Mick Ribbons, Enjoying Irish Coarse Angling for 57 Years

July 17th, 2017 | by

Two UK anglers Simon Jarrems and Mick Ribbons from Leicestershire visited Lough Muckno in Castleblayney Co Monaghan recently and were setting up mid-week for a pole session on White Island. It was a very relaxed affair and Mick and Simon had decided not to use their keep-nets. The lads were into fish straight away from the start of the session and all of the fish caught were simply unhooked and returned immediately to the lake. This session followed on from a very successful outing in the Bailieboro area where the duo netted over 100lbs of roach, rudd, skimmers hybrids and perch during one of their sessions on the pole. They commented in particular about the great stamp of roach with some of them in the 10oz to 12oz bracket.

Their success is no accident however as Mick Ribbons has huge bank of knowledge and experience to draw upon as he has been coming to Ireland now for a staggering 57 years. His pal Simon has obviously picked up one or two tips along the way from Mick but the most important thing was that both anglers were having a great old time during their visit.

Best of luck to Mick and Simon we wish you continued success and look forward to seeing you back again soon!
