Over 50’s bag big at Breffni 5-Dayer


The Breffni Arms Hotel in Arva recently hosted its 5-day over-50s competition, which proved to be a smashing event. Over the course of the festival, there was some superb fishing, which was well spread amongst the anglers with plenty of 10kg+ bags and a healthy sprinkling of 20kg+ hauls. Steve Canty set a high bar on Day 1 with an exceptional bag of 50+ kg. That proved to be the bag of the festival, and everyone else was playing catch up from there on.

And that’s exactly what Neil Mazurek did, taking advantage of Steve’s only low weight of the week to sneak ahead on the final day as his 11.88kg bag saw him win by just under 700g.
