Athy & District Anglers report on their latest match, fished on Suday…

Results are in from our match on April 7th, a tough day for most! Weather had no idea what it wanted to do, we had sun, wind, rain, hail – the lot! All seasons bar Autumn in one day.

Chris – PB tench from Athy

Some cracking tench caught in this match though, great to see them active in the Marina! Well done to Chris with a new personal best – 5lb 9ozs!

  • Chris – 16lb 8ozs
  • Des – 3lb 8ozs
  • Jimmy – 3lb 8ozs
  • Chick – 2lb 6ozs
  • Ryan – 2lb 2ozs

Well done to the winner & framers! Great fishing lads
