Dick Caplice reports that he had two teams from the Garda angling squad out on Lough Muckno recently for practice sessions for the upcoming European Police Championships. The practice sessions were held on the Concra Wood upper stretch and eleven anglers took part. The conditions were very testing and challenging and 10 of the 11 anglers fished the pole. Most anglers fished caster and maggot over darkened ground bait and all caught fish despite the less than favourable conditions. Eamonn Bracken, Richard Caplice and Ernie Henderson all scored nice double figured nets of roach, hybrids and skimmers. Best catch of the day however went to Rory O’Neill who netted a nice bag of 31lbs 12ozs on feeder.
