We have just started a Group on Facebook for all the carp anglers in Brittany to socialize, make new friends and exchange information.

Watercraft Bretagne is a group which has been created to connect carp anglers all across Brittany. 

Everything carp-related is welcome i.e. pictures, videos, information, items for sale, etc.

Blavet Valley Lakes are a superbly run carp fishery with carp in excess of 59 lb. I caught 8 carp in my first 36 hours for an average of 30lb.8oz. Bait and tackle hire available and they have a superb web site.

Have just looked at Clearwaters website and see they charge £50 for 12 hrs. There is no need to pay silly prices like that over here, it's not like UK thank god. Have a look for some French run waters as your local French carper is only prepared to pay around  20 euros a night and there are plenty to go at.   Take a look at  Carpa Trophy as an example.

I am into carp fishing. Glomel is good for carp up to mid 30's. The best bait you can get locally is in the hunting and fishing shop in Callac. It's a local company making freshly rolled freezer bait and pop ups. My Boyfriend and I have both caught fish into the high 40's from around this area on that bait. Good luck,
