Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Stick to same spots keep feeding and the fish will turn up.
Can’t give my bait and tactics away as I’m back in September for 2 weeks and would like it to still work....
But if you are coming and scared of snags don’t fish to them all my fish came from open water.
Also go big on lines I used 23lb fox Exocet on my rods n 20lb on jacks there are gravel bars which cut through 12-18lb very easy.

Were the facilities what you expected?
I came in October fished peg 8 so have seen the changes. Changes to the pegs look good opened some up and dug out some steeper pegs to make easier access to your rods and land fish. Removed several big trees and snags which must have taken some time and effort.
The shower has changed slightly but still not used in 2 visits stick to baby wipes as most places I fish in UK have no showers anyway.
The toilet ,fridge ,freezer and electric point are all good they work and are clean.
Were you happy with them?
Very happy I knew what to expect
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
I do this is my favourite lake I have fished 3 in France and loads in UK but none come anywhere near this even when I visited in October only caught 2 carp biggest 39lb but I caught my first ever catfish at 73lb and another 11 from 35lb - 68lb so you don’t know what your going to catch on the next run.
Frank the bailiff is a top bloke.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Again I do when letting people know where I’ve been what I’ve caught who I’ve booked through.

General comments:
This was my best week ever in fishing (34 years) but didn’t start that way in the build up 2 weeks before.
I arranged this trip with me my mate Pete who’s 73 always course fished never been carping so was coming as non- angler for a holiday , Jack my son who’s 19 not been fishing with me for 8 years because carp fishing’s boring???? Look at his face on pics think he may like carp fishing now. We were all going to be on peg 1.
And another mate who was unable to come at last minute was meant to fish peg 2
So finding a replacement wasn’t easy last minute so Jacks mate Phil came 18 years old never fished before and he and jack fished peg 2 me on peg 1.
All the people who I asked if they wanted a free holiday but couldn’t make it all said they wish the had come once I started sending pics....
Angling lines where brilliant at changing the details of who was going.

Fishmeal boillies. Pellets. Bait boat to baited area.

Had a good time. Went for Sturgeon and was not disappointed. There are snaggy margins around the lake as in description. Some people lost fish.. Go prepared with heavy mono mainline.

Name of customer:
Paul Heaton
Number of anglers:

Details of your catches:
Paul - carp 35lb 32lb mirrors 23lb common
Cats 51lb 35lb
Richard 35lb cat

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Weather was ridiculously hot, middle of heatwave so was expecting the fishing to be hard going and it was, that being said tight to the island produced plenty of action but due to the snags we lost as many as we landed. Fished pop ups over pellet/boilie/particle mix, but only a handful, same in open water but four times as much, this is where we caught the cats. You will need a bait boat.

Were the facilities what you expected?
Very bacis as stated
Were you happy with them?
Yes
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
If you want wild fishing with the chance of a massive fish this is the place for you, but not for an inexperienced angler, watch the vid first. We loved it but it's not for everyone
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Angling lines are top notch, enough said -5 stars.

General comments:
My advice if there's two of you fish peg one. But there's a factory across the road that makes factory noises, and they had a rave Friday night! 😀 But didn't bother us, all in all great trip, will definitely return.

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.

General comments:
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.

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
