Name of customer:
Ian Sweenie
Number of anglers:
3
Details of your catches:
About 15 good fish from 22 up to 36.10. Around 60 small carp to 6lb most of which were removed to another water.

*Angling Lines note* Ian was part of a group very kindly fishing this week with the aim of removing as many small carp as possible - only the prettiest small carp stayed and the majority were removed to a stock pond to grow on.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
I fished the tree line on the far bank feeding a tin of sweetcorn every morning and every evening. I caught on tiger nut boilies and plastic corn

Name of customer:
Linda Latham
Number of anglers:
2
Details of your catches:
We had 13 fish between us up to 21lb, great looking fish, they were hard fighting and in good condition. We had between the 3 of us 60+ fish which were under 6lb and taken to a stock pond (part of our job whilst there).

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
We started with boilies but found for the smaller fish that we were after double sweetcorn on the hook and pellet/groundbait in a feeder worked best.

Were the facilities what you expected?
The house was great to come home to after a days fishing in the rain, very warm for November and we didn't need to put the log burner on. We had the master bedroom overlooking the lake with its own shower room and dressing room. Large family kitchen with dishwasher, we did take a slow cooker so dinner was ready when we got in. Lovely and clean house with everything we needed on hand.
Were you happy with them?
The lake was splendid in its autumnal colours and when the sun came out a great place to be. The house at the top of the lawn stood proud and was surrounded by a large veranda for the warmer summers with table tennis, dining area, BBQ outside. When it dropped dark we spent the evenings talking over dinner about the fishing and with a few glasses of wine proceeded to the pool table for a relaxing game. The lounge has loads of space with 3 sofa's and a tv, lots of games and books for all to enjoy. We found the house amazing with lots of room for an extended family group to have a great time, even a small games room for little children :-)

Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Yes I would, I would love to go back with a group of friends to have a holiday together (wish I had thought about it for Xmas) but someone has already beaten me to it this year.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes I do but I work for Angling Lines and love my job especially when I get the chance to fish as well.

General comments:
I can see this as a great family venue, with mums resting under the veranda and children playing football on the large garden lawn, some with dad or kids fishing at the lakeside with lots of space and great sport to be had.

Details of your catches:
1x34 lb mirror
6x20+ lb mirrors - low twenties

various smaller fish up to max 4-5lb

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
light feed and standard boilie set up
moving to feeding fish and variety of baits/set ups
hot sunny conditions so dawn/dusk best

Were the facilities what you expected?
Yes - gite very spacious and full of character. The decked veranda is a star feature as dining outside adds to experience and sheltered from sun/rain (no rain on our stay). Secure garden good for dog to run freely.

Lake would benefit from better management - some pegs dilapidated and some inaccessible due to bushes. Small fish need removing,
bigger barbecue would be useful.

Appox 25 fish caught, biggest fish 34lb, over 15 fish below 10lb

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
18mm Boilies, hookbaits double 18mm boilies to get the bigger fish

Were the facilities what you expected?
Yes , ideal for a relaxing holiday with some casual fishing during the afternoon and early evening.
Were you happy with them?
There have been several minor issues highlighted in recent feedback which have not been addressed. Bouncy Decking, interior paintwork, middle swim on the lake has collapsed, small carp.

Unfortunately we felt the property is suffering from a lack of basic maintenance, these are simple inexpensive repairs that would make a big difference to the feel of the property overall, Issues that need attention as follows:

Paintwork, unfinished & interior doors are grubby.
Large sticker on Velux window in stairwell
Broken toilet system in shared bathroom.
Light bulbs with no fittings hanging on wire.
Middle swim on lake has been in disrepair for some time.
Small carp.

Also we had to clean the glass on the french doors into the kitchen.
However, bedding & bathroom were clean & to a good standard & the facilities overall were good

Accommodation (rated 1-5):
Facilities: 4 Star Rating
Cleanliness: 1 Star Rating

Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
No, unless the highlighted maintenance is carried out
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes.

General comments:
We had a great relaxing holiday, and enjoyed the area and property overall.

