Well done to Denis Goulding, Roger Fowler and Sean Kirwan part of the 6-man Leinster team. Whom all put in alot of practice and teamwork to pull off a great win. Congratulations guys. Congrats to all the winners & qualifying team anglers from all provinces. As always great hosts Johno & Enda at Laois Angling Centre.

North Kildare Trout & Salmon Anglers Association held their Social evening on Sunday. There was a great crowd in attendance, with people coming through the doors from 3pm.Everyone was in great form, and the chat was all about the upcoming season. Its an annual event and always great to get out and meet fellow anglers. Thanks everyone for coming along and making it a great event.

Of course we are all looking forward to the season starting up shortly. In Munster they are lucky and are at it already. For others 1st March is the start of the season with a few of us having to wait till St Patricks Day. Let’s hope the rivers drop a bit and we see warmer weather coming in.

Here’s one for the boxes, an early season nymph that has always worked a treat for Mark and Peter. Always gets plenty of trout.

​Tackle Bag

We are going to start looking through the lads chestpacks and what they find essential or would recommend for the season.

Introducing the Mini Chest Pack from Piscari-fly. A superb pack that we have been using lately in recent competitions or on our travels. Mark in Wales and Peter in Australia. Scaling everything down to what you only need. A fantastic product that’s great for young anglers starting off or if your competition focused. Check out the video here
