In addition to the fishing the lads also did a cash/tackle/rod collection for the ‘angling first group‘ in Lurgan that had 60 rods and tackle stolen in early December. The Pike Rigs R Us lads also collected £87 and a box full of rods/tackle on the day of the competition which they will be passing on to the angling first group this week.
