Leixlip and District Anglers Association held their St Patrick’s Day competition on 24 March due to poor conditions earlier in the month…
The Paddy’s day competition was fished on Sunday 24th March. The event was delayed due to the aftermath of storm Emma and the rolling flood which kept the river un-fishable for nearly 2 weeks.
We all got out Sunday and were greeted by a lovely sunny morning, all be it not a warm one, and the yearly fry up which is always welcome.
The biggest fish fell to Gianluca with a lovely trout of 14.5 inches winning him the Jimmy Carroll trophy for the first time. Well done Luca and all who fished on the day.
Here`s a few pics taken on the day, see you all on the river soon: http://leixlipanddistrictanglers.blogspot.com/
