66 anglers turn out in fitting tribute to fishing friend

1834

The VDE Baggers sadly lost one of their members, Slawek Siembida, recently, and in a fitting tribute to a fishing friend, 66 anglers turned out to remember him and pay their respects by holding a match on Lough Muckno last weekend. That’s as big an event as Muckno has seen in a while, and the anglers raised over €1000, which will be donated to Slawek’s fiancee. They plan to make the event a yearly one and will donate all future money raised to a mental health charity.

The fishing on the day did not disappoint, and the top five all came from different sections, showing the lake is in fine fettle for holding competitive events. Aaron Nabc Hutchman was the eventual winner on the day, but it’s fair to say all 66 anglers were winners on this one. 👏 👏 👏 👏 👏

Full results as follows:

1st place – Aaron Hutchman 6.940 kilo
2nd place – James O’Doherty 6.120 kilo
3rd place – Rimantas Kondrackas 5.930 kilo
4th place – Darren Fairhurst 5.610 kilo
5th place – Grzegorz Bojczewski 5.570 kilo
