Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes 100%

General comments:
We have suggested to phillippe about a extra boat so either end has one, there are a few snags there, and the fish love them 😦

Details of your catches:
48lb mirror was the biggest fish of our trip. A handful of 30's and a beautiful 40lb 3 ounce mirror, followed by a gorgeous 39lb common, other than that the rest were all upper 20's

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
On the last peg where the out of bounds is to your right

if you look across to the far bank where the rope starts there is a wooden platform that we used as a marker and we literally picked them off from there (23 wraps), the fish were all around the back , hence why fishing was slow all week , they knew they was safe in there and we managed to pick then up on big beds of boilie and maize, make sure you fish on a tight clutch though as as soon as they are hooked they go straight for the snags and get them before they go under the rope

Were the facilities what you expected?
There was nothing wrong with the facilities
Were you happy with them?
I dont know if anybody else was unhappy but i was happy with the facilities, i also think Joanne was lovely and made us all feel very welcome, I really recommend her quiche that she makes from scratch, absolutely delicious!!!!
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
To be honest I wouldn't , no disrespect or anything but I think Phillippe should invest more into la fonte and bring it back to life, more trees more colour , the unhooking mats need replacing and the decking should really have chicken wire on top to stop you falling when it rains and to stop items falling through the gaps....... we were aware that trees had been cut down , but we wasn't expecting so many, it really made the place look very bland and too open, which is a shame really as we felt that we would of caught more if the lake had certain features, also the snag rope really isn't needed, the majority of the snags are round the back , so you might as well lose the rope

General comments:
Fantastic hospitality
Fantastic food
Just a shame you got rid of the trees as I think the look of the lake is what attracts people to the venue, you should really update your angling lines video on the place even tho you have mentioned it on the review site, a lot of people aren't going to read that.

*Angling Lines note* Thank you for your feedback, we will pass on your notes to Philippe. We are looking to update the venue video when possible, however it is only the tree line that has changed since it was filmed and for now we have a note on the video to make viewers aware this is the case.

General comments:
I've not fished at La Fonte before but can say that the trees aren't needed to have a successful week! The negative comments I have seen are rubbish!!!
Snags? Yes the lake has snags as do most lakes, so fish safe and don't fish at all costs. Fish locked up.
We had some good luck with the weather, very hot Sat, Sun, Mon and then thunderstorms for 24hours. the fished switched on.

Philippe, Joanne and Laurent are great people who did everything in their power to make our fishing trip successful and memorable. Listen to Laurent he knows the place very well.

Please pass our my thanks to them all.
Regards Adam, Dad, Foggy and Sid

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.
