Richard Caplice reports from the Lough Muckno Feeder Festival…

No fluke from Mihalyi as he wins with a clear lead,having led from Pillar to Post.

Gordon collects his prize

They all attacked his lead but none could topple Gordon as he piled on the pressure daily, with a section win every day. Tony Hopkins in the end made the boldest bid but even he came up 5kgs short, just ahead of Rory O Neill who held on for third, edging out the ever consistent Shamie Winters who was the final man on the podium.

With a share of the €5,000 on offer and the winner netting over €1500 this was a valuable Festival where monies were spread to a maximum, including daily top three, section winners, section rotation prizes and top individual payouts,much praised by all competing.
Fishing was as ever fair in the extreme while the weather took its toll somewhat on the returning Roach from their seasonal spawn.

Many thanks to Raymond at the Old Coach Inn for his massive support and to Monaghan County Council for their continued assistance.
