France has a long and continuing history of fishing for pleasure and one can hardly walk the banks of a river or canal without seeing many anglers fishing with poles or rod and line.

In recent years it has also become a great draw to overseas anglers, in particular the British. Not only does the slightly warmer climate mean that some species, like carp, grow larger than in the UK, but the lower population densities mean a great many lakes are hardly fished at all. This has led to a growing holiday fishing industry with everything on offer from a bivouac on the side of an untouched water to luxury lets beside stocked and monitored lakes.

Many of the most popular venues are within a short drive of ferry ports or the Channel Tunnel.
