Bill Cassidy, Connacht Match Group, reports on their weekend match…
Connacht Match Group held the first of hopefully many team matches at Donamon and the new stretch at Emlagh last sunday.
This is a new initiative by the club with a view to showing off the great fishing that the river Suck has to offer, and with the addition of this new stretch the club can host matches with up to fifty anglers.
Five team of four took part on Sunday with 2 sections on Emlagh and 2 on Donamon stands and with a hardy frost the night before anglers were not expecting big bags of fish, however with the exception of the high end pegs at Donamon all swims produced good returns of mostly Roach with the odd hybrid thrown in.
