Ian Collier
Number of anglers:
2
Details of your catches:
68 fish I believe. Commons and mirrors of various sizes.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
No fish were caught overnight or after dark. Quite random really with regards when we caught them. They move around and rather than chasing them pick a spot, ground bait and they will come to you. Good quality bait is essential. The normal carp tackle is what I used but then I only bagged 17 and I was at the dam end. My son had the rest but will not reveal his secret. Good luck

Were the facilities what you expected?
Fantastic although we chose to sleep in our bivvies there are two double bedrooms, very nice. Great gite, clean, well organised and everything you wanted plus more.
Were you happy with them?
Fabulous

Details of your catches:
Fabulous runs water, had over 80 carp between 2 of us and dad spent most the time out running in the wonderful local villages and country side

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Fishing from the lodge to the far side - about a rod length off. Also caught in the bottom of the ‘v’ but this was far less productive.

Fish meal boiles, worked best, take hard hookers which will be enough to combat the Crays.

Were the facilities what you expected?
Exceeded expectations, brilliant facilities and the hosts were great! If you're looking for a family retreat you really will struggle to beat this little piece of paradise.

Details of your catches:
Tom (pro level) - 70+ fish, all common and mirror carp up to 30lb 3oz (PB)
Richard (pro/inter level) - 27 fish, all common and mirror carp up to 30lb 15oz (PB)
Sam (novice level)- 7 fish, common and mirror carp up to 21lb 14oz (PB)

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Crill and Squid Scopex bait seemed to work well. Fishing down the middle in the 'V' also seemed to get more bites. Various weather conditions throughout the week did not hinder the level of interest from the fish.

Were the facilities what you expected?
The facilities far exceeded what was expected. The gite was furnished with a fully kitted out kitchen area including washing machine, dish washer, crockery, cutlery, pots pans etc provided. Well presented dining and seating area with sofa large enough for 3/4 people. Freeview TV, 2 good sized bedrooms with all bedding provided, good sized bathroom with shower (excellent pressure and lots of hot water!).

The external facilities and lake in general were well maintained, easily accessible and situated in a peaceful region where there is next to no noise and zero light polution.
Were you happy with them?
Extremely happy with the facilities, location and the hosts were very friendly and accommodating.
Could not recommend this place highly enough.

General comments:
What really set this holiday apart from others were the hosts, we really lucked out!
Matt, Carolyn, Katie and even Bella (the gorgeous 4 year old Alsatian who always wants to play!) all showed a genuine interest in your week not just from a fishing perspective, but were also genuinely interested in getting to know you personally.

They were always around if needed but not intrusive, helpful with recommending local shops, restaurants and places of interest and generally making your stay as easy going as possible.
Lovely genuine people who have carved a little slice of paradise for your enjoyment.

General comments:
We had thunder storms and heavy rain for 2 nights which were the best nights fishing of the week, the resulting flood waters altered the tactics for the remainder of the week which made it very enjoyable.
The lake setting was wonderful.

Name of customer:
Stephen Eastwood
Number of anglers:
1
Details of your catches:
38 Mirror and common carp best just under 30lbs lots around the low 20's. Fished a couple of hours in the morning and also in the evening from the swim in front of the Gite. Matt the owner said the fish had spawned and the high 20s were long and lean as would have been over 30 at peak

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Small snow man feeding with loose bollies just before starting to fish. Fish moved on the wind so had to change spots to follow the fish.

Were the facilities what you expected?
The Gite was ideal and was well fitted out. Plenty of hot water and a good shower. Also Gite had heating which was good as the nights were chilly
Were you happy with them?
Yes enjoyed our week at Kingfisher

Details of your catches:
Dad,mum & 2 sons 14 & 12. Biggest catch was 28lb common along with a 27lb mirror (about an hour before we left!!) 4 others between 18 - 24lb commons

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Boilies 20mm mandarin flavour seemed very popular as we baited the area by the raised rocks on the first full day with our biggest catch caught the following day and he was full of pink wee!! For the mum, sweet corn for a bit of float fishing was very rewarding!

Were the facilities what you expected?
Facilities were fab! All you would expect for a home away from home! We were made to feel very welcomed! Fresh eggs from the hens an added bonus! The whole place was extremely idyllic, I would have stayed longer!

Were you happy with them?
We were so happy! From a non fisher person I found it to be a wonderful place where you could totally relax (apart from when you're reeling in a pig!! :-)

Details of your catches:
Dad and son (10 years old)
69 x Carp
15 fish over 18lbs
Biggest 34.10
We didn’t fish every day, no night fishing and only fished between 9am and 6pm

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Fishing in the wet stuff... just like to do our own thing, not interest in what others do!

Were the facilities what you expected?
We wanted to massively thank Matt and his wife Carolyn for providing us with an amazing weeks fishing!

The accommodation exceeded all our expectations, everything was tiptop and very clean. The Evans took great steps to ensure everything you could want, or need, was thought of and provided, making the stay feel homely and very comfortable, perfect for bringing along the non-anglers too. I needed extra freezer bait space and without hesitation Matt offered us another freezer and quickly set it up in the kitchen without it being any bother or trouble, just happy to make us happy!

Were you happy with them?
The Gite was positioned right by the lake, literally only metres away! The setup was ideal as it allowed all family members to feel together and always connected, making popping back a forth between the Gite and the lake very easy and convenient. This was ideal for comfort breaks and food times with the family etc., whilst insuring the non-anglers could enjoy the garden, deck and sun loungers, but still seeing and hearing the fishermen etc.

The setting felt tranquil and quiet, it was lovely being so immersed in the idyllic countryside, certainly helped make us all feel very relaxed and hidden away in a little piece of heaven.

The lake took us by surprise, you feel very lucky and spoilt fishing this well established and cared for lake, a world away from our normal club waters! We especially loved the level of exclusivity, as you were left alone to enjoy the fishing without being bothered or watched.

General comments:
As for the fishing…  I’ve been carp fishing for the best part of twenty-five+ years, in that time I’ve fished some very good and special waters both at home and abroad! I’ve been going to Angling lines waters for the past 18 years, and lucky enough to go to five different French venues this year with my son! However, I can honestly say the week at Kingfisher is going to go down as one of our family favourites.

Between my 10-year-old son and I, we caught 69 carp (that we recorded!). We didn’t fish every day, no night fishing and only fished between 9am and 6pm. The prolific week was topped off with us catching 15 fish over 18lbs. My biggest was a 28.4 and Jack was rightly proud to catch a stunning 34.10 which was very long and has the frame to go over forty! Smashed his dad lol…! He was especially happy as it was on his own tied rigs and zero help from me end to end all week! This was the plan and why we choose Kingfisher, so he was safe and able to be completely independent and fish his own session.

I wanted to especially thank Matt for making my son Jack and I feel especially welcome and trust us to do our own thing, not constrained by inexperienced fishery management rules etc. Thanks again and we can’t wait to be back in 2018.  
 
Drew, Shirley and Jack (Beardmore’s)
