Blog Post Image

Regular visitor Amy Mower from Sudbury, Suffolk, has smashed the Ladies Record Wels' from Orchard Lake with a great fish of 78lb 8oz.
This beats the previous record held by Shelly Withers at 70lb 8oz, who took the record off her daughter Carla by just 8ozs!
Well done Amy, over to you Shelly and Carla!

Birch Lake - Seventy is the magic number

Blog Post Image Blog Post Image Blog Post Image

Jonathon Johnson targeted the cats of Birch Lake last week and was rewarded with three over 70lb at 71lb, 72lb and 78lbs.

Using a variety of pellets over big halibuts was the successful bait.

Orchard Lake - A Ten Year Recommendation!

Interesting feedback from Ben Atherton from Wigan who has visited the Breton lakes as a man and as a young boy...
Ben writes: "Been coming here since I was 11 for ten years now, enjoyed every single week of it. Camera quality seems to have improved massively since 🤣"

Birch Lake - Birch Session by Alex Denzey

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

 A very wet few days on Birch but it didn't put us or the fish off.

Fish were caught from all swims, carp mainly in the shallows and middle swim and the cats down in the snags at the deeper end.

Plenty banked and a few lost. A PB cat of 45lb and PB Grassy of 26lb for Rachel. And a PB cat of 78lb for me and although it's not my largest carp ever banked I have a new common PB of 41lb.

Unfortunately our trip was cut short with a family emergency but we loved our stay. Paul was a great host and we will be back.

Blog Post Image Blog Post Image Blog Post Image

 Father and son duo Lee and Alfie, along with family friend Richard finished off their weeks holiday with a total of 35 fish on the bank, dropping another 13 along the way!!! These included a 40lb plus lump each for themselves, with Richard breaking his PB 4 times consecutively, but Alfie stealing the limelight, nailing our newly stocked ghostie, ➡️ "Casper" ⬅️, one of his target fish for the week. So to summarise the weeks catch, 3 x 40's to 45lb 8oz, 5 x 30's to 38lb, 22 x 20's to 29lb 6oz and 5 high doubles 🙌💯💥🎣. Happy days had by all. It was a real pleasure meeting you guys. And thank you for choosing Lac du Val for those dreams to realize. Tight lines!!!

Lac du Val - Steve & Aidan Landed Their New PB's

Blog Post Image Blog Post Image

 It's just getting better and better here at ➡️ “Lac du Val” ⬅️ for the anglers this season.

New first time guests for us, Aidan Jones and Stephen Watson have banked a total of 19 fish between them.

Aidan got off to a flying start, banking 4 fish in his first 24 hrs, and then settled down to a steady catch rate, leaving it to the last 24 hrs to break his PB with a cracking common hitting the scales at an impressive 35lb 1oz

Steve had a slow start to the week but his patience paid off, which produced not one but 3 Pb's for him, getting bigger and bigger until he nailed 👉"Cailiñ"👈, one of our resident big mirror's at 47lb 12oz !!!

Well done guys 👍🙌💥💯🎣✅ Tight lines!!
