Details of your catches:
We had 8 fish in total, fishing three days only, no nights - I had 1 x 27lb, 2 x 21lb and 2 x 13lb and Bill had 2 x 24lb and his PB at 37lb 12oz.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
We found it best for the short time we were fishing to cast the bait with stringer or pva bags of boilies to signs of feeding fish, we tried pellets but this tended to bring in the smaller fish. After trying several flavours of baits Questerami and crab we found Rahja Spice to work the best for us, either single boilie with same size popup and a bit of fake corn on top or just a single boilie with floating corn just off the bottom.

Most baits used were 20mm, simple rigs were used. When I had the 27lber on one of my other rods screamed off as well so I had to shout Bill to help out, got my fish in the cradle but lost the other one at the net ☹

Were the facilities what you expected?
Lovely accommodation in the lodge
Were you happy with them?
Great facilities in the lodge, comfortable bed, hot shower and all that you need in the kitchen. Lovely view down the lake in the morning while you have a coffee, we had no time for the tv and with the lodge being under the trees it kept cool during the day. We didn’t have time to use the BBQ area but all looked good and ready to use. The parking for easy unloading is just to the right of the lodge and the pool by the owners house looked stunning and a lovely place to relax for family and non-anglers. For us the weather was 33 degrees most of the time and sitting under the shade of the trees along the margin with a gentle breeze some afternoons was a great pleasure while waiting for the fish.

Not applicable, full disclosure - I work at Angling Lines 😊 but must point out that I did pay for this holiday.

General comments:
We found the lodge and lake to be a fantastic location for that feeling of ‘a place of your own’ - a haven of relaxing fishing with the comfort of your own home. The quiet contemplation in the evening as the moon comes over the trees on the far bank and the owls call to each other. With only the plop of the bait, splash of the fish and a good scream from the reels to disturb you 😊

Unfortunately we did not start fishing until Wednesday as family commitments kept us away from the lake for the start of the week but we had a great time seeing some of the local villages, enjoying the restaurants and sightseeing with family. We would have love to have stopped longer to enjoy the lake more and find the bigger fish. Barry and Diane were very helpful and friendly, there to help when we ran out of 20mm Rahja boilies. We had a BBQ with them one night and the food was great, we didn’t have the food package as we were not sure what days we were going to be in but I am sure it will be a must for those not wanting to be tied to the kitchen.

Name of customer:
Robert Mantel
Number of anglers:

Details of your catches:
We fished only during the day until around 22 Pm. We caught 8 fish in total: 38, 37, 36, 35, 25, 21, 19 and 17 Lb (dutch pounds). Also we caught some smaller baby carp with floater rod, which was also great.



Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Boilies fished on a simple bottom or snowman rig. Pop up or zigs didn’t seem to work here. Stay away from the weed/grass for fish safety.

Barrie’s particle mix and pellets worked also really good, they go crazy for it.

Were the facilities what you expected?
Better than expected. The lodge is made by a real craftman. Everything is available, great kitchen facilities, bed, shower, outside area and a stunning view all around.

Also the lake, banks and surroundings are kept in great condition. The owners Barrie and Diane really know how to make the perfect holiday fishing lake.
Were you happy with them?
Really happy.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
18/15mm DNA SLK and S7 boilie sticked out over the old riverbed with matching wafter fished over them. The fish responded well to heavy baiting up and they do love a boilie.

Were the facilities what you expected?
Lovely facilities and immaculate we spent the week in our brollies but we used the bathroom and kitchen and cannot fault them.

Angling Lines were very helpful in sorting this venue out as we had to change our plans at the last minute, even changing the ferry crossing, top service.

General comments:
We had a great week at a fantastic venue the owners just can’t do enough for you and are both absolutely lovely, there’s some stunning fish in here to have a go at, and boy do they fight hard.
If you’re looking for a quiet location set in a lovely area with some mega fish to catch then get this place booked.

