"One day in ...1981, my telephone rang... a gentleman with a slightly foreign accent ...wanted some help, as he'd bought a five-acre hole in the ground - an empty lake, in the wilds of Devon. Would I go and have a look at it? As it happened, I knew the lake; it had a huge leaking earth dam at one end, there had been no water in it for 100 years, and the locals said the dam could never be repaired. A few days later, I drove from Bristol to Okehampton, and then up the pretty road towards Hatherleigh... down a long, rough track, full of watery potholes ...was a large house, with numerous outbuildings surrounding it. The owner was in the garden: Polish and called Zyg. ...It turned out that he owned only half the house, a wet, steeply sloping field - and the empty lake, with the base of an old boathouse. I told him what the locals said. He looked at me with a steely glare. 'I'm going to fill it', he said simply. 'And make it into a fishery'". Mostly carp, obviously, but also lots on sea fishing, especially Gregorek's win in the Marlin World Cup of 1999, as well as mahseer fishing on the Cauvery in India. Contributions from Rod Hutchinson, Peter Mohan, Keith Arthur, Bill and Virgina Rushmer, Bob Roberts, Des Taylor, Jason Cann, Len Gurd, Rob Maylin, Graeme Pullen, Julian Chidgey, Jim O'Donnell, Zyg and Zenia Gregorek, and many others.
