What a start to my holiday at the airport, Anouncement over the loudspeaker.
Ladies and gentlemen the flight to Belfast international has been held up indefinately, oh hell that's my flight, !!!!!!!! i sat and pondered the coming hours, .
I thought i may be in the airport all day.

I then started to watch Pirates of the Carribean 2 on my zen player for around 35 minutes, yipppeeeeeee it was only a 40 minute delay, the incoming plane attempted to land twice but the weather stopped the landing, so they diverted to a nearby airport. I called Ron and let him know about the delay

At last i boarded the plane bound for Ireland.

At the airport i was greeted by the two muskateers, Ron and Mark. back to Rons house yet again, another warm welcome from his two lovely kids after they arrived home from a neighbors house, Shona his wife was at work
We had a few beers on Thursday night with Sammy and Agnes, Ron popped down later

Friday up with the larks yet again, quick cuppa and some toast, rhen the car packed and away we went.

Pegs 5/6/7 were to be our pegs of the day, I had peg 5, ron had 6 and mark had 7

My peg


And looking down on it



And my rod tip which remained like this all day



I did manage some fish on the day, i managed to land 8 roach, and this bream poached from Rons peg



The day continued to produce fine bream for the two muskateers.
I as always had the job of cooking the sausage's for our usual breakfast sandwiches.
Mark with a bream



Time was called, all packed up and back to Rons house, when entering i was greeted by Shona, a warm welcome as ever from her.

After tea and a shower, it was decided to go to the locakl for a few beers, well a few turned into a lot. Greg and his partner Kerry popped in to see us.A great night vhatting, LoL. We left the bar at about 1.30am, home to Rons rather the worse for ware, LoL
Saturday
Up at 6am feeling like death, that's beer and late nights for you, after a cuppa and some toast we packed the car and left for Newferry.

Once there we chose our pegs. Here's mine, i took the picture at feeding time LoL



Ron chatting to Mark here on day2 at Newferry.



Ron and a bream




We all managed to catch fish, Ron had the better day again, Mark and myself strugged, roach and perch fell to Mark, i had roach and skimmers.

We called it a day at around 3.30pm, all packed up and back to Rons after stopping off for a fish and chip supper at the local chip shop.

Sunday saw the day of the match, We were kindly invited to join in with the club match, Greg sorted it out for us

We arrived for around 8.20, rather late for Ron LoL, Pegs fee's paid and we picked our pegs. i pulled out peh 46.

We met with some of the club members, seemed a good set of boys, full of help and information.

To the pegs and tackled up, TIME LADS, ALL IN came the shout, the contest began, balls of groundbait were thrown in around 6 from me, then i started te put feed in thru the cage feeder, Remember me saying my rod tip stayed put just about all day on Friday!!!!. Well on Sunday it did. Not a bite all day, nothing, zilch



One of the club members won the match with a net to over 14lbs

My peg



Not a bite all day, nothing, i was not the only one Mark and another angler blanked also.
but thats fishing, no use in moaning about it, and certainly not to be scoffed at.

Thanks for the pose fellas.

Behind us was a large field, there were 4 horses in the field and this fine mare had a go at biting my hand off LoL



Feeding the birds



Monday , well that saw me visiting the sights of Antrim with Sammy and Agnes.

Another enjoyable break in Ireland with Ron and his family, and Mark as ever for company, The fishing was poor, but the craic was mighty as ever. The sights i saw on Monday, they will remain with me for a long time,


Thanks to Ron, Shona and the two smashing children, Becky and Nikky
Oh Marlk and Ron did go fishing and they did catch fish, but hey thats fishing LoL, i was only happy i went sight seeing. Oh and they went hungry that day LoL.I had TWO HUGE meals with Sammy and Agnes during the day out.
Thanks mate

Thanks for the pics!! Don't forget to take a minute and hit a pub and have a Guinness just for me. There are very few places in Arkansas where you can get Guinness on tap and I always consider it a special treat when I find a place that has it. Nothin' like being in a great little bar, with a pint in front of ya!! Like I have always said "I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy". :chug: :cheers: :chug:

Otter i had more than a couple on the Friday night :rofl1: :rofl1:, :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:

If you are caught keeping "coarse" fish over here you can be taken to a court of law, the maximum penalty is around £5.000 UK sterling, that equates to about $9.970 USD. That would be aimed at a perssistant offender.
Also your tackle could be taken off you

Not worth it i think for a fish on a plate :dunno: :dunno:
