Angling Lines regular Barry Griffiths has only gone and landed the new lake record of 66lb!
This has beaten his PB by 4oz and his mirror PB by 5lb. Congratulations Bas, we're chuffed for you.
That Special Birthday Pressy!
Our first booking of the season, it was cold & wet, the pool was still under wraps. The Ward family were celebrating dad Paul's birthday as best as they could. However, not to be deterred, he carried on and awarded himself that special pressy....all 46.2lbs of it!
Happy Birthday Paul and congratulations on your new PB! Now that's worth celebrating!
They Have Arrived.....
At the end of last year, Dick decided to increase the fish stock, but as we were still finishing our barn conversion we thought it wiser to wait a couple of months, you know how the odd bill crops up and wham...anyway...Christmas passed, as it does, so we decided it was almost passed the time, but thought we would see what was available.
We spoke to a few suppliers, but decided to go with Vasseur pissiculture. Sebastien was really helpful and delivery was arranged. We organized help, put the camera on charge, and after a couple of phone calls, they came a day early!
It was raining cats & dogs, nearly dark, only one helper in the end, we didn't take any photos (the camera is still on charge) But it went like clockwork, the boys were great, the fish are fantastic, in great condition, we were all as wet as the fish in the end. Over 300kgs of new mirrors & commons are now in residence, so no excuses for not catching anything now boys!
Spending a week at Golden Oak
Steve Bedford has written a really great informative post on his trip to Golden Oak from start to finish. A perfect read, particularly if it's your first trip carp fishing in France...
Well it’s been a while since my last blog and I haven’t managed to get out on the bank as much as I’d like due to family issues but it’s finally that time of year, the fishing holiday! It has been a couple of years since my friends and I last went to France for a fishing holiday so to say we were looking forward to it is an understatement.
The previous 2 occasions we went to France we went to Mas Bas, this year however due to us booking at last minute we were not able to get Mas Bas. Not to worry, this gave us the opportunity to visit another venue that we have had our eyes on for a while which is Golden Oak!
The following blog will take you through the process of booking, preparing , travelling to the venue, our first impressions, our approach on fishing the venue, tips & tutorials, catch reports and finally the return journey and a summary, basically everything (If things go well) that you need to know about going to France with Angling Lines...
