Rising water at O’Briensbridge sees all small fish in Munster anglers winter league


Munster Coarse Anglers fished round 7 of their winder league at O’Briensbridge at the weekend. Kevin Leahy reports…

We fished our Munster Winter League Round 7 match at the Rowing Course, O’Briensbridge on Sunday.

We had a full turn out today with all 10 anglers in the league braving a damp February Sunday. As the is winner not yet a forgone conclusion it was all important points for some, and salvaging a disastrous league for others (as in my case) was the order of the day.

With everywhere flooded out it was back to our old faithful section at the rowing course and with the river up and rising a good draw was all important and having a peg that you could fish a pole or whip was definitely an advantage. No last minute hybrids or stamp fish may their present felt, so it was a case of put the head down and put as many small fish together as the swim would allow.


  • 1st Pawel 10lb 1oz (145 fish)
  • 2nd Kevin 7lb 8oz (130 fish)
  • 3rd Ray 5lb 9oz (caught mostly on the feeder)
