Mick Flanagan has all the news from Lough Owel…
Lough Owel anglers recently fished the Glen Owel Cup for pike, and Stan McKeon reported it was tough going. Still a few pike were caught, and Tom Gorman produced the winning fish weighing 6lbs 8oz. Philip Keena was 2nd with 2lbs 10oz, and Brendan Murray 3rd with 2lbs 8oz. Lough Owel anglers will be back in action on the competition scene come August when the Peter fishing gets going. We will keep you posted on these dates.
Another few anglers reeling with excitement after their first trip to Mullingar were the McConville family from Clontarf. It was first for Mary, Ed and sons Tommy and Peter trying their hand at the fishing, and had a wonderful few hours.
It was a real family day out as Ed and Mary recently celebrated their 50th birthdays, and are planning another trip back to Mullingar. The McConville family also are very keen golfers, and a few days are planned fishing and golfing here in the Midlands. Mind you I made it quite clear I am not doing caddy, unless we drop into the 19th hole for a beer.
