February 23rd, 2017 | by Myles Kelly
Bill Cassidy, chairman of the Suck Valley Angling Hub reports:
On Sunday last the Suck Valley Angling Hub held a match on the River Suck at Ballyforan Bends a section renowned for big bags of fish over the years. A bitterly strong wind didn’t dampen the spirits of the anglers that turned up. Some travelled from as far away as Cavan and Carlow.
At the end of a very cold day which saw all the anglers stick it out to the end. The big weights didn’t materialise but still everyone had a good day.
Winner on the day was Gary Doyle from Carlow with a weight of 10.660kg consisting mostly of roach and perch.
Second was Rory Dunne from Roscommon with a weight of 7.880kg mostly hybrids and perch also.
Joint third was Nigel Houldsworth from Gowna and Sean Tallon from “Castlerea” with a weight of 3.200kg.
Well done to all for turning up and hopefully our next match will have much milder weather.
