St Helens AA match secretary Bill Delves takes an Irish angling break every year and his favourite venue is Lough Derg in County Clare where this year he bagged over 100lb of prime bream.

Billy Delves bagged over 100lb of prime bream on Lough Derg

Feeder fishing from a small island near to Mountshannon he cast 40m into five meters of water with worm and a groundbait feeder and this was Bill’s first and best fish.   He was staying in Moloney’s Cottages – only a short walk to the pub – on the banks of the Scarriff River and organised by Active Irish Angling.
