Hey Tom, welcome aboard - you'll have a great time out there. And send me all your pics when you get back eh?

hi dave
Just wanted to say a big thank you to you from me and wes,
just got back from a weeks amazing fishing on your top lake what can i say 32 fish between us biggest 45.5lb loads of 30 plus and grass carp and sturgeon what a lake and the food package was fantastic.
complements to the chef think ive put about a stone on excellent food lol. I unfortunately didnt quite make the 40 club pal but 37lb absolutely chuffed smashed my pb 3 times.Your a top bloke dave.
good tip for anyone going to fish top lake listen to dave he knows his lake and the fish very well.
but be prepared for some arm wrenching carp because they do fight like you have never experienced.
Once again thank you dave and your missus for a fantastic weeks carping cant wait to come back and beat that 37lb mirror and my 33lb common ,thanks mate

Fantastic chaps, really glad you had such a great time - what a place eh?

Dave and Chris... and Patsy the chef!
Hea dave just like to thank you for an amazing few days in the middle of august on the top lake with ma mate for my 30th birthday. We counted are selves as novices when it came to carp fishing but with you tips we landed 32 fish up to 35lbs 5 of which were over 30lbs which I am still buzzing from. Everthing from food supplied every day (which was amazing) to gear that we rent which was top of the line made the experience that much better. Hope to come back so day snd give the cats a go. Thanx again. Oh and sorry again for pushing that tree into the lake lol guess I don't know my own strength lol

Hey Glenn, glad you had such a great time and caught some lovely fish too.... check out the homepage! lol

Chris K
Just came back from what you would call the wettest week fishing in France, 24-31 May. BIG DAVE (named by our little David) was the best host we could have hoped for, welcoming, fantastic food supplied by Patsy & BIG DAVE was good company through out, couldn't catch a cat fish though!!!
We had 11 runs, 6 caught up to 27, water still too cold, " it was like putting ice cubes in their drink" (coz it hailed stoned 1 day) as BIG DAVE described.
We had a great time meeting your lovely daughters too who let us explore the woods, which was an amazing experience.
We will look forward to seeing you all again in the future, will be in touch soon Dave, Michelle & David

Hey Dave, glad you guys had a great time - apologies for the weather - like I could do anything about it, even with all my great powers! Message conveyed to BIG DAVE as well - many thanks Chris K
Hi,coming to fish lakes 1 & 2 in july,after reading latest comments really looking forward to our weeks fishing..can any of the previous comments post and what bait they caught on and what rigs all info gratley appreciated.see you soon tight lines :)

Hello Billy, I shall post this one up in the hope they can leave us and you guys some useful tips - I'm sure they can, eh boys?
What a fantastic place second trip 3rd already booked. Had very mixed weather up and down like a yoyo but a fantastic week ended on 25 fish 5 of of those being 30s 15 being 20s some high ones aswel they will easily be 30s in the summer. Biggest of my trip was 39.4 . Lakes look fantastic and you should really go for the food package as the food is fantastic. Thank you to Daves wife for cooking me a birthday cake and and thanks you dave for singing. Looking forward to my return visit as some of those 30s will certainly be 40s when I come back. Thanks again for an amazing week
Many thanks

Hi Brad, and this weeks guys have been doing well too so far!

Chris K
Had yet another brilliant trip to winsome waters (6th-13th April) with both uf us beating our pb's again. Had 40 carp out of the top lake the best 3 being 39lbs, 38lbs 14oz and 38lbs 12oz. Had 4 more in the 30's too and many more in the 20's. Good chance that all of the 30's we caught will be in the 40's in the next few months as they start to pile on the weight. All the fish are in brilliant condition and I think Dave's had them dragging tractor tires throughout the winter as they all fight so well! Fantastic place to fish and Dave's great company too. Thanks for another great week, see you again in August

Jeff and Callum
Had a fantastic time at lakes 1 and 2 in the first week of febuary I managed 18 fish total which consisted of 13 20lb fish biggest 28lb 3 3olb fish biggest 34lb and two 40lb fish the biggest and my new pb 43lb. i would recommend anyone to come down and break their pb here its a wonderfull place shower and flushing toilet (I was the first person to use it) optional meals which are amazing, what more could you ask for. Oh and theres fish to 60lb in there and you can try to catch "Aussie" a beautiful fully scaled mirror named after me after catching him at 21lb!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey Joe, glad to hear you had such a great time, some brilliant catches. Looking forward to your return. All the best from FIF
we fished in june and i had a pb of 45lb 2oz.dave/chris are fantastic ill be coming back thanks dave/chris

Hey John, Karen good to hear from you - Welcome back anytime. Give us a buzz!
Went for the first two weeks in Sept. The food was terrific, as was the weather. Fishing was a bit slow, possibly due to the unseasonal heat wave (got up to 40 degrees at one stage.!!) but really enjoyed the stay. Dave did everything he could to help, including coming down to fish, just to show us how it was done.......blanked.! Couldn't have been made more welcome from Dave, the missus and the two girls.
Still walked away with a PB and loved every minute........but feel that there is unfinished buisness on the top lake. Have never seen fish in such imaculate condition. The golden carp that my old man caught was simply stunning and the fight from the 20lbs sturgeon had to be experienced to be believed. Cheers Dave.

Hi Andy, we are really glad you guys had a good stay with us and thank you for the kind comments and of course the pics for the website. best regards to you from all of us at FIF.
Hi Dave./Patsy and girls.
Well...! what a fishing trip,sorry had to go home early wife was admitted to hospital, all is well with her now. So my friend the MK1V cane rod handeld the 34lb Mirror with ease, wish you were there to see it.I even netted it by myself.... Pics to follow.
We should like to thank you for your hospitality and friendship during our stay. Roll on next year.

hi im looking into coming in feb 2011 ive been lookin at pics and reports but there is no reports of pics of catfish wat is the biggest catfish banked

Hey Luke, we have put catfish into both lakes since we bought them and the biggest in is around 15lbs. But we believe that there is something huge (not saying its a Catfish) in Bottom Lake and we are dying for someone to fish there and bank it for us. We have a fantastic deal on now for the exclusive fishing of Bottom Lake and the use of the caravan too. So if this is something that might appeal to you please take a look at our Family Holiday Package page - you wont find a better deal, promise.

Many thanks
Chris K - extra tight lines!
