There was plenty of action last week on the pike and perch scene with some beautiful coloured fish being caught on the troll.

Angler Marc De Jong, from Eindhoven in Holland, is over on holidays with family members and took time out for a spot of fishing.

We trolled on Owel and landed five perch and a cracking pike (pictured above).

*This coming Wednesday, August 6, Lough Owel Anglers will host the Dan Mullally evening competition for trout.

*The 58th World Cup Fly fishing Championship final will be fished tomorrow. Up to 100 anglers who qualified over the Bank Holiday weekend will venture out from Cushlough Bay Lough Mask for the final day.

The World Cup winner will receive a new 19-foot angling boat, a 15hp Yamaha engine, a Loomis Fly rod, a watch, and the World Cup.

Cracking prize!
