Angling guide and journalist Mick Flanagan reports:
Last week I got a call from Brian Conlon in Wild Total Outdoors Angling Center here in Mullingar. On the day Heikp Ippisch of Steinberg near Bavaria in Germany dropped in with his good lady who lives in Kinnegad. Heiko has being coming to Kinnegad for some time now, and was trying to make some angling contacts here in the Midlands. Well the rest is History and Heiko is up and running on the Angling scene in Westmeath. We had a day at the pike fishing and managed a few small pike in very windy conditions, but it was Heikos first Irish pike. On day two we ventured to Derrymore Springs and tackled the hard fighting rainbows in this super Fishery.

The Rainbows were in great condition and were feeding hard in the floodwater that covered the grass margins. Heiko had fish well up on the 2lbs mark, and as you can see from the photographs they were beautifully colored fish. I will be back on Derrymore Springs in the coming weeks, and if you fancy a day at these hard fighting rainbows give pat a bell on 087-8288777. Local Angling  clubs and Associations are more than welcome to run day trips, competitions etc on Derrymore Springs. Young Anglers more than welcome to have a go at the Derrymore Springs Rainbows, and I can be contact on the details below if you need any more info on doing a few hours on Derrymore Springs. All equipment can be supplied.
