Brendan Jarvis reports on the Newbridge and District Pike Anglers 24 hour competition fished at the weekend…


We held our 24 hour competition last Saturday/Sunday on a midland river. Access was kind of difficult with tall bull rushes growing all along the river. Still, we had 20 members fish and they caught 85 pike including 4 doubles to 14lb 8oz caught and released.  right so full results are as follows :

Winner of Gingerstown Cup 2019

  • 1st Steo Brien 14lb 08oz hf 25lb 0oz bag 3 fish
  • 2nd Ray Collopy 49lb 12oz bag 15 fish
  • 3rd Brendan Jervis 37lb 11oz bag 7 fish

Well done to all the winners on the day

I would like to thank all the members who made the trip this was a special competition as this one was owned by our former member who passed away tragically last month as a mark of respect we all had a drink in his memory at 10pm Saturday night.

Upcoming events

Our next cup is the mighty Dubs cup. Most lads will be staying over that night so if you haven’t booked your room let me know asap.
