55 anglers turned out to fish the first round of IPFAC qualifiers on the River Inny last week. The competition coincided with some bright sunny weather, making the pike difficult to tempt on the day. Most of the pike that were caught were on the small side, but some anglers managed decent numbers, and Peter Sheridan came out on top with a creditable 10 fish for 52lb 14oz. There were a couple of doubles on the day, with the biggest being a fish of 14lb. A total of 159 were caught.
