Tullamore Junior League Update

Tullamore and District Angling Club held the fifth night of their seven-week junior league, which is open to the public under the age of 18 years of age, last Tuesday (25th July 2017).

There was a fantastic turnout with 26 anglers of every age and ability turning up to compete. The weather was warm and the evening was enjoyed by all.

About the Tullamore 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 (#CPRsavesfish).
  • 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.
