Brief details of your catches
The catches were few and far between it seemed that all anglers that were fishing the same week experienced very low quantities of fish being caught. We lost 15 fish between us as they were soft hookers and seemed to spit the hook out even though you had them on.
What did you find were the best tactics/baits?
We tried all tactics to get the fish on the feed but not a lot of interest. We used the bait that was supplied with the fishery.
Were the facilities what you expected?
The facilities were of high quality clean and well looked after. We had the Carpers Cabin for the week and that had plenty of room for storing our tackle and also was available to sleep 3 people comfortably. Ben the bailiff told us that they are updating the cabin for next year with modern décor and furniture so that will make it even more pleasurable to return.
Were you happy with them?
We had no issues about any of the facilities that were provided.
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Yes we would recommend to friends.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes we would definitely recommend you as your services were of first class no hiccups or problems everything was just right from the time we left Dover and returned to Dover a week later. The itinerary that was sent to us prior to leaving was 100% with map, co-ordinates, information and a full information of what to do and what not to do.
The venue that we chose for our fishing holiday was a very scenic lake in a lovely part of France

Stunning looking lake that is close to the local village which makes a pop to the supermarket an easy drive. We had a few discrepancies with prices, when we went to pay for our bait prices were higher than that shown on the carp france website, got charged 20 euros for bait when it's listed as 18 on the carp france website, we also only got half the pellet we pre-ordered.

Poor week I lost two large fish that i could not stop and only had one cat, weight not worth putting down. Other two had 5 fish between them largest 44lb 12oz.
What did you find were the best tactics/baits?

Yes and no would not recomend the food package and would warn about one of the baliffs, we have been fishing in France for nearly 10 years and have never had a problem untill this lake which left us a little disapointed.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes
Lovely lake, nice settings and well looked after. One of the baliffs was very unpolite and did not deal with people very well at all but the other two were good. Food package not worth the money on conparison with others that we have had in the past at other lakes. Facilities were good but the lodge we had would have been better if it had had its own toilet and shower, but we knew it didn't before we went but that would have made better and perhaps would be a good inprovment in the future for them to do.

venue was good, bailiffs were good, facilities were good, the only issue was the weed. From the margin, the weed went 40 to 50 yards out. Thick rubbery stuff, that made landing fish a nightmare. the weed went right to the surface, we lost more fish than we landed. I would definately go back if the weed issue was sorted out.

mirror 30.10, sturgeon 64 & 62.09 lost 4 fish, one felt like a real big one.
What did you find were the best tactics/baits?
i had mine on maple 8 with glow in the dark sweetcorn and that is what all of my runs were on. Although the owner thinks that the fish may be getting ready to spawn so not many fish were coming out and the ones that did were only over small beds of bait, mainly pellets.

probably not
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
not sure
the lake is very picturesque and the pegs are very well set out. the shop and food is very expenses so we didnt use them. and on swim 5 there is not much water to fish to as the owner refuses to cut back the left hand side tree. Sam the bailiff was very helpfull. not much to say about mark though.

The Lake is amazing, beautiful surroundings and wildlife. Many signs of big fish crashing all over the place especially at night. Modern, clean facilities etc. Two of us stayed here for the weekend and apart from one night when everybody on the lake failed to catch we were unlucky not to catch. The swim to the left of us had a 50lb carp on our last night and other swims had a total of two 30 + carp throughout the weekend. Thanks and regards Adam Fautley
