Lough Muckno event organisers report on a successful three day Easter festival:

Some super fishing brings our Easter 3 Day Festival to a close, with Johnny Keith prevailing from pillar to post to win outright. Spring sunshine and an abundance of fish belied the intense rivalry on the final day, as we witnessed some significant shifts at the top of the leaderboard.

Johnny Keith’s weight of close to 17kgs on Yellow Island saw him hang onto the lead with a little to spare from a strong finishing Philip Jackson, who also topped 14kgs from Concra Wood on the day. Graham Worley had another great day with a resounding 16kg plus from White Island leaving him just short in 3rd place.

In 4th place on the podium was the strong finishing Johnny McKinley with a super weight just shy of 15kgs of mostly small hybrids.

A total number of just under 10 thousand fish were landed over the 3 days, with the winner accounting for 780 of those. We would like to thank our competitors and re-emphasise the fairness and quality of the venue where a different peg won every day in every section and rarely did an end peg prevail.
