Notaires provides the perfect balance for a family angling holiday, here’s why James Geeson thinks so…
General Comments: We stayed as a family of 5 with Chris and Steph for a week in mid july and had a wonderful time. Our 3 boys enjoyed the swimming pool and the animals as well as the wi-fi!
The fishing was excellent, led by our son james (13) who is the mad keen angler who found and booked this holiday for us. James fished every day on the main lake by the house at the nearest swim. He caught a lot of fish! 64 in total ranging from 12lbs up to 34lbs with the average size just over 20lbs so a great weeks fishing.
The fish fought hard and were in good condition, nearly all mirror carp but we did get one grass carp and a common as well. The smaller kids did some float fishing and landed plenty of small silver fish. James got his PB for mirror, common and grass. We barbequed most evening and the weather was fantastic. Chris and Steph were very helpful and friendly answering our questions and helping us find a tennis court to use in the nearby town.
A great week had by all and I would definitely recommend this venue to hardcore anglers as well as for families wanting a mixed holiday. Thanks again to Chris and Steph.
Details of your catches: 65 carp to 34lbs – 1337lbs of carp, fishing days only.
Your best tactics/bait/rigs: Simple rigs with single or double boilie and some on pop-ups seemed to work well casting across the lake to the margins.
