The Annual Michael Prendergast Memorial Cup Flyfishing Sunday 19th September 2010
Rinn-Shannon & District Angling Club held its annual flyfishing competition on the crystal clear waters of Lough Rowan brown trout fishery on Sunday 19 th September. While most people were sitting down to watch Cork defeat Down in Croke park many brave anglers were already afloat casting their flies into the unknown depths in an attempt to capture the fish that would seal their victory in this prestigious event. Despite the intermittent showers, conditions were perfect with many boats rising fish on their first few drifts. At the end of the day Noel Moran’s catch of 3 trout proved to be the winner. A regular winner at Lough Rowan, Noel’s dedication and knowledge of the fishery proved invaluable as he just edged out Ballinamore angler Tony Gallagher by 3ozs. The results are as follows:
Winner- Noel Moran, Drumsna, 3 trout (3lb- 9ozs)
2 nd - Tony Gallagher, Ballinamore , 2 trout (3lb- 6ozs)
3 rd- Val Fitzpatrick, Mohill, 1 trout (1lb- 15ozs)
Heaviest Fish- Alan Gallagher, Ballinamore , (3lb- 2ozs)
