Mike Flaherty’s angling centre in Oughterard was the venue for another fantastic day out for young anglers.

Up on 20 young anglers (pictured) competed in a catch and release trout competition.

The Oughterard Angling Club have quite a few more competitions coming on line for young anglers and if you are interested please check www. oughterardanglers.com

On the pike scene Kevin Daly was top rod last Sunday on Lough Glore as they hosted another pike competition.

The lake has produced quite a few pike in recent weeks and also a cracking trout of over 5lbs caught by Pat Daly.

Meanwhile, new national policies are on line for Trout, Pike and Bass.

The launch took place recently in IFI head office, 3044 Lake Drive, Dublin 24.

It’s certainly early days for these policies and all can be checked on www.fisheriesireland.ie
