Ladies fish Woodford over the winter(March 31, 2011)
4 members braved the cold from September to March to fish 6 heats at Woodford Fishery, Carrickfergus, some travelling hundreds of miles each time to do so.
Its a very sociable event with prizes for the top 12 out of 30, tea and toast before you start, Irish Stew to keep you warm at lunchtime and more tea and sandwiches when you finish. Plus "goody bags" of free lines for those who do 4 heats or more.
Linda Straghan did brilliantly, finishing 3rd overall from 30 anglers. She fished her first heat only a few weeks after she and Brian had their baby boy.
Julie Gerry caught the longest fish of the 6 events at 50cms and Jenny Casey got a prize for the most improved angler. Susan Brown also fished the league and thoroughly enjoyed every event. The craic and banter across the lake was great.
