Leinster boat league 2016

Leg one took place yesterday, 17th April in Kilmore Quay.  43 fished, 1 from Ulster, 2 from Munster and 40 from Leinster.  Conditions were ideal and fishing was fairly good considering it was the first of the season.  A good mixture of wrasse, cuckoo wrasse, pollock, coalie, cod, whiting, dabs, pouting and ling were caught, and one lucky boat had a black bream & bass. Dates and venues for next 5 legs are included in the attachment. 2016 Leinster Boat League

 

IFSA and Galway Bay SAC make a wish

Galway Bay Sea Angling Club and the Irish Federation of Sea Anglers were delighted to present an honorary membership of Team Ireland, to Oisín Kennedy. Oisín an avid angler from Mayo, had just made his way, first via helicopter, then limousine from Westport to Galway Atlantaquaria. Looking at all the different species of fish and talking about baits, Oisín knew his stuff and could wear his team Ireland polo shirt with pride. His family, friends, classmates along with Make-A-Wish Ireland team could see his wish had come through with the huge smile on his face.
