Blog Post Image Blog Post Image Blog Post Image Blog Post Image

 Returning for the second time this year for a short 5 day holiday, Sean and John, along with 1st timer Liam, banked a total of 32 carp which included 4 x 30’s to include a cracking 39lb 2oz mirror for John. With the weather being a bit up and down, they worked hard to achieve this, banking a few out of the Museum and Billy’s Mates swims through stalking during the day. Top angling guys!! 🙂 See you next year.

 So since we took ownership the lake has been fishing its socks off.  One week in September saw one angler Rob land 20 carp 5 of which were over 40lb. The same week saw Odd scale out at 62lbs.

Personal bests have been beaten then beaten again... and again.

Maison Verre - Oswell party 11/08/18

Blog Post Image Blog Post Image Blog Post Image Blog Post Image

 Had a great week at a lovely venue.

Thank you very much.

Need to give ourselves a few weeks to get sorted but the general consensus is that we would like to return next year.

Please find a few photos attached, I will send you over a few more and a catch report later in the week.

Biggest fish were a 31lb sturgeon, and a 31lb carp.

We named the 20lb sturgeon Steve as he kept hammering one of our party (steve) and I think he even came out 3 times in one day.

House is amazing, location brilliant and it was perfect for the boys.

Thanks again.

Maison Verre - Calladine 8/9/18

Blog Post Image Blog Post Image Blog Post Image Blog Post Image

Phil and his wife have fished at a number of venues in France in the last 10 years. They went as a couple with Phil only fishing in the days along with sight seeing trips to Vitre which they reported as being stunning., They even stayed on for a meal, something they never normally do on visit to a town.

Phil was concerned about his low sports car making it to the site, but our all new stone drive way did the trick!

The couple wanted a relaxing 'quality stay' and from the review we ticked all the boxes. having only opened half way through 2018 we want people to appreciate the quality on offer and the following reivew should ensure this:

"Sad to say just back from EMV.Could have stayed longer but someone else is going to enjoy the stunning property and beautiful lake setting.

Everything you could wish for is on the site. Managed to land 19 carp to 33 lb and 2 sturgeon to 32.Didn't fish nights and visited local sites so the fishing is relatively straightforward.

Used bait boat to get under overhanging bushes but clipped up and fished to margins when possible.Would recommend using 20 mm boilies to attract the larger fish and house pellets to feed.

The accommodation is first class with open plan layout and fabulous views over the pretty lake.

Thanks to all concerned.

Phil and Jan"

Lac du Val - Four Days Madness

Blog Post Image Blog Post Image Blog Post Image Blog Post Image

 John and Tom arrived at Lac du Val for a short 4 days holiday, this being their 1st visit to our venue. Their expectations were mixed as this was not a typical water that they have been used to fishing in France. A passing comment on arrival was being happy with approx 15 fish on the bank for their duration with us. 96 hours passed with run after screaming run, which resulted in 55 fish on the bank between them !!!!! This included 9 x 30’s to 35lb 8 oz and 31 x 20’s to 29lb 10oz with a total poundage of 1292lb !!!!! It’s safe to say they went home extremely happy and have vowed to return at a future date.
Top angling guys. It was a real pleasure meeting you both and sharing in your fishing experience with us. 🙂
