It was a great day out and many lessons learned, ending up with 12 fish was ok, but it really was not good enough. Practice is all so important on the small waters. Learning areas of the lake that fish like to frequent puts so many more fish
in the net. Many thanks to Ned and his family for looking after us and to Alan Lawless the founder of the AWOL League for making sure everything is always right on the day.
I was very surprised to finish second on the day, but after a recount
of points I ended up third. I was doing the scores with Alan, so it was my bad. lol. Congratulations to Marius on a very good win on the day. And a big well done to Darius on winning the AWOL over all with 1 leg remaining. I was just one point behind but 2nd
place was still within reach.
1st ) Marius Lincevicius 17 fish
2nd) Darius Simkus 13 fish
3rd) Denis Goulding 12 fish
caught, measured and released 99 fish, with Stephen Potts catching the longest fish of the day@ 73cm long. Well done Potsey
Ned Maher runs an amazing fishery where lumps of trout roam. I had 12 fish, 11 rainbows
and a brown trout, with a 49cm trout being the smallest, the fish measured in cm were as follows- 49,58, 53, 58, 54, 54, 68, 65, 62, 69, 70, 70.
There was at least 4 doubles in my net that day. Where else can you get that sort of
quantity of big fish in Southern Ireland.
