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.

Details of your catches:
Despite sweltering hot weather ( in 30+ degrees all week) We did well.
I had 6 really decent size, 4 good 30's and 2 x 40's.
Dad had 2 carp mid thirties. One a lovely big common.
My son had 12 carp from mid twenties up to over 40Lb
One of us had a 37lb on the Sunday and nothing the rest of the week

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:


Were the facilities what you expected?
Yes. Really good.
Shower didn't work well first two days but I told GUilluame and it was fixed straight away. (Truthfully though it was so hot weather wise we actually welcomed the colder shower!)
Were you happy with them?
Yes. Would go back.
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Yes. Beautiful, really quiet. Fantastic wildlife.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes

General comments:
The way we were spaced out I felt it was tricky for the 5 of us. Not sure how six would work. But would go back.
Will send in Photo's but been too busy to sort them yet since we returned.

Number of anglers:

Details of your catches:
48lb 6oz common
41lb 3oz mirror
1 fell off at net

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Light baiting of boilies and sweetcorn. Had to stick to a bed of bait and it took 4 days to get a pick up.

Were the facilities what you expected?
The shower, toilet and kitchen facilities were all very clean and well looked after. Fridge, bait freezer and charging facilities were excellent.
Were you happy with them?
Yes very happy with all the facilities, WiFi in the facilities would be an improvement rather having to stand outside the other house.
Please note the people who let me into the property knew nothing about carp fishing... I did not see the bailiff for the entire trip, the couple in peg 3 had not had a bite after 6 nights; I would expect a bailiff to help them. On arrival I found half a dozen rigs in the swim and lots of discarded hookbaits laying around.

*Angling Lines note* Thank you for the feedback, we do urge any angler to give Guillaume (the owner) a call if they want any pointers or advice, he is more than happy to help, otherwise tends to leave you to it.

Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
A fantastic lake with some great fishing. Prior to my trip the water had been treated with a silt treatment resulting in a ph level of 8.5! This appeared to really affect the fishing and the carp were very lathergic. Once this balance is back at a normal level I am sure it will fish a lot better.

The wildlife is amazing, birds, deer, frogs and wild boar who come to visit every night. Very peaceful lake in a beautiful forest.

Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Angling lines were fantastic, I booked the trip within 24 hours of departure. Linda was extremely helpful and made the process easy.

General comments:
Augustin is an incredibly atmospheric place, in the most incredible forest setting, Then abundance of wildlife and total peace and quiet makes the place feel totally secluded. The fish in Augustin are also very impressive and although my angling time was very limited due to filming during the day, the fish I caught was in excellent condition and very hard fighting.
