Killinarden Angling Initiative volunteers took their latest batch of young anglers to Lough Ramor, Co. Cavan at the weekend. It was the culmination of a lot of effort over the winter where the young anglers were given workshops on tackle care, tactics, methods, knots and casting skills. The catches prove the value of the lessons and the skills of their teachers and coaches…
With a goods turn out for our first 2017 trip to Cavan we arrived to a freezing cold venue. It began slow but as the day warmed the fish began feeding.
Everyone caught on this very successful trip to Lough Ramor and some really good looking roach and hybrids were landed – there are loads of photos at the very busy KAI Facebook page . Catch of the Week, though, goes to Adam for his cracking perch, a lovely 2lb 4oz fish.
Well done to all the kids and of course the volunteers and coaches and parents and sponsors who made great days like this possible.
KAI was set up in March 2014 in Killinarden, Tallaght. Its principle aims are to promote, develop and improve angling in the Killinarden and the greater west Tallaght area and is affiliated with the National Coarse Fishing Federation Ireland. During the summer months the main work of the initiative is taking young people from Killinarden on fishing courses .The Initiative has also been a catalyst in setting up a children’s and Adult fishing club in Killinarden for many of these young people and giving them a hobby they can enjoy for life.
KAI run fishing competitions for juniors and a host of other events feature on the calendar, attracting greater interest to the sport year after year.
