Contgratulations to Sheila Riolo, a nurse living and working in Waterford, who caught her first ever specimen shad earlier this week.

Fishing at St Mullins on the River Barrow, Shelia caught her super shad spinning. Once again the Tasmanian Devil, ever popular with shad anglers, was the lure of choice.

There’s a good run of shad at the moment and anglers are enjoying the sport. Don’t forget #CPRsavesFish!

Well done to this invaluable frontliner!
