Date: May 27, 2017

Name: Jason Falkner & Matt Symons

Catches: 17 Carp including 3 x 40s. A new 41lb 11oz PB for Jason

No of Anglers: 2

Tactics: We used a mix of pop ups, bottom baits, wafters and snowmen rigs. The snowmen rigs appeared to account for more fish, although we are sure it was the areas we were fishing rather than the rigs that were important. We fished a majority of rods to the far margin but also had some fish from the middle points in the swims. It is worth keeping an eye in the shallower ends and consider moving a rod into these areas for a short time during the day. The takes were happening mainly during the day time, with only one carp at night, however the fish were switching on and off feeding, perhaps due to them being between spawning periods and the unseasonably hot weather. We went through two periods of 36 hours without a take during the week even though the fish were in the swims we were fishing. The catfish were certainly in a mood for feeding and the nights featured a lot of stuttery takes leading to an unusually high number of catfish being caught.

General Comments: Were you happy with the facilities? The facilities were excellent and the food package is amazing. The showers and toilets are clean and pleasant and the lodge is a great base to work from, with UK sockets available, a fridge and a freezer for baits. Larry took a majority of our kit around in his trailer, so there is no need for you to take a barrow with you. You will not go hungry and the range of dishes is spot on, whether you eat in the Lodge or on the bank. We never really used the mobile home, other than for storage, but is a useful option if you chose not to fish the nights. Bottled water and drinks are available to buy at very reasonable prices, which is a nice touch and maximises your time on the bank, without needing to go to the local town for supplies. Would you recommend the venue to a friend? Absolutely. This is a gem of a facility with excellent hosts in Heather and Larry. Nothing is an issue and they clearly keep working on how to improve an already excellent venue. General comments about your holiday. This is an amazing venue and we will certainly be back, although bookings are going fast with very few options for next year left. Heather and Larry get the balance spot on between ensuring you are enjoying your stay and leaving you to get on with your fishing. We think it would be difficult to find a better organised or run venue.

I must mention how welcoming Heather & Larry are & your commitment to providing us a great trip was most welcome. Sadly I leave Genets without a new PB but with fond memories, new friends & a burning desire to return & do myself & the venue justice. Heather – Thank-you so much for your handling of my special diet – you have been a gem this week & I will return home as gluten free, dairy free & sugar free as when I arrived, however the puddings I was not able to have all looked brilliant too.

General Comments: If you’re looking for a perfect lake for 4 anglers then this is it, in a beautiful setting with enough room to move if you want. It’s not a runs water & we did have to work for our fish but all the fish we caught were in pristine condition. We found that by bringing our lines in & resting the swims while we went to the lodge for breakfast & evening meals paid dividends, we didn’t fish on Friday as we had a day out in the local town also didn’t fish a couple of nights because of storms & heavy rain. The hosts….well what can I say….Larry if you want him for his knowledge is there 24/7 but if you don’t then he will leave you to get on with it but he certainly knows his stuff. Heather is a diamond, she goes out of her way to make sure you have everything you want & her cooking is like Mums. Already booked again for next year :-)

General Comments: LAKE. No effort, catch a couple, put effort in & catch a lot more than a few. If you want a quiet, smallish, rewarding water without fish running up your lines all day – Genets is a no brainer to choose!! OWNERS. Heather is as nice a young lady you could wish to meet, and can certainly cook!! If you do your own food I’d still recommend the breakfast! Larry is a top bloke, passionate about his angling and cares about his fish and their safety, without being obsessive – common sense rules. He will chat all day or leave you to it, your choice. If Carlsberg did owners!! Listen to his advice – he’s owned the lake years & knows more about it than anyone.

