The NCFFI report on a recent match in Fermanagh:
As we continue to return safely to our sport, with the backing of the local community club’s are starting to hold smaller ‘festival style’ competitions, minus the social part and in accordance with Covid19 guidelines.
The River Erne 100, a new event organised by the Erne Anglers saw contenders from across the provinces fish alongside a handful of competitors from England. Twenty four anglers fished four developed sections of the PAE mostly town Enniskillen town sections by rotation, with a random draw on the final day. Variable weather conditions, affecting water levels and pace of the river, made for some challenging but enjoyable fishing.
Local angler Bas Smith from Irvinestown was the eventual winner with 35.950kg to pick up the £1000 prize. Just a few grams separated County Cavan based anglers Tony Hopkins 34.180kg and Francis McGoldrick 34.000kg who finished second and third respectively.
