Welcome To Lac Serreire & Badger's Holt - The Ultimate Carp Fishing Experience in France

This stunning two lake venue, open since 2003, is set in the beautiful Limousin countryside just 20 miles south of the regions capital Limoges and its international airport.


Owned and operated by highly respected carp angler Bob Davis, Lac Serreire is the ultimate French carp fishing venue. We have two superbly stocked lakes available to fish. Lac Serreire itself is 20 acres in size and has a stock of carp up to the mid 50lbs. Badger's Holt is the smaller of the two in size only! This is predominantly a big fish water with last years biggest catch coming in at 60lb 4 ounces!


Lac Serreire - The largest of the two lakes at 24 Acres.

This beautiful and well stocked 24 acre lake holds stocks of carp up to the mid fifties. In this prolific water the average weight is steadily rising. By the start of the 2008 season the average weight will be in the mid thirties.


The Large Lake is available for up-to six anglers per week including the use of a chalet cottage equipped with all the necessities to make your stay a comfortable one.


This is an ideal venue for the angler who likes to take on a challenge and offers an excellent opportunity to top that personal best.

Boats for pontoon anglers are available to hire and bait boats are allowed on the water.
