Holiday date:
Sat 14th May to Sat 21st May 2016
Name of customer:
Paul Smith
Number of anglers:
4
Details of your catches:
27 fish including a 57 common, 2 different 56 lb mirrors and 7 40's to 48lbs.

The average size of fish was higher than we expected and were in excellent condition.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Fish were caught from 30 yards out to right out to the far bank.

Were the facilities what you expected?
The farmhouse is a short drive but this didn't present any problems and the facilities were basic but clean and adequate.
Were you happy with them?
Yes
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Yes, a stunning peaceful lake with a lot of big carp present.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes

General comments:
The fishing seemed very weather dependent. Still hot days produced little but a bit of rain and wind seemed to activate them immediately.

The track from the car park is boggy and a bit of a pain, something that could be easily fixed. Also, we ordered bait and had a confirmation email from Chris but he was away so we didn't receive it. Luckily we had enough bait with us to get through the week. The previous party had taken the life jackets home with them so there were none available for us. Not only could this have impacted on our fishing holiday but also presents serious safety concerns. I was not impressed.

**Angling Lines note** Sorry to hear about these issues, we will look into this with the owner.

30 fish in total
1 x 50 (52 8)
5 x 40's

8 x 20's
1 double


Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
We caught well on both tiger nuts and boilies.
A lot of the fish were held up in the weed near the far margin off the wooded bank and drifted out to feed. Its our 5th trip to Boux and patrol routes seem well established, we cant understand why 'car park corner' doesn't produce more fish!

Were the facilities what you expected?
Absolutely. No rubbish, clean house and with the heat the freezer was priceless!!
Were you happy with them?
Yes, totally
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Yes and have done several times
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes. The team were very helpful whilst we worried about possible delays due to the problems in Calais & with questions to the owner.

General comments:
The week was unbelievably hot and clearly had an effect on the fish where it was hard to establish any feeding patterns.

Also the pike can be a pain where they attack anything that moves - several fish were trailing line which we put down to the pike hitting back leads leaving tackle out in the water, best advise is not to use them!

Despite a tough week, Boux is a beautiful place to escape to and is home to some truly wonderful carp.

Name of customer:
Neal Thompson
Number of anglers:
5
Details of your catches:
Only 4 anglers travelled and we had a trip to be remembered!. We had 59 fish, 14x20's, 26x30's, 14x40's & 4x50's

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
We used Virus bait from Florestackle.com with boilie and tiger nut hook baits. We fished at long range to the far margin and baited heavily throughout the trip. We experienced heavy rain for 2 days. It rained for 13hrs solid and the lake rose by 4"!!!

Were the facilities what you expected?
The facilities were exactly what we expected, basic but sufficient.
Were you happy with them?
Yes
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Have done many times
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes, have and always will

General comments:
The only moan we could have is the path to the lake from the car park is boggy at best and after the torrential rain it was a waders job!. It used to be in passable when I came before so I suppose it's an improvement!. No real drama as long as anglers take welly boots!
