English style rod - Quiver - Italian style fishing.
The Lac de Naussac has been recently sounded. This process has shown that the lake is well provided with coarse fish, roaches (around 80%).
As a former competitor in coarse fishing I can assure you that even without maggots, it's an easy job to fish keepnets full of roadies, carps, tench and even breams in this superb and easy reaching lake.
