A number of weeks back, some thirty-seven anglers fished the seventh match of the Erne Anglers Winter League on a fast flowing but low River Erne. On that day a cold, harsh northerly wind put paid to any expectations that anglers might have had of a decent weight.

Thankfully for the competitors, match 8 was a milder affair and that was clear to see with what was weighed in at the end of the day. In the end the winner of match 8 was Jordan Hall – Ring 1 – with 7.750Kgs. Runner Up was Ed Rogers with 6.350Kgs on Ring 5 with Anthony Sparrow 5.400Kgs on Bellenaleck low peg 9.

Other Section winners were Gary Drew 4.950Kgs on Bellenaleck Marina, Dave Slater 4.725Kgs on QE Road & Police Jetty, Darius Kobrzynski on the Forum 3.325Kg, and Colin Moffitt on Derrychara 4.600kgs.

Karl Woodhouse now leads the league on 38 points.

Please fish in a sustainable manner
