General comments:
Well where do we start.. on arrival we were greeted by the very friendly dick and Joe. Joe showed us all around the accommodation and we were amazed by it! Couldnt believe we were going to be fishing with such luxury, the two ladies were very happy with the gite.

Then down to the bit i was very excited for, the walk around the lake with dick. Dick couldnt of been more informative during the walk and by the end we were very excited to get the rods out!! We followed dicks advice on bait and postioning and wow... he couldnt of been more right. within an hour we had our first fish on the bank and it already smashed my pb being 34lb 2oz. I ended up with 11 fish in total with the biggest being 38lb 6oz. My mate Jordan ended up with 8 fish and on the last day had the lucky 40lber which dick was convinced we would catch and yet again he was right!

We fished to his spots exactly and all fish were caught on either ghurkka spice topped with fake corn or special crab topped with fake corn on simple blowback rigs. We took our baitboat and found it really was a big advantage so if your thinking of going its really worth investing in one as the best spots would be very difficult casts. Bottom line to the fishing is just do what dick says and youll catch simple as that!

The weather was 30 degrees plus and the fish were still feeding for fun! This weather was obviously a big plus for the ladies sunbathing and getting in the pool too ofcourse!

Cant go without mentioning the quality of joes food package!!! All the food was beautifully home made and youll never go hungry thats for sure! We had one fussy lady with us and even joe accomodated for her. The meals were simply amaizing.

Anyone thinking of going i highly reccomend it! We all enjoyed the holiday so much we have already rebooked for next year and cant wait to go again!

see you next year dick and joe and thanks again!

2 Anglers only fishing day time. 19 fish caught including the boss at 62 LB caught twice (once each) thank you PB for us both, 1 forty 6 thirties, all the fish in great condition.

The hardest fighting carp I have ever caught alarms went mad every bite and then pulled you over the lake until you arms hurt, perfect !

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Tough start to the week but got better as the week progressed, best tip do what ever Dick tells you he knows the lake

Were the facilities what you expected?
The best facilities that we have ever had, well equipped accommodation, spotlessly clean more than comfortable. Lake in top condition, no snags, very tidy and you can tell how much work is done to keep the lake in A1 condition
Were you happy with them?
Very happy, you could not ask for better. This Venue to a credit to Joe & Dick great people who made us very welcome and they would do anything to make your holiday great. This should be the standard that all lake should try and achieve Great Holdiay

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Boilies- Cell/ Ghurkka Spice .Fished to spots on Dicks advice. All baits tipped with yellow/ white. Used sites pellets& special mix, and the fish clearly love the stuff. All rods fished to far margin & just off. Fished mainly in the dam end (base camp) & one day in the shallows which produced one of the 30s. Could possibly caught more if I had moved about more, but more than happy with the end result, so no complaints.

General comments:
Andy: The lake is stunning & the fish are in mint condition, Dick is happy to show spots that produce & did a lake tour on arrival. At no time did Dick intrude or interfere & has the perfect balance on that side of things. Follow the rules, respect the surroundings, care for the fish caught and you will certainly get on with Dick & Joe.

The gite of which I spent little time in is perfect for a family holiday with fishing thrown in, or as a base just for fishermen & the best I have seen by far. Would highly recommend for the fishing.

Iris; Not being a fisher-woman, I had reservations of spending a week on a fishing lake. How wrong could I be as the location, accommodation & complex is amazing. The hosts Joe & Dick are fantastic, & cannot do enough for you. Had a total chill out week and even enjoyed landing & photographing some amazing/stunning fish. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts & they even pointed us to a shopping complex (yippee!) for a nice day out. The food package was plentiful & varied and very, very nice quality. Not a good week weather wise, but did not spoil it, & if you had sunny days, it would have been perfect for sunning/ swimming in the pool.

Great week, & would highly recommend this venue for couples/familys, & will definitely return if looking to book this sort of holiday again.

5* all round!
