Angling in the Midlands
"The charm of fishing is that it is the pursuit of what is elusive but attainable, a perpetual series of occasions for hope".
Here in the Midlands, we have some of the finest coarse and game fishing in Ireland. In fact, the lakes and rivers in the region are rated as one of the best in Europe for pike and brown trout. So why not pack your rod and waders, head to Racket Hall and chill out on the banks of a beautiful lough or stream?
