I don't doubt Chris Jolly et al can and do provide first class 'blood and guts hunting and fishn', but If you just fancy a nice trip on the water in a comfy smart boat you must do this!
Phoebe in the booking office at the lakeside is an amazing personality. She sorted us out with Exactly the right trip - I said I wanted to catch some trout on the lake, and my husband had done a 100K bike race that morning so wasn't up to much.
We went out with Richard on his beautiful comfortable boat and caught 6 trout in two hours - four were superb and two went back because they were a bit small.
Phoebe and Richard both gave great local advice about shopping (I needed new togs) and where to get the trout smoked and sent home, and restaurants which would cook it for us that night.
There were midges on the lake that day so we didn't mind Richard smoking cigarettes, but otherwise would have had to ask him not to. I felt he should have asked before lighting up - it upset me enough to give them a 'Very Good' rather than 'Excellent' rating.
This crowd would be great to party with if you have the energy, but they respected our need for a peaceful time and gave us just that. Lovely.
