General comments:
Peg 5. The fishing was very hard due to very hot weather 40+ nearly every day and extremely low water levels, 2 to 3ft down from normal.
We had a thunderstorm which flooded our bivvys so please be aware if your setting up behind the sleepers because our bivvys was 4 inch in water.
The owners was very nice people and always asked if we needed any thing.
We would like to fish Augustin again but in cooler weather and higher water levels.
Peg 3 was unfishable probably 12 to 18 inches of water very low the 2 people who was fishing it asked to move down to peg 2 because it was free but if it was fully booked then they wouldn't have had the choice with there only being 4 pegs on the whole lake.
We was told we couldn't turn up till 14:00 but when we was leaving at 9 o'clock people was coming on to the lake with the owners.

*Angling Lines note* Thank you for your feedback, we are discussing the water levels and arrival times with the owner Guillaume.

Name of customer:
Lee Whitehouse
Number of anglers:

Details of your catches:
The fishing was quite tough, but everybody caught some fish. The biggest was low fifties.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Single pop ups, with a scattering of boilies.

Were the facilities what you expected?
The facilities were excellent, although we were a bit shocked that we were sharing with other anglers from a different lake. It wasn't a problem, but we weren't warned about it.

*Angling Lines note* Thank you for your feedback. We have now altered the facilities description to note it is shared with anglers from the other lake on the complex.
Were you happy with them?
Yes very.
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Yes I would. It is an amazing place. The wildlife was incredible. I've never been to such a quiet place.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes. The owners were very friendly and helpful, but were never intrusive.

General comments:
The only slight negative was the water levels, the water was very low. I appreciate its difficult to manage, but because there are so few swims, there was no option to move to deeper water if needed. Having said that, I would certainly recommend the venue and hopefully will visit again in the future.

Details of your catches:
Great trip , some good fish. Main bulk caught from the dam wall end, but all swims caught.
Jimmy in peg 1 had 5 fish in the first afternoon.
It was approx 70 to 80 carp in the week. Biggest was 57lb but we had 4 x 50's, 12 x 40's and loads of 30's .
Peg 5 had 2 x 50's.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Fishmeals worked well. We fished small bags and stringers to start with and built it up as we caught.
We used mainly standard hair rigs, snowman, wafters and bottom baits.

Were the facilities what you expected?
Yes. Brilliant, everything was great and secure location. Local supermarket only 5 mins. Loved the wild boar and deer. Brilliant setting.
Were you happy with them?
Yes
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Yes. I'd recommend to anyone.

Name of customer:
Dean Berry
Number of anglers:
4
Details of your catches:
40 fish for the week with 13 of them being 40’s, plenty of them were 45-49 too. Three of us also had 50’s, biggest going 53.8lb.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Light baiting worked best for us all really with just 20-30 baits scattered round the rigs. Few fish did get caught off the heavier baited areas but did take a while. All kinds of hookbaits and rigs worked for us but most coming from pop ups on the spinner rig.

Were the facilities what you expected?
Yes, pretty basic but everything you need.
Were you happy with them?
Yup and especially the fridge freezer space.
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
100%, great fishing.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes we have booked for the last 4 years with Angling Lines.

General comments:
Owner very friendly and nice and didn’t bother you at all. Plenty of wildlife around the lake and when I say plenty I mean it. Don't be alarmed by the noises at night it’s just deer and boar both of which we found harmless. Water levels were down when we were there but still got amongst the fish.

Details of your catches:
20 fish - biggest 39.14 grass carp, mirror 35.12. All the fish were in fantastic condition and fought really well. Weather conditions not the best, very cold nights and easterly winds, not ideal fishing weather but still managed 20 fish.

Beautiful place, amazing wildlife, can't wait to get back out, booked again from the 13/4/19, will keep you posted.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
I found best tactics were double 18mm bottom baits and kept the bait going in using a throwing stick fishing in roughly 1.8 mtr depth, nice sandy bottom so bait presentation was good.

Were the facilities what you expected?
The facilities were first class, everything you need and spotless clean, really impressed.
Were you happy with them?
Overall really pleased, that's why I have booked again, the fish are in immaculate condition, facilities excellent, the scenery is brilliant. The owner Guillaume is the nicest fishery owner I have met and very helpful. Bridget from Angling Lines popped in to see us, really nice lady, very helpful.
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Yes I would and already told a few.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes most definitely, the service you get leading up to your holiday and when you return is great, more then i have received from previous agents.

General comments:
Overall really satisfied.

Details of your catches:
We caught 18 carp all week from swim 5, covering swim 1 as well. Our average was over 38lb with the biggest being an new PB, a 59lb Mirror.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
From the moment we arrived, the location, lake, facilities and the owner (Guillame) all exceeded our expectations. Whilst the fishing was slow to begin with as the water levels had dropped and the temperatures were very warm, it still didn’t seem to bother us. We were both just in awe of the peaceful & tranquil surroundings.

Every fish we caught was a battle, regardless of size really and all screaming runs. As I said, it started off slow whilst we located the fish, but once we did, little and often amounts of bait seemed to do the trick.

Were the facilities what you expected?
Set back about 300m from the lake, they were clean and tidy. Shower, sink and cooker should you need it, as well as several fridge / freezers which was plenty of space for bait and food.
Were you happy with them?
Yes
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Guillame could not do enough for us. Always in contact when we needed it, but left us alone to enjoy the week.

This is by far not an easy water, but put the effort in and locate the fish and the rewards are worth it. There are many many waters to choose from in France and we never planned to go anywhere twice, however Augustin we would.
I suspect in years to come this place will have a long waiting list, particularly as Guillame plans to add even more fish over the winter.

In summary - the location, owner, fishing and facilities are what we look for and Augustin has it all.

Would you recommend our services to a friend?
I thought it would be useful to say a big thanks again to the hard work and support the team did for us. We had to cancel/postpone at sort notice due to a family bereavement, but the team (in particular Linda) found a way so we could still go and enjoy the trip, albeit a few days later. We have always booked with Angling lines and that is one of the reasons why. Thank you.

General comments:
We have been fishing in France for the last 7yrs and Augustin was by far the best yet. Set in acres of forestry you really are in the ‘middle of nowhere here’. The wildlife, the sounds (albeit daunting at times) seemed to send us into a calm and relaxed state of mind - some rare wildlife - Osprey, Kingfisher, Great White Egrets and Tawny Owls were all around us. However it’s a night when this place comes alive, with plenty of Wild Bore, Deer and a resident fox all roaming around making all sorts of noises. Insects we’ve never seen before, so take your bite relief, but you are in the forest after all.
