Fishing is a popular pastime here in france.  Licences can be purchased for the odd day, weeks or for the year where you can fish on the river or lakes.  John is a very keen angler who spends many hours on the River Vienne - he is available to take you on a fishing trip and guide you in the right direction - tackle hire also available (if required).
