All fishery businesses in France MUST be registered in France, otherwise they are illegal under French law.

All legal fisheries have to list a SIRET number on their website and on any paperwork as proof that they are registered with the French tax authorities. It doesn't matter if the lake owner lives in the UK, or the lake is leased, any income derived from French property MUST be declared in France.

If you have booked a French fishing holiday this year ask the owner for their SIRET number. If they don't have one they are a 'black' fishery which can be raided at any time by the French tax police and shut down. If the owner has a SIRET number you can check it is valid and for a fishing business by typing in the first nine letters on verif.com

If you have booked a black fishery you run the risk of losing your holiday, being thrown off the venue and possibly having your tackle and vehicle confiscated by the police. Personally, if I found I had booked an illegal fishery I would demand my money back and go elsewhere. There really is no excuse for any fishery owner in France, they all know it they must be registered in France and they must be paying taxes in France.

Below is a list of registered English-owned fisheries in France that have a SIRET number, you can book any of these with confidence.

All owners of the above venues can feel free to start their own thread about their fishery here including news, views, pics, blogs etc. They are also free to post a link to their website or Facebook page etc... thumbsup

We need to support the legal fisheries.... wave

Interesting that Carp Forum have deleted any references to UK-owned French fisheries needing to be registered with the French tax authorities or they are deemed illegal and anyone fishing an unregistered fishery is committing a criminal offence.... bash

This is presumably because they are getting a few quid in advertising from the said illegal fisheries.... thumbsup

Where does this leave self-confessed Francophile and Carp Forum Admin Ken Townley? woot

I am hoping to bump into Mr Townley 1 day as he apparently lives in the South West near where I have moved to. Got some very interesting questions for him as regard the censorship of 1 particular venue on that forum for many years and even continuing after the venue has changed hands. I would also be interested to know what steps the forum administration take to ensure that all foreign venues referred to on the forum are properly registered in France. Of course I know a lot of venues that are either not registered in France, not registered in France or the UK, or are registered in France but are not properly accounting for tax. Now in retirement my days of getting involved on the carp forums are over (almost)!!

Paul an after thought from my previous posting, if a forum allows the promotion of an illegally operated/tax unregistered venue are they potentially leaving themselves open to legal action if anglers lose their deposits etc??

"are they potentially leaving themselves open to legal action if anglers lose their deposits etc??"

Potentially yes.... the medium that carries the advertising is also liable... I doubt however that the forums have anyone of substance behind them, however, if they do...... lol

Dave, no SIRET number on the new Moulinots website.....presumably the new business owners are aware of your recent history? Eyecrazy
