About us


Well I started fishing at the age of 10 when my grandad would drop us off at the local day water to see how many we could catch, as I got older I was cycling all over fishing for carp and tench and soon had the carp fishing bug, we would sit under an umbrella all night with fairy liquid tops as bobbins ” you remember those days peeps”, .

I have fished all over the country and been lucky enough to of been on some top class syndicate waters in search of some lumps, however the craving to fish in France was eating away at me so with the first opportunity off I went, I was hooked! So some 20 years later and many lumps under my belt I still love it as much as I did from my very first visit.
The dream of having a French fishery was always a goal for me, I viewed many waters over France and then “wow! Chef de ville greeted me… Beautiful, stunning unspoilt piece of real carp fishing… So I got involved, my passion to make this a water for the guests to enjoy, love and return to time and time again is paramount, the water is truly amazing and will not disappoint the real carp anglers out there.

Guys don’t take my word for it.. Check out our feedback on Facebook and the website, cast your eyes over the fish that have graced the banks, look at the work we have done and I’m sure you will agree we are absolutely focused on really putting Chef back in the top 10 fishing musts in France..And only 3 hours from Calais.

This water is going to be very very special, tranquil, stunning fish and with top notch facilities a holiday that you won’t want to end 🙂

I look forward to seeing you guys on the bank and sharing some special moments with you all.
