General comments:
We chose this venue as it was only 2.5 acres and neither of us are carp or even coarse anglers so we thought it would be a nice size to learn on. My dad had never caught a carp and he had 3 over 30 in the week.

We are both experience sea anglers but do no coarse fishing. First thing we learnt was to follow the fish, look for any signs of fish and follow the wind. Have already booked for next year.
Jack second ever carp 36-0

General comments:
Accommodation A+ could not ask for more.
Fishing was hard with constant temperature changes but still a respectable catch total of 23 fish between 11lb and 42lb.

Majority of catches were at night and due to a flash malfunction there are no photos to share.


Holiday date:
Sat 17th Sep to Sat 24th Sep 2016
Name of customer:
Mark Lambert
Number of anglers:
2
Details of your catches:
One angler only. The girlfriend did not fish.

2 thirties to 33lb 8oz (Mirrors)

6 twenties to 26lb 6oz (Mirrors and Commons)

10 teens to 19lb 6oz (Mirrors, Commons and Koi)

Two nights were fished and selected hours throughout the day.

It was also decided to fish the coarse lake for a few hours during our stay. However these few hours turned out to be eight hours !!! The fishing proved to be great fun on light carp gear. Many carp caught to 15lb on floaters.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Combi-rigs were used throughout the week for all bottom bait and pop-up presentations.

The baiting tactic was ‘little but often’ using a combination of Quest Baits Magnum Duo and Chilli Chocolate boilies in 10mm, 15mm and 20mm.

Hookbaits were different from the baited free offerings. Quest Baits Fruity Trifle and Rahja Spice Pimple Pops proved to be the most effective combinations used throughout the week.

Were the facilities what you expected?
The facilities provided at the venue exceeded our expectations.

The accommodation is complete with cooking facilities including oven, hob and microwave together with a full range of cutlery and crockery. There is also a fridge freezer and washing machine.

The barbecue area adjacent to the house was extremely useful and was put to good use.
Were you happy with them?
We were more than happy with the facilities provided by the owners.

Provisions were easily obtained from the supermarket located in the nearby town of Fougeres, approximately 20 minutes away from the venue.

General comments:
Although the bivvy was set up in Swim 2, carp were caught from all three swims on the lake. Carp continually showed their location throughout our stay. Therefore it was easy to move onto fish during the daylight hours. This certainly put a few extra carp on the bank. All three swims were baited on a ‘little but often’ basis.

Rod pods / stage stands are definitely required at this venue. All three swims have wooden fishing platforms. Due to the size and depth of the lake, only two rods were used during our stay.

Name of customer:
Margaret Shipp
Number of anglers:
2
Details of your catches:
30 fish caught in 48 hours over five days, ranging from 9lbs to 43lbs 10oz. Fished one night and caught the large fish at 4am Monday morning.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Pacific Tuna and nutcracker. Baited the lake, let it rest then fished.

Were the facilities what you expected?
Yes they were. Just needs a little tlc as non of the internal doors fit. We were without hot water for the first three days, as someone had complained that it was too hot !!!!!
Were you happy with them?
Oven & tableware was cracked and needs to be replaced. Same as the saucepans, but I understand that the new owners haven't had chance to see what needs doing. But it was still very homely.

Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Yes we would recommend to a friend, I have already recommended to my cousin as her partner is a keen fisherman.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Most defintely, as you have been very helpful with enabling us to change our ferry crossing on the way back to leave from Caen to Portsmouth.

General comments:
It took us over six hours to drive from Calais, and we were travelling at a steady 80 when permitted. Would travel from Portsmouth to Caen/St malo next time as it is only a 2-3 hour drive.

Fourges is a lovely little town with plenty of shops and also Larchamp very quaint. Took us 1hr 55 minutes to walk there and back.

Have already started looking for another break with Angling Lines, this time with a pool as well as a lake for 2018/2019.

**Owner's Note** Owners comment - huge apologies for the inconvenience regarding the hot water the management did endeavour to put this right as quickly as possible and this will all be checked out by our local heating company.

Also thank you for your helpful comments regarding the decor in the house. As new owners, we have taken over mid-season, and not had the opportunity to spend much time at the house. It is our intention to address all the points you have mentioned and when we reopen next year these points and others will have improved.
