Details of your catches:
Dad,mum & 2 sons 14 & 12. Biggest catch was 28lb common along with a 27lb mirror (about an hour before we left!!) 4 others between 18 - 24lb commons

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Boilies 20mm mandarin flavour seemed very popular as we baited the area by the raised rocks on the first full day with our biggest catch caught the following day and he was full of pink wee!! For the mum, sweet corn for a bit of float fishing was very rewarding!

Were the facilities what you expected?
Facilities were fab! All you would expect for a home away from home! We were made to feel very welcomed! Fresh eggs from the hens an added bonus! The whole place was extremely idyllic, I would have stayed longer!

Were you happy with them?
We were so happy! From a non fisher person I found it to be a wonderful place where you could totally relax (apart from when you're reeling in a pig!! :-)

Details of your catches:
Dad and son (10 years old)
69 x Carp
15 fish over 18lbs
Biggest 34.10
We didn’t fish every day, no night fishing and only fished between 9am and 6pm

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Fishing in the wet stuff... just like to do our own thing, not interest in what others do!

Were the facilities what you expected?
We wanted to massively thank Matt and his wife Carolyn for providing us with an amazing weeks fishing!

The accommodation exceeded all our expectations, everything was tiptop and very clean. The Evans took great steps to ensure everything you could want, or need, was thought of and provided, making the stay feel homely and very comfortable, perfect for bringing along the non-anglers too. I needed extra freezer bait space and without hesitation Matt offered us another freezer and quickly set it up in the kitchen without it being any bother or trouble, just happy to make us happy!

Were you happy with them?
The Gite was positioned right by the lake, literally only metres away! The setup was ideal as it allowed all family members to feel together and always connected, making popping back a forth between the Gite and the lake very easy and convenient. This was ideal for comfort breaks and food times with the family etc., whilst insuring the non-anglers could enjoy the garden, deck and sun loungers, but still seeing and hearing the fishermen etc.

The setting felt tranquil and quiet, it was lovely being so immersed in the idyllic countryside, certainly helped make us all feel very relaxed and hidden away in a little piece of heaven.

The lake took us by surprise, you feel very lucky and spoilt fishing this well established and cared for lake, a world away from our normal club waters! We especially loved the level of exclusivity, as you were left alone to enjoy the fishing without being bothered or watched.

As for the fishing…  I’ve been carp fishing for the best part of twenty-five+ years, in that time I’ve fished some very good and special waters both at home and abroad! I’ve been going to Angling lines waters for the past 18 years, and lucky enough to go to five different French venues this year with my son! However, I can honestly say the week at Kingfisher is going to go down as one of our family favourites.

Between my 10-year-old son and I, we caught 69 carp (that we recorded!). We didn’t fish every day, no night fishing and only fished between 9am and 6pm. The prolific week was topped off with us catching 15 fish over 18lbs. My biggest was a 28.4 and Jack was rightly proud to catch a stunning 34.10 which was very long and has the frame to go over forty! Smashed his dad lol…! He was especially happy as it was on his own tied rigs and zero help from me end to end all week! This was the plan and why we choose Kingfisher, so he was safe and able to be completely independent and fish his own session.

I wanted to especially thank Matt for making my son Jack and I feel especially welcome and trust us to do our own thing, not constrained by inexperienced fishery management rules etc. Thanks again and we can’t wait to be back in 2018.

Details of your catches:
Started fishing Sunday morning with a good run of 3 fish within an hour biggest being just over 19lb. Monday we were away for the day, when we got back I fished overnight and had 9 fish biggest being just over 18lb, packed up at 4am to get some sleep. Tuesday was a very hot day not much moving. Wednesday out for the day again until late. Thursday Bill pipped my 19lber with his fish on a float rod another very hot day. Friday was another very hot day Bill had caught more but overall I had about 36 fish, mainly in the teens. Unlucky not to have caught one of the bigger ones.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Tried several baits, my favourite is the Rahja spice from Quest but we also used a fish flavoured bait which worked well. Any light coloured baited did tend to get nibbled by the crays. Used mostly 20mm baits but snowman and popups worked as well all served to the fish over a bed of pellets and corn.

Were the facilities what you expected?
The facilities are really excellent, comfortable beds, great shower, large lounge to relax in for the TV with the dishwasher an added bonus (saves arguing who is washing up). Everything you needed with a lovely welcome pack from the owners with bread, cheese, fresh home grown 'eggs' and other goodies.
Were you happy with them?
I can see this being a great venue for families who take children wanting to fish with dad, lots of action and the chance of bigger carp. You can fish all around the lake with different depths of water and features to fish to. Although the owners live on site you still feel that you are on your own, plenty of space for children to run around down on the 'prairie' to the woods.
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Yes definitely, great place to relax under the trees at the end of the lake next to the gite with picnic table just outside and only a couple of strides from the lakeside. I fished this area most mornings and evenings with great results. Matt and Caroline are a lovely couple.

General comments:
I would like to thank Matt and Caroline for a most enjoyable week, if I had any questions or needed help they were there on hand. I would love to come back again and have a go at the bigger fish. Perhaps I moved around the lake too much to try all the different areas for the bigger fish to catch up. Lots to see and do around here, the peace and quiet under the stars at night is magical.

General comments:
Very nice venue and nice people, made to feel welcome from the first minute to the last. Fishing was great, caught my first grass carp. The gite is very well set out and right beside the lake. All the fish are very well kept and very hard fighting, especially the commons.

Great fishery for any angler from beginner to experienced. Looking forward to my next visit.

Had a great time at Kingfisher Lake, beat my PB twice. I also caught my first grass carp here and still have the grin on my face now. The facilities at this holiday venue are good and I was made to feel very welcome. I would recommend this venue to everyone.

General comments:
Excellent venue, very friendly people, accommodation is A1. Fishing is very good for beginners or experts, good variety of sized fish, good selection of common and mirror carp. If you fish near the gite you can have a BBQ and still fish.
