Do you fancy coming and fishing Gigantica for free?

Carp lakes are often home to fantastic fish of other species, and that is certainly the case with Gigantica, in France!

Often there isn’t the opportunity to target this type of water for anything other than carp without paying the full price to do so, meaning that this type of fishing is relatively untapped – but here is your chance to sample it for free!

It isn’t just the carp which grow to huge sizes in Gigantica, which is located just a few hours drive from Calais, near Troyes in the Champagne region, with both tench and bream in excess of 10lb having been caught, along with some stunning rudd topping 4lb, and with lots of specimens between 1lb and 3lb, plus some very big roach!

Unfortunately, although big for the species, none of them put up much of a fight on the tackle that is needed to land the big carp, and they are viewed as a bit of a nuisance when they pick up a rig intended for the carp.

So with that in mind, these fish are being relocated to a nearby water where they can be properly appreciated by anglers who want to fish for them, and we are giving you the chance to come out to Gigantica, free-of-charge, and to help remove them.

Between now and the end of October we will be offering two anglers at a time the chance to come and experience some of the superb fishing on offer, catching these other species on rod and line.

Not only will your trip be free, but we will also put you up overnight in our staff quarters as well as feeding you, and groundbait and pellets will also be supplied for you to use. We are looking for anglers who are proficient at both pole and feeder fishing, and if you and a mate would like to come over together then we can accommodate you – wherever in Europe you are travelling from, as this offer is open to anyone!

Gigantica boss Danny Fairbrass explained: “We are looking for anglers of any nationality to come and bag up on these species so that we can move them quickly and safely to a better home.

“So if you and a mate are up for some non-stop action on the feeder or pole, then get in touch as this is very much on a first-come, first-served basis, and we doubt whether we will be able to offer this opportunity again any time soon.”

So if you fancy going on the trip-of-a-lifetime, then all you need to do is contact James Turner: james.turner@korda.co.uk
