Lough Muckno July Festival


A shortened field of 13 anglers fished the 5 day Muckno July festival last week and Craig Ellis came out top of the pile with just over 91kg for his week’s work. Craig Ellis, Jim Brockie and Charlie Vallender all topped 20kgs on the final competition day resulting in some movement at the summit, as Craig Ellis moved up to top spot from long time leader Kevin Johnson who finished in 2nd place.

Another fine showing by Charlie Vallender with 20 plus Kgs saw him hold off the in form Jim Brockie, for the final podium place.

All anglers averaged just short of 13 kgs per day per man of nice roach, loads of skimmers and many hybrids so all competitors had, by their own account, a very, very good angling holiday.

Congratulations to Craig Ellis, Kevin Johnson, Jim Brockie and Charlie Vallender on great weights of 80+ kgs and 90+ kgs over the 5 days.
