Paul McLaughlin reports on the Naas and District Anglers club social fished on Sunday…

Fantastic fishing today for our club social. Fishing with friends for the big stakes of a fiver a man in very high water levels returned bags of good sized roach. Feeder and waggler tactics were most popular.

Combined in the match was some serious angling in our ongoing knockout challenge with Aussie and Dave Cullen battling it out one on one for a space in the quarter finals. Aussie narrowly took round 1 from David with 9kg vs 7.6 kg . All to play for on the return leg with David having choice of venue.

Overall weights were:

  • Aussie 9.025kg
  • And newcomer to match angling David Keirns with a fantastic second with 7.900kg
  • David Cullen 7.650kg and lukasz with 7.550kg with only a fish between them.
  • Shane kavo on the pole with 6.5 kg Padraig O’Riordan on the waggler with 6 kg +.
  • Another mention must go to venue expert Sean Campbell with nearly 6kg. Excellent fishing Sean.

The rest of us mere mortals had to settle with weights from 3 to 5 kg.

Great day out with great bunch of lads.
Thanks to all.
