Kevin Crowley reports that the Connaught Angling Council in conjunction with the Tuam Anglers Association held the TAFI Interprovincial River Championships on the Clare River last Sunday. Anglers participated from the four provinces of Ireland with people travelling from Warrenpoint, Cork, Kerry and the midlands. The competition was held on a catch-and-release basis with 22 trout caught for 26 anglers. Conditions could only be described as challenging with high water levels.

Ian Howard from Munster won the individual event and the team prize was contested between Leinster and Munster, with Leinster taking pole position. The Connaught Angling Council would like to thank everyone who helped with the event including the staff and management of the Ard Rí Hotel. My thanks to Sean Finnerty, PRO of the Connaught Angling Council for the report.
