Blazing sun at Bairds Shore for Ballybay knock-up

May 30th, 2016 | by

The Ballybay Angling Association fished their most recent knock-up match in glorious weather once again. Sunday saw 13 anglers fish the competition held on Bairds Shore. With fish spawning, the fishing was hard and weather conditions did nothing to help matters. The lake was flat calm and one angler took a dip mid match just to cool himself down!

On a side note well done to club members Finnian Feeney and Andy Chapman on their sponsorship with Bolands Groundbait.

Results are as follows:

  • 1st Liam O’Brien Boland Ireland 2lbs 13ozs
  • 2nd Noel Kellet 1lb 14ozs
  • 3rd Dave Worsnup 1lb 5ozs.

Section wins went to Neil Mazurek & Rory O’Neil.

Well done to all who fished.
