Winter 2016/17

This winter Chas has dug out and removed the last of the overgrown vegetation at the top end of the lake, extending it by another 30m right to the end, at the same time forming a small island in that part of the lake.  He has also continued the heavy pruning of some of the largest trees, this time those along the left hand side of the lake at the top to make it easier for casting.

His last job of the season will be to lay sand over gravel, hard packed, to take the wheelchair access right along the whole of the path that side of the lake.  These paths have proved to be a great success for the mobility scooter and wheelchair users visiting our lake in 2016.  Mr Partridge, fishing in late October, told us that' the access round the lake is brilliant and there was plenty of access in the gite'.  He gave us a few pointers for the gite specific to his particular disability which we shall be attending to in the coming year.

We are pleased to report that there were six new 40s which came out in 2016, but the 56lb-er was the 60lb-er previously caught, having dropped weight following spawning.

With very best wishes for 2017, good health and happiness to all our anglers and to those of you who take the time to view our web pages

Chas and Josie

Field Tester's Return From Vaux


Angling Lines field testers Mike Linstead and Paul Cooper recently spent a week at Vaux, to film and fish for some of the stunning carp in this beautiful lake. Their articles are now online...

'Early autumn is one of my favourite times of year to head over to fish for carp in France as the sport can be quite spectacular at times, as the fish prepare to bulk up for the colder months.

Having been presented the opportunity to fish at Vaux in mid-September I was inevitably filled with excitement, as this intimate little pool has a reputation for holding some really special fish.'

Another New 50lb Mirror

We are very pleased to announce that yet another new fifty, the fifth for this year, was banked at Vaux last week by James Leeman, a 56lb mirror, his PB by a long way.  This mirror was last recorded when caught by Martin Williams at 46lb12oz in October 2012 and, in fact, Martin landed another one of those new 50s in May this year.  In addition to the 56lb-er, James caught seven of the nine 30s up to 39lb8oz which were landed in that week.

The previous week, Stephen Shaw caught his PB, a superb 47lb common

Well done to all!

Chas

A Highly Successful Week

Mark, Tom and Carl were our anglers here at Vaux for a week at the end of May into June 2016, a highly successful week in which yet another carp went through the 50lb barrier, a mirror to Carl, last photographed at 37lb in 2014 and now weighing in at 53lb8oz, an incredible increase of 16lb8oz in two years.  But not only did they have this new 50, they also landed one new 40 to Tom, a mirror at 40lb2oz, and seven new 30s -  all in the same week!

Week 4th – 11th June 2016

Returning for a third visit, Rich goes home having banked 2 PBs, a mirror at 43lb13oz and a common at over 30lb.

Among the carp that James caught was his PB common at 38lb+ and a mirror at 45lb.  Over a period of four hours a single rod, with single pink micro pop-up, placed on a hot spot produced 11 fish for him.

Both the 40s are new 40s and both are two-toned mirrors.
