Greystones Ridge Angling Club Host 2nd Leg Leinster Shore League

Micheal Quinn has been in touch with results of the Leinster League match which took place over the weekend and coincided with the Greystones Ridge Angling Club moving into their purpose built new club house at the Marina, Greystones.

The club hosted the 2nd Leg of the Leinster Shore League on Sunday last 29th May 2016 and check-in was from 10.00am to 11.30am in the club house. The 37 anglers who entered the event were all very impressed with the new facility at the marina. Tea & coffee with the obligatory biscuits were provided by club members.

The day was bright and the discussion in the bar was whether or not the fish would prove cooperative or not. The beaches were pegged at 20m intervals with 2 zones in Kilcoole and one in Newcastle. The zones were all well spaced apart to give the anglers the benefit of maximum spacing. A total of 34 senior ladies and gents with 1 senior angler and 2 junior anglers fished from 1.00pm to 6.00pm in glorious sunshine.

Despite the bright and sunny conditions the fish cooperated throughout the day and the predominant fish caught was the reliable dog fish with a total of 147 caught, followed by 66 dabs & 47 gurnard. Only one card was not returned which indicates that there was only one angler who blanked.

The overall winner was Ciaran Fogarty who incidentally walked Newcastle first to find that he was on the wrong beach and then walked the length of Kilcoole to arrive at his end peg, he caught 21 fish and had a total of 1021 points, great for a daylight competition.

The best catch of the day was by far caught by a young Courtown angler Evan Ryan with with 16 fish for 557 points, a better score than many of the senior anglers. The top lady was Paula Dunphy of Bannow Bay.
