July 26th, 2017 | by

Brian Cooke gives an update on the success of junior teams from the World Championships in France:

The Irish Federation of Sea Angler’s Under 21 and Under 16 teams competed in the World Championships last week in France for the first time in several decades.

Fishing was under very tough conditions on beaches with dangerous gullies and tide rips that flooded in minutes. Species were mainly bass with flounders and the occasional mullet or shad on lugworm and maddie baits.

Both Irish teams performed brilliantly with the results in the balance until the final cast of the four day event.

IFSA Under 21’s silver medal team : Joe Carley, Sean Carley, Jordan Muir, Killian Farrelly, Conor O’ Leary, Stephen Bierney, Ryan Blair, Jim Snoddy and Joe Byrne.
