2nd year back from a week in France @ Brocard Large, well what can I say apart from it was a cracking week with the lads even though I only had 3 fish and no one come away on a blank. All new French p.b’s. I was going really well the first 2 days in and thought this is it, it’s on, but sadly it dropped right off by my birthday and losing 4 fish for the rest of the week I manage to land a 50.4 grass carp first ever 50 & 21.3 koi and 30.4 linear

Mirror carp 28, 28.8, 32.4, 25.12, 30.8

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Pop ups on ronnie rigs caught the fish. We tried flat out bottom baits and snowmen but to no avail. We also failed to get a bite on tigernuts which have caught us fish in the past

Were the facilities what you expected?
Yes, great as always and 24 hour electricity is now available in the cabin
Were you happy with them?
Yep no problems
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Yes I certainly would
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
I have lost track of the number of trips with Angling Lines now over the last fourteen or so years and the service provided has always been impeccable.

General comments:
Tough week, lost a few fish but no excuses. We enjoyed the week immensely and noticed that average weight of what we did catch was up on past years, so the future looks bright at Brocard. Franck was a gent as always (you couldn't wish for a better bailiff) and it was nice to catch up with Mark too.

General comments:
Had a really good week considering bad fishing conditions, Franck the bailiff was spot on as usual. I read in an earlier feedback comment someone struggled with understanding his english can I just say his english is much better than my French and I found no problems in communication, he will bend over backwards to help in anyway he can. This goes for Mark Slade also you couldn't ask for better bailiffs, I would recommend this venue to anyone

Name of customer:
Lee Shaw
Number of anglers:
2
Details of your catches:
7 fish in total.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Tiger nut as boilie got destroyed by poisson chat.

Were the facilities what you expected?
No, they were pretty poor.
Were you happy with them?
No. Put our batteries on charge for 2 days. Got them back and were still flat. Me and a friends.
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
For the peace and quiet of the lake yes. For the facilities and bailiff no. Was a poor overall experience for first time being abroad to fish.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Unfortunately no.

General comments:
Found the bailiff didn't take much care of the anglers. Frank don't talk English really. Facilities were really really poor. The lake itself is beautiful. Lake was really shallow and so weedy was hard to even fish.

*Owner's note* We were not aware of the charging facilities not working at any time and have received no complaints regarding this prior to this feedback, the only days these services are not available is Sunday and Monday but we do state this clearly on the rules. Bailiff Franck is at the lake Tuesday through to Friday but both Mark and Franck are always available via mobile, we supply these numbers on the info pack and urge anglers to give us a call with any problems so we can do our best to rectify them.

Holiday date:
Sat 22nd Jul to Sat 29th Jul 2017
Name of customer:
Andrew Gilbert
Number of anglers:
2
Details of your catches:
20 fish between Stewart and myself
Commons: 33..6, 35.4, 40.2, 26, 33.4, 24.4, 27.8, 28.4, 31.4, 32.12, 28.12
Mirrors: 18, 25.8, 22.8, 31, 27.8, 28.8, 28.4, 24.4
Grass: 44.12

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Double wafting tiger nuts did 90% of the bites, three fish came to a snowman.
Small amounts of tigers and boilie on a spot, productive spots got topped up a couple of times a day with another small amount of boilie and tigers. The weed growth was a little heavy in places on the lake but fishing on the fringes of it produced the bites. A thick band of weed 30 yards from the swim proved a little problematic and we dropped 11 fish between us.

Were the facilities what you expected?
Fourth time on large so no surprises, our portable generator kept things charged and the shower was clean and hot throughout the week
Were you happy with them?
Yep no problems whatsoever
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
I certainly would, a challenging venue at times, but one of my favourites. There's no hustle and bustle at brocard, its big, peaceful and excellently run.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes I would, and I do so.

General comments:
Turned up at the lake to find only us and two french guys fishing (who left wednesday morning), which really surprised me. If people are put off by the weed in the hotter months, its really nothing to worry about. Okay you are going to lose a few with barbless hooks, but we still managed plenty of fish and more than our previous visits in April and September. Missed Franck who was on holiday our week but was well looked after by Mark and Steve. All the guys and girls on Brocard Small were great and we look forwards to coming back.
