  1. Don't bother with the place pal £250 for the season. Two thirty in there over 75 acres with probably only 150 fish in there. No toilets. Bloke who runs it is a money grabbing Muppet and ain't bothered about the fisherie wotsoever oh yeah there's a otter or two to contend with as well. My honest opinion..... stay well clear. Looks a lovely place but looks can be deceiving... think there's a bit on facebook about it. Please check it out first

Couple of days while there pal hit mid 20's, feet in the lake drinking cold beer and steak baguettes but oh my god the frogs at night drove me mad, along with the mozzies and if your listening coops the ants you warned me about earlier they are evil things, but all in all a great experience one i shall never forget

  13. Well lads im back home in sunny england we arrived at the lake sataday to find conditions perfect, we wer'nt at the lodge looking out at the lake more than two minutes when a huge lump popped up no more than 40 yards out , well i picked my swim which looked very very carpy, no runs or even liners for two days so after having a walk around the lake and spotted a few huge fish moving about and decided to move, by this time some of the lads were catching every day 40's 50's and tues a 60 came out and i still had'nt caught by thursday i still had'nt caught anything and was considering hanging myself with some 45lb braid from the nearest tree, i decided to go for a little mooch receiver in hand to see if i could spot one amongst the snags when my left rod screemed off, 10 minutes later a 32lb mirror was on the bank finally i could relax, the lads did the vids/photos and doused my with bucket of water, nothing came out friday but sataday morning 3 hours before i was due to go my middle rod which had been out without moving it for two days over a baited spot on a cell pop up screemed off, after a huge battle in the dark imanaged to slip the net under a fish, after taking out the hook and making it safe i still did'nt know the weight putting her on the scales the reubens wound round to 50,3oz, three hours to go and ive managed to land a 50, oh my god ive hit the 50 club, to say i was happy is a underestatment im still buzzing now, photos will follow cheers lads

  15. Im with Beanz on this one......If even half the profit from years of paying out shareholders and giving huge Bonus's to bosses that dont deserve them and whose salaries make them obscene, had been spent on their Companys Infrastructure then this problem whouldnt be anywhere near as it apparently is............ Not being sheepish here but totally agree, how these people sleep at night astounds me. please somebody dont say very comfortable in there 500,000 surrey mansion
