Adrian Browne reports from Oaklands where the 2nd round of the Winter League was fished…

There was a great turn out on 1o November for the 2nd round of the Ger Hennessey Winter League at Oakland’s. Calm, cold conditions throughout the match made fishing very pleasant.

From the off the first pegs on each section at the back of the first island where catching well. The fishing in the shallow pegs was not as good. There where some fantastic weights for the time of year with the water temperatures well down.
