General comments:
We fish in France 3 or 4 times a year. Whilst Vaux is not an easy water, we keep coming back as it is one of my wife's favourite venues because of the accommodation, also because we love Josie and Buddy and I suppose Chas isn't too bad either. I enjoy our chats even though he tries to make me try different methods out. I am too old to change my habits now, especially as I catch carp from all over France. Also marlin when I am in Africa. Your fluorocarbon leaders will do no use for them Chas. See you again, of course

7 carp in total

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Bottom baits using combi rigs.
3 fish on boilies, 3 fish on tiger nuts and 1 fish on maize, massive drop in water temperature from 26 degrees to 16 degrees didn't help but Vaux can be a difficult water anyway

Were the facilities what you expected?
Yes, been to Vaux on 5 occasions so knew what to expect. My wife loves the facilities.
Were you happy with them?
Yes, perfect facilities especially if taking non anglers with you.

Have done before and will continue to in the future.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes, been using Angling Lines for years and see no reason to stop doing so.

General comments:
Great to be back at Vaux after a break of about 3 years. Surprised to find that Josie has gone into semi-retirement which meant that my welcome cup of tea on arrival was also in semi-retirement. Great facilities enjoy my chats with Chas although he knows that I take some of his comments with a pinch of salt.
Hope to see you both again ( and Buddy the dog of course) in the near future.

Terry Cheesman
Number of anglers:

Details of your catches:
We caught four fish, all mirrors of 28lb, 37lb 4oz, 31lb and 30lb 8oz. Lost a couple on zigs.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Very tricky, but we caught on zigs, white pop-ups and sweetcorn on a masked hook.

Been before, so yes, all excellent.

Both lake and gite are impeccably maintained by Chas and Josie with everything you need included.

Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Most definitely, although the fish are becoming quite tricky so need some thought to catch them.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
We've been on several trips now and each one has been organised exceptionally well. A definite yes!

General comments:
We experienced blazing sun, gales, torrential rain and a huge thunderstorm, so these unsettled conditions, along with the fishes' preoccupation with the bloodworm beds made the fishing tough. They wouldn't look at anything on the surface despite showing at all times and we missed/lost a few on zigs and dropbacks to the far bank. However, the fish we did catch were all in excellent condition. We'll certainly return at maybe a more profitable time of year.

General comments:
Disappointed with our catch report for the week, first three days due to possible weather conditions as the majority of the carp were in the out of bounds area, which in turn reduced our chances of a catch. Also algae bloom over all lake. Chas is a fountain of knowledge and well worth listening to, both for fishing and French life. I am pleased to say I have come away having learned some useful tips.

Just found Chas's rig folder on last day as I have not stayed in the gite before today. May be better on line for research prior to arrival. *Angling Lines / Owner note* Information on Chas's rigs can be found under the 'Articles' section on the Vaux page. The reason for only 4.5 stars for accommodation facilities - tumble dryer not working, but a note should be found in the Vaux information file that it has not been working for some considerable time. We apologise if this could not be found, unfortunately it has been impossible to have the dryer repaired. The washing machine still works well of course.

Details of your catches:
Sadly only the one fish 19lb on a pop up.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Nothing really tried white, yellow, red, pink and many other pop ups. Wafters, spam, cell boilies active eight
You name it we tried it with little to no success.

Were the facilities what you expected?
Yes

Yes we were

Of course a lovely venue
Would you recommend our services to a friend?

General comments:
A really hard lake to fish, we pretty much tried all and everything with little success. The owner is probably one of the most friendliest fisheries owners I have ever met. An individual who cares about the welfare of his fish and more so loves to see people catching and willing to offer advise and help.
I like visiting France to catch a fish or two, fishing pretty much 24/7 and catching one fish was more than disappointing but the friendliness of the owner and seeing so many great fish in the lake will make me want to rebook at vaux to hopefully catch a big fish or two next year.

Mainly white pop ups with one on tiger nut boilie and one on triple nut snowman. Feeding maize and chopped boiles to far bank. Had a couple down shallow end of lake and one on dam wall. Most fish came out at night . Fish still spawning and hot most days so fishing was hard. All fish were in great condition.
