Rob Kavanagh enjoyed the fishing – whipping them out of the canal.

The order of the day was angling for small fish using whips up to 3.5m. After a snowy start the session was productive with over 1200 fish caught. 15 minute race sessions were introduced with an average of 30 fish winning.

In attendance were team members, Ciaran Haughian, Haydn Kellegher, Rob Kavanagh, and James O Doherty, with a guest appearance by Josh Kavanagh. Thanks to Irish International Vincent Walsh for demonstrating the method today.
