lst 2011 Trial on Lough Lene, Co Westmeath(April 30, 2011)
We watched buzzards and hawks circling in the wind, and saw olives hatching off. All the fish were safely returned to fight another day.
lst Julie Gerry 7 fish for 259cm
2nd Linda Straghan 5 fish for 185cm
3rd Maddy Kelly 4 fish for 148cm
Most ladies caught fish with lots of other fish being hooked and lost on the day. The very strong easterly wind and bright sunshine seemed to conspire to make them miss the target! It also made us all glad we had experienced boatmen so we could enjoy the day out to the full without any worries. Thank you Jenny for organising this! Lots of lovely memories stored away.
Other ladies fishing were Jenny Casey, Susan Brown, Mary Murphy, Stephanie Troy and Hazel O’Gorman.
It was lovely to meet Stephanie, Mary and Hazel – you are very welcome!
Top Boatman was John Grimes who boated Linda and Julie.