Melvyn Stanton
Number of anglers:
2
Details of your catches:
Tony caught a total of five fish, 1 common of 18lb, 4 mirrors weighing 21lb, 24lb, 28lb, 36lb.

Melvyn caught 1 mirror of 32lb, plus numerous small carp between 2lb and 7lb.


Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Boilies fished over pellets, with loose feed, also sweet corn mixed in with ground bait.

Were the facilities what you expected?
The cabin by the lake was ideal for us, it was nice and comfortable. It was spotlessly clean and fresh for us.
Were you happy with them?
Yes it was located at the bottom of the lake by the dam wall. The location was ideal you looked out of the patio doors straight onto the lake.

Accommodation (rated 1-5):
Facilities: 4 Star Rating
Cleanliness: 5 Star Rating
Overall: 5 Star Rating

Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Yes the venue, and location of the lake was ideal. I would definitely recommend it. However I think it would be better in September than in May. Purely because the fish would be hungrier and so it would be better fishing.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes I would definitely recommend your services to anybody. Everything was done for us by your company. Nothing was too much trouble.

20 fish landed, 2 lost.

13 x 20 plus- 4 over 25
4 x high teens
My 72 year old dad also had a fistful of 20 plus fish!


Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Barrie's pellets and particle mix, artificial corn, live system boilies. Balanced hook baits and wafters seemed to work the best.

Were the facilities what you expected?
The facilities were immaculate. We spent the week in the bivvies but the cabin was perfect for the odd meal, coffees in the morning and showers when needed. Barrie and Diane were the perfect hosts, anything we needed was supplied, even down to running to the shop to buy beers to console me after the loss of a big fish! Barrie's advice and knowledge of the lake was invaluable. He told us everything he could about the venue considering we were only the second anglers to fish the lake. He showed us pictures of the lake when it was drained which helped a lot with spots and possible patrol routes for the fish.
Were you happy with them?
The facilities were excellent and the service was second to none.

General comments:
The fish we caught were immaculate, hard fighting mirrors and a lovely large common with beautiful colours, some lovely fish with big apple slice scales. We really enjoyed our week as guests of Barrie and Diane and we are certainly hoping to return again next year.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Critically balanced boilie & pop up boilies using solid bag method. Pepperami also produced a few fish using standard blowback rigs.

Also baiting with particle, maggots and crushed boilie. All boilies used were quest baits spicy spirulina & special crab.

Krill & wicked tuna goo over hookbaits seemed to produce quicker bites also.

All rigs were placed using a baitboat to our clipped up areas keeping precision.

General comments:
We were fortunate enough to be the first anglers to properly fish this stunning lake and we were not dissapointed. We spent alot of time prepping where we were to setup and fish. The shallower end looked alot carpier but the fish were showing up the deep end of the lake so we spent lots of time using a deeper and marker setup to find clear areas and features to fish too. Although this took around a day in total it certainly proved worth while as the spots produced consistent runs day and night. Early hours of morning and first light seemed to produce the most runs although mid afternoon also produced a few fish.

The fish were in great condition and put up a great fight! Especially the long lean commons which were all very close and some over the 30lb mark! These will grow into stunning big fish.

Barrie & Diane were fantastic hosts. Nothing was too much trouble and they were very welcoming and informative. Barrie showed us all the photos of when the lake was previously drained and this helped us massively to understand what we're fishing too. A few of our lost fish were stuck in weedy patches as they seemed to quickly realise it was a safe area to dart too. We told barrie about this and with no issues he was out in the boat and cleared the problematic area helping us massively. We were also allowed to use the rowing boat which helped massively allowing us to free snagged fish without the risk of damage to them and the risk of snapped line in the water etc.

Although we night fished in the bivvies for the majority of the week, the accommodation was perfect and had all the facilities you could want and more.

Overall we had a fantastic week and although we never caught a 40+ we felt we were unlucky as a few of the lost fish felt much better and some we seen close in before losing were definitely much bigger fish. We can't recommend this place highly enough after fishing a few lakes in France. We look forward to hopefully returning in the near future.
