Etang Des Royales - The DVD
Presented by Chris Ponsford and featuring John & Ben Hofgartner and Friends Team up the formidable talents of John and Ben Hofgartner, both master Carp anglers, at a stunning lake in the Champagne region of France, get them to run it 24/7, add huge carp and catfish, throw in quality home cooked fresh food, and great facilities, and you end up with one of the continents premier venues for the angler who appreciates quality and a friendly tranquillity. Anglers return year on year, confident everything will be just as they left it, except the fish will be bigger, and standards won't have dropped, guaranteeing peace and quiet, and the chance of huge hard fighting hungry fish. Throw in Chris Ponsford to present it, Tom Smith to film and direct it, some gorgeous Carp to star, plus happy anglers, plenty of tips of how to catch them, filmed and explained in detail, and you have a great DVD, giving any new angler to France the inside track for a great holiday, so that nothing is left to chance, and your time is as busy as you want it to be.
The English connection is Ruth Lockwood at Yateley Angling Centre to deal with your bookings, and Ace baits who supply the bait on site at a very reasonable cost, and boy do they work well. All you need to know for that perfect break is covered on this classy DVD from the Original Video Limited, who had great fun making it, in the idyllic surroundings. Watch, enjoy, and follow in our footsteps, a venue and hosts for proper carpers who are serious about their fishing.
