Newbridge District Pike Anglers reported on a competition last weekend.



We had 18 seniors and 3 juniors fish the Murphy cup last weekend on a river – water levels were still very high but clear making it difficult for some lads to cover water. Fishing was still very good with some stunning fish caught up to 19.02. In total we had 53 including 4 doubles also a lot of the jacks were between 6 and 9 lbs so good fighting fish.



Firstly we would like to say a big thank you to David Mc Bride of Southside Angling for looking after us with prizes for our juniors section, as always Dave is good with making sure our juniors are well looked after so thank you! We would also like to thank Thomas Murphy for adding to the prize fund for the top 3 lads
