Brie is a truly beautiful lake which was established as a carp fishery by well known carp angler Ron Woodward. Ron was a well respected figure in the angling world but sadly passed away in 2012. He discovered Brie (then known as Etang au Bois) and went on to set it up to his own specification… and we doubt he could have found a nicer place to do it. The venue is an ongoing testament to Ron & you can see that it’s been created by a carp angler for carp anglers. It’s now run by the prominent fish farmer Paul Bachelier.

Brie is booked on an exclusive basis and accommodates up to 4 anglers on the two large double swims which are built out into the water, allowing you to fish the margins on either side of you as well as those on the far bank. The lake record here is currently 56lb.

Set in a Nature Reserve, Brie is tree lined to all but one end, where the view over open fields looks up the driveway to a stunning French country house where the facilities are situated.

” Fish were in immaculate condition and what fighters too! It’s a lovely lake, very quiet, swims are spacious and give plenty of access to all parts of lake. Conclusion? A fabulous venue which is well worth a visit. (3 anglers, 37 fish, 17 x 30’s with many aproaching 40lb plus a 40lb+ common & 37lb Grass Carp) ”
