General comments:
As previously said by others, this lake has more trailing leads, snags in the swims and all over the lake, more then i have seen on any other lake ever. The lake lacks management badly to the point of serious fish kills. Swims are a fair size but again in need of serious attention, tree branches falling on bivvies to serious ant infestations (take ant powder !!!) €80.00 per row boat, broken oars and to be fair a piss take as most of the time the boats were being used to try and free his tethered or snagged fish so as they don't die.

*Owner's note*
For snags, swims 1, 7, 8 and 15/16 have shore posts out in the water. These cause problems when anglers fish close to obstacles or within 20 meters of shore. We also find this when anglers fish too close to the island, with the distance there is too much elasticity on the line. Franck is always very happy to explain about any obstacles around the lake and how best to avoid these from any of the swims.

Every year we take a grapple round the lake to remove any lines and big branches. In terms of danger for the carp with snags, we insist on barbless fishing and therefore the hook is ejected easily. We have never lost a carp to tethering to our knowledge.

Regarding the boats, it is not the oars that break (never had breakage) but the oar locks, which break for safety if they have too much force on it. We ask anglers to let us know if there is a breakage and we will replace it.

If it hadn't been so very warm and sunny at the start of the week I think we would have caught more.

Details of your catches:
25 carp caught. Two 50’s and six 40’s rest were 30’s (pastys)

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Boilie over boilie. No bait boat and no spod oooh la la

Were the facilities what you expected?
Yea
Were you happy with them?
Yes
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
No
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes

General comments:
Poor lake management. Lazy owner leaving snags in water which is damaging hooked fish. Too many over hanging trees on pegs. Could be a great venue if it had a proper owner.

*Angling Lines note* We will discuss the snags with the owner as to where they are a potential danger to the fish. Although we do stress that this is definitely a lake that is left quite wild and natural so will not suit everyone.

Holiday date:
Sat 8th Jul to Sat 15th Jul 2017
Name of customer:
Gary Greig
Number of anglers:
5
Details of your catches:
8 carp to 43lb. Cats to 20lb & Sturgeon to 125lb.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Beds of boilie for carp or pellet/groundbait/particle for cats/sturgeon. 20kg+ boilie per anger per week minimum. Finding gravel spots is some swims essential, in most others, fishing to the silt is perfectly good. The fish follow the wind, so multiple moves between swims may be in order too.

Were the facilities what you expected?
Yes - been several times prior, so knew what to expect.
Were you happy with them?
Yes

Holiday date:
Sat 3rd Jun to Sat 10th Jun 2017
Name of customer:
Guy Hamilton
Number of anglers:
3
Details of your catches:
Mirrors ranging from 30 to 37lb
Cats ranging from 5 to 40lb
Heavy heavy fighters all of them, lost more than we caught to be honest!

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
We all fished pop ups, using spicey bottom baits with lighter coloured half pop ups. Parti blend kept the cats away and kept the carp interested, no open water fishing was really done, all tight on the margins was our best producer .

I would most definitely hire a boat and go out and find the gravel spots , I was lucky enough to find two that were only the size of bin lids tight under the trees and they produced for me.


Were the facilities what you expected?
Facilities were spot on, shower was hot, fridge was cold and the charge up points would still charge phone and boat batteries, and the toilet, well the toilet was a toilet!!!
Were you happy with them?
Absolutely made up with them!! The prices weren't the Hilton prices, and I thought you got more for your money .
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Already have done!
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes

General comments:
Frank the bailiff made our week, he was funny cracking jokes with us all and would tell us where to try and what to try, we really couldn't of had a nicer bloke around us, he wouldn't come near us unless we asked for him and his experience and knowledge of the lake was immense and unbeatable.

All in all we couldn't of asked for a better week away , 10 out of 10 isn't enough to describe Vaumigny lake



Holiday date:

Name of customer:
Matthew Morgan
Number of anglers:
2
Details of your catches:
It was a tough week as fish were spawning. I had 4 carp to 37.08, 5 catfish to 25 and a 53lb sturgeon. Other swims done very well.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Start of the week pink pop ups were the way. When the weather changed they seemed to want food a bit more so i fished double boilie over bed of boilie.

Were the facilities what you expected?
Yes
Were you happy with them?
Yes
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
I would definitely. But they need to be aware its very very snaggy and alot of fish get lost.

Would you recommend our services to a friend?
I have been away with angling lines before and will again. Outstanding friendly service from people who really do know there stuff. 10 out of 10

General comments:
I knew the lake was a challenge and thats what I got. I'll be back for sure.

Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Definitely but I would also like to keep it secret for myself
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Angling lines were excellent, we had to come home a day early and they couldn't have been more helpful changing our ferry times. I have used them many times before and will continue to use them in the future
