Paul Mcloughlin, Irish Angling Development Alliance, reports on the first carp of Spring at Rathadaire Lake…

I knew it wouldn’t be long before venue expert Martin McHugh got the first carp of the season from the beautiful secluded Rathadaire Lake on the Kildare/Laois border.

And what a fish it was too. A stunningly marked double figure common that has eluded many angers on the lake.
Des Kenny is just waiting for the Tench to wake up on the lake and I’m sure we’ll see him on here shortly with the first of the season too.
