What a week!!
Andrew & Barbara Brazier
Weather has been variable with sun, drizzle, heavy showers and temp between 18° - 24°
Using a bait boat for the first time and took advice from Glen as to where to bait up, once decided the rods were marked up and I fished over the same mark all week. Baited with Glen's House Pellet & Maize and waited. WOW!! First fish 38lbs 12oz Mirror and they kept coming.
3 Fish over 40lbs - best was a 42lb
9 Fish over 30lbs - best was 39lbs
2 Sturgeon - best was 23lbs & the rest were in 20lbs bracket, only 2 orginials.
Only fished mostly from 5 - 9pm, at my age I am not night fishing.
Week 2 I will be following the same procedure and await events.

We had such a great time at 'Etang Hirondelle' and you both made it really special too! Thank you very much for all your friendly help!
We had a great week catching with 4 x 30+ carp, plenty of 20s and 5 Sturgeon (which are good fun)! The girls loved it too, especially Annie with her love affair with the donkeys and chickens! 😁
A brilliant time and yes we will return! 👍
Thanks again!

This is our 4th visit and wouldn't come anywhere else ! Our second home. Etang Hirondelle is an amazing place and its a privilege to be allowed to come, relax and catch fish.
Fishing days and into the early hours (Pellet & maize from Glen is excellent) Weather warm 34° first week and even hotter the second week !
We caught 37 fish - PB for Tracey , A whopping 45lbs 2ozs, PB previous 33lbs & PB Common carp 30lbs 2ozs !
For me 32lbs Mirror as well as a lovely Crician amoungst others.
No visit is not complete until you've caught a Sturgeon, one of our last fish of our holiday.
The plunge pool is a must on hot days.
All the animals are gorgeous, the baby chickens and of course the donkeys love visits.
Thank you Linda for our Sunday Roast and Fish n chips , lovely .
Never want to leave ! Booked already for next year & for 2019 for more memories to happen - An amazing fortnight !

First time at Etang Hirondelle and what a fabulous, beautiful lake !
The lake is stunning, the cottage far exceeded our expectations and the facilities were spot on. Glen keeps the lake pristine. This venue is so peaceful and tranquil with an abundance of wildlife.
Fishing was challenging with the weather topping 30°c everyday and day time was to hot to fish. The pool was great and a welcome relief from the heat.
Despite the weather we still caught some great fish, concentrating on lake in the evenings through to the morning. Glen's pellet and maize made a difference, in total 20 fish caught, 11 Commons biggest 20lbs 8ozs.... 5 Mirrors biggest was 30lbs 8ozs, 3 Sturgeon biggest 20lbs, we had never caught a sturgeon before, what a fight they give ! Stunning Grass carp 24.5lbs they go mental!
We will definitily be back.

We have been "fishing with the Millers" for many years, this is our 4th visit to Etang Hirondelle. This time we stayed for two weeks. This is such a beautiful place, the angling is amazing and the lake perfect. The villa is full of charm and we love it !
Linda's "Meals on Reels" are fantastic and very welcome at the end of a fabulous day.
The weather this visit has been hot so sunning by the pool has been an added bonus.
Fish wise........To many to count. Most of the fish were caught in the evenings due to the incredible weather? Best 3x 30LBS+, 10x 20lbs+, 4x 19lbs+ Sturgeons plus original stock. Using Glen's House Pellet and Maize works a treat.
Glen & Linda are wonderful people, perfect hosts and have given us loads of incredible memories from our holidays, thankd you just doesn't seem to be enough.......Can't wait till our return.
