Great feedback for Gigantica
We don't oftern publish feedback from anglers that visit Gigantica but Danny's trip resulted in such high praise we felt compield to pass on the adulation. Here's Danny's feedback from his resent trip...
Hope all is well & you don't mind the direct email but Steve passed on your email address and said you wouldn't mind. Being an Ops manager for a large company myself I know that a large amount of people will be very quick to jump up to moan and complain but very few will bother to take the time out to write and say something positive.
So just a quick one really to pass on my thanks after a blinding trip to Gigantica main lake last week. From the very start of the experience I was more than impressed , From Jon Mann sorting the booking and immediately sending out the clear & concise paperwork , Chatting to Ali and Darrell at the Northern Angling Show about the lake when I was supposed to be working on the darkside @ 'Nash' to being greeted at the gates by Steve & Adam. The trip began in totally the right way with proper introductions ,Croissants , banter & a proper walk & talk around the lake (unlike other French holiday venues I've fished) , The swim draw is fair for all especially when I drew ball '1' and had been watching fish crash out from the Alamo !! The swims all nicely presented , the kit provided in top notch condition and then Tea round in the swim on the 1st night to allow you chance to get settled were all very nice touches which I've not had at other venues.
The week as you will already know went very well for me with landing 7 fish including the massive 127lb brace of 'The Weld' & 'The German' , The help Steve gave with the brace especially keeping me calm and taking some superb photos and videos etc which need a few strong words editing out before I can post them were second to none. The help and advice the guys offered to all anglers around the lake was again top notch and helped a few of the slightly less experienced anglers massively. The food , the facilities , the fish , the tackle shop , the staff etc etc were all much higher than my initial expectations from a holiday venue based on previous experiences and for that I take my hat off to your team. Was also nice on Friday evening to have a catch up with a familiar face when Buzz arrived back at the lakes as I've known buzz from his previous position for a few years.
Anyway I could waffle on for hours about the whole trip & definitely the brace but I'll save that for another time , I have done a full write up and sent it off to Carp talk & Anglers Mail with Pics etc but if you or certainly someone on your media team wants a copy for Korda's or Gigantica's websites with pictures just let me know as I know all to well how much good promotion and marketing are a big part of this kind of business having spent a number of years over on the dark side with 'Nash' as a fieldtester then Consultant until recently backing off in search of a new challenge and initially have now joined Steve @ Mainline for baits which has been a very wise move.
Anyway thanks again to you and the team for an absolute top class experience which I'm sure will be repeated again in July on the road lake when I go over there to help a couple of younger anglers on their 1st trip to France. And also I'll be booking 2 more trips on the Main for next year as well (But don't tell the Mrs !!) and if you're ever looking for a daft northerner to join the team in however small a capacity you've certainly got one here :-)
Many thanks again
