There was a great turnout for the second night of the league last Tuesday the 4th July with 22 anglers of every age and ability turning up to compete.

The weather stayed mild and the rain held off and the evening was enjoyed by all.  Weights were poor this week compared to the previous week so well done to all who caught.

The winner on the night was Christopher Leavy who had a net of fish weighing 10 oz.

2nd was Jonathon Scully with 6 1/2oz and 3rd was tied with  Oisin Carroll and Alex Hanley who both had 6oz.

Open Junior  league

The league is open to all the public under the age of 18 years.  The league consists of seven Tuesday nights of fishing on the canal, between the hours of 7 pm to 9 pm.

All fish will be weighed after the final whistle at 9 pm and released safely back into the canal.

Each night each angler’s fish weights will be added up for that evening and the competitors who catch the three heaviest weights of combined fish will be awarded 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prize.

The Club will provide fishing tackle prizes throughout the league to the winners.

Each fish weighed will be converted into points scored and at the end of the league, one lucky angler with the most points will win the prestigious Canal Cup. There will also be a trophy for the heaviest net of fish caught by an individual angler during one of the seven competitions.

There will be various other prizes of fishing tackle to be competed for.

The competitions will run on the Grand Canal stretch at Whitehall. Meeting at 6.30 to draw pegs and prepare equipment and the fishing will commence from 7 pm to 9 pm every Tuesday.

€10 entry fee covers non-members (€5 for members) and all Competition expenses. Please bring light tackle, a keepnet, and rainwear.
