25/03/12 Lough Lene Cup. Last Sunday we fished the first Trout competition on Lene, and there was a good turn out of Anglers. On the day Peter McCann of Balbriggan topped the day with a fine Brown trout of 1.67kg. Peter was fishing with John Gallagher, and caught his winning fish on his second cast on competition day.  John Mulvanney was 2nd with 1.52kg, and 3rd Noel McLoughlin 1.42kg. The Junior anglers did well and Philip Keena produced a fish of .72kg to take Top Rod, and young Finn Fitzgerald of Duleek was 2nd in the Junior section.  Finn featured in Angling Focus last year on Owel, with his pals from Mullingar, and his dad George won the Ace Cup on Owel in 2011.
