Midland Pike Anglers report on their Open Boat Competition fished on Lough Ree last Sunday…
First off, thanks to everyone who turned up for the competition with 32 boats in total taking part. The competition went smoothly from the start.
The new number system worked really well and thanks to Jacek Rafał Gorny, Maciej Dukacz and Lukasz Sankiewicz for helping to pull committee members numbers.
We would like to thank Jacek Rafal Gorny and Damien Culliney for sponsoring a lure each for the competition. We also would like to thank Maciej Dukacz for sponsoring a lovely canvas picture for longest fish. Thanks to Brian Conlon owner of Wild Total Outdoors Mullingar and to Brian Connaughton owner of Wild Hunter Athlone and Galway who sponsored 2 50 euro vouchers. Thanks to Brigid Mullooly for coming down Sunday moring to take some great pictures as always.
Last but not least thanks to Gerard Farrell of the swan tavern in lanesboro for the lovely soup and sandwiches after the competition. All feedback on the day is greatly appreciated. Next year we are planning on bringing something bigger and better. Once again thanks to everyone.
