Unfortunately we had a freak week weather wise. It rained almost continuously for the whole week and the fishing reflected the poor weather. Nikki and Julian are great hosts and were really sympathetic too us but obviously there was nothing more they could have done..

Brief details of your catches
The weather tried its best to beat us but we stil managed to catch 21 fish in total. Including 7 high thirties (all mirrors between 34.4 and 38lb) . The rest were 20+ mirrors except 4 Commons to 28.8.
What did you find were the best tactics/baits?
all baits / boilies seemed to work to 3 lilly patches and far margins
Were the facilities what you expected?
Yes - everything we needed was there. It was a really great that Nikki visited each day to make sure all ok. Never too rushed - keen to make sure we had everyting we needed together with bringing more bait, freezer blocks etc. The fresh bread each day was also most welcome - more time for fishing!

yes - very much so

A wonderful week - really lovely lake, great setting, fantastic hosts in Nikki and Julian. And of course some terrific fish.

Brothers Roy and Steve's aim was to catch a 20lb+ Carp. They didn't leave disappointed. Their comments were " Thanks Nikki & Julian for a great week, thanks for the great hospitality and the use of your fabulous pool.!!!"

Brief details of your catches
Fished 5 night and caught 30 Carp including 10 x 30's and 19 x 20's and 19lb. All fish were in pristine condition and fought like demons.
What did you find were the best tactics/baits?
The fish responded well to plenty of bait, I used cooked maize and a hybrid of Cell/Activ8 boillie. Keep the bait going in and the fish will keep on feeding.
Were the facilities what you expected?
Very impressed with the work Julian & Nikki had done, my 9 year old son Adam kept himself amused playing in the surrounding forest. The Lodge is ideally placed very near to the lake and is very well equipped with all you would need and very clean.
Were you happy with them?
Very happy am returning next year.
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Most definately
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes
I normally fish Birch Pool Retreat but thought I'd try Julian & Nikki's new venue this year and I certainly wasn't disappointed.
