Erne Fishin 28th December 09

Time to get the woolly warmers on for the regions last event of 2009, this was a great success last year with the best fish falling just over 22lb for local angler Ian Coulter.

The Erne catchment runs through the town of Enniskillen and with plenty of productive swims both bank and boat to choose from any thing could happen.

Boats will be launching at the ‘Round O’ around 8am, but if your as keen as I am and fancy wetting a line before this then we are all meeting up back at the Round O' around 16.30 for one of Gerry’s infamous BBQ’s.

Type 'Erne Tours' into google map for directions.

Hope to see you all there……….

Thursday, 10th Dec 09

True to his word Phil Wakeford took the long journey from England to present an inspirational slide show in Armagh's new fire station on Thursday evening. It was plain to see that Phil has a deep passion towards Esox and even though he enjoys other species he finds nothing more pleasing than a big hen resting on the unhooking mat in all her glory.

After a succesful 3 years as the PAC President Phil continues to show his commitment towards the sport, and with an early retirement on the cards I'm sure there will be many more stories to be enjoyed over a pint of black stuff.

All monies collected at the door were presented to the Fire station's benevolent fund in a way of appreciation for the continued use of the new complex.

RA111's Committee wishes to thank Phil for the effort put in to help support the region and look forward to him visiting next year to attend one of the Regions annual Tope fishin's.
