Maison Verre - first review

thanks for a brilliant weeks fishing at your lake. After 10 years we were a little apprehensive of what the lake would now be like but after 5mins of arriving any apprehensions soon vanished.

The overhaul of the house is unrecognisable from what it used to be and the addition of the veranda/patio area is superb! As for the lake, it was brilliant. It’s now much more open and accessible and made it feel much more sociable from our perspective, which was good as above all else it was our holiday. The ease of which you could set up your main swims then take a rod to other parts of the lake if you fancied a few hours change was great and no matter where you cast, margins or open water, single hook bait or pva also, we were almost guaranteed a bite each time.

We almost hit the 50 mark for the week (that’s fish photoed) but happy to settle for 49, with the last one coming out the morning of our last day, being also the largest carp of the week. This was achieved not fishing hard at all and for the most part with just one rod out each and no overnight fishing.

I think I can speak for the others in saying it was probably our best weeks fishing in France to date. Very relaxing and enjoyable and I shouldn’t be surprised to see us booking up for next year sometime soon.
