Munster Coarse Anglers were back at O’Briensbridge at the weekend. Kevin Leahy reports…
We fished the 6th leg of the Winter League upstream of dam end at O’Briensbridge. It was not the best or worst of days weather wise. With the river at summer levels, not flowing and clear, it was always going to be a bit of a struggle.

In the end most anglers caught between 15 to 30 fish. It was size and the all important bonus fish that made the difference. The early pegs nearer the dam fished more consistently. So it was no surprise Ray on peg 3 and Pawel on peg 2 came 1st and 2nd with Steve getting that all important 3rd spot.

Ian’s late hybrid saw him avoid last position and take 6th place.

Ian is carrying on the tradition of catching a hybrid in the last few minutes of the match. Not a lump like the one he had last year but still enough to catapult him up from a possible last to 6th place!
