The first trial of 2012 was a fantastic day
out. It was a beautiful sunny
spring day and the 8 women who went fishing managed to catch a total of 44 fish
despite the cold wind.
It was a pleasure to welcome Niamh Breen as the
latest women to join the ILFA.
Niamh was out with Susan and managed to catch 2 fish on her first outing
including one of 51 cms. Well-done
It was a great day as you can see from the results
sheet - we also did a "Spots and Stripes" Cadburys event - the
Stripes won despite Julie being on the Spots team
The fish were really strong and fought extremely
hard, many were overwintered and of 3lbs weight and more which made the fishing
We had loads of great home made cakes to eat
afterwards all supplied by Jenny's mum.
A very big thank you to her for making them, they were delicious and
very welcome after a hard days fishing.
To end a great day out we then retired to the pub in Castlepollard for
hot food and cups of tea and a good chat.
Many thanks to Tom Fagan and Lough Lene Anglers for
letting us fish their beautiful lake again; we always have a great day out on
this very special lake. Thanks
also to all the boatmen for their expert advice and help during the day.
MEMORABLE DAY ON LOUGH LENE
