Young anglers catch some nice bream on the Royal Canal at Kilcock.

May 31st, 2012 | by

John Connolly, treasurer of the NCFFI reports on the annual NCFFI Junior Canals Championship held recently on the Royal Canal at Kilcock.

The annual NCFFI Junior Canals Championship, sponsored by Waterways Ireland, was held in Kilcock on 26th May last. Despite competition from seaside trips and Communions, 16 junior anglers fished with conditions being very difficult because of high winds and bright sunlight.

With the water being very clear and signs of Roach and Rudd spawning, it was  great that most anglers caught with some nice Bream caught. Anglers were divided into Seniors, Juniors and Novices with plenty of NCFFI coaches on the bank to provide tuition and assistance.

All anglers had a great day and most learned some valuable tips to further them on their angling career! It was great to see so many female anglers on the bank.

The NCFFI would like to thank Waterways Ireland for their continued sponsorship of this event and the preparatory work done on the bank By Robert McGee and Ron Durkin. A big thank you also to Dave, Des and Karl in Southside Angling with their fantastic help with the prizes.
