Junior Angling League in Tullamore  

July 4th, 2017 | by

Tullamore and District Angling Club held their first night of their seven-week junior league on Tuesday 27/06/17.

The league is open to all the public under the age of 18 years and 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.

There was a great turnout for the first night of the league last Tuesday the 27th June with anglers of every age and ability turning out both to compete and supervise.

The weather stayed mild and the rain held off and the evening was enjoyed by all.

The winner on the night was Jonathan Scully who had a net of fish weighing 2lb 7 ½ oz.

2nd was John James Mulligan with 1lb 1oz and 3rd was Stephanie Lawlor with 10oz.

Congrats to everyone who competed and hopefully the next night of competition 4/07/17 will produce even more fish.

Special Thanks to the committee members who organized and are running the event.
