Brief details of your catches
We fished early morning to late evening sessions as the weather was not too hot, and occasional rain.was never severe. we all caught every day, which was a first, but no pb's on this occasion.but hey 79 fish for a total weight of 1401 lbs can't be bad. Best fish in each species were: grassy's 20 lb, commons 24.5 lb, mirrors 32 lbs.
What did you find were the best tactics/baits?
We tried mainly a range of bottom baits such as Alans boilies, cell and pellet, and they all worked equally well. Bread on the top and stalking also caught.
Were the facilities what you expected?
All I can say is that we have stayed at some great accommodation in 18 years of fishing in France. Alans and Jills place is by far THE BEST. Don't be afraid to take non fishing partners lads, they won't be disappointed.

Thanks to Alan and Gill, you keep a wonderful lake and gite, Dudley & George are gorgeous & full of fun. The lake is very pretty with many different features to fish to, the banks are flat with plenty of room for bivvys. The fish had just finished spawning and the weather was very up and down but we still manage to land a fair few fish, the biggest being 33lb taken off the top by Bernie along with a nice Grass Carp. It was Adams first time fishing in France and he broke his PB a couple of times. The fishing picked up towards the end of the week and on the last day Adam and Brian were landing alot of fish. Unfortunately it was not my year & I couldn't get passed 18lb (Julia) but thoroughly enjoyed it and we are planning our return next year.

Beautiful lake with superb accomodation, this venue is the best we have been to. Everything you need, a home from home. Fishing started slowly, due to fish spawning the week before, but still managed to entice some nice 20lb+ fish to the net. Things picked up during the week , but the weather was all over the place, sunny, windy , rain, temperature up and down with frost some nights. When the weather warmed up towards the end of the week Bernie tried some surface fishing, and had a 33lb 4oz Common, a 30lb 6oz Mirror and a 23lb 12oz Grass Carp, all PB's for surface fishing, Brian caught some nice fish to 26lb 7oz, and Adam beat his PB with a mirror of 24lb 11oz. All managed to catch numerous 20's but lost some good fish also. Thank you Alan and Jill for making our stay very pleasant and enjoyable you were great hosts. It will be a plasure to come back next year for 2 weeks. See you soon. Bernie, Brian, Adam, Julie & Mrs Bernie.

A truly wonderful week of relaxing fishing at Les Basses Berthieres on our first visit to this venue. Having been welcomed by Dudley & George, we were delighted to meet both Alan and Jill who throughout our stay proved to be the most attentive of hosts and full of advice and guidance. The accommodation is stunning and by far the best we have enjoyed on our various ventures to France. The lake offers a number of features and with the generous bank space, plenty of room to either set up a bivvie or be more mobile. \unfortunately, we picked a week when the fish decided to spawn and despite their constant thrashing in the shallows, we were still able to catch a few reasonable specimens. The larger fish proved impossible but we consistently caught fish in the upper twenties using Alans' boilies. Withe the help of Alans' somewhat temperamental bait boat, we were able to place bait under the trees near the island and this proved a highly productive area with both commons and mirrors regularly coming to the net. Best fish of the week was a 25.5lb mirror and a 22lb common. Also had a pristine 20lb grass carp. Amazingly, hooked two of the smallest pike you will ever see on boilies, which caused much amusement. We would strongly recommend this venue. The promise of larger fish has certainly whetted our appetite to return in 2016 and Alan has a programme of stocking that will see even more 30lb+ carp added shortly. We look forward to seeing these on the bank in the years ahead

Great accomodation, Alan & Jill fantastic hosts, could not do more. Shame the weather slowed the fishing down at times, need to come back for the bigger ones that got away. Even so still managed around 50- 60 fish for the week, including a nice looking Common of 28lb 5oz, Mirrors of 29lb 13oz,, 28lb 9oz, 26lb 11oz, 3 between 24lb - 25lb and numerous 20lb+ fish We enjoyed the fishing very much, and enjoyed a very relaxing stay.it was just what we needed to recharge our batteries. You have a great lake in wonderfull surroundings, and some very hard fighting fish, long may it continue. Thank you once again, hope to see you again soon.

Back again for 3rd visit, as usual everything nice, clean and tidy, normal standard. Fishing started a bit slow but Elaine soon caught some nice fish to upper 20's. Picked up a bit as week went on, but weather a bit indifferent. Fish started coming on a bit more and Elaine banked a nice 32lb Mirror, Richard eventually found some fish and had a nice Common of 25lb along with a few 20's. About 30+ fish caught for the week so not too bad as wether not very settlesd.. Thanks once again Jill & Alan, see you next year.

LBB regulars Eddie & Tom returned for their 3rd year running, for some quality carp fishing and peace and quite . Fishing got off to a good start with fish to mid 20's gracing the bank. As the week went on, fish in the 20lb- 25lb came at a steady pace to keep a constant bend in their rods . Using the bait boat to reach the over hanging trees was the best tactic. About 30 - 40 fish landed during the week with just daytime fishing. Best fish was a nice 28lb 6oz Mirror, and a few decent fish lost. Accomodation up to it's fantastic very high standard, look forward to seeing you next year, thank you Jill & Alan

Far better than expected, as guests we were treated as royalty. Been fishing in France for over 30 years and have been to the best but this tops them all even though the big ones got away. Only fished part time and no night fishing. Had a very large carp pull off twice
