Details of your catches:
The group had 47 fish for the week, with in excess of 55 runs. Included in the catch were a number of 30s up to 35lb.
Fish were caught during all hours of the day/night and were in excellent condition, each one providing a superb fight.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Good quality baits proved very effective along with a pellet and maize mix. The use of a bait boat is advantageous but not essential.
There are numerous spots to search out with lots of different parts to the lake providing challenges/opportunities.

Facilities at the lake are excellent and are suitable for anglers of all different needs.
The food package is highly recommended as the owner goes above and beyond to satisfy everybody’s needs and wants.

If people are looking for a lake with good social opportunities then Birchwater certainly provides this.
The swim location means that a party of anglers are able to fish comfortably on one bank in swims that are large and well maintained.

General comments:
Had a amazing week fishing. My wife loved it as a non angling guest. The boathouse really is the best accommodation on a fishing lake I have ever seen. In beautiful surroundings and the fish put up a hell of a fight.
Music the owner is a really nice guy who can't do enough to ensure you are enjoying your fishing holiday.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
All fish were taken on a 15mm Pink DNA Baits Secret 7 pop-up fished in conjunction with a bed of 15mm and 18mm Secret 7 bottom baits, hemp, corn and tiger nuts.

Were the facilities what you expected?
The facilities far surpassed my expectations.
Were you happy with them?
The boathouse was incredible in every way. The views across the lake were absolutely stunning, it was incredibly comfortable and was fitted out to the very highest standards. The facilities inside the boathouse were second to none, the kitchen was equipped with everything possibly needed to make it a very comfortable trip and the bathroom was perfect. The attention to detail on the little things is what really made it special, in particular the cupboard full of board games, shower gel and shampoo provided and the plentiful supply of logs for the log burner which was welcome on one of the days when it rained.

General comments:
Birchwater is possibly the most atmospheric and beautiful lakes I've had the pleasure to fish in France and spending the week in the Boathouse accommodation made it all the more special.

The fishing was terrific and had I fished through the night I almost certainly would have caught many more fish. They carp are in excellent condition and fight incredibly hard.

As a field tester for Angling Lines I rarely go back to the same lake twice in France, but I am already planning a return trip to Birchwater, due to having such a fantastic trip.

Music and Zoe Gilbert ensured we were well looked after and nothing was too much trouble. The lake and surroundings are a credit to their ongoing hard work and I'm sure the lake and the facilities will just get better and better.

Thank you for a very memorable week.
