Four new fishing lakes in Vas County will be renewed during the developments implemented from the more than 136 million HUF TOP grant that has just been awarded.

Association has previously won nine projects at eight locations out of HUF 110 million in the TOP tender, which has already been won within the framework of the "Széchenyi 2020 Program" in line with the Regional Development Strategy of Vas County . In the current project, the and Lake Celldömölk will be renewed.
“Not only the anglers can be happy with this tender, but also the family members of the anglers, as well as everyone who uses these tools and developments, which we implement from these tenders. Seven years ago, there were hardly more than four thousand of us anglers, and this year we have eleven thousand registered anglers, he said, adding that if we take into account their family members, we can say that only forty thousand people use it here in the county by the Iron County Association. implemented and are responsible for the recreational activities of these families. We have won several projects in recent years, which have enabled eight lakes to be completely renewed and provide a cultured environment for anglers and visitors to the lakes, and in the current project we will be developing in four new locations. ” - Miklós Seregi finished his greeting, then asked László Majthényi, President of the Vas County Assembly , to share his thoughts.
„2014. In August, we sat down for the first time to talk to Norbert Puskás about their development ideas. At that time, a very serious professional material was completed, to which its authors also assigned numbers. When the county implementation of the Territorial and Settlement Development Operational Program started, we managed to implement nine projects in eight locations with a modest amount of HUF 110 million. László Majthényi began his thoughts. He pointed out that the success of the developments can be seen and experienced by everyone who has been fishing in the vicinity of these lakes or has spent time with his family and friends. The chairman of the Vas County General Assembly expressed his joy that we had got there: we managed to include four new locations in the development of fishing tourism within the framework of the TOP. The world has changed a lot in the last four to five months, but it reassures us that the smaller-scale developments that have taken place are still marketable, there is still a demand for them. ”
Ministerial Commissioner Zsolt V., Member of Parliament, expressed his joy in connection with the investments that the developments will affect several points of the county. “The world has changed, and while it’s a fishing tourism development, it won’t be the most important thing about how many guest nights it induces. It is certain, and it can be shown, that fishing tourism is a very developing sector, but it is still the most important element of having fun, here in Vas County, in our own community. ” he said, then pointed out that in the spring there were spectacular changes in two areas: one was that small gardens had never been so well cared for, that village life, activity in our own environment, turning to nature had become more valuable. The other is that so many people have never visited the lakes before. During the epidemic, we realized that there are activities in which we can take care of each other with confidence and do something contrary to it, such as visiting very distant destinations, chasing foreign experiences. I also congratulate the municipalities, as the lakes are the scene of useful leisure time, and in Vasvár, for example, this is also connected to other attractions around the lake. "
