"Here to enjoy the fishing, some Irish craic' and pick up a few tips along the way" Tengku Izzudin
Read how the first ever Asian angler all the way from Kuala Lumpur fished his way through the Lakelands and the World Pairs.
Got a ride with Richie Hull & Adam Rooney for the closing presentation at the posh Sieve Russell hotel. Mingled with the other anglers and some were collecting their section money wins. I was then introduced to some of the sponsors, Norma Herron of Lakelands & Inland Waterways, Robin Morely of DAIWA Sports and Paul McAleavey of DCAL Fisheries Northern Ireland by Kevin. It was also good to meet the other anglers again some of whom I had not seen since opening night!
Kevin made a great speech and Cathal spoke on behalf of the anglers. Had a nice chat with legends Darren Cox, Tommy Pickering & Bob Nudd
Congrats to Adam Wakelin, winner of the 2014 Daiwa Cup & partner Rob Wootton, crowned as the new Lakelands & Inland Waterways World Pairs Champions with a combined weight of 160.630kgs.
Well done to the other winners too! Kudos to the organising team especially to Helen who ran around like mad every day to make sure everything went as planned!
