Gearóid Browne (9) from Barna, Co. Galway, caught this fine pike from the Cregg river while fishing with his dad Daragh recently.

A junior member of the Gale Force Crew fishing team, Gearóid hooked the fish on a mackerel-tail dead bait and expertly played it to the net under the watchful eye of his dad.

On a wild and wet day the fish were hard to come by and, despite their best efforts, Gearóid’s was the only fish landed. He has the bug now though and we are sure it won’t be the last time Gearóid catches the fish while his dad goes home empty handed!!

Gearóid wins our Catch of the Week for his fine fish.
