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!
