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

lovely lake set in the french country side apart from storms for the first 2 days which hindered fishing we had a great week both of us beating our pb's and both catching a sturgeon for the first time . 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.
