The Keady & District Angling Club held their annual Fergal Donnelly Memorial Cup Open Pike event on Lough Muckno last weekend. With anglers travelling from as far afield as Derry, it was an early start for some and all were eager to get casting once the horn sounded at 10 AM. Most anglers opted for static deadbaits with a couple of younger anglers trying lures and wobbled deadbaits.

At 3 PM all the lucky anglers that had caught submitted their cards and the top prize of the day went to Dominic McClosky with a nice pike of 18lb 10oz. In the junior section, young angler Niamh took the top prize with a pike of 7lb 14oz. See the full report on the Keady & District Angling Club Facebook Page.
