Welcome to Etang Cache:

About us

We are Steve (the skinny one) and Dave (the fat bloke) and between us we have been carping for well over 50 years, which is actually a really frightening thought...

Our dream was to find an ancient lake in France with original carp, add to these with selected stockies, keep the features and snags and end up with a lake that we would want to fish. Four years later we have l’étang caché.

Now we would like to share our lake with you.

About Your Holiday

L’étang caché normally run weeks from Saturday to Saturday, we will take mid-week breaks if workable. You will need to book and pay for your return flight to and from Limoges Airport.

Both Flybe, and Ryanair, fly from the UK.

You should arrange your own holiday and travel insurance. For those of you who would like to be mobile, Avis supply discounted car hire for people who travel with Flybe.

About the water:

Ancient lake, new venue

Set in secluded woodland on the borders of the Dordogne and Haute-Vienne, l’étang caché is about an hours drive south of Limoges airport, or 9 hours drive from Boulogne/Calais. The area is famous for good food and wine and we have tried it all and will be happy to pass on our knowledge.

Getting here couldn’t be easier. Driving, the route south is easy, If you are flying, both Ryanair and Flybe depart from various airports in the UK and land at Limoges.

About the fish:

The fishing is superb with a good head of original and stocked, hard fighting mirrors and commons.