General Comments: Genets is a beautiful lake with stunning surroundings & full of wildlife. It is clearly well looked after yet unspoilt. The fishing this week hasn’t been the easiest due to sudden changes in the weather, climate & pressure. When the fishing’s been good it’s been great with a large number of 20s, 30s & 3 x 40s. All the fish are in tip-top condition & again clearly looked after very well. A couple of dreams have come true this week for Mark catching his first ever 40lb Carp weighing in at 47lb 2oz & 15 year old Reuben catching 2 huge Carp of a lifetime at 41lb & 46lb. This is something he thought he could only dream about, one very happy young lad!! Larry & Heather have been super hosts throughout the whole week, they are very kind & thoughtful + go out of their way to help you. Heather’s food is amazing, she’s a super cook, every meal has been lovely with huge portions & delicious deserts! Larry’s been very helpful when needed with a good knowledge of the lake. Being a fisherman himself he clearly understands what the guests require but also lets you get on with it without interfering which we really appreciated. Overall we have really enjoyed our week here at Genets, we are sad to leave as we have really enjoyed the fishing, location, peaceful & relaxing environment. We have already agreed we are coming back here very soon as there’s still many fish we would like to catch! We can’t recommend this place enough to people, it is worth every penny. Thanks so much Larry & Heather, see you again very soon! Martin, Mark, Dave & Reuben.

General Comments: If you like carp fishing, you will not find a nicer, quiet, place to visit, larry and heather are two of the nicest people you will probably ever likely to meet, as long as you stick to the rules they do not pester you, and let you get on with your fishing, it's not a runs water, but all the fish you catch are in excellent condition and put up an almighty fight, the food is excellent as many people have commented on, I would just like to add if you are snapped, can you let Larry no, because some moron left a fish trailing 100yards of line ,which in turn snagged into a quite a few broken branches, how do i know this , the fish was lucky i managed to catch it and it was in quite a stressful state, larry managed to unhook it which was stuck in its gills, and treated its cuts. I came to break my pb unfortunately i did not, but the rest of our gang did, Shane with a 38lb mirror, Tom with a 34lb cat fish, and my 78 year old dad with a 30lb mirror carp which he could not manage to pick up, any way for me there is always next year, but fame has come my way thanks to angling lines filming there, all animals and wildlife was not injured during the making of this film. Special mention to martin who had me in tears and for angling lines for again making this holiday such a pleasant week

Date: May 27, 2017

Name: Jason Falkner & Matt Symons

Catches: 17 Carp including 3 x 40s. A new 41lb 11oz PB for Jason

No of Anglers: 2

Tactics: We used a mix of pop ups, bottom baits, wafters and snowmen rigs. The snowmen rigs appeared to account for more fish, although we are sure it was the areas we were fishing rather than the rigs that were important. We fished a majority of rods to the far margin but also had some fish from the middle points in the swims. It is worth keeping an eye in the shallower ends and consider moving a rod into these areas for a short time during the day. The takes were happening mainly during the day time, with only one carp at night, however the fish were switching on and off feeding, perhaps due to them being between spawning periods and the unseasonably hot weather. We went through two periods of 36 hours without a take during the week even though the fish were in the swims we were fishing. The catfish were certainly in a mood for feeding and the nights featured a lot of stuttery takes leading to an unusually high number of catfish being caught.

General Comments: Were you happy with the facilities? The facilities were excellent and the food package is amazing. The showers and toilets are clean and pleasant and the lodge is a great base to work from, with UK sockets available, a fridge and a freezer for baits. Larry took a majority of our kit around in his trailer, so there is no need for you to take a barrow with you. You will not go hungry and the range of dishes is spot on, whether you eat in the Lodge or on the bank. We never really used the mobile home, other than for storage, but is a useful option if you chose not to fish the nights. Bottled water and drinks are available to buy at very reasonable prices, which is a nice touch and maximises your time on the bank, without needing to go to the local town for supplies. Would you recommend the venue to a friend? Absolutely. This is a gem of a facility with excellent hosts in Heather and Larry. Nothing is an issue and they clearly keep working on how to improve an already excellent venue. General comments about your holiday. This is an amazing venue and we will certainly be back, although bookings are going fast with very few options for next year left. Heather and Larry get the balance spot on between ensuring you are enjoying your stay and leaving you to get on with your fishing. We think it would be difficult to find a better organised or run venue.

Sadly I leave Genets without a new PB but with fond memories, new friends & a burning desire to return & do myself & the venue justice.

