    We have just come back from a three week trip of french Aires in Depts ...45..18..03..42..71..21..52....and I thought I would put some photos of some of French Aires we have just visited..........They may be interesting to others...:thumb: and it has been hot hot in the 30c to 38c most of the time in fact nealy all the time ...one afternoon we had rain...this is in APRIL 2010 !!!!!

    I will keep adding photos when I have time..so if interested keep looking...there may be a odd fish chucked in....and to all you fishermen ITS A FISH it may be small, it may not be a carp, it may be a catfish it may not, and yes I caught many as they just kept hanging themselves on my hook, but I have not been fresh water fishing for 45 years "its a puppet" no sorry a fish.
    All the Aires are on Lakes, Rivers or the Canals.

    The photos are great!

    We are planning a three week french trip in June and would love to do a bit of fishing. Do we need a license or can we just dangle a line?

    I have just purchased one for the first time 86 euros.for the year season..but I am hoping to get some use out of it, as it is a lot of money for just a few hours here and there......but you can buy one for I think two week or a month one for people having holidays...mine covers for all france from just below Paris downwards south, and east and west for 4 rods and above Paris for just one rod.....on rivers and canals.....but you can get day tickets as a lot of them are private....if you look at the Barlieu Aire they do a day ticket 4 euros......your aire costs you 3.5 euros the first night 2 euros the second night and for the third night and onwards just 1.50 euros ...electric is 2 euros for 24 hours and the water is free...I hope that is of some help to you.
