Holiday date:
Sat 24th Jun to Sat 1st Jul 2017
Name of customer:
Connor Quinn
Number of anglers:
1
Details of your catches:
24lb mirror carp and unfortunately lost 2 more fish.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
The best tactics where solid bags with wafter hookbaits. The best advice comes from mark and I strongly advise you listen to his tactics from day one as he knows the lake very well and is a great angler.

Fished the lake on my own and the fish are very wise moving away from pressure constantly - stealth, hidden hooks and rigs are the key.

Were the facilities what you expected?
The facilities were great and the owners very consistently helpful and made you feel very welcome, will definitely be returning to Villefond either this year or the following year.
Were you happy with them?
The facilities are more than you need for a serious angler and also the mobile home available is great if you bring your wife/girlfriend.

I would recommend to a friend, angling lines are a great company and very helpful.

General comments:
Villefond is a beautiful venue with some real monsters and is maintained very well with a lot of care and thought about the guests that will be staying at the lake. I have to thank mark especially with the advice he gave me and rigs he showed me to help me catch very helpful and friendly. Be prepared to change your set up these are big wise fish and really will test your angling skills as I found out.