*Angling Lines note* Thank you for your feedback, the owner is aware and all these points will be actioned as soon as possible over the next few weeks.

Name of customer:
Simon Taylor
Number of anglers:
3
Details of your catches:
52 carp, 40 of which were under 6lb the rest between 10- 22lb.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
We fished 4 18mm boilies to avoid the smaller fish which worked to a degree.
Bait margins under trees and fish a spot for an hour to take the bigger fish. Surface fishing with dog biscuits very effective.

Were the facilities what you expected?
Yes, massive house
Were you happy with them?
Yes, house could do with paint work refreshing, decking very bouncy and steps to decking need making safer.

Yes
Would you recommend our services to a friend?

General comments:
Lake has a massive stock of small carp which are a nuisance. The larger carp are under weight due to the sheer numbers of small fish taking the bait. If we were to go again I would take 35mm baits.

*Angling Lines note* Thank you for your feedback, we are in discussion with the owner on how best to resolve this quickly.

Sat 20th Jul to Sat 27th Jul 2019 Simon Taylor 20lb 1oz


Holiday date:
Sat 15th Jun to Sat 22nd Jun 2019
Name of customer:
Gerald Watt
Number of anglers:
3
Details of your catches:
Overall we caught around 40 fish in the week with around 10 also getting away. Smallest was around 4lb and biggest around 26lb . There were 3 anglers in our party and the lake was more than adequate to accommodate the 3 of us.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Boilies and pop ups 15mm & 18mm were the main dish. Both Pellets and Boilies are available from the facility so no need to take your own but give plenty of notice pre arrival.

Were the facilities what you expected?
The facilities are spot on. The large house is more than adequate and can accommodate large parties up to 12 if required (However only 3 are able to fish I believe). It’s around 2 hrs from Caen or 2 3/4 from Cherbourg so nice time for a drive and take in the French atmosphere. There’s plenty of room and a large decking area outside under cover for a Barbeque or just a sit round table and chill. All amenities are provided including washing machine, dish washer and for the kids a pool table and table football. The nearest town is around a mile away but you will need to travel a couple more to get the bigger super market facilities.
Were you happy with them?
Yes we really enjoyed our week there and would certainly recommend it to any travellers either family or fishing party. There is plenty of wild life there including birds, water rats and a very friendly rat who in enjoys the odd boilie down by the lake which is around 30 yards from the house.

Accommodation (rated 1-5):
Facilities: 5 Star Rating
Cleanliness: 5 Star Rating
Overall: 5 Star Rating

Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Definately... most highly recommended.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Angling lines were extremely helpful and informative in all our communications and instructions from the start of the booking until the return. They are very friendly and I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a reliable and conscientious company who take pride in their work and customer service/requirements.

General comments:
Overall we had a fabulous week and thoroughly enjoyed the facilities where we stayed. A big thank you to the team at Angling Lines who arranged everything and made us very welcome.

Name of customer:
Anthony Brzezicki
Number of anglers:
1
Details of your catches:
32 fish, half below 10 lbs, and around 14 20-22 lb. often the same fish. Overall fishing was disappointing.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Used the venue bailies as bait on a popped up combining. Nearly all the big fish came from the willow across and to the left of Doug’s swim. As the lake is narrow had had more bites but got snagged on the bank to my left which is one huge snag

Were the facilities what you expected?
House great. Couldn’t fault it. And Guillame was just amazing. What a nice guy and nothing was too much trouble.
Were you happy with them?
Yes. Very. Just great.

Accommodation (rated 1-5):

Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
For a holiday, it not as a fishing venue.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes.

General comments:
Tylans needs to decide if it is a holiday venue or a fishing one. If a fishing one it needs the small fish cleared out and some 30s and 40 s put in. The pegs are starting to collapse and need attention, and the overhanging trees make casting v hard in Doug’s. Recommend a bait boat.

*Angling Lines note* Thank you for your feedback. Despite netting, many small nuisance carp remain & the owner is actively trying to resolve this.
