Junior Angling League Success in Tullamore

July 18th, 2017 | by

Tullamore and District Angling Club held their third night of their seven-week junior league on Tuesday 11/07/17.  The league is open to all the public under the age of 18years.  Pat Foran Reports.

We had a fantastic turnout for the third night of the league last Tuesday the 11th July with 23 anglers of every age and ability turning up to compete.

The weather was warm and the evening was enjoyed by all.  16 of the 23 anglers caught fish.

The winner on the night was Oisin Carroll who had a net of small fish weighing 14 oz.

2nd was a draw between Hayden Mannion and Jonathon Scully with 8oz and 3rd was Byron Martin with just under 7oz. 4th Jade Lawlor. Josh Hanley also received a prize.

Open Junior League

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 keep net, and rainwear.
