Camlin and District Anglers report on their George Wenman memorial competition fished on Lough Forbes…

About to go fishing...

Great turnout

07 January: We held our annual George Wenman memorial competition today on Lough Forbes. It was a crisp bright morning to say the least with the slip way frozen over on arrival. 18 boats fished and there were some great fish caught. There was also a minute’s silence observed at half time in memory of the late Darragh Healy.

Mick with a cracking 100.5cm fish. One of the biggest caught at the competition.
