Many thanks

Dadid,

I have fished this place sometimes and you have a lot of fishing possibilities from estuary to rocky places with a lot of walk.

I advise to have a look on http://www.geoportail.fr/index.php?event=DisplayCartoVisu&url_insert=454c8017cd9addec9f7d2e88aa8ee6ae

to get satelitte view and see the spots. The Rance estuary is good for fly fishing but you can fish almost everywhere !!!

I recommend you to got to the area beetween Cap d'Erquy and Cap Fréhel, really nit place with nice bass.

If you go in summer, fishing is pretty hard, bass aren't bitting a lot because of the number of boats but if you fish at sunrise or sunset and even during the night you can expect good results. Best season is october.

I don't know why but on the St Malo area my buddies do not catch big bass on the fly (2 pound max) but with spinning rod and soft plastics they landed really nice fish.

When will you be there since I might be in the area this year too.
