Name of customer:
Stewart Burrows
Number of anglers:
3
Details of your catches:
1 mirror 40lb

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Can’t comment, very slow fishing

Were the facilities what you expected?
Worse, nobody greeted us had to find the facilities ourselves, clear low level window in the shower is rather interesting apparently there was a lakeside toilet, not sure if what we found could be described as anything other than a shed with a hole in the floor
Were you happy with them?
Not really for the overall cost of the venue they are pretty poor and electrics sockets are dated and not safe
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Not as it is at present, doesn’t need a lot doing but looks like nobody has spent even €1 on the place in years
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes, but more help could be provided to help anglers when booking depending on where they are travelling from in the UK

General comments:
Would not fish this venue again, 2 of us left after 2 days to go and fish elsewhere not a comfortable place to winter fish lakeside toilet is embarrassing, very thankful there was only 3 of us track around lake isn’t even wheelbarrow friendly, not suitable to the older generation.

*Angling Lines note* We're sorry the venue did not suit your requirements and appreciate it is not for everyone - we state on the site that the lakeside wc is a basic composting toilet and that the track to the wooded bank can be difficult to navigate - but there is always the option of fishing from the dam wall which is a much more even walk from the car park.

We do apologise that Philippe was not there to welcome you to the lake, he was not far away and would have come down to the venue within the afternoon, although it is correct that he does not speak good english. We have amended the info pack to make anglers aware that he may not be there until after your time of arrival and you are welcome to get settled and start fishing.

3 anglers was about right for the venue, I think 4 or 5 is too many as the fish were mainly in the one area.

Holiday date:
Sat 1st Sep to Sat 8th Sep 2018
Name of customer:
Martin Weaire
Number of anglers:
4
Details of your catches:
13 fish
1 x 60lbs
6 x between 40 to 47 lbs
6 x between 30 to 35lbs

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
A range of baits from bottom to pop up boilies wrapped in armourgard to tiger nuts and imitation corn etc.
Most of the fish came from distance that said mid water produced as well.
Fish came at all times but found the night was less productive.
Weather was changeable but no rain, fish were showing to most areas except the bay nearest the car park.
Not one best peg as fish came from most areas, pike were a problem taking back leads and also whilst retrieving lines.
Fish were in great condition and hard fighting.
A few fish were lost as suspect crayfish were damaging terminal line whilst attempting to get at baits.
Never seen so many crayfish but tigernuts were seemed to be left alone.
For me I fished mini stiff hinged pop ups so cant comment really on bottom rigs although some fishes were caught on them but pop ups were the main rigs.
Lake bottom is hard to fine silt, silk weed in some areas but not a problem.

Were the facilities what you expected?
A bit more basic than we expected, a thunder box in the wood which was ok in desperation but a trip to the shower/toilet block was drive back out of the car park down the road turn towards the farm, up a track which took form leaving your peg to arrival of 15 minutes !!!
Shower was ok, toilet ok, charging point and fridge adequate.
The owner/bailiff was great and although we never had any problems I’m sure he would have helped out.
Were you happy with them?
Overall the facilities were just about ok that said the biggest moan we had was the walk from the car park to the pegs 1-4 were hazardous and not for less able anglers.
The gear has to be barrowed along an assault course track not for the faint hearted and a real ankle breaker.
I would guess at least a 400 yd distance to peg 1, if you arrive safely well done.
Do not expect the swims to be angler friendly, mud bank which slopes very unevenly to the waters edge which is at least 2 foot down, take waders/wellies etc to retrieve bait boats fish landing and returns.
It didn’t rain whilst we were there but would expect the banks to be as treacherous as ice.
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Definitely would recommend to others but would warn of the bank and walk assault course to swims.

Would you recommend our services to a friend?
I always travel with angling lines and never had a problem, so highly recommend them to anyone.

General comments:
Brilliant lake, great owner bailiff but could be so much better if swim banks and track to them was sorted out, the amenities whilst adequate are too far away for my liking but that said I would go back albeit with someone to carry my gear !!!!
