the European Specimen Fishing Centre, Fishabil, was created in 1989 by Raphaël Faraggi. Today, this is the foremost Fishing Centre of the world in terms of visitors, quality and size of the stock and the importance of the infrastructures. The record is a Mirror Carp of 34kg (almost 75lbs) and to be noted is the presence of a huge catfish of 111kg (244lbs 11oz).
after 2 years of work and a colossal investment, never before seen in the industry at the time, this lake was created in 1989. The works consisted of a 2km re-routing of a river, the construction of an accommodation complex, redoubling the lake’s surface, restocking with 50 tonnes of record-sized fish and a lorry-full of 6 tonnes extra every year for 23 years, design and re-profiling of the lake and the planting of 700 trees, plus more.
fishing for the average weights is easy enough, more difficult for the larger ones who are cunning; for those with the know-how, it’s possible to catch dozens of carp of over 30-40lbs with the promise of a larger catch. If you don’t get the best daily catch, someone nearby will! The amount of bait is essential for success here, given the population density of fish and the size of the lake.

this gravel quarry, curiously nicknamed the ‘Isles Cubed’ (Isles3) comprises 3 islands over 25 hectares (almost 62 acres) of water, formerly named ‘The Three Islands’ and previously, ‘Domaine of the 5 Lakes’, was dug out in the 1970s. It forms part of a group of connected water features and has links with the river Seine.
for more than 20 years, these lakes have formed a dead channel of the Seine in a naturally abundant habitat. A population of wild carp have settled in these gravel quarries along with a majority of common carp. Since exploitation of the quarry ceased, nature has reclaimed her rights and the parcels have been dyked to create 6 distinct, wild and separate water features.
around 800 carp were introduced, into an existing stock of around 2-300, in 2006. There are neither catfish nor sturgeon. Record catches; a Mirror Carp of 34kg (74lbs 15oz) and a Common Carp of 33kg (72lbs 12oz).
