Sign up for the Gigantica work party and get a free trip!

Fancy a free week fishing at one of the top carp holiday venues in France? Then here is your chance to have a session on Gigantica, targeting the monsters which inhabit the complex.

We are looking for anglers to come over and help out on the work party, which is taking place from August 20 until 27, and in return you will receive a free week fishing at the venue, which is home to carp to over 80lb.

The main purpose of the work party is clearing trees from the margins, which will involve pruning and snag clearance, so if you have any experience in this type of work you would be the ideal person, although that isn’t essential.

In return for your hard work, you will get to spend a week at the fishery free of charge – currently there are places on both the main and Road Lake for the week before the work party, so you could take your free week then and make it into a two week trip! If you can’t make it then, you are welcome to take your free week at a later date which suits you, as long as spaces are available at that time. You will need to get yourself to the venue to carry out the work party, but food will be provided whilst you are there.

One angler who took advantage of this offer recently was Jake Homewood, who opted to fish overnight on the Road Lake in-between working on the main lake, and he managed to land seven fish from Turtles Corner, with the best being a fantastic 37lb common, and all of them coming to Banoffee wafters fished over Mainline Spicy Active boilies, which are exclusive to the venue.

The Road Lake has been fishing very well recently, with some of its bigger residents putting in an appearance, and there are still a few places available throughout the rest of the year.

Ben Divers banked the biggest fish in the lake, known as Big Mac, at 53lb from the Birches swim when it picked up a Banoffee wafter fished on a stiff hinge rig. During the same week Jordan Rudd had a great session in the Brambles, with the pick of his catches being a fish known as Petal at 41lb, plus another mirror of 39lb 8oz.

Anyone interested in taking part on the work party should contact James Turner and successful applicants will be notified: james.turner@korda.co.uk
