Annual Mayfly Cup Competition Results.

We fished our Annual Mayfly Cup Competition for the Odbert Cup over the weekend of Saturday the 15th and Sunday 16th of May. This is a beautiful Cup and was left to the club by the relations of the late Emerald Odbert who lived at Greatmeadow, Boyle.
We had a total of 19 anglers competing over the weekend and alot of Trout were caught over the two days, the majority of which were released after weighing.
Weather conditions were reasonably good although it was a little on the cold side.

The main prize winners were

3rd: Joe Tormey

2nd: Eamon Conroy

1st: Declan Conroy

We had our presentation in Wynne's Bar in main st. Boyle, and the club would like to thank Keith and Majella for the wonderful hospitality they provided on the night.
A great night of storytelling followed about the fish that were caught and the ones that got away, and the later the night got the bigger the fish got.
Our next competition will be the Martin Mitchell Cup and details of this event will be posted here in the coming days.
