Read Iain MacMillans review of his last trip to Moorlands

I have just returned from my first fishing trip to France, the venue being Moorlands run by the larger than life Keith Moors.

        For many years I've wanted to go to France fishing but unfortunately family commitments and the restraints imposed by work have prevented this.

        My fishing in England has been varied but over the last twenty years mainly restricted to non-publicity syndicates and small clubs. I've been lucky enough to catch many big English fish up to my personal best of 46lbs 10ozs. Any French trip would have a lot to live up to compete with my experiences in England.

        Many of my friends have fished in France and have reported good and bad experiences. By my very nature I'm a sceptical and rather critical individual and I tend to find fault with things quite readily. When my good friend and long term fishing accomplice 'Cowley' invited me on trip to Moorlands I was interested but had some reservations about general fishing in France. With many years fishing in France Cowley assured me I would be happy at Moorlands.

        So the trip was booked for a party of eight and before I knew it the time had arrived. We actually travelled out on the Thursday beforehand so we could dine with the Moors' that night and sample proper french cuisine.

        Armed with my English kit and 25kg of Kevin Nash's finest I arrived at Moorlands to be greeted by one of the most picturesque pieces of countryside you could imagine. The water was down by two to three feet at the time but this didn't detract from the beauty of the place with its tree lined banks and woodlands.

       We were welcomed by Keith's beaming smile and a bit of news about how it had been fishing that week. I immediately felt at home and hoped the fishing would match my first impressions.

       The rest of Thursday and Friday passed quickly and before we knew it we had drawn swims and were heading off around the lake. I came out of the draw fourth but managed to get my desired spot the 'Boneyard' which afforded a fair bit of water and numerous options.

       Keith didn't draw letting his customers have first shout, however he did get one of his preferred options and ended up in a swim next to where I was.
