Details of your catches:
In total over the 6 days of fishing, my brother and I caught 27 ranging from a very nice small Rud to a 39lbs Mirror all of which were in very good condition. We did catch a few smaller commons and mirrors in the 27 but the majority were in the mid 20's.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
A mix of baits but the majority on bloodworm dumbells

Were the facilities what you expected?
Found the lake easily from the directions given. Lake water was a bit green with algae but still fished well. Guillaume was more than helpful and very informative about the lake.
Were you happy with them?
Facilities are 5* all very clean and well presented we had no complaints on any aspect of them. Obviously, Sandrine had done a great job of cleaning the house after the previous occupants as it was all spotlessly clean and some welcoming beers in the fridge.

The lake is small compared with some of the others and if you are going for the big carp maybe not for you but given time some of the ones which are there will grow into specimen ones. Accommodation is first class and set in wonderful surroundings.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Never had a bad holiday or venue with Angling Lines. Helpful informative staff a joy to deal with.

Details of your catches:
The fishing was not what we expected. There is a lot of 2lb to 5lb carp that continually took 20mm boilies, this was great sport for our 10 year old son but disappointing when you are targeting bigger fish.

I had one carp at 24lb and one at 11lb and we fished every evening.. my son and I must have had 20 of the smaller carp mentioned above.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
I tried everything. Lots of bait at the beginning of the week to just using bags and stringo’s in the latter stages. Had the largest carp with 20mm boilie with a piece of artificial corn.

Were the facilities what you expected?
The house and grounds met our expectations. It really is a special place. It does look a bit tired on the decking areas but on the whole we loved the house.
Were you happy with them?
My wife was not entirely happy with the general cleanliness. She had to change one of the quilts because it was a bit dirty.

Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
I would recommend the house and grounds for large families as we believe it is ideal for a relaxing holiday.

Fishing wise , based on my experience I feel it needs a stock pond where the kids could be entertained catching the small carp 2-5lb. Or drastically reduce the amount of smaller fish. I have seen reports of multiple catches of 20 pound fish, based on my experience I don’t believe there is a lot of large carp in there. Or we chose a bad week?

I wouldn’t recommend the water as a serious carping venue unless more larger fish were added.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Angling Lines were really really professional and we will use them again and would recommend to a friend.

General comments:
Great place to stay, disappointed with the fish caught.

*Angling Lines note* Thank you for your feedback. The lake will be netted in the winter to reduce the number of small fish. We have passed your feedback on to the owner.

Details of your catches:
Mirrors: *23lb 2oz Beths French PB*, 21lb 10oz, 20lb 14oz, 19lb 12oz, 18lb 4oz, 17lb 6oz, 15b 15oz, and 2 x 14lb 14oz
Commons: 22lb 15oz
Over 80 carp under 2lb - these were coming out on 20mm topped boilies!! they couldn't even fit the bait in their mouths but where still taking a size 6 hook!

*Angling Lines note* Despite a netting to remove the small fish in November '17, there has been a bloom of small 2/3lb carp this summer, the owners are actively removing these when possible and we are organising a keep net so that anglers can place anything of this size there.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Combi rigs 8" with a 20mm boilie topped with a piece of fake corn.

Were the facilities what you expected?
They were better than expected. Couldn't of wished for more!

Accommodation is to die for! Lovely house set in lovely grounds kept to a very high standard.

Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Yes, as its fishing at the minute I would recommend to anyone who is just starting out as you get loads of practice. Once the small fish are netted and removed it would make for a lot better fishing however still managed 10 decent fish across the week (14-23lb) between the two of us so we where happy with that.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
100% - We use angling lines for all of our France holidays. The whole process is made so easy.

Details of your catches:
The week started off a little slow but that was probably due to the very cold and windy conditions, but we started to get into the fish on Monday, all the fish we caught were mid 20's and in really good condition for the time of year, some of them had body flank marks which we cannot explain as we used 24 inches of rig tube on every rod, we treated them all with antibiotics before returning them to the water, All told we had 10 fish, 7 for John and 3 for Lyn. All fought well and were very strong pullers.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
We used a bait boat to get to the spots where we had seen fish showing, fishing from Guilluane's swim we fished the far two corners to the left and the far two corners to the right, so one angler in the shallow water and one in the deeper water at the dam end, I kept the rigs as simple as possible, 6 inch in length, 20 lb semi stiff coated braid to a simple hair rig, 18mm boilie topped of with a piece of artificial corn, 5 mm. between the hook and bait, hook size 6 and 8 both worked well, although runs were slow in coming nearly all ended in a fish on the bank. The runs were sudden with no prior indication, we baited the swims with chopped boilies whole boilies and sweetcorn. once a day in the morning and again after a fish was caught, my advice is leave your rigs out for at least 3 hours before checking them.

Were the facilities what you expected?
The house itself is a fantastic venue and most things are there that are required, we were only two and the house sleeps eight so we had more than enough room, some thing can do with improvement but nothing that cannot be rectified with a little thought, they are lights in the kitchen, steps to the outside decking area, instructions on the cooker, curtains in the master bedroom, UK plug adapters or extension lead, one plug in the reception room is loose and in need of repair.

*Owner's note* Many thanks for the feedback, it’s very helpful and informative for us. We will endeavour to rectify the minor faults as quickly as possible.

Yes.

Yes I would recommend this venue to a friend but with young children I'm not sure it is quite the right place.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes we were kept very well informed and the communication was very good.

General comments:
A land line would be a very welcome addition as network facilities in France are none existing. and unless you have the bailiff added to your messenger as a friend you have no way of contacting him, (I hope it makes sense) The WiFi is OK but not a strong signal so only works in close proximity to the router,
