DREAM CATCHERS LAKE Le Pouillol, 87520 Veyrac, France
aul and I have been lucky enough to
have reviewed six French fisheries in
the Limoges region of France over
the past four years, and with this review
being planned for a while on what looked
a very impressive fishery, gauging from its
website and Facebook page, we were
already very excited to have got the
opportunity to fish this brand new venue
opening on the French carp fishing scene.
Dream Catchers Lake in Veyrac just outside
of Limoges was better than excellent, and
believe us when we say we were more
than blown away with what we found on
arrival at the fishery.
Newly acquired in September 2017 by
owners Richard and Gillian Floate, Dream
Catchers has never truly been fished as a
commercial fishery. The original owner
literally had it as an ornamental lake for
pleasant viewing from the windows of the
house, and it was only rarely fished by
family and close friends. When booking
Dream Catchers, you will get the full use of
its eight-acre lake, and within the price you
get the use of a stunning five-bedroomed
house as well, which is no more than
100yds from the lake. It is perfect for
families and groups of friends and anglers
to hire and spend time fishing and relaxing
while enjoying the surroundings with
plenty of fun things to do in and around
When planning our trip to Dream
Catchers Lake, we were looking into a few
different ways of reaching the fishery, and
ended up deciding on a lesser-travelled
route for us, the Newhaven ferry over to
Dieppe, then a short-ish drive to the lake.
This worked out much cheaper on fares for
the two of us, with petrol and tolls
cheaper and the ferry costing half the
price of the tunnel, so it seems a nobrainer. Although the crossing is longer at
just over four hours, it knocks hours off the
journey driving, as opposed to leaving
from Calais. The direct drive from Dieppe
to Limoges is now just five-and-a-half
hours and is the most cost effective option,
with the two of us paying only £150 each
for the return ferry and journey from Essex
to Dream Catchers. You can also fly into
Limoges airport and get a taxi to the
fishery if the drive is not for you.
