Jane wins the last one

It is finaly over for another year. We fished our last pike angling competition on what was a very pleaseant day on the lake on Sunday last.
Some good fish were caught on the day, best of which was Jane Suffins cracking 20lbs 8oz pike which won the day event.
2nd was Shane O'Dowd with a nice double weighing 14lbs 12oz.
3rd was Owen Garvin with a 10lbs fish.

We also now have the Results of the league for the year and it is clear that once again

John Nicholson will be crowned Angler of the Year in the mens league.

Lucy Garvin is the female Angler of the Year, and

Gary Nicholson is our Junior Angler of the Year

A full version of the League is available from our Club secretary,
