HERE IS MARKS WRITE UP FROM FACEBOOK THANKS MARK
Firstly,sorry its taken me so long to get round to this.I went to Edens Lakes for the week of the 9th of june to fish Simons lake.It was a 6 hour drive door to door(dont have to contend withe the English Channel)but the French motorways are great so no problem with the drive.I was met by Dene ,who after making me a quick cuppa,took me for a stroll up to the north lake and to show me where the Shower facilities were.We then went down to Simons lake and as i was on my own i had the pick of the swims .Dene was very helpful and after some advice i chose my swim and got on setting myself up for what i was hoping would be a good weeks fishing.I could on and on but ill try to keep it as short as i can.Despite some atrocious weather for the first 4 days'(i didnt know France had a monsoon season),3 times i had to change clothes on sunday but that was only because i was standing out in the rain for most of the day catching so cant really complain.During the week i had 2 double takes ,one which resulted in a 25+lb mirror and a 29lb 14 oz mirror(so close).I ended the week on 33 fish,3 of which were sturgeon,which was far more than i was expecting to catch.
The food package was excellent,as was the hospitality shown to me by Dene,Karen,Adam,Conor,Josh and Nash.Thanks for letting me watch the France vs England with the family.The showers were piping hot every morning.Dene was very helpful with his advice(probably would of caught more if id listened more).
What i’d hoped to be a good weeks fishing turned into a great week ,the only complaint i had was the bite alarm bird which drove me mad at times but cant really blame anyone for that.Anyone worried about taking a youngster fishing for a week,wether they will be bored or not,then Simons like is an ideal place i can promise you bored they will not be.And the Dads and Lads package looks like a fantastic deal to me.
So once again sorry for the delay in writing this but thanks very much Dene,Karen,Adam,Conor,Josh and Nash for a superb weeks holiday and next time i’ll try not to bring the weather with me.
