Rainbow Lake Carping - Extreme Style!

Recommended Posts

If you have a but of time spare then I can thoroughly recommend these video's of a recent trip to Rainbow Lake in France by the legend that is Kevin Ellis.

They're over 2 hours long in total but they will give you an idea of just how extreme (and different) the fishing is over there compared to here in Canada.

Some of the methods are ingenious (mainly created by the german's) and you have to admire how they have come up with these different tactics to catch the fish from the lake.

I thought it's a great watch that really gives you a bit of insight into the lake.

Absolutely right Jamie, I really am proud of the vast waters we have here to fish for Carp, but Carp fishing in Europe is something totally different. Thanks for those videos, they're awesome.

Here's two links from a Hungarian site of the SBS baits team fishing Rainbow lake. The lake is riddled with snags and the anglers have come up with ingenious ways to tackle these problems. Check it out, just scroll to the bottom of the page & click on the videos. Sorry its in Hungarian, but the video says it all.

Rainbow Part 1 - Very entertaining - thanks for posting the links.

May want to recommend next time they wear shorts, rather than briefs, for their in water excursions - almost too much "tackle" showing or coming out. Did they need to use the boat to get every fish in ? (must be one hell of a snag fest down here!)

I particularly enjoyed some the 80's music they used - for those who don't remember or perhaps were not even born before then, or are just an 80's music fan, here's the list of the tracks I recalled,

"Talking Heads - Road to Nowhere"

"Visage - Fade to Grey"

"Billy Idol - Dancing with Myself"

Rainbow - Part 2, still to see...

interesting how much effort and skills they are putting to catch rainbow fish but they all have to use 12-13’ rods from the boat

Its so weird to me that they don’t use shorter rods since it seem that all they do is hand line from snag to snag you just can’t put any pressure with 12’ rod from such a small boat

ps: is that the same peg as Kevin Ellis fished, that’s the first rainbow video I saw, he is funny
