Ben Entwisle and Dekeisma Pardoe (right) are over in Ireland this week from Middlewich, Chesmire in England.

They are having a ball of a time in Dublin for Ben’s 30th, and we had them out for a days pike on the River Inny. On the day we boated seven lovely pike in mint condition.

*It’s full steam ahead on the winter pike-angling scene. On Sunday November 2nd Cashel Angling Club hold their annual boat competition on Lough Ree. Top prize is a 19ft Sheelin boat. More on this please contact Cashel Anglers on 086-3410123.

*Invasive species are making the headlines once again and recently Waterways Ireland have put together protocols for implementing biosecurity measures for angling events. This is to prevent the spread of Invasive species throughout the Inland Waterways. Check it out on www.waterwaysireland.org
