Jim Clohessy of Topfisher.eu. swings the attention back to Cork with a fine ling weighing 16lbs. Jim was using the Abu Rocksweeper Nano 5-25g .

He tells us “One of the best fights all year! I had a fair idea it was a ling due to the tearing and rolling. I was very cagey as I reckoned a decent ling might hammer my flouro leader (20lb). In fairness the leader and new line held up superbly. Earlier I had a ling hammer a pollack too! You can see the bite marks in the picture… I suppose it could have been the same fish”

Ling - 16lbs for Jim

Jim Clohessy and some of Ireland’s finest angling journalists decided that they would like to establish an online presence where they could continue to publish articles that would be of interest to all anglers wherever they are based (following the demise of Irish Angler magazine), but of course with a distinctly Irish flavour. So that’s what you get at Topfisher.eu.
