Noel Tynan from Cork was fishing with his brother Neil and friend Colin Rahilly when he landed the fine specimen trout while trolling. Fishing from Dringeen Bay they landed 75 trout over 4 days fishing – releasing all fish except 3.   The fish that they caught and returned were averaging approximately 2.5 – 3.5lbs.   Noel also caught a 25lbs pike which he also returned after a photo.
