Phil was filming for part 2 of his DVD "Phil in France". The filming was excellent with a lot of live footage showing big fish being played, netted and weighed. Phil also goes into detail about his rigs and tactics that again proved successful at this sometimes tricky water. Many of the photos of this week's Badgers Holt fish will be released by Phil and Klaus in the run of time as part of the DVD and in magazine articles, etc. Part 2 of the DVD will be something special and highly recommended!
Lac Serreire also produced some good fish up to 23kg (50lb) for the group led by Jeroen Albers from Germany. Serreire is producing a high number of carp in the range of 15-23kg this year. It is impressive to see so many 40lb+ fish on the bank and these fish are growing fast.
Thomas from Germany caught the largest couple of fish of the week fishing over a lot of boilies at long range near the center of the lake using chod rigs. In the silty conditions, the chods are an excellent option to guarantee that the hook bait is presented effectively.
Today we carried out the first cutting back of the lily pads of the year which will help with landing fish over the next weeks. We plan to keep these under control throughout the season."
