General comments:
Hard week - warm days, cold nights and high wind. Fishing changed mid week, most fish coming out of north bay. Lots of thirties but lots coming out at 38lb+ so next year would expect lots of 40's.

Lifting fish is hard from the dam wall, so a few lower platforms and steps would be good.

General comments:
Why not ask what is wanted in the breakfast baguette after all there was only four fishermen.

*Owner’s note* We’re really saddened that your group didn’t enjoy the food package – had you made us aware at the time, rather than after the fact, we would have worked to resolve this amicably for you.

Stephen Weddell
Number of anglers:

Details of your catches:
Carp caught to 54Ib.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Bed of boilies, spomb mix as attractor, PVA mesh on hook .

Were the facilities what you expected?
Overall no, very basic. Showers OK. walking into eating area you walk by 3 big bird cages not pleasant !.
Were you happy with them?
Not really, in need of update. Cooking your own meals would not be easy.
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
NO, not without fully explaining what to expect.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
No, not if this is what most of your lakes are like. On your Website you make it look great, it could be with some work put into it.

General comments:
Roaming around the site are various poultry & animals creating filth were you walk between shower block & eating area!. We had the food package 600euros for 4 people in all the years fishing in France this was the worst, not worth the money. The eqpt, supplied for unhooking is sub-standard. Will not be returning.

Details of your catches:
A range of fish from 20s 30s 40s and 50s

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Pop up basic rigs

Were the facilities what you expected?
No Should we have chosen to self cater our lake had 2x buildings one of which was a large shed which housed the non flush toilet and rubbish bins, not a great deal but as the owners tell me they have been there for 14 years I would expect better. The second unit was a second hand walk in fridge unit which appeared not to have been cleaned thoroughly in sometime, it housed a cooker sink which was not plumbed in 3x kettles which I guess was for making hot water a broken kitchen unit, table and chairs, no fridge/ freezer, electricity, utensils, pots and pans. The fridge/ freezer was in the barn building along with one of the showers also not clean. Worst still we choose the food package and had to dine in the gite which on entering the gite you are confronted with the owners 3x bird cages which appeared not to have been cleaned in sometime with bird faeces over the floor so if you were to use the shower in the gite you would walk through the bird faeces to get to it. The dining room was also not clean many dead fly's on the window sills and side units thick with dust. When the dinners were served the dinner set and cutlery looked like it was left from the previous owners.
Were you happy with them?
No as above.

General comments:
The biggest issue we had was we spent 150 euros each on the food package and it was the worst I have ever experience they could not have spent more than 100 euros to feed us all week. The first night we had turkey escalope frozen veg and chips (the cheap off cut chips) then roast pork frozen potatoes, and peas then pie chips one frozen veg again, spaghetti bolognaise, plain pan fried chicken with chips and frozen veg. The puddings were all cold rice pudding from a tin with jam, trifle with single cream poured over? cheap chocolate brownie with cold chocolate sauce to mention a few. Out of all the places I have ever eaten this was by far the worst and I would like to be reimbursed my 150 euros as I feel totally robbed. I felt ill from the smell of birds and old cooking oil. We realised on the last day that the owners locked in internal kitchen door so we could not stumble in as my colleague looked through the window and said the kitchen was not good I would also like to know from you what food and hygiene inspections and standards are met and expected for a lake to advertise on your site. I would also like to know are you visiting these sites before they go on your site and are regularly checking them. I will be looking into the French law regarding this as I will be seeking my 150 euros back along with my friends. I do believe that originally the owners had good intentions but they have appeared to let things go as the surrounding areas of the gite is a complete mess with old cool boxes and rubbish everywhere they appear to spend their time tending to their animals over the fishing lake. The fish and lake are beautiful however it will not be long before they lose a fish as the equipment is sub standard the beanie style mats are completely worn out with holes being patched up by the owners and weigh slings zips broken. On the dam bank there was no cut outs or proper swims to get down to the water in the other swims they had steels sticking out of the ground no life ring or boat to which they told us Angling Lines do not like them an accident waiting to happen. I believe Angling Lines have a duty of care and responsibility to its customers to deal with these issues and I would like to know what compensation for the food package we will get. I look forward to your reply regards.

*Angling Lines note* This group's feedback has been a real disappointment for us and the lake owners as it really flies in the face of the rest of the feedbacks received this season - both before and after their trip. We have discussed their queries above directly with them, but to clarify; we do of course have a contract plus a declaration of good practice which is signed by venues each and every year, including a clause on health and hygiene laws where food packages are provided. We visit all venues multiple times before and after they join the Angling Lines group. We have had a long standing relationship of over 8 years with the owners of Alder Lake and are satisfied they meet these standards.

Chris & Steph are fantastic hosts, the venue is very tranquil, lots of wildlife in the area, hard fighting fish that can be a challenge to catch. Nice improvement since our last visit was a large chest freezer for bait
