A fine young angler called  Kevin Coogan who is only 13 years old was fishing under Allen Bridge on the Royal Canal in Kilcock with his brother and Dad last Sunday March 10th.  It was a bitterly cold day. Kevin was surprised and delighted to catch a 2lb pike while fishing for roach and perch using a waggler float and worm. Seeing the float go under was such a shock anyway as it was such a quiet day on the canal. But when the pike emerged from the surface Kevin was even more surprised as using worm is not the favoured tactics for catching pike.

Fishing on the banks of the canal is such an enjoyable past time but Kevin and his Dad were disappointed to find some dog owners allowed their dogs to foil the area and leave without cleaning up the mess.
