Mike Flanagan reports on the Jonny Owens Cup pike competition fished on Lough Derrevaragh…

Last Sunday Derravaragh Anglers hosted the Johnny Owens Cup for pike. It was a tough day on the pike scene, and I had a fantastic “Blank”. On the day Mullingar resident Peter  Farbula originally from Slovakia produced a fine pike of 12lbs 3oz to take Top Rod. Well known Mullingar Sea Angler Eddie O, Donnell finished 2nd with 4lbs15oz, and Barry Darby 3rd with 4lbs 4oz.
