Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Fishing tight to far bank, using clothes/washing line rigs. Small amounts of boilies (nash scopex squid) / pellet / hemp & corn. Fishing for one bite at a time.

Snowman rigs worked the best with a bright pop up on top (pink and yellow did well). Some issues with poisson chat, so had to mesh baits.

Were the facilities what you expected?
Yes, all you need for a comfortable week.
Were you happy with them?
Yes.
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Definitely, an incredible stock of fish in a small lake.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes.

General comments:
It was a hard weeks fishing by old oaks standards, the weather really didn’t help us, really hot in the days which made the carp think about spawning and totally go off the feed so little bits of bait tight to the far bank got us our bites. We lost 3 fish due to old fishing line hanging in the water from the trees on the far bank which lead to cut offs. We also had problems with the poisson chat, we avoided fish meals but still had problems with them. But Overall it was a good week and really enjoyed it.

Fish were not up for feeding. Conditions were not ideal. Having a strategy is important and small baiting worked for us. Mehdi is a star as usual. Quality lake for experienced anglers.

General comments:
Freezing temperatures made the fishing very tough, albeit very rewarding when we did catch.

Mehdi was a great guy and very helpful if anything was needed. The local shop/bakers in Spay has everything you need... even Gas if you run out.

One thing to note; March in France is a big trout season... which meant the match lake adjacent was rammed most of the week, diesel generators and hooters going off etc. So if you like more peace and quiet then try another month.

All this being said, we will certainly be planning a trip back in the near future. Thanks Angling Lines!
