25 anglers scrapped it out on the Grand Canal at Sallins last week for the chance to become the All Ireland Senior Canal Champion. Conditions conspired to make it tough going as an easterly wind combined with bright sunshine made the fish flighty, and they were constantly on the move, making them difficult to target. Unfortunately, there were even a few blanks on the cards… But Codin Jurj didn’t let any of that put him out of his stride as he made light of the tough conditions to land 12lb 3oz of large roach to take the title.
