“A fantastic first trip to France”

Last week Lillybelle welcomed team Ashima’s Emily Blake and Martin Earlam. A very productive week was had by both anglers, but Emily took all honours with most fish banked and biggest fish of the week too. To cap it all Emily also broke our current ladies record not once but twice, with a new pb and record of 36lb 12oz and then topped that with a new pb and ladies record of 38lb 8 oz. You can see their feedback below…

General comments: “A fantastic first trip to France”. Lillybelle was an excellent venue for my first fishing holiday to France. Martin has been to France several times before, so to catch more fish than him was a fantastic experience. Richard looked after every need and was great company. The lake has so much to offer, lots of different features to fish too and some absolutely stunning carp. Every fish that graced the bank was a pleasure. Thank you to Richard and Angling lines for a wonderfull and memorable trip.
