Dermot Page reports on thefirst leg of the Rathcon Winter League final fished earlier this month…

The first qualifier of the 2019 winter league was fished on November 4th. There were 18 anglers out and a total of 38 fish landed over the 4 hours with plenty also lost. There was little wind which made the fishing challenging and the buzzers came into their own in the early afternoon. The top five anglers qualified for the final next year.

The results were:

  • 1st Martin McGorian – 5 fish
  • 2nd Carl Owens – 5 fish
  • 3rd Ger Fogarty – 5 fish
  • 4th Aidan Heffernan – 4 fish (biggest fish 57cm)
  • 5th Glen McGrave – 3 fish

Many thanks to Southside Angling for sponsoring a prize.
