The ladies will like to thank the Tildarg for the warm welcome we received also a special thanks to Sam and Ernie and to the ladies who made us a lovely lunch. 14 ladies for the first trial of the season This was the first time that the ILFA used TIldarg as a venue and 14 ladies turned out for the first trial of 2018 a friendly welcome was given to those who traveled far an wide for the trial to try to hook into the spotted trout beneath the waters at Tildarg. Buttery trout! It was a blustery start with strong gusts and scattered showers throughout the day. The sun shone for one angler on the day and that was Julie Gerry who had 7 fish for the top honors. Julie had caught some lovely fish all day but she did catch a lovely buttery Brown trout. The top boatman on the day was Mark Dermott.

4th Trial 2017 Bleach Lough

4th Trial near Limerick. 8 women came from all over Ireland to fish Bleach Lough, near Kildimo, Co Limerick. It was lovely for everyone to meet up again and catch up on news. Bleach Lough is a top class lake with great rainbows and browns that we fished before a few years ago. It was a long drive for those from Donegal and Londonderry! Many thanks to Dave Buston and the committee of Bleach Lough Anglers for their great welcome and all their help with the arrangements. http://www.bleachloughanglers.ie/ The weather started out calm and pleasant but by the end it had got breezy and very cold. The fish fought hard and were in great condition, with some being caught on dries, and others on intermediate lines and lures. Congratulations to Ruth Arrell who was in first place with 6 fish, Almha McDonnell was 2nd with 3 fish, and Julie Gerry 3rd with 2 fish. Many thanks too to Hazel for donating prizes for 2nd and 3rd places. Top boatman was Dave Quinlivan who landed 8 fish for Ruth and Julie Gerry.
