Co. Leitrim Angler Charlie Greaves won back-to-back angling festivals on the fish-filled Inniscarra Lake after quickly spotting a massive and sudden change from bream to roach fishing. The Cork lake that is famous for its bream fishing saw a great turnaround that caught most of the competitors on the hop. And while feeder fishing is usually the key to a netful of fish, many of the better catches came from pole-to-hand and included a lot of roach.
