What spectacular fishing for March! Lots of fish and good weather.

As always the hosts with the most made the trip that bit more special.

Thanks Doug and Sue.

Thanks to Doug and Sue for a brilliant week(yet again)

Fishing was very hard at times and the weather against us for most of the week it made things that little bit harder.

All the fish caught were immaculate. Three PBs broken and a new lake record Mirror Carp of 47lb 11oz.

All we can say is thank you very much and looking forward to next time.

Last week was fantastic but this week got even better.

The fishing was truly amazing, fish in fantastic condition.

Great weather and the hosts live up to the high standards of accommodation and fishing.

Highly recommended and thanks for two great weeks in a fishing paradise.

Very tough week for fishing, weather very variable. All fish in lovely condition though.

Lovely to see you both again, hope you have a great season.

Probably the hardest weeks fishing. Weather bad first few days then scorching hot, fish didn't respond to anything.

Shame but still a fun week.

Another lovely week. Doug and Sue great hosts as ever.

Great fishing although the weather was up and down, mostly down!

Looking forward to next year and my appointment with the big cat.

12/06/2010 Sue & Doug, Claire & Mark Doran, Heather & Tony Evans

This is the first time that Sue & I have spent a lot of time down at the lake fishing since we have owned it.

We were joined part way through the week by Claire & Mark of Kingfisher Pools and also for a couple of days by Heather and Tony, friends from the UK.

No nights fished, fishing from 6am to midday and from 6pm to Midnight. Finished fishing Friday at midday.

A fantastic weeks fishing spent in great company.

1st week superb with real quality fish. 2nd week a little more difficult but still exceptional fish with exceptional accommodation.

Can't thank Sue & Doug enough for their hospitality and help and if there is a paradise this place must run it close.

Thanks for everything again and we look forward to seeing you again in September.

We have had a fantastic week, fishing brilliant, accommodation and company brilliant.

See you again next year! In a word 'Paradise'

21/08/2010 The Wiltshire Family

A very good time spent fishing and only half the nights were fished.

Several Cats lost, just powered off and smashed the rigs, carp were targeted not cats but that's fishing for you.

This was our fourth year here and as always Sue and Doug provide good company and excellent accommodation.

Woodpecker will see us again in 2012.
