11 fish to 52lb 4oz

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
We caught on snowman presentations and hinged stiff rig presentations.

Were the facilities what you expected?
The facilities were as expected, they could do with some improvements. An english toilet is a must if we were to return again in the future. The anglers lodge is perfect to use as a base.

Yes, we knew what to expect so we weren't disappointed.

Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Yes I would recommend the venue to friends, the lake itself is beautiful and relaxing. The swims are adequate and the fishing is good. Guillaume is friendly and helpful, the language barrier wasn't particularly a problem and he was on hand to answer any questions all the time.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes, I have used Angling Lines a couple of times now and have a future booking.

General comments:
My first trip to nautical was a very enjoyable experience having fished in france for over 25 years on many varied lakes and set ups. It was a big surprise to find a lake of this calibre so under fished.

The owner guillaume is a fish farmer and knows exactly what is best for is fishery and his ideas for improving is fishery and fish stocks. I advise take note of his advice on his fishery he knows is carp and what they like. Guillaume is a very quite and friendly guy, his English is very good and his fishery was a pleasure to fish with a big head of carp over 30lb.

I will be returning next year as its one of the best fisheries I have been fortunate to find in france. Tight lines. Bonne chance

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Bait boat to dam wall with just pellets and a mainline pineapple pop up on a multi rig .

Were the facilities what you expected?
Yes very basic but do the job intended and clean
Were you happy with them?
Power tripped off now and again not a big problem but could off been for charging bait boat battery's if the fishing was a bit more hectic! as I'm guessing could be in the summer mouths!
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Yes
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes

General comments:
Access to the pegs was very bad but this was due to the amount off rain we had and the lake had the previous wks prier to our arrival was a bit swampy but no1 can control the weather . The owner is a nice guy very little English but anything we needed was sorted asap sound guy

Name of customer:
Daniel Brooks
Number of anglers:
1
Details of your catches:
I had 15 takes but only managed to land 10 of them.
Even though I lost 5 I was over the moon to catch two 50lb mirror carp

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Reading the advise on the Anglinglines website and watching the video I chose to fish boilies and matching pellets

Were the facilities what you expected?
Unfortunately my heart sank when I saw the facilities, a stand up toilet and a shower that runs hot for a couple minutes was not what a pay hundreds of pounds for!!! Time to update as its 2015!!!!

*Angling Lines note* Whilst we are aware that the toilet is a French style one (and have always included this information on the website), we have never had any issues with the shower running cold and have spent two weeks there ourselves. We'll bring this up with the owner.
Were you happy with them?
No, needs bringing in to the future.
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Even the facilities where in the Stone Age I will be returning to the lake later next year as disbite the disappointing facilities the lake and the surrounding countryside and towns where fantastic.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
I would use Anglinglines again and again, absolutely fantastic service and understanding of every aspect of your trip. FANTASTIC FANTASTIC AND FANTASTIC.

General comments:
Brilliant company to book with brilliant venue, low grade facilities but the fishing makes up for any disappointment.

Sat 18th Oct to Sat 25th Oct 2014
Name of customer:
Bradley Dent
Number of anglers:
1
Details of your catches:
I had a beautiful 36lb mirror, I also lost a very nice fish on the last night.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
I used a boilie stick to spread about 2kg of boilies over each rod when I cast. I caught my fish on Mad Baits The Nutz boilie topped with fake corn. A combination of Mad Baits The Nutz and Mad Baits Wicked Whites spread widely tempted my only fish of the session.

Were the facilities what you expected?
Yes, although we couldn’t work out how to get the shower hot until mid week :)
Were you happy with them?
Yes
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Yes definitely. The location and scenery of Nautica is beautiful and much nicer than I expected.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes

General comments:
The combination of a beautiful lake and stunning scenery made for a very peaceful week on the bank of Nautica. Although I only caught 1 fish this trip is a memory that will live with me forever.

Holiday date:
Sat 30th Aug to Thu 4th Sep 2014
Name of customer:
David Keep
Number of anglers:
2
Details of your catches:
Short 5 day session produced 15 carp, 6 of which were over 36lb+ and the rest averaged 32lb.

Unfortunately we didn't catch any of the big girls - we left that to the anglers who followed us into our swim - they had 2 x 50lb+ Bugger!

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
We fished swim 8 & I started with my normal small bait over particle approach - which produced nothing for the first 48hrs! Then took Guillaume's, the owner, advice and fished 20mm boilie over boilie & pellet... & started catching! Lesson learned - always listen to the owner. All fish took at 100 yards + cast after wading in around 30 yards - so approx 130 yards from the bank.

Were the facilities what you expected?
Yes
Were you happy with them?
Yes
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Yes wholeheartedly. This is proper French carping on a totally natural lake.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes

General comments:
I really enjoyed this session. It reminded me so much of my early days in France on lakes like Salagou because the carp are virtually unfished for - so runs are just screamers! The owner, Guillaume, is a really nice guy too. He's set the lake up as natural as possible & it's clear he understands what's necessary to get the feeling of being back to nature. You won't find any manicured swims here but if you're looking to fish for very big carp in a genuine French lake then Nautica is the place to go. I loved it!
