish. The uncertainty of Covid/Brexit has prompted them to make this decision.
She has carried over my payment from this year, so I have a weeks fishing in 2022 in what should be a much improved venue.
I was offered a full refund of my money now if I didn't want to wait, but I'll wait. The venue is that good.

By sheer luck when I fished last year I decided on the lake to have a year off so I missed this year.

Have booked back on for next September - £100 deposit and pay on arrival so will see how it goes.

You won't need a visa for short trips like a week or two.

There is every chance that travel to France will be subject to proof of Covid vaccination as well as valid health insurance and visa ,there are probably countless other hoops you will need to travel to the EU states after the 31st of December,but these are three i have read in a study into traveling to the EU next year, the amount of hoops will depend on the deal we make, so i wouldn't count ya chickens for next year just yet

That's all that matters at the end of the day!

I think the whole vaccine before travel is a slippery slope. There will be so many variables and exceptions, that it will make it pointless having that rule, especially if other countries don't follow suit.

Thank you David, but It is what it is. I have my health, as do my family. In the grand scheme of things having that and a roof over my head with the bills paid is all that matters, I'm sorry for those who haven't had a smoother ride through this. I've had 2 France trips cancelled to due to both the first and second lockdown. The latest cancellation for the family holiday is for April 2021! I don't see the logic, but then again logic has been lost a few times through this. Strange times.

Thatís one way of looking at it. I go because I enjoy it.
With the vaccines on the horizon itís looking more positive. The quarantine period is being cut to 5 days. I do wonder if theyíll make you have the vaccine to travel.

Sorry to hear that you have had 3 holidays cancelled and the last was April, is that next April or last April? I have had 2 holidays cancelled this year (non fishing) and great difficulty in getting my money back, but eventually I have. I would like to think that the majority of people who booked fishing trips in France are satisfied by what they have been offered as compensation for their cancelled trip?

There really is no point in booking anything at present. I've booked and rebooked a family holiday 3 times now and had it cancelled on all occasions, the latest being for April!. Judging by the posts on here, these pay lakes make their own rules up as they go and you're taking a massive risk with your money, as they have the ability to say "soz, we have bills to pay too". Never understood why you would want to go to a different country only to be surrounded by english people, on an english run lake, waiting for Dorris in the wooden clubhouse to ring the dinner bell only to be handed a cold fry up, but each to their own I guess!

My avatar 6 years ago was going to put it back but the owner insisted I had a pic so him and another placed it in my arms with mats all around as been after it for 4 years .
He knew I was crocked .
A 20 lb fish is my limit for picking them up .
