The 30 anglers representing angling sections from Hampshire, London, West Yorks, GMC, Herts, Merseyside and Cambs spent the week fishing the Erne competing in a two-day teams competition. Lead angler David Rees reports that they enjoyed some of the best fishing and weather experienced in latter years. The new lodges are superbly equipped with plenty of space and the food and hospitality at the Killyhevlin Hotel is the best.
The competition was held on sections of the River Erne at Portora, Airport and Cornagrade with the group testing out new stands at Cleenish and Viaduct during their stay. Then of course there are the jetties outside the lodges for some evening preparation. The group enjoyed good bags of roach and hybrids as they fished their way round Enniskillen and are already looking forward to next year!
Congratulations to Hampshire who win for the second year in a row!
