Fishing slow, but banter abounds at Newbridge District Pike Anglers outing

1354

The Newbridge District Pike Anglers were back on the banks for the first time in 2024 recently, and they struggled to find a day for their outing that wasn’t hampered by bad weather. Having changed venues multiple times, they finally fixed on a spot, and 19 anglers made the journey but were faced with 50mph gusts, which made the fishing somewhat challenging!

Only nine pike were caught, but at least they were well spread about amongst the anglers, as eight of them managed to catch a fish. But the disappointment with the lack of fish was offset by the craic of meeting up for the first time this year and all the riverside banter.

Full results are as follows
1st Stephen Whitely 6.14hf 1fish
2nd Brendan Jervis 7.14 bag 2 fish
3rd Sean Walsh 5.15 hf 1 fish
Please fish in a sustainable manner
