Brief details of your catches
2 x Catfish -35lbs and 41lb 04oz 2 x mirror carp- 25lb 08oz and 19lb 04 oz 1 x sturgeon- 10lb 10oz
What did you find were the best tactics/baits?
Pellets fished over smaller pellets but it was hard work.
Were the facilities what you expected?
Surprised at the quality of the accommodation, disappointed with the water quality of the lake. (Owners note: Thank you for your feedback, water quality has been tested and is good, so no threat to the fish. Sorry for your experience, it could have been the very hot weather - but at least everything appears healthy and the fish are feeding, previous week 18 fish were caught and no mention of weed/smell)
Were you happy with them?
Accommodation yes,lake no.
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Only after work is done on the lake. (Owners note: Thank you for your feedback, water quality has been tested and is good, so no threat to the fish. Sorry for your experience, it could have been the very hot weather - but at least everything appears healthy and the fish are feeding, previous week 18 fish were caught and no mention of weed/smell)
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Most definately.
The accommodation was superb.We have spent 34 weeks over the years, fishing in France and this accommodatio is up there with the best of them. However, I am concerned about the quality of the water in the lake, which smelt nasty and had a lot of dead and black weed, both floating on top and on the bottom. (Owners note: Thank you for your feedback, water quality has been tested and is good, so no threat to the fish. Sorry for your experience, it could have been the very hot weather - but at least everything appears healthy and the fish are feeding, previous week 18 fish were caught and no mention of weed/smell) Anyone going to the Firs will need a bait boat because only the house swim has sufficient room to cast baits in. Some tree pruning is in order. Also, it would have been good to have been able to meet the bailiff to seek advice but we saw no one all week.
