Number of anglers:

Details of your catches:
Arrived at Alder with not a cloud in the sky and temperatures approaching 30 degrees which was ideal for us to relax but the down side was the fishing was a bit slow. But we did manage to land 19 Carp in total, unfortunately Damian blanked but not through lack of trying. Steve was top with 11 mirrors largest 40lb 7 oz, Jamie 6 mirrors largest 35lb and Dan with 2 mirrors inc the largest mirror 41lb his new P.B.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Tactics varied but most fish came from the margins either side of the point. The largest fish came from deeper water at the dam end. Nearly all fish were caught on simple snow man rigs. Ground bait of maize, pellet and boilies was introduced little and often.

Name of customer:
Anthony Atkins
Number of anglers:
4
Details of your catches:
29 fish in total broken down into personal catch numbers of:
Sean 10 to 39.13lb
Andy 7 to 36lb
John 6 to 36lb
Aki 6 to 38.05lb

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Regular baiting with boilies and some particle (maize, corn and hemp)
Mostly bottom baits and they either critically balanced, snowman or bottom baits.
Rigs of various types worked with nothing better than the other

Were the facilities what you expected?
Not quite but adequate, there are a few jobs around the venue that do need completing and all starting to look a little bit "tired/dated"
Were you happy with them?
The lake was perfect and surrounding area stunning with peace and tranquility, wild life and views very relaxing.
The other facilities where more basic than expected and as mentioned earlier slightly tired and in need of attention.
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
I would recommend as the fish and venue are stunning but would state it is a "Drive and Survive" venue as facilities are basic. I would also question the labelling of being a "runs water" Having fished many a "runs water" in my time, this felt more of a middle of the road large fish venue and we all had to work hard for our captures. All that said, we all enjoyed and predominant size of fish was over mid-thirty.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
With out doubt I would recommend Angling Lines services. Always very helpful, at the end of a phone and nothing was to much trouble.. Will be using again in the near future.

General comments:
There could be improvements such as lighting/electricity and running water provided at minimal costing with the use of modern solar panelling/battery power storage and running water pipes along hedgerow to hut. This would be all and would make such a difference to the experience.

*Owner's note* We have considered power and water connection on many occasions but a legal connection to the mains water would have to meet building codes and would trigger the requirement for a waste disposal system. This is far from minimal costing. We installed individual solar powered lights over the years but sadly wear and tear is higher than the manufacturers envisaged. We currently have 160 Watts of solar panels in place and are planning to dedicate this to lighting the cabin.

Definition of what constitutes a runs water is open to debate but Alder continues to record great catches and many new PB's for anglers including all of your group :-)
