Ballinamore Angling Festival Update – Days 3 & 4


On day three of the festival Lough Scur sections E and F continued to be the venues of choice. Francis McGoldrick had the top weight on Wednesday with 17.600kg from peg 1 at the Rocks. Every peg at Pumphouse fished well for little hybrids on the pole; 13.950kg for Seamie Winters took him to the top of the leaderboard.

The fishing on Lough Garadice improved slightly, though Cully’s shore continued to disappoint. There was some consolation with this fine golden 1lb roach for Mick Smith.

Seamie Winters retained his lead after day four of the festival with 8.750kg at Kiltybardan. A great catch for Dara Finnegan moved him to second position. Dara fished the pole for a super 22.250kg of large skimmers on the rocks at Lough Scur.

The festival will wrap up tomorrow (Friday) with the presentation taking place in the evening at Shortts Heritage Bar, Main Street Ballinamore 7.30-8pm.
