My second visit to Molyneux this year and as expected, not as may fish in October as May, but none the less well pleased with the 5 I managed during another excellent trip.

The whole week was fantastic, really enjoyed seeing Wally and Helen again, hospitality and catering brilliant as usual and cant wait to get back there again as soon as I can. Thanks to both of you for another super week.

The food package was excellent although struggled with the portion size (too much), Wally and Helen were excellent hosts.

General comments:
Molyneux is an exceptional fishery with some stunning fish.

However Molyneux would not be the place it is without Wally & Helen. They are two of the nicest people you could wish to meet. Wally is never short of advice and Helens food is excellent. Thanks for a great week!!!

General comments:
Has the potential to be so much more if the nuisance species hadn't effected the fishing so much. Additionally the fish held up most of the week under big raft of weed, I was lucky as I could cast very close to it but 4 other lads only had one fish each all week, raked out and it would have sorted the problem.

**Owner's comment** I am sorry that Mr Thompsons week was spoilt by the smaller catfish during his trip. These were removed from the lake. Normally they are not an issue as we have thinned out so many over the years that they are virtually non existent. The week previous to, and the week of his visit the catfish were very active. Due in no small part to the hot weather we were enjoying and the fact that they will be closing down for the winter very soon… Since his visit I think I have seen one or maybe two small cats being caught.

We do have some weed at present, it affects the fishing in one swim, Jacks, which covers the shallow area. Sadly Mr Thompsons suggestion of just raking it out is out of the question due to the type of weed. It multiplies and grows even thicker once raked out. Something we know only too well from experience. I am sorry that Mr Thompson so obviously didn’t enjoy his trip, and just wish he had mentioned some of these issues whilst he was here. Neither the weed or the catfish have caused problems to any other visitor.

Name of customer:
Mark Casey
Number of anglers:
1
Details of your catches:
Very few caught in our week, certainly nothing big, a couple of anglers were plagued by tiny catfish.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Nothing really, carp to pre occupied on naturals.

Were the facilities what you expected?
Not really, adequate but certainly nothing special.
Were you happy with them?
Neither happy or unhappy
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Definitely not
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Unsure

General comments:
Very poor choice, extremely weedy lake, largest carp in the lake is at least 6lb behind its stated size, certainly not as big as 13 acres, all in all very disappointed, food package was massively over priced and overated, 130 euro for cheap burger and chips, nuggets and chips, etc.

*Owner's Note* I am very disappointed to read that we failed to impress Mr Casey.

The lake is stated as 13 acres purely and simply as that is the size of the lake….. I have the deeds of the land which I am happy to show to any angler doubting the size of the place, and it is simple enough to check the size on google earth or using any free map apps which are available.

Mr Casey also mentions that the stated size of fish is 6lb over the largest fish in the lake. Anyone who would like to check our lake news for 28th May this year will see that a 47lb 3oz common was caught by an angler called Lucas Wood, who I am sure would confirm. As would Kevin, who fished the same week as Mr Casey and caught the same fish at 44lb 5oz due to being spawned out. So again totally incorrect and very disappointing.

Regards the food package, I disagree it is overpriced, €150 is the cost for breakfast and evening meal for seven days and is in line or cheaper than most competitors. Mr Casey was charged €130 for his meals as he left on Friday. Quality wise, again I am afraid it is not true. The cheap burgers he talks about are 100% beef good quality burgers. The chicken nuggets are actually homemade chicken Goujons consisting of at least 1 whole fresh chicken breast per portion….. All our food is home cooked and prepared from scratch on site. Our meat is sourced from a small independent butcher in the UK and we use nothing but the best quality in all we do. This is the first time in six years we have had anything other than glorious praise and feedback for our food package.

We work very hard to ensure that every angler enjoys their stay with us and work extremely hard to make sure the surroundings and experience is what they expect when visiting France.
