Armfield Angling - Newsletter February 2015

Today is 1st March and a winter season of hard work and preparation drawers to an end and the new season looks forward to welcoming all our customers existing and new for an exciting year on Armfield Angling venues!!

During the closed season word has spread in the UK about the quality of Lac de Villedon as a premier venue and its remarkable pristine fish. Much work has been completed at the venue to further enhance its reputation for quality, and this year it will welcome many celebrity and high profile anglers as individuals and in groups. Swims have been re-surfaced to allow extra drainage in wet conditions, new landing stages have been built to ensure loading of the boats is easy and hassle free. The management team have taken every opportunity to invest and further enhance the venue. The outstanding restaurant has been completed and all of our diners last year including Steve Briggs remarked on its 5 star cuisine and ambiance.

Villedon is expected to produce some amazing results this year following the drain down in December when 1.3 tonnes of pike and silver fish were removed. The remaining pristine fish to in excess of 72lbs have all the space to themselves now within the 100 acre water and this will allow them to maximise growth potential.

We are already receiving catch reports from the venue management of fish in excess of 62lbs and we will post pictures of these on our Facebook pages on Tuesday 3rd March as we receive them and they will also appear on the Armfield Angling website.

Please remember we can also email you pictures of your booked swim from the drain down done last December if you want them. Friday arrivals are also possible by prior consent before 6pm. Email Carmen on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you would like to do this. We can also book you reservations in the restaurant too for the Friday with prior notice. What better way to start your experience!!
