Name of customer:
Michael Essery
Number of anglers:
2
Details of your catches:
55 Carp in total - 38 for me and 17 for my friend.

1 x 24kg
1 x 23kg
2 x 22kg
Many 13 - 20Kg

Other anglers appeared to struggle with just a few fish in their week but i'm not sure how serious they were taking the fishing.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Heavy baiting to keep the fish in front of us. Used a total of 90KG of bait.

Were the facilities what you expected?
Yes - basic but clean and everything you need for a weeks fishing. Pizza takeway and lidl also just 10 mins away in the next town. Facilities included a fridge, freezer, drinking water, shower, toilet and electric charging point. Small range of tackle and bait available on-site.
Were you happy with them?
Yes
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Yes - also the owner Guillaume is great. I forgot my alarm receiver and to my surprise Guillaume gave me his set of 3 delkims and receiver to use for the week.. free of charge. Can't ask for better than that!


Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes we made a last minute tunnel time change which you handled great.

General comments:
Ignore the previous reviewer talking about the "dangerous road". it's not a busy road and you are able to walk behind the barrier on the grass so no issues there.

Details of your catches:
55lb mirror biggest caught

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Varied for all of us.

Were the facilities what you expected?
NO, very poor. Unsafe shower with no mixer valve which meant you could burn yourself. If you fish on the far side of the lake you have about a 15minute walk in a busy road to get to the shower block and fetch your water.
Were you happy with them?
NO, even the lake was very low on water, with casting distance being only 450mm deep
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
NO
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Maybe, you should have warned us about the poor facilities

General comments:
This was my seventh fishing trip to France and this site is by far the most basic of all lakes.

*Angling Lines note* Thank you for your feedback. We do state on the website that the facilities here are very basic and we fully appreciate that this venue would not suit everybody because of that. However, Guillaume confirms there is a hot and cold mixer within the shower, so we believe there was some confusion here.

The facilties are approx 450m from swim 11 on the opposite side of the lake - a 5/6 minute walk. The furthest swim (swim 8) is approx 620m - a 7/8 minute walk.

Name of customer:
Alex Rivers
Number of anglers:

Details of your catches:
The week started off well with two fish coming out on the first morning, a 22.6lb Mirror and a 36lb mirror. As the temperatures started to drop the bites come more frequently, the Wednesday produced 6 carp the two biggest being a 46.1 new lake record grass carp and a 46.6 mirror. There was a total of 16 fish caught between 2 Angler’s. 4 pbs were beat over the week!

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
The majority of bites come from pink pop ups on a Ronnie rig over a heavily baited area. Resting swims proved crucial when temperatures reached their peaks through the days. The two biggest fell to double 15mm boileys on a blow back rig with a small pva mesh approximately 5-10 freebies.

Were the facilities what you expected?
Everything was there what you’d need for a weeks fishing, couldn’t have asked for anymore!
Were you happy with them?
Yes!
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Would recommend the Furet to anyone, had a quality week!
Would you recommend our services to a friend?

Number of anglers:

Details of your catches:
Had 1 fish 33lb and lost one, made some lovely German and dutch friends who both had 8 fish few 40s and 1 50lb! Nice average weight just went wrong time of year as they were spawning.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Snowman or live system topped with fake corn, swim 4 and 5 to the far reeds, and swim 3 in the middle, boilie and pellet in a bait boat worked the best. No luck with spodding a bed of particles.

Were the facilities what you expected?
Very poor, couldnt even sit on the toilet as knees were hitting the door. Found best to drive to the nearby supermarket and use their toilets.
Were you happy with them?
Better than nothing but very poor.
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Yeah for big fish but a very long drive. And dont expect a runs water was very difficult.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Very good service from angling lines!

General comments:

All but one of our fish were caught on maize over a large bed of maize on top of gravel area. boilies did'nt work for us.

Were the facilities what you expected?

General comments:
The weather had been exceptionally hot the previous week and vast majority of carp
had moved down to the shallows and started spawning. We were in the deeper water
by the dam and all our fish came at night or early morning.
