Irish Ladies first outing of the year took place on the 22nd of April at a new venue for the ladies at Tildarg Fishery, Doagh, Ballyclare. The ladies will like to thank the Tildarg for the warm welcome we received also a special thanks to Sam and Ernie and to the ladies who made us a lovely lunch.
This was the first time that the ILFA used TIldarg as a venue and 14 ladies turned out for the first trial of 2018 a friendly welcome was given to those who traveled far an wide for the trial to try to hook into the spotted trout beneath the waters at Tildarg.
It was a blustery start with strong gusts and scattered showers throughout the day. The sun shone for one angler on the day and that was Julie Gerry who had 7 fish for the top honors. Julie had caught some lovely fish all day but she did catch a lovely buttery Brown trout. The top boatman on the day was Mark Dermott.
The next Ladies trial will take place on lough Lene, Collinstown on the 3rd of June. For further information contact Jenny Casey
We would also like to wish team member Almha McDonnell the very best of luck in her leaving cert which starts in a few weeks time.
