The T.A.F.I. Leinster Lake Championship was held on Lough Owel on Sunday 15th April 2012. The competition was fished to a 3 bag limit with a minimum size limit of 13 inches to the fork of the tail and the fishing took place from 11am to 6pm.
In the morning competitors were faced with a bitter north-easterly wind, although this eased during the latter hours of the competition. Intermediate and floating lines were the tactics used on the day.
The weigh-in was eagerly anticipated, as a number of anglers had completed their three bag limit. Results were very close among the top three anglers. Congratulations to Alan Delaney (Co Wicklow Anglers) on winning the overall competition.
The top 20 qualify to represent Leinster in the Inter-Provincial Lake Championship on Lough Owel, Mullingar, Co Westmeath in September 2012. The full results can be seen on the Competitions Results page.
The Top 3
- Alan Delaney (Co Wicklow Anglers) 3 trout for 2.250 Kg’s
- Matt Campbell (Dundalk) 3 trout for 2.190 Kg’s
- Mick McShane (Dundalk) 3 trout for 2.025 Kg’s
In total 71 trout caught were caught on the day.
Congratulations to everyone who made the Leinster Team for the Inter-Provincial Lake Championship to be held on Lough Owel, Mulligar, Co Westmeath in September.
If anyone cannot make it, please contact Brian Lynch (Leinster Secretary) so that he can then contact the subs for replacements to ensure that there is a full complement of 20 Anglers from Leinster to fish in the Inter-Pro’s.
