New year brings first ever pike for young angler

1478

13-year-old Shane Gorman from Ferefad in Co. Longford took up fishing a couple of years ago and has been longing to catch a pike ever since. Well, the new year seems to have brought him a bit of luck on that front, as a session on the Fallon River near Clondra early in the new year came up trumps for him. Fishing with a small paddle-tail lure he managed to hook and land a pike of about 3lb, which made his uncle Richard pretty proud of him and it will surely set him up for more success in the future. Congrats to Shane on his first pike and let’s hope we see a few more of his pike in the future.