General Comments: If you’re looking for a perfect lake for 4 anglers then this is it, in a beautiful setting with enough room to move if you want. It’s not a runs water & we did have to work for our fish but all the fish we caught were in pristine condition. We found that by bringing our lines in & resting the swims while we went to the lodge for breakfast & evening meals paid dividends, we didn’t fish on Friday as we had a day out in the local town also didn’t fish a couple of nights because of storms & heavy rain. The hosts….well what can I say….Larry if you want him for his knowledge is there 24/7 but if you don’t then he will leave you to get on with it but he certainly knows his stuff. Heather is a diamond, she goes out of her way to make sure you have everything you want & her cooking is like Mums. Already booked again for next year :-)

If you want a quiet, smallish, rewarding water without fish running up your lines all day – Genets is a no brainer to choose!! OWNERS. Heather is as nice a young lady you could wish to meet, and can certainly cook!! If you do your own food I’d still recommend the breakfast! Larry is a top bloke, passionate about his angling and cares about his fish and their safety, without being obsessive – common sense rules. He will chat all day or leave you to it, your choice. If Carlsberg did owners!! Listen to his advice – he’s owned the lake years & knows more about it than anyone.

General Comments: Genets is a beautiful lake with stunning surroundings & full of wildlife. It is clearly well looked after yet unspoilt. The fishing this week hasn’t been the easiest due to sudden changes in the weather, climate & pressure. When the fishing’s been good it’s been great with a large number of 20s, 30s & 3 x 40s. All the fish are in tip-top condition & again clearly looked after very well. A couple of dreams have come true this week for Mark catching his first ever 40lb Carp weighing in at 47lb 2oz & 15 year old Reuben catching 2 huge Carp of a lifetime at 41lb & 46lb. This is something he thought he could only dream about, one very happy young lad!! Larry & Heather have been super hosts throughout the whole week, they are very kind & thoughtful + go out of their way to help you. Heather’s food is amazing, she’s a super cook, every meal has been lovely with huge portions & delicious deserts! Larry’s been very helpful when needed with a good knowledge of the lake. Being a fisherman himself he clearly understands what the guests require but also lets you get on with it without interfering which we really appreciated. Overall we have really enjoyed our week here at Genets, we are sad to leave as we have really enjoyed the fishing, location, peaceful & relaxing environment. We have already agreed we are coming back here very soon as there’s still many fish we would like to catch! We can’t recommend this place enough to people, it is worth every penny. Thanks so much Larry & Heather, see you again very soon! Martin, Mark, Dave & Reuben.

Tactics: Margins, to a rod length out from the margin. Regular baiting.

General Comments: If you like carp fishing, you will not find a nicer, quiet, place to visit, larry and heather are two of the nicest people you will probably ever likely to meet, as long as you stick to the rules they do not pester you, and let you get on with your fishing, it's not a runs water, but all the fish you catch are in excellent condition and put up an almighty fight, the food is excellent as many people have commented on, I would just like to add if you are snapped, can you let Larry no, because some moron left a fish trailing 100yards of line ,which in turn snagged into a quite a few broken branches, how do i know this , the fish was lucky i managed to catch it and it was in quite a stressful state, larry managed to unhook it which was stuck in its gills, and treated its cuts. I came to break my pb unfortunately i did not, but the rest of our gang did, Shane with a 38lb mirror, Tom with a 34lb cat fish, and my 78 year old dad with a 30lb mirror carp which he could not manage to pick up, any way for me there is always next year, but fame has come my way thanks to angling lines filming there, all animals and wildlife was not injured during the making of this film. Special mention to martin who had me in tears and for angling lines for again making this holiday such a pleasant week

General Comments: Fishing conditions were difficult with low temperatures for the time of the year,very little sunshine and a great deal of rain! Larry was most helpful in making the best of the challenging conditions coming up with ideas to improve the catch for the week. Heather's food was fantastic as usual - it was simply a question of trying to persuade her not to give me too much! I have returned home half a stone heavier and now have to go on a diet.

General Comments: It was a great venue but felt that it was around the wrong way. As you fished to the far bank margins but the caravan and lodge were that side so was quite possible you would spook the fish every time you walk around the lake.
