A great bag of canal tench

A couple of Edenderry Coarse Angling Club members were out on the canal last week practising for an upcoming club match. And things are looking good for the match if their catches are anything to go by, as the tench seemed to be in fine fettle and feeding well ahead of their spawning season. Best bag of the session went to Con Heavey, who managed almost 40lb, pretty good for canal fishing. If it fishes half as well for their upcoming match, they’ll have a great day of it.
