A New PB

Congratulations to Sean Rackley who banked a new PB this week with a 36lb 2oz Mirror, plus he caught the Grass Carp at 11lb 4oz, for the first time since it went in the lake. It's gained 1.5lb in 18 months and fought hard enough for Sean to name it Marlin after it tail-walked twice.

Jason Rackley caught the same fish a couple of days later and it fought just as hard. Despite the very hot weather in the latter half of the week (29/30 degrees) the guys did well, avoiding the heat of the day and fishing the cooler hours and through the nights.

Robert fished 10 metres from the gîte and banked double figured fish too, but didn't fish though the night - opting for a proper comfy bed!

Well done guys, it was a pleasure having you.

Last Week's Catch

Last weeks visitors had not only the good weather (if not a little too hot at the end) but they also bagged some nice fish :-)

Well done guys!

Some of our September 2016 reviews

 

Peaceful retreat, truly a 'get away from it all' hamlet in a rural, yet pretty French area...market towns nearby, so not completely isolated...this is a beautiful place...been several times, the family are friendly, helpful and good humoured...highly recommend!

Such a beautiful location in a very warm part of France, although it's not too far south. The lake is gorgeous and stocked with all kinds of fish. The English owners, Matt and Carolyn always make us feel very welcome, highly recommended for a relaxing holiday, especially if you enjoy fishing.

I recently spent a wonderful few days enjoying the facilities at Kingfisher Lake. Located in a beautifully rural part of the country, it's a comfortable drive from the UK crossing the channel by ferry to Cherbourg.

A modest number of swims have been created to allow a variety of approaches to be taken in pursuit of that special fish, with the lake being only open to the residents of the gite and the owner, who is on hand to advise / support and help get the most out of the property.

Despite the hot weather we caught a variable but healthy number of fish each day, again with some nice more challenging fish landed, varying in number and size depending on approach, bait and numbers of rods out..

The Gite is very comfortable, and extremely well renovated from original stone outbuildings. It offers a very spacious lounge / diner / kitchen with everything you could need for a stay of any length.. With two bedrooms and a good size Shower room, everything came together perfectly for a relaxing stay.

There are many great facilities nearby in the local villages and closest town, which also boasts a very well stocked tackle shop, with latest brands and baits etc..

I will be returning for sure and will bring / recommend to my other fishing friends. The owners and locals are very friendly and helpful, and make everything just right for either a relaxing family break, or a more focused fishing experience..

Would very much recommend it to anyone looking to spend time in a relaxing environment, away from the highly commercialised lakes found in the UK

A Short Session

It was a fantastic day today weather wise, so myself and a buddy spent 6 hours fishing before a big Sunday roast.

The results weren't too bad with three 20lb+ fish and one at 19lb 11oz. Not a bad way to spend a day :-)

New Arrivals

New arrivals on the last possible day!!

The last two fish arrived this morning, in great condition other than a couple of superficial marks picked up in transit (all of which have been treated).

40lb 5oz and 35lb 15oz. Or if you prefer metric 18.3kg and 16.3kg respectively.

They will loose a little due to the 230km journey and move to a new environment, I hope they settle in well and I am looking forward to catching them.

New Stock Has Arrived

Finally took delivery of the some of the new stock for the lake.

Ten new fish 20 -22lb
Ten new fish between 25 - 26lb
Three others at 31.4, 32.10 and 35.1lb

Roughly, two thirds are mirrors & one third commons.

Here's a few pictures, but after the 3 hour journey and the temperature at 4 degrees and dropping it was imperative to get the fish into the water.
