Yesterday was the final day of the fifth Carrickmacross Coarse Angling and Junior Development Clubs annual fishing summer camp. This years event was held at the Brothers Lake in Carrickmacross, Co. Monaghan over the last four days. Thursday 7th July saw the young enthusiasts turning up take part in a pairs competition where they could showcase all they had learned over the duration of the course. Those attending had been introduced to fishing techniques and tactics by the clubs coaches and members of the club and had all participants made great progress over the four days of the camp. The winning team caught 88 fish showing that they had well mastered the art of angling.
The Carrickmacross Coarse Angling and Junior Development Club summer camp has been running for five years and has catered for nearly 100 novice anglers and improvers. The clubs youth development programme has already produced great results with some of the clubs top class junior anglers having already made their mark on a very competitive match scene. It is hoped that this success will continue well into the future. The event was sponsored by Les Harris of Lakeside Angling in Castleblayney and Inland Fisheries Ireland.
