  • Thanks Dave for a great stay at Cassien Carp tours . Your advice guidance and facilities certainly helped both my trips ! Tickets , launch points , local knowledge would have all taken up valuable time if you hadn’t advised. Your tips on how to tackle the rocks and snags were great especially the float rig . I’ll certainly be back , maybe fly in as your tackle , boats and engines are second to none . Cheers mate . Mick

  • We’ve just returned from another trip to Cassien with my old mate Lee Lee Purse where the very hospitable David Hyam (the new owner of Cassien carp tours) was our host. Having been on many previous trips this one was made far easier by Dave gearing his whole operation around making it as simple as possible to fish the Great Lake.
    We had easy access to charging points, bait storage in a way of a big chest freezer, particle preparation facilities, excellent accommodation and great food all in a very relaxed and chilled manner.
    Dave, as well as being an all round top bloke, has got things seriously sorted down there! See you next year, several times.

  • Want to say a big thank you to David Hyam for an awesome trip to cassien. Dave really has mastered the art of fishing days only on cassien and the service he provides goes above and beyond what i expected. The accommodation and equipment provided is all first class and yet it seems that dave is still looking for ways to improve an already outstanding service. If you’re looking to experience the beauty of fishing one of the most iconic lakes in the world then look no further than cassien carp tours. Thanks again dave, will be back soon

  • Hi Dave,


    Hope you’re not working too hard…!!! Lucky bugger

    Just wanted to say a big thanks to Dave from Cassien Carp Tours for making our first experience of Cassien a special one.

    Spence still buzzing from his first run & landed Cassien Common Carp at 52.4 !!

    Top notch service from organising fishing permits, food, to all the tackle, boats, outboards, echo sounder etc. All the gear was the best an angler could want! Collection and delivery service to and from the lake in the green beast Land Rover Defender got us to fish spots others couldn’t and your timing always spot on time, never a minute late! Accommodation although fairly basic was very clean and tidy and a perfect base to catch up after the day’s angling over a few beers and some nice food.

    To be honest nothing was a problem for Dave, very helpful and laid back in every way. It’s only been 2 days since coming home and we are already planning our return visit!

    The very fussy Essex Car Dealer boys can 100% recommend Cassien Carp Tours. Gary & Spencer would just like to say many thanks again to Dave & Cassien Carp Tours, Can’t wait to return…Very happy days…

    Speak soon mate

    Just a little heads up for any Cassien anglers current or future…I was kindly asked by David Hyam who runs a brilliant guiding/anglers accommodation business to stay at his place whilst I was down last week. Dave’s set up is absolutely spot on as you can see…clean, totally well equipped and you genuinely won’t meet a nicer more down to earth guy. The night fishing ban means either running the gauntlet of the Garde and Gendarmerie (really NOT recommended!) Or staying in a Gite or campsite. Dave’s place is the perfect solution so of you are planning a visit, contact him via his page on here or look at his website, Cassien Carp Tours for all the relevant info. Flying in to Nice and renting gear from Dave is a great option, and ALL his kit (boats,batteries,rods etc) is of the highest standard so there’s no worries there. Sorry for the blatant plug but credit where credit is due….thanks again Mucka,see you in a few weeks 😊
