Brief details of your catches
Only really fished a few hours each morning, catching in excess of 20 hard fighting carp all in the low 20’s. great fun to be had with a float rod catching the silvers. Afternoons were spent out and about or enjoying the pool due to the hot weather.
What did you find were the best tactics/baits?
Found the pineapple boilies caught the most fish although also caught on Pacific tuna and source boilies too. Some deep silt in places so found helicopter rigs did very well keeping bait above the silt.
Were the facilities what you expected?
Mobile home was very well equipped with everything needed for our stay. Plenty of hot water and an added bonus of fresh eggs from the on site chickens. Loads of space on site for kids to play and all behind a closed gate so no real need to keep to close an eye on them. Two very friendly donkeys on site, a must for anyone looking to bring the family.
Were you happy with them?
Very happy with everything
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful break away, especially if you plan on bringing children. Expect to catch plenty of fish.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
As always another great week at yet another great venue.hassle free booking and convenient payments.
A fantastic venue, great facilities for the kids, pool and play area was a great break from fishing. Couldn’t wish for better hosts, Andy,Francesca and family were on hand for any of our needs and made our stay a very pleasurable experience. If your looking for a peaceful area to relax with the family and catch some lovely looking fish then look no further.

Brief details of your catches
93 Carp caught in total, over 30 slipped the hook and were lost. Carp caught up to 28lb 11oz. most were around the 10lb to 18lb mark. Very hot weather, 33 to 38 degrees each day. A great weeks fishing, lovely venue and great hosts. A no show from the sturgeon this week which was a shame. A very enjoyable weeks fishing holiday
What did you find were the best tactics/baits?
Only fished days and used 2 rods each. As long as you fish tight to the margins you get the bites. Any more than 3 feet away the bites reduce dramatically. Highly recommend you take a bait boat with you for placing your rigs in margins and under trees. The fish ate anything that was placed on the hair-rig (except luncheon meat & pop-ups) no matter of size, colour, quality or manufacturer (don’t be fooled by company marketing) we tried Zigs for a day or two, but this didn’t produce any bites
Were the facilities what you expected?
Yes, we normally just bivvy out on the lake, haven’t said this Andy and Francesca go above and beyond to make you stay a pleasant one
Were you happy with them?
yes, very good
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
yes. Thank you Andy & Francesca for a warm welcome and making us feel at home
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
yes
Nice location, just the right size for 2 fishermen with plenty of features to fish to. There are lots of tree roots and underwater snags, recommend you sit on your rods when fishing to these areas, the carp bolt straight to them when hooked. All the carp are hard fighting so matter what the size they all feel like monsters

Andy , francesca and there children where great they couldnt do enough for us and if we had a problem we could ring them . Andy was always forth coming with advise to help us catch and catch we did with 54 fish between us and we didn't fish at night as we thought we would get some sleep to keep up with the days all in all a great week.

Had a great time, fishing was good, although I didn't get into the 20's/30's. Facilities really good especially the pool which I made use of everyday to cool down after the hot weather of the day. Sadly I forgot my camera charger so only got a couple of photos.
