Paddy's Day Comp 2017

Hi All

A drizzly morning greeted the Leixlip Anglers for their first competition (social gathering) of the year. However as usual such weather would not dampen spirits nor deter us from a bit of fishing. The Rye has been fishing very well for the past couple of weeks so a good day was expected. As usual always a good turn out for the first get together of the year with over 20 anglers out for the day. A good return of fish as well with more than 50 fish over the measurable 8 inches caught and countless small trout & salmon par. The Trophy was won in the end by Eduard Dondea with a 12.5 inch trout as his biggest, Gianluca Paolella also caught a 12.5 inch trout but came 2nd on count back to Eddies next biggest fish, Dermot Mitchell was 3rd with a 12 inch trout, very well done to Eduard and all who got out for a lovely days fishing. The next comp is the Hawthorn Cup which is scheduled during April hope to see you all there. in the mean time heres a few photos to wet the appetite. Also the league table has begun for this year check out the league table page.
