Change of plan works out al­right

Carpworld - - ECHOES -

Barry Robin­son had a trip down to the River Lot planned for the late spring/early sum­mer but, af­ter days of rain, he was wor­ried about the state of the river. So at the last minute he changed plans and ended up at Etang Baudy, a beau­ti­ful lake, owned by Wally and Jan Holder on the out­skirts of St Yrieix in the Li­mousin re­gion. They kindly fit­ted him in with­out any no­tice or fuss. It turned out to be a good move – he did six nights and had 19 carp to 46lb. This in­cluded five 20s, five 30s and two 40s. Noth­ing was too much trou­ble for the most knowl­edge­able of own­ers and dur­ing the ses­sion Barry even man­aged a triple take and their help was in­valu­able. Barry com­mented: “The res­i­dent carp are some of the fittest, hard­est-fight­ing fish I have ever en­coun­tered, it was a joy to fish there!”
