The club would like to thank all who travelled from far and wide to fish the festival once again. High water levels and cold weather in recent weeks made the fishing a bit more difficult but everyone had a good weekend.
Thanks to IFI for their continued work in the River Suck area, as without their help, competitions would not be possible.
And lastly, thanks to the Leyden family in Castlecoote Lodge for their continued support in hosting this event. Their support is appreciated by everyone fishing these events.
