Keady and District Angling Club had an enjoyable day out at their first junior event of the new season recently. Fishing was poor but the craic was good as the juniors took the opportunity to explore the outdoors. Only one fish was caught to the rod of Jason which tipped the scales to 3lb 6oz so well done to him. We’ll be holding a few other junior events over the next few months.

Keady & District Angling Club

While members of the Keady & District Angling Club fish for most species of fish, the Club is a Pike (Esox lucius) angling club. The club organizes regular Pike fishing events, usually held on a Sunday, with fishing running from 11am until 4pm. The Club also has a proud tradition of encouraging the young people from the wider area to pursue angling as a hobby and this is one of the most worthwhile aspects to club life.
