General comments:
Watersmeet is a great venue with great fishing and first class accommodation that has something to offer everyone.

My 85 year old father had some of his most enjoyable fishing in recent years in the small lake. He was originally targeting the roach but was a little disappointed to only be catching small ones. However the carp soon made up for this. The carp in the small lake are plentiful and very hardfighting as I am guessing that they haven't been caught previously/ very often. There are also some lumps in there with a Common of 11lb confirmed on the scales my dad estimated that he had 15lber out of there. Make sure that you take a float/feeder rod and have a crack in the little lake as it fishes very well. My wife and daughter also enjoyed fishing and catching from there with my daughter landing an 8lb Common on light tackle.

The only complainant/suggestion that I have is that access to swim 1 on the small lake be improved. The steps are very steep and proved very challenging not just to my father but to me also! Swim 2 on the small lake could use a little trimming back to increase the area of water that could be fished.

The equipment supplied on the main lake is top notch and saves room in the car. I am far from expert on carp angling and I think more experienced anglers could really reap the rewards from the lake. The fish are plentiful as I heard many of the splashing around and in very good condition. But even I managed a PB of 32lb.

The weather for the final 2 days made fishing difficult too. The grounds are in very good condition too and there is a good supply of bank side furniture that makes life easier.

All in all a great venue and we hope to return next year.

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.

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.
