  1. Hiya I've been to Woodlakes where we had a lodge on a corner plot of the lake. It was great. We caught on all the lakes but we mainly fished outside our lodge. After 6hours of sitting in the pouring rain, watching this large carp swimming in the margins, I was about to give it up but, being the stubborn woman I am, I stuck it out. It took a few pieces of luncheon meat, a bit of sweetcorn and a couple of fishmeal boilies to tempt a beautiful common carp in perfect condition. It was my dad's last holiday with us and I proudly carried the fish up to the lodge to show him. He said at last I've

  4. Hi Jim I bought a suit which at first I thought was so big and heavy that I'd never wear it. But as the rain continued to fall on our holiday I thought I'd be going home without catching anything so decided to grin and bear it with the suit. Hey, 6hrs later and still bone dry inside my bib and brace and jacket helped me catch a 22lb 14oz common. If I'd not worn the suit I wouldn't have caught the fish!! At first I thought the suit was too heavy and felt like a spaceman walking in it but after a short time I got used to it. Yes it kept my aging body very warm. The suit was a Ron Thompson I
  5. Hi Gary I went to Woodlakes in 2007 and it was great but for personal reasons I won't go back there. I sat for 6 hrs in pouring rain watching a big carp swimming backwards and forwards in front of me and kept thinking to myself "I'm having that one" and I did. 21lb 14oz common. Lodges on site were good too. Friendly people on site. Wouldn't mind going to North Norfolk or Oxfordshire. Regards Sue
  6. Can anyone advise please? I'm looking for a holiday venue no more than 150 miles from Lincoln, Lincolnshire. I need accommodation for 5 people with fishing lake on site (carp fishing). Any help is appreciated but must say we can't stay in a caravan. Thanks a lot Sue

  9. Hi Thanks for your reply but are you sure you mean the same Pitlands because I have their website as www.pitlandsfarm.co.uk and they have 2 lakes which can be seen from the lodges? I know I'm not from your area but the owner has emailed me with various pictures of the lakes so now I'm confused!! Although, I have never tried river fishing, I've been tempted to try. Regards Sue

  13. Hi Everyone Someone out there must be able and willing to help me to find some sanity in this fishing world. Are you the one to help? ALL I WANT IS a venue for carp fishing with lake(s) on site and accommodation on site too. I would like to visit either LANCASHIRE, OXFORDSHIRE or NORFOLK and am looking for help as we may also have a disabled angler with us. We went to DOCKLOW POOLS this year and it was great but we want to go somewhere different. Someone has mentioned the following and I wondered if any one has been to any of the places.

  21. Hi everyone Thank you all for your help regarding Hunter's Moon fishing. We have just returned from our holiday and had a great time. Carp to 12lb and loads of tench. Lakes were shallow and silty but gave us 2 weeks of fun. Others had larger carp out but we are beginners so 12lb is good for us. Lodges great and I'd go back there again. Thanks again for your help Sue

  23. Working with the kind of clients I meet every day I am not offended easily and can take positive critisism as well as amusing remarks. But if anyone wants to throw their toys out of their pram, please do. Remember, you have to pick them up again!!! Seriously, I am grateful for any help. Sue
