Martin Scott was in touch with a great photo of his son Sean, who was fishing for pike on Lough Derg on Sunday last. 9 year old Sean from Ardcroney, Co. Tipperary was trolling for pike with big lures when he landed a fantastic trout of 60cm. As Martin says,

Not bad for a first trout and the smile speaks for itself. Released safely to fight another day.

We love those smiles too! If you have similar reports of young anglers having a great time and catching nice fish, feel free to send them in to us here at anglingqueries@fisheriesireland.ie 

 

9 year old Sean Scott is clearly delighted with a catch that most of us older anglers would be thrilled with too!
