Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Boilies, some tipped off with pink pop ups, and some with yellow. Far margin seemed to produce best once we found correct spot. Now tree line has gone carp seem very wary of far margin, most fish caught at night when they felt safer. Very silty from swim 2 up to swim 3.

General comments:
Where they cut the trees down on the opposite bank around the lake there where a lot of branches left in the lake causing snags so we had to clean the area so we could fish there. We feel that these should of been cleared before we arrived seeing as Philippe was so concerned about the snags. We were told that there was 2 catfish in the lake and we found out in the week one of them had died and also some carp.

*Angling Lines note* We can confirm the lake lost 4 carp and one catfish a few months ago. There did not appear to be proof of a common cause - it is normal for lakes to lose a few fish each year down to natural causes and we do not believe this has impacted catch reports. Regarding the branches on the far bank, we apologise if these caused you any issues. We had two people at the lake clearing them one day last week and will continue to do so.

General comments:
AL confirmed a few weeks pre trip that the lake had been reduced to a 5 angler lake due to the rope on peg 3 - we found this to be of no concern to us, we comfortably fished 3 rods each in all 3 swims with plenty of room to move rods around etc - please do not be put off by this notification (it is almost harsh to have had it reduced down to 5) - that being said from the catch reports on site - the lake would fish most productively with 3-4 anglers to allow the fish to be less pressured and not hold up in the out of bounds channel running around the side of the water to peg 3. (Suggestion that this should be blocked off to allow the fish to hold up in the lake not the out of bounds).

General comments:
Not enough casting room on pegs 1 and 2 which resulted in a broken rod for one angler, general maintenance needs to be carried out on pegs and lake. Loads of under water snags need removing. Fish need removing from out of bounds area and and out of bounds area needs closing off as I would estimate a quarter of the lakes stock is here.

*Owners note* Thank you for your feedback. Concerning the first swim I have now cut the bushes on both sides. And I will do it further this week as I was asked by the anglers. Concerning the second swim, I think the issue you had was with the rope I have put towards where the swim narrows at the back walkway to prevent anglers from falling in the water (it is an easy miss-step to make). The angler who is fishing there this week told me there was no problem for him. This being said I will try to find a solution to get rid of the ropes so they can not be caught when casting and still prevent the anglers from falling.

I will have to wait till the end of the season to get rid of remaining snags that are behind the rope.
