Camlin and District Anglers report on their Ray Gill Perpetual competition fished from Lanesborough…

The Ray Gill Trophy
The Ray Gill Trophy

25 February: The Ray Gill perpetual competition was held today at Lanesborough. It was a bright brisk day with a chilly east wind to bite at fingers and toes. None the less there was a great turnout of 17 boats. Fishing was tough with only a few boats managing to catch fish.
