Welcome to the Lakedown Labradors website - I hope you enjoy your visit. Please feel free to contact me with any of your gundog queries, especially newcomers to the gundog tests and trialling scene.
Lakedown Labradors is based at Llwyndrissi Farm, in a secluded valley approximately seven miles north of Carmarthen, in beautiful West Wales. Myself and my wife Joanne bought Llwyndrissi back in 1987 as a 15-acre smallholding. The farm was originally a 120-acre dairy farm. Included in the 15-acres were two flight ponds and a three acre lake which we subsequently opened as a trout fishery in 1990. The fishery was called Llwyndrissi Trout Fishery and turned out to be a very successful fishery and one of the premier small still waters in Wales. In the 1990s the fishery held the Welsh record for rainbow trout, with a fish of 20.5lbs; and it was also the first fishery in Wales to stock blue and golden rainbow trout.
In the late nineties we eventually decided to close Llwyndrissi as a fishery - on account of its success, with up to fifteen anglers a day, and having a young family, we felt it was time for some privacy.
At the time we bought Llwyndrissi back in 1987 I also purchased my first labrador, Monty, as a pet for my wife Joanna, and with this Lakedown Labradors emerged.
