Pac Members took part in a clean up operation for the 'poor anglers' who leave all their rubbish behind them. It's a sad fact that a small fraternity of people will not take their rubbish home with them and spoil the natural beauty of the loughs they visit. It is a lot easier to carry it home than bring it so why not do your envoiroment a favour and take it with you.
During the recent fish in Region 111 members took time out to remove rubbish left by 'poor anglers' the council then came and collected it. Robbie Marsh the RO of 111 said " We left the lough a lot cleaner than when we arrived and added he would like to thank all the members who gave up their time to clear up"

Hope Castle 4th April 09
A well attended end of the year bash was had by all, the fishing was secondary to the crack although there was a 16lber and a 12lber caught along with one boat of outstanding fishermen who managed to get 6 fish in, all fish were coaxed by lures, it was good to see faces new and old with three new members all being taken out on members boats. Members from as far as Clare and Dublin attended.
The members took time out from their fishing to fill bags of rubbish that littered the shores of the lake, it was sad to see but nice to give a little back.
The prize giving was an excellent piece of entertainment after a good 3 course dinner, the craic was mighty as a lot of grown men went into a second adolesence.
The winter league was a close fought event and finally the cross dressers team narrowly edged it in a three horse race.
