General comments:
Had a really good week considering bad fishing conditions, Franck the bailiff was spot on as usual. I read in an earlier feedback comment someone struggled with understanding his english can I just say his english is much better than my French and I found no problems in communication, he will bend over backwards to help in anyway he can. This goes for Mark Slade also you couldn't ask for better bailiffs, I would recommend this venue to anyone

For the peace and quiet of the lake yes. For the facilities and bailiff no. Was a poor overall experience for first time being abroad to fish.

Unfortunately no.

General comments:
Found the bailiff didn't take much care of the anglers. Frank don't talk English really. Facilities were really really poor. The lake itself is beautiful. Lake was really shallow and so weedy was hard to even fish.

*Owner's note* We were not aware of the charging facilities not working at any time and have received no complaints regarding this prior to this feedback, the only days these services are not available is Sunday and Monday but we do state this clearly on the rules. Bailiff Franck is at the lake Tuesday through to Friday but both Mark and Franck are always available via mobile, we supply these numbers on the info pack and urge anglers to give us a call with any problems so we can do our best to rectify them.

Holiday date:
Sat 22nd Jul to Sat 29th Jul 2017
Name of customer:
Andrew Gilbert
Number of anglers:
2
Details of your catches:
20 fish between Stewart and myself
Commons: 33..6, 35.4, 40.2, 26, 33.4, 24.4, 27.8, 28.4, 31.4, 32.12, 28.12
Mirrors: 18, 25.8, 22.8, 31, 27.8, 28.8, 28.4, 24.4
Grass: 44.12

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Double wafting tiger nuts did 90% of the bites, three fish came to a snowman.
Small amounts of tigers and boilie on a spot, productive spots got topped up a couple of times a day with another small amount of boilie and tigers. The weed growth was a little heavy in places on the lake but fishing on the fringes of it produced the bites. A thick band of weed 30 yards from the swim proved a little problematic and we dropped 11 fish between us.

Were the facilities what you expected?
Fourth time on large so no surprises, our portable generator kept things charged and the shower was clean and hot throughout the week
Were you happy with them?
Yep no problems whatsoever
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
I certainly would, a challenging venue at times, but one of my favourites. There's no hustle and bustle at brocard, its big, peaceful and excellently run.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes I would, and I do so.

General comments:
Turned up at the lake to find only us and two french guys fishing (who left wednesday morning), which really surprised me. If people are put off by the weed in the hotter months, its really nothing to worry about. Okay you are going to lose a few with barbless hooks, but we still managed plenty of fish and more than our previous visits in April and September. Missed Franck who was on holiday our week but was well looked after by Mark and Steve. All the guys and girls on Brocard Small were great and we look forwards to coming back.

Holiday date:
Sat 6th May to Sat 13th May 2017
Name of customer:
Daniel Eldridge
Number of anglers:
7
Details of your catches:
We fished over pegs 6, 7, 8 and 11. Peg 11 was the least productive producing just the one mirror at 25lb 4oz. Peg 7 produced 4 carp to 39lb. Peg 6 produced 6 to 36lb. The peg of the week went to peg 8 producing 9 carp from 22lb upto the biggest of 51lb 7oz (fished by one angler).

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
It seemed the best tactics for the week were simple bottom bait rigs fished in open water with a couple of handfuls of free boilies and some hemp and tiger's around each hookbait. Mainline cell and sticky manilla seemed to be the most productive baits across the week.

Were the facilities what you expected?
This is very much a drive and survive venue. The facilities are very clean and tidy. However we wasnt made aware of the electrics only being available Tuesday to Friday.

*Angling Lines note* Apologies, we did state on the website that the electricity is only supplied at set times but did not specify days, we have now done so.
Were you happy with them?
Whilst you can get by with the facilities available to you. I personally would advise taking your own power facilities be it long lasting power banks or even a small generator to ensure you can keep bait boats/phones etc charged. And be prepared to walk the mile or so it is from these swims to the cabin were the facilities are. But overall these facilities are adequate enough when you take in the whole experience of the lake and its fishing.
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
I would definitely recommend this venue to a friend because the overall experience was great and the fish in this lake are outstanding.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
I would without a doubt recommend angling lines to everyone. We had some last minute problems with the original lake we was going to and angling lines were absolutely superb from start to finish in ensuring that we was kept up to date and once a decision to change was made, angling lines made the transition as stress free as it could possibly be. Linda, Heather and Bridget were all superb at all points of contact and never left me in the dark. Was a pleasure to book through angling lines and will be using your services again.

General comments:
Overall, as a group we had a fantastic week even though some didnt catch as many as others. Although in truth this was probably more down to conditions than angling ability.

The fish in this lake are immaculate. My only advice when booking this venue would be;

1. A club hammer or electric drill as pegging a bivvy on the swims is extremely difficult.
2. Take your own power as it can be frustrating not being able to keep things charged.
3. Peg 8 is most certainly not a double swim so bare this in mind when booking.
4. Take a camping loo with you as its a long way from the facilities especially in the night.

Thanks again to angling lines for everything you done to ensure our trip went ahead and thank you for your first class service and ease of booking with you from start to finish.
