The results were as follows:

Winner: Eamon Conroy
2nd: David Greene
3rd: John Gallagher
A big Thank you to all anglers, helpers and to all at Daly's Pub for hosting the presentation on the night.

Fisheries Awareness Day

The Shannon Regional Fisheries Board recently held their annual Fisheries awareness week.

With the assistance of various angling clubs from the area, including our own Boyle & District Angling Club, a day for kids was staged at Rowan Lough, Co. Leitrim. The motto of this event was: "Bring a child fishing".
26 youngsters turned up on the day including some from Boyle.
Items of the day included a kids competition on the trout lake, introductions into angling and aquatic life, display of native fish and other aquatic species, and a Barbeque.
