Hello everyone

event: leixlip coarse fishing festival,royal canal,co.kildare,ireland.
date:25 and 26th may 2002 (sorry its a bit late).

Terrible weather in the previous weeks had left water temp way down meaning that this 2 day match was a real grueller.

Over 70 anglers fished with the two tops weights of 8lbs 1oz and 7lbs 2oz both consisting of just one fish (both big bream from a small stocking of 6 fish taken from lough sheelin and put into the canal on the 24th), 2lbs was good enough to win most sections.

i didnt fish the match but i predicted 10lbs would be good enough to win and so it proved , which was a bad result. to make matters worse two anglers had poles snapped by the same jogger (one a 2000 pole of a visiting english angler), and the police had to be called as he did not stop running.

this was the first of four leinster canal festivals planned over the summer , lets hope the others fish better.

good luck
ADAM

that sounds more like an English Canal match (except fish size) than an Irish one Adam.

But your obviously well in tune with the canal being so close with the prediction on weights.
