Enda Nolan was out on the River Inny at the weekend. Fishing roach deadbaits he had his heart set on getting one of the bigger fish he knew were lurking in a productive stretch of water in Longford.
He wasn’t let down by the river or the fish and his efforts were transformed into angling gold when he hooked into what was surely a good double. By the time he played it out he there was no doubting it was a better that that. The pike was weighed at 22lb, quickly photographed and returned safely.
