33 Anglers togged out for action on what turned out to be a fine day for fishing and they were not disappointed by the fishing. In total 37 fish were caught and released on the day.
The day got off to a flying start with debutant angler Deirdre Molloy catching her first ever fish 15 Min's into the competition a pike the weighed just under 3lbs, this was not the only one in that boat at that time as her fishing partner Declan Conroy weighted in a pike of 8lbs 30z to give him an early lead. Martin Suffin then followed with a fine fish of 7 lbs 3oz.There were a number of other fish weighed in in the next half hour but the next big one was brought in by Richard Connolly about 12 noon.
After quite a struggle to get him in Richard and his partner Gerry MC Glynn weighed in a great fish of 16lbs 4oz. The sight of this fish gave alot of anglers the hope that there was something big for them out there . In the first hour and a half of this competition there were 12 fish caught. as the day progressed there were a number of fish weighed in between 5, 6 and 7 lbs out by various competitors including the main players in the race for fisherman of the year, who were Tom Commins , Declan Conroy, Jim Clarke and Myles Quinn.
About half 2 the next big fish was weighed and this was caught by Jane Suffin. This was a great looking fish of 14lbs 3 oz and it put Jane into second place.
This fish was closely followed by another fine fish of 10lbs 7 oz caught by Micheal Egan which was good enough to earn him third place.
As persistent shower of rain around 3:45 that lasted a half hour slowed down thing but at the end of the competition a flurry of smaller fish ranging from 1lbs odd to 7 lbs odd were weighed withe the biggest of them weighted in by Eamon Conroy and Jim Clarke which brought the total of fish to 37.
Both juniors who fish on the Ben Egan and Joe Egan caught fish with Joe winning that category.
So the result was .
1st Richard Connolly 16lbs 4oz
2nd Jane Suffin 14lbs 3 oz
3rd Micheal Egan 10lbs 7oz.
Declan Conroy & Jim Clarke

Weather conditions were perfect for the 21 competing anglers. Eighteen fish were caught and released on the day with most of the anglers adding to their total weights for the title of Angler Of The Year 2010.
Largest number of fish caught by one angler on the day was seven by Declan Conroy, the heaviest weighing in at 12lb 10oz and looking like a clear winner
Joe, of course claimed responsibility for helping to land the fish as he said a calm head was required after a lengthy battle.
Tom is now in poll position on the leader board followed closely by Declan Conroy and Jim Clarke.
Jim, who won last months competition, finished in third place this time with two good fish, best of which weighed in at 5lb 1oz.

Paddy left Boyle to return to Memphis in October 2004 and before he left he offered the club the chance to buy the now famous barbecue. Sadly shortly after returning to Memphis Paddy passed away and we now honour his memory annually with the fishing of the Paddy Kelly Perpetual Memorial Cup. This year a total of 29 anglers too part in the competition on a breezy but sunny day. fishing was slow to start but as the day wore on there were some good catches recorded. The biggest number of fish caught on the day by one angler was four, by John Keenehan which moved him closer to the top of the table for the angler of the year award. The heaviest of John fish also netted him 3rd place. Joe Mulrennan also moved up the league table with two good catches the heaviest of which gave him second place in the competition.
