The Limerick Pike Anglers held their sixth competition of the winter season last week in far from wintry conditions. Most of our reports from them this year had them facing freezing temperatures, cold winds or torrential rain, but last week this all changed as the sun came out and anglers were able to enjoy a bit of rest and recreation while fishing rather than the usual hardship.

It was a junior angler who came to the fore on the day as Thomas Williams landed two eight pounders in short succession to top the table on the day beating all the adults including his dad who currently tops the league. The next best catch of the day went to the angler who managed to fish a pack of biscuits out of the water before they got a soaking…

Quick with the net to prevent a soggy biscuit…
