General comments:
First of all we would like thank Debbie for the food (and her friend for a couple of days) as it was exceptional. thank you John for the service with a smile, I honestly could be soaking and blanking but he would still make you laugh every day. In regards to the fishing it isn’t easy, don’t expect to turn up and fish on a bed of bait and sit back and wait.You need to work for every bite and constantly adapt to the forever changing situations. Mark is brilliant and will give you advice, however as much as his tactics will help with a bite it won’t guarantee it.

We used many different tactics that caught from using Villefond rig over particle to zig fishing with foam to scattered bailie approach.

The carp play hard but the reward is fantastic. The carp are in lovely condition with a good stock of 30,s 40,s and the odd 50,s on the bank.

Thank you Mark Debbie and John

Details of your catches:
Blanked unfortunately. The fish just weren’t at it. No shows. Hadn’t woken up from winter and just weren’t interested. In over 30 years of carp fishing I haven’t been beaten up so much by a lake, but Villefond bruised me !

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
I tried everything. Spent some time with Mark and tinkered with things. Was trying things that nobody else probably has and just couldn’t get a proper pick up let alone a run. Tried everything from zig to wafter to critically balanced to naturals to fake to boilie. That’s fishing !

Were the facilities what you expected?
Yes, everything that you need. Clean and hot water.
Debbie’s food is great 👍 best let your belt out a couple of notches when you get home ! Puddings were great too. Great swims and well maintained.
Were you happy with them?
Yes
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Yes and I will be returning next year as I won’t let this lake beat me up that much without a rematch !
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes always do

General comments:
Mark, Debbie and John are great hosts. Mark really tried but I just caught it wrong and they weren’t having any of it. Debbie’s food is great. John is a top top guy ! Great chats and laughs and always had a story to share. Brilliant people and great lake.
Feel a bit bruised but, Arnie, I’ll be back 😉
