A total of 140 anglers (119 seniors, 21 juniors) turned out for the Newbridge & District Pike Angler’s yearly Pat Driscoll Cup event last weekend, showing that they are one of the best-supported and most active angling clubs in the country. The venue was Poulaphouca Reservoir in Wicklow, a notoriously difficult venue but one of the few that can take that amount of anglers comfortably. Unfortunately, it lived up to its reputation, and fishing was slow enough on the day. But with the weather being kind and plenty of bankside refreshments on offer, all 140 anglers made the most of the get-together and enjoyed a good day on the water. It was one of the new members that took the cup on the day, as Darren Doyle landed a fine 17lb+ double, which was also a new PB, to take the Pat Driscoll trophy.
