Portumna Coarse Angling Club fished a club match on Sunday on pegs 1 to 17 (Town and Stic Ups).

The Shannon was well up following all the recent rains, having risen a further 6 inches and was tanking past the pegs. Nevertheless, it did not let the anglers down and fished as expected. Four of the anglers did not weigh but some decent bags were put together. Pavel did best on the Town section weighing in 12lb 15oz. Best weight in Stic Ups was caught by Sean – 11lbs.


  1. Pavel 12lb 15oz (Town)
  2. Sean 11lb (Stic Ups), Bill 9lb 08oz (Town)
  3.  Joe Nolan 8lb 4oz (Town), Bruce Pennell 7lb 12oz (Stic Ups)

Their previous competition was fished on a very cold March 5th, but with lower water. Catches were much better all round with 15 of 17 anglers getting into double figures and first place going to Bruce Pennell with a truly impressive 31lbs 12oz.
