General comments:
It was a particularly hot time of year to fish well and the weed in the lake in my cabin swim was horrendous. I bought a brand new bait boat for this trip when i tried to use it the weed clogged the propella and eventaly broke it. Deeper pro + could not be used as it stated insufficient depth due to the weed. Upon returning to england i have a torn muscle in my shoulder this was also due to dragging in the weed.

*Angling Lines note* We have spoken to both the customer and lake owner at length regarding this. We understand the weed made testing conditions for some of our anglers this summer due in no small part to the heatwave we have endured in France this year, with temperatures way above 40 degrees as a common occurrence. Please see the latest news section for an update on the conditions now, which are improving.

General comments:
Overall we were disappointed with our trip to Molyneux this year. The hot weather didnt help which we cannot control and appreciate this. But given the warmer weather and the conditions on the lake (large weed growth, low oxygenation) we felt more could have been done by our hosts to ensure this trip was still enjoyable. Previously the owners have offered to help with things on the lake (boating out baits or clearing spots). This was offered again but very reluctantly and when our group did ask we was told this wouldn't become a habit so don't expect it again which is very frustrating given the amount we paid as a group to fish here.
Also in the run up to our trip we was informed the bait order we had placed 2-3 weeks prior could not be delivered (having previously had confirmation) as stocks of maize was out at their local suppliers. Again appreciate these things happen but to be informed on the day or travel was frustrating for the group. This is when we also had a note about "some" weed growth on the lake. Now again we half expected some as the previous year there had been a growth over 1 swim but not to the extent it was currently at. Having planned for months in advance and thinking we would be fishing to mostly clear areas again this made the trip more challenging as some people in the group were simply not geared up for this type of fishing. Something that could have been told to us weeks in advance.
In summary we would not return again to this fishery and would not recommend to anyone else.

*Angling Lines comment* We are always saddened to read feedback such as this and understand your frustration. After the unprecedented and extended heatwave, temperatures into 30's and 40's consistently, we understand the lake has been very testing for anglers due to weed growth. We have discussed this at length with bailiff Wally and agree that keeping anglers up to speed with conditions at the lake is important.

Details of your catches:
4 of us caught. Very weedy causing some to have limited catches or none. I had 7 fish- 5 20s and 2 @ 35lb plus. My friend shared Jacks swim with me and had around 12 fish including a 39lb cat and 32lb mirror

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
All mine caught on Sticky krill boilies tipped with pop up fake maize. Sent out in a bait boat also loaded with lakes own mixed particles and pellet plus glugged chopped krill boilies

Were the facilities what you expected?
Good facilities. We were near the shower block and anglers cabin had good size fridges for bulk food and beer 😀
Were you happy with them?
Yes. Refreshing showers 👍
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Yes- however nearly 50% more expensive than last year (at a different lake not within Angling Lines group) so as long as they think the premium price is worth it
Would you recommend our services to a friend?

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Couldn't use bait boat as it got caught in the weed. Lots of weed in front of every swim, owner didn't offer to clear it, even his own boat got blocked with weed. Won't go back again.

Were the facilities what you expected?
No.

No.

No.

General comments:
Very disappointed with condition of lake, have pictures on my phone.

*Angling Lines note* We're sorry you struggled with the weed this week. Bailiff Wally is actively clearing the weed throughout the season as normal and on your particular week did also clear any problem patches when asked for other swims. We know that this particular week France also experienced record breaking temperatures (40+ degrees most days) which we understand will have made the week a testing one.
