Le distribpain

Sadly our local Boulangerie suffered the same fate of many other shops in little villages and closed down when the owner retired and no new baker was forthcoming.

Now though we have a brand new DISTRIBPAIN installed in the village square, each morning a baker from Chatelus Malvaleix loads the vending machine up with fresh breads and some patissaries. We often walk or cycle by to get a lovely fresh loaf, we have discovered that we need to buy two as the first one gets heavilly nibbled on the way home.

So if you have a hankering for fresh French bread nip out to Nouzerine which is only 2.5km from the venue, but don’t leave it too late - the breads go quickly to the people in the know!

Half year results 2019

As you can see in the chart of the catch reports, Alder has been fishing extremely well and for all weeks bar one, more thirties came out than twenties (and that week was a Grassie festival).

A great example of the fishing was the w/e 22 June when 58 carp to 54lbs were landed by the two King brothers on their 4th trip to Alder/Notaires.

Ross caught  3 x teens, 4 x twenties, 17 x thirties, 5 x forties, 1 x fifty (52lbs PB) and
Marvin: 9 x twenties, 12 x thirties, 6 x forties, 1 x fifty (54lbs PB)

The lads were breaking with common practice and fishing the stump swim as a double using a simple hair rig with Boilie fished over a bed of pellet or maize.

Alder Catch report for 2018

It has been a great year with the carp weights rapidly increasing: 60% of the carp landed were 30lbs and above, well up from 47% last year


It has been a year of extremes with the spring being extremely wet and the rest of the year extremely hot and dry, running well into October.


In total there were 62 x teens (mainly grass carp) 257 x twenties, 425 x thirties, 82 x forties & 8 x fifties.


The average catch per angler has remained very similar to last year at 11.3 carp per angler versus 11.7 last year. This was better than I had thought as I expected the catch to go down as the weights went up.


The best result this year came from John Burnhope who landed 52 carp in a week (3 x teens, 15 x twenties, 27 x thirties, 6 x forties and a fifty!) Well done John.


It's noticable the the top 4 results came from small groups (1 or 2 anglers) who took advantage of our sliding scale for a lake exclusive.


Apart from the very beginning and very end of the season, the lake has fished pretty consistently. In the final week of the season (20 - 27 Oct) the temperatures dropped quite quickly culminating in a major snow storm in central France on 29 Oct - just as we had a few days away!


So congratulations and thank you to all who fished Alder this year. We hope that you have a good 2018 and hope to see you again some time.

First trip to France nets a fifty

On his first trip to France Ryan successively increased his PB and today pushed it up to 53lbs with a mirror caught from the Silver Birch swim. Ryan had just switched to Quest Baits Special Crab. The boilie was fished over a bed of Lake Partimix.

Matt has also been increasing his PB and is not far behind with a 46lb 14oz mirror.

New for 2018

After conversations with respected anglers and Fisheries consultants about bio-security we have decided only to allow lake nets, mats and slings. So will be supplying our own net, unhooking mat and weighing sling for each angler.

Netting Alder


Some time lapse video from the Alder netting using the guys as walking depth gauges, water level is down by about a meter for the netting. Jack split the lake in two with nets and netted each half separately. The netting of the deep end was mainly done by boat. Many thanks to Jack and Dan of JS Fisheries who did a great job in horrible weather! 

This netting was carried out to reduce the amount of silver fish.

Catch report for 2017

 

I've worked through the Alder catch reports for 2017, I don't have every single report and they were not always reported in the same format so there is a little guesswork in there for the exact breakdown

665 carp were caught; 292 twenties, 274 thirties and 42 forties. This is an average of 11.7 carp per angler.

The chart of average catch per angler shows that the lake fished it's best during the summer, despite the heat and the drought!

Best individual result was Roger Spendif with 42 carp on his first week, he also caught 35 the second week showing that it wasn't a fluke. Tim Suttle also landed 35 carp in slightly less than a week. Congratulations to both anglers and thanks to everybody who fished with us in 2017.
