Details of your catches:
Ten Carp to 25lb 0oz and a small Sturgeon.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
All fish bar one (the biggest) fell to 16mm Sticky Krill boilies in bags. The biggest was caught on 15mm Mainline Peaches & Cream. The bigger fish were caught late in the week from the dam end after wasting a lot of time on pasties from the inlet area.

Were the facilities what you expected?
Everything was as expected.
Were you happy with them?
The only problem we had was with locking the Gite, but as the property is behind locked security gates it felt secure.

General comments:
It's a lovely venue with good hosts, but we finished the holiday feeling that we hadn't made the most of what was on offer. Our main problem was with the insect life. If you can't handle constant attention from wasps, DO NOT visit at the same time of year we did. They were on you every couple of minutes and I still don't know how we managed to get through the week only being stung once. And if you really don't like wasps, the hornets might stop you fishing altogether. The first evening / night we were stupid enough to use a strong torch (Rhino beam) for the photography and had an experience we're never likely to forget. Suffice to say, we only fished days after that. Go at the right time of year, pay attention to the advice given by the owner, don't take the easy route of fishing right outside the Gite and I'm sure you'll enjoy your visit and catch a lot more than we did.

Name of customer:
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

Sam Collier
Number of anglers:

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.

Number of anglers:

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
