Killinarden Angling Initiative enjoyed a great day out on Saturday the 17th, when 11 adult members all met up on LoughRee Lanesborough Angling Hub for a 24 hour friendly match!….

kai-groupThe weather was perfect on Saturday and we started catching fish from the onset, bream, hybrids, tench, perch, roach and rudd all fell to our baits, We fished into the dark with the fishing slowing the later it got but by midnight all except 1 or 2 had retreated to our tents for a few hours sleep.

At 4:30am people began to rise again but the weather had turned and the fish had gone off the feed. A few of us managed a few extra LBS with some small bream and roach, also Christopher (Cash) caught a lovely 10lbs pike which put him in the lead for taking the 1st place on the pike.

Fantastic place and very welcoming people, its nice to arrive in a town and have people come over to welcome you. There is not a lot of photos because we were all to busy fishing.

P.S A huge think you to Liam Sweeney for all his help! Top man.
