Alan Larkin won the open and the Festival!

There were 33 anglers (including some UK anglers) competing in the Easter Festival on Lough Sillan. Weather conditions were generally calm but the fishing was tougher than expected with many of the roach away early to spawn.  Fishing the feeder was the preferred method with catches consisting of hybrids, roach and some skimmers. The top four at the end of Day 1 day one were

  • Alan Larkin 1st with 12.620kg
  • Eamon Rogers 2nd with 7.800kg
  • Ian Dalzell 3rd with 7.580kg
  • John McVey 4th with 6.420kg

Congratulations to Alan Larkin of Dublin who kept his Day 1 lead to win the Two-Day Festival. (Alan also won the Pre-Match Open!)

  • 1st Alan Larkin with 13.900kg
  • 2nd Eamon Rogers with 8.000kg
  • 3rd Ian Dalzell with 7.760kg
  • 4th Gary McClelland with 7.240kg
  • 5th Robertas Zilaitis with 6.700kg
