Carrickmacross Angling & Junior Development Club held its first Angler of the Year competition, this Sunday on Namachree lake, Co. Monaghan. It was a cold start with frost on the cars that morning but the weather held up and all the anglers caught fish. Mainly roach with the odd bonus big perch making an appearance. A few of the lads had a spot of pike bother during the day which made the fishing patchy. Peader even managed a nice pike along with his bag of fish.
Results as follows:
1st Steven Whyte – 8lbs 11oz
2nd Bob Gibbard -6lb 1oz
3rd Peader o Brien – 5lb 14oz
Section wins for Mal Mcleod and Martin Edwards.
The club would like to thank everyone who took part and congratulate all the winners. Special thanks to Eamon Rogers who sponsored the trophy and to Henry Hughes for sponsoring the match. It was a great day and good craic afterwards and they will do it all again next year!
