Munster’s Coarse Angling Council hosted the annual Jackie Lennox Munster Open on Inniscarra Lake 25/26/27 October with 30 anglers fishing on the Coachford Greenway.

The weather was not great with the anglers battling against extremely windy conditions each day. Winds coming in the from the South West at 30 to 50mph made the fishing very difficult and the weights lower than expected. Feeder fishing for skimmers was the most successful method, with some roach caught on the whip and a few on the pole!
