Easter Pike Angling Festival Day1

The first day of the competition is over now and I think we could say that it went pretty well. The weather held up great and apart from the strong & cold northerly wind it was a nice bright day.
Some very nice pike were caught, and this is what the Leadership board looks like after Day 1:

Heaviest pike caught by Mark o'Connor, 25lbs 15 oz.
2nd Tony Egan with a pike weighing 22lbs. 10 oz.
3rd Francis McGlynn, 18lbs. 8 oz.

Leading for the Club members prize at the moment is Emer Beirne with a pike weighing 12lbs. 8 oz.

Leading the Junior section is Gary Nicholson with a fish of 3lbs. 12 oz.

In the lead for the Ladies section is Sharon Diggins with a fish of over 6lbs.

All weights mentioned here are subject to final checking of weighing cards by the club.

Well Done everybody so far, and let's hope that tomorrow goes equally well or better!

A Big Thank you to everybody involved in the Sponsorship, setting-up and running of this great event. It cannot be said often enough, that without the help and all hands on it wouldn't work.

We will see you all again in the morning and wish participants Tight Lines once again!
