First Leg of Carty’s Shore League on Bundoran’s Tullan strand

October 27th, 2016 | by

Sean Carty of of Carty’s Land and Sea Sports in Bundoran reports on the catches during their recent shore league:

Sunday 23rd of October saw the start to the Land and Sea Sports Shore League with the first leg of the competition held on Bundoran’s Tullan strand . Tullan Strand is very well known in the angling world as one of Irelands finest shore marks and throws up many specimen flounder and Seatrout each year . The weather was clear and crisp and a large swell made for difficult conditions with a big run on the beach, This however didn’t deter the 15 anglers that travelled from Donegal , Leitrim , Fermanagh , Mayo and Galway to battle it out on the first leg of the competition.
