Thanks Again

Hi Derek
It's the senile, lost it completely, dementia suffering, pole happy losing - Yorkshireman ( I think??????)
Believe it or not we got home safe and sound after a very interesting week at Lakeland.
Thanks for a great last week to our holiday, the fishery is in great nick and the fishing was yet again fantastic for both of us, end result a draw.
Catching on average 85 fish per day was great, Viv really enjoys it and this year we both needed the break after Dad's illness and problems(he's fine and smoking his Condor pipe like a goodun).
The new pole is working well, thanks for sorting me out(every day almost) promise to behave myself next year - Yes we are planing on coming back with a Van next year for all my spare tackle.
Photos of a couple attached, yes her indoors has caught the biggest.

Thanks again for a lovely last week to our holiday, give our best wishes to Mary.

Geoff (The submarine) & Viv
Mirfield, West Yorkshire

PS If you happen to drain the lake, I'm claiming all the gear.

Match Results 28th March 2010

Hello all,
Please see the result, below, from yesterdays match. Fished in glorious weather conditions, the match produced very good weights and excellent sport for all involved.
Generally speaking, the roadside pegs fished better. Some excellent individual carp were taken to further boost, what already were, excellent nets of fish. Best baits on the day were pellet and corn.
Mike Brough took the honours with 55lbs 04oz followed closely by Alan Turton with 52lb 08oz. Keith Trimble brought up third with 34lb 02oz.
As matters stand - there are no firm fishing plans for Easter Weekend. However, I expect to have further information in the coming days. As soon as I hear - I will let you know.
See you soon,

My name is Derek Rowley, an Irish international angler who established Lakeland Fishery back in 1990. Our venue allows year round course fishing, with 3 lakes set in 15 arces in the heart of Irelands Lakeland. Providing everything for the discerning angler in a beautiful and peaceful setting, with the oppurtunity to catch most species in Ireland including carp, big hybrids, tench and bream. Matt Hayes of Sky TV visited the fishery and concluded that it offered challenging fishing for quality fish and, as such, adds another dimension to fishing in Ireland. The carp initially introduced have florished into specimen fish regulary being caught in excess of 30lb.
