an otter proof fence, which was erected in
late 2017/18 to protect the stunning fish.
The swims and trees that line the lakes
are also all well maintained but all left as
natural as possible.
As mentioned before, the smaller runs
water called Harry’s Lake (named after
Mark and Leanne’s son) is perfect for first
time carpers visiting France or maybe
parents and children wanting to enjoy a
holiday fishing and able to get a good
bend in the rod, while maybe exploring
the surrounding area’s deep history and
beautiful countryside. The lake is now
available for bookings for a maximum of
two anglers on separate bookings, or
Lake Exclusive for up to two anglers.
Fishing is from one bank only, with the
rest of the lake completely tree lined, with
the odd gap were you can bait up, with
plenty of overhanging trees in place
making it ideal for carp to hide out
(perfect to try some stalking), but you will
need a bait boat for these areas, which

can be used on both lakes. Harry’s Lake
ranges from 2ft to 6ft in depth with a head
of 160 very hard-fighting carp, almost
pushing into the 30lb barrier.
Only having the lake for a few years,
Mark and Leanne have already built up a
great clientele of smitten anglers that have
already rebooked year after year, and if
this continues, Compton’s Lakes will
almost become a syndicate, and possibly
one of the hardest venues to get onto, so
don’t miss the chance to fish this
wonderful venue. The whole complex,
both lakes, can also be booked
exclusively for up to six anglers, so please
check the website at
www.comptonslakes.co.uk for up to date
prices and availability.
Compton’s Lakes also provide a
number of different options and services
to cater for all anglers’ needs, so if you
prefer to fly into the local airport with
pickup and return, while hiring some good
quality equipment, with bait available to
buy, that can all be done. Leanne and
Mark also offer a superb food package,
knocking up some top notch grub
including some lovely homemade
breakfasts, lunch, dinner and desserts, all
being delivered direct to your bivvy. Mark
will always check on how you want to
spend your week, i.e., left to your own
devices or daily visits for information and
advice if you are finding it a bit tough
going; it’s completely up to you.
For the drive and survive angler, the
nearest village is only five minutes down
the road including the likes of a small but
well stocked tackle shop and
supermarket. The bigger shops like the
Tackle Warehouse can be found in
Limoges 35 minutes away if needed.
Leanne often visits the local supermarket
and is more than happy to pick you up
something should you need it. Both fly
and drive anglers can enjoy a warm
shower, toilet and sink, to refresh
themselves during their stay. There is a
