Tough fishing at O’Briens Bridge in Munster CAC Winter Final

March 28th, 2017 | by

Munster Coarse Anglers were back at O’Briens Bridge on Sunday to fish the final of their Winter League. the club had a new shield commissioned for the event, the Barry Smith Memorial Shield, in memory of popular club member Barry Smith who sadly passed away last year.

On the day of the competition the conditions were not as kind as last week when some decent weights were caught. It would be fair to say that clear water and bright sunshine made it hard going at this year’s Muster Coarse Anglers final Winter league match at O’Brien’s Bridge

Every fish counted give the tough conditions


The results were as follows:

  • 1st Ian Kelsey 5lb 9oz
  • 2nd Kevin Leahy 3lb 5oz
  • 3rd Martin Bobka 2lb 2oz

After the points were calculated this meant that the winner of the Winter League and first name on the Barry Smith Memorial Shield is Martin Bobka
