General comments:
Food package was excellent, lovely lake but really hard fishing. John was very helpful and feel sorry for him cause he felt bad that we didnt catch. The lake has alot of potential and with some time and effort in making the swims better this lake could be something special. Unfortunately mark wasnt helpful, only saw him for 20mins on the first day with a breif tour then another 10mins to show us a rig he uses but proved to be no good.

Chris 24lb common 14lb common

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Spinner D rig hinged stiff on running leads with back leads, bait mainline hybrid and Villefond particle mix. Light loose feed boilies onto a large area then tighten up spot once fish are feeding.

Pre bait margin spots for a few days with particle then introduce boilies after again once fish are feeding on the spot. Alternate rigs to keep fish guessing, these fish are rig shy and soon wise up to a method.

Keep a eye out for feeding fish during the day (fizzing) and try out new areas if not catching on a spot. *stick to spots once catching. Lightly feed at first.

Were the facilities what you expected?
Yes. Better
Were you happy with them?
Yes. Very happy with the facilities they were more than adequate
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Yes. Amazing venue, amazing owners and everything that you do to help people put fish on the bank and the time and care you spend with everyone which I have never had anywhere else I’ve ever been, that’s why we keep coming back to you guys, and I will continue to come back.

Also that the fish are in great condition, well looked after and have amazing fish care. And the food that you guys provide is out of this world.

I would also recommend The venue to anyone 🎣🎣🎣🎣

General comments:
*Angling Lines note* Both Mark and John are bailiffs on the venue. There was no disinterest, unfortunately Mark was working away for some of the week, however John was down at the lake every day. We are sorry you felt that not enough interest was shown and we do urge anglers also to let Mark or John know if they have any queries whilst at the lake - they are very happy to help.


Holiday date:
Sat 28th Sep to Sat 5th Oct 2019
Name of customer:
Paul Griffiths
Number of anglers:
1
Details of your catches:
I had 4 fish in the first four days, (44.08 m) (27lb c )
big sturgeon at (63.08 lb), peg 8.




Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
I used a pop of corn on mainline cell, a free running lead system (3 oz lead) and see through silicon boom. Lead camouflaged as gravel.

There is a thing at Villefond called the 'Villefond three beeps '- These carp are very clever, they mouth it a little bit then a bit more and if they feel anything at all they drop it .
In order to combat that I used a size 8 hook ( smaller than i'd normally use and also added maize and sweetcorn on the hair down to the hook.

I used single baits and catapulted a few around. they don't seem to respond to heavy baiting here.

Arnold came out to another of the group on handmade onion boilies. We think it was a record but the angler who caught it had only 60lb scales and he's normally in the high 70's.
So unfortunately we didn't get the exact weight.

Were the facilities what you expected?
Yes. Good. We had an issue one or two days but the batteries were charged up at the house and John made a special trip down to make sure I had a charger for my phone. They could not do enough for us and those special little kindnesses meant a lot!
Were you happy with them?
Yes, the guys at Villefond are the best! Food was great too and always arrived bang on time. Highly recommended.
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Yes, definitely. You can't sit back and not fish, it needs some thought and effort but I was very happy. The sounds and visuals of amazing nature are all around the lake. Its well worth stopping & breathing it all in. It gives a real sense of well being. Top marks.

General comments:
Happy with the fishing and the welcome and the owners were excellent, left to get on with our fishing and on the end of the phone if needed.
Well spaced swims giving plenty of room to fish. Fish condition was pretty good all round. Tidy fishery all round.
A lot more smaller carp in there than expected/but looks good for the future.
Swims could do with a little work to make things easier and safer.

*Note from owners*
Thank you for your feedback, we will be working on the swims over the course of the winter.

The swims need a bit of tlc if you struggle to bend down swims 5 and 6 are quite high up from the wate,r could do with platforms to make netting and lifting fish easier.

General comments:
The only critism and it has no bearing on the owners of Villefond. We could have done with a closer ferry port. The drive was exhausting.

I was told on the phone the dearest toll wad €25.00. It was actually €94.00 luckily we had enough money to cover the unexpected expenditure. Angling lines knew we were taking two vans over and the sizes.
I suggest Angling lines do more research.

*Angling Lines note* Thank you for your feedback and we are very sorry if you were advised this, we would usually direct customers to a website such as ViaMichelin where you can put your route and vehicle details it - it then gives you an estimation of tolls and fuel.
