The fifth round of the Erne Anglers Float Only league took place over the weekend on 07 December with an excellent turnout of 24 anglers in blustery, cold conditions. This round was fished on the Roslea Lake of Inver, Lyons, Gavin’s, and Killyfole, with the two of the top three anglers coming from Inver.

A week of cold temperatures slowed sport, however overall plenty of small roach and odd bonus bream and perch were still landed on Pole tactics.
