Really enjoyable to be back at Lac de Laneuville. Ross and Peter still as helpfull and friendly as ever. Accommodation spot on which keeps my wife happy too. Fishing quite difficult this year possibly due to very unsettled weather. Like a lot of French lakes this year there is a real problem with weed growth.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Ross , Peter , Helen , Sam & Jo for their warm hospitality at our recent visit to their fabulous venue ... We were made to feel totally relaxed from the moment we arrived .. The facilities met all our expectations and more , a lot of thought has been given to cater for everybody's needs wether angling or not . Ross and Peter gave me some great advice on the best spots to fish to so after following their advice I was rewarded with a capture in less than an hour of my rods being in the water . The weather was unsettled for a couple of days but once the temperature stabilised the fish started to feed again resulting in me capturing six fish in less than 24 hours . All in all a very relaxing week at a great venue with picturesque surroundings .. Great hosts that make you feel part of the family from the moment you arrive until the moment you leave .. Lac de Laneuville is a venue we would recommend to kick back , relax and enjoy some great fishing ...

Only two fish caught, both on first day before it got ridiculously hot. Both commons, one of 35-12 and the other at 39-02.

Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes, everything went really smoothly.
Really enjoyed our week at Lac de Laneuville and my wife thought that the accommodation was amongst the nicest that we have stayed in over years of visiting France. Peter was really helpfull even fixing a minor problem with my car, but even he was not able to influence the weather which was scorching hot and seriously affected the fishing. I feel that there is unfinished business at Lac de Laneuville that will require a return visit in the future.

What did you find were the best tactics/baits?
Would have followed the wind more and back leaded where possible to improve our catch but with total age of 215 years between the three of us, this is now not so easy. Boilies would I think be best bet.

12 Carp ( 5 Common & 7 Mirror ) caught between 3 Anglers weighing 24ib - 36lb plus a catfish 36 lb. Most afternoon quiet with fish coming out early evening and mid morning. Only two fish through the night despite all fishing 24/7.
What did you find were the best tactics/baits?
Fishing tight to the margins and the islands. Predominantly used boilies which proved worthwhile.

Lac de Laneuville For many years I have been fishing in France. I have fished drive and survive ,and all manner of different lakes with accommodation. This year I fished Lac de Laneuville for the first time, and as a result of that I would like to make a few comments. Firstly the accommodation is first class, everything you could need is provided and it is all kept in a wonderful condition. There is a separate facility to remove your wet clothes etc before entering the main area therefore making it easy to keep clean. The accommodation looks out over the Lake with stunning views. The lake itself has been managed correctly (IMO). It looks and feels completely natural. Every fish that we caught was in tip top condition. There are some real good fish in the lake with 40s coming out almost on a weekly basis, and a chance of larger fish to boot. The rules are simple and not draconian .and will in no way cramp your style. The hosts are some of the best people you could wish to meet. They welcome you to the facility, offer any advice that you wish to have and then basically leave you alone to get on with it . Should you have any problems they will do all they can to accommodate you and help. Terrific family business. If you are thinking of this type of fishing holiday then be sure you will not do better than Lac de Laneuville, don’t think about it, just book it . Jeff ,Norma and Dennis Hildon

Fishing a little slow due unusually hot temperatures which has led to early spawning, this may have been frustrating at other venues but seeing the fish that were crashing about and the condition they were in made up our minds to return later in the year, my advise is to book this venue asap, cracking lake and wonderfull people, one last peice of advise if booking let Marley have a sausage at breakfast. many thanks Ross

Absolutuley Ross & Pete were a great help, placing baits and tactics and also very good company.
Clear blue skies during the day and bright moonlight nights without wind made the fishing slow. However breaking my personal best with all four fish made me extremely happy. With better conditions I'm sure I would of caught more. Fish are in fantastic condition and with beautiful surroundings. You can't ask more for a great fishing holiday.

Four carp 22lb 25lb 27lb 32lb\r\nThree cats all under 4lb
What did you find were the best tactics/baits?
The fishing was very hard as shown by the catches, no matter what was tried it produced very little, even the owners took baits out, but without success. We tried everything we could think of, light baiting, heavy baiting, pop ups, fresh baits maize, shelf life baits and others which I cannot recall. We fished in open water, close to islands near bank far bank, on the shelf with very little success. Paul fished three nights and blanked on all three, not even a run.
Were the facilities what you expected?
The accommodation was better than expected. The venue was as described and the photos on the internet reflected this, it was clean, very well equipped and ready for use on our arrival.
Were you happy with them?
We all were happy with the accommodation this could not be faulted, but the fishing does come first on a fishing holiday and this did not meet our expectations as other feedbacks showed the lake to be producing excellent catches including very large cats and PBs
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
I could recommend this to a friend, but not for the fishing. The week we had the fishing does not reflect others who had previously been. It would be for the tranquillity and peace and quiet of the lake.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes, tickets arrived well in time, the company was easy to contact, they arranged everything, they could not have been more helpful, and nothing was too much trouble for CCFH
Overall none of us could fault the accommodation, but the fishing was very disappointing, with two of us only getting four carp out, and no runs were missed. We have our views on why the fishing did not equal others at this venue, and we all think it may have been the virtually non stop rain we had for the first 5 days, or maybe the sheer volumes of bait that went into the lake the week prior. To think a lake that produced such good catches all year to go down to this may take some believing, but many hours and days were spent on the lakeside trying everything we knew trying to catch the carp.
