Ian Rowand Cup

24 DTAA anglers braved the strong westerly winds last weekend on Owel to enjoy a great day out for the Ian Rowand Cup. It is fair to say that conditions were good, with decent cloud cover contributing to a respectable return of 18 fish for the 24 anglers, and many stories of missed and lost fish.

DTAA President Gerry Heaslip took the Honours with 2 fish for 4.31 lb – Competition secretary, Tom hipwell was in 2nd place with 2 fish for 3.715 lb while seasoned angler Jim Keeshan returned 2 fish for 3.525 lb

JP Johnson had a great fish of 2.6 lbs to win the junior section.

Richie Duggan pipped his boat partner, Paul Dunne, to the special weight prize! 

The results are as follows:

Gerry Heaslip is leaping ahead following a number of excellent performances in recent competitions. Tom is nipping at his heels though so Gerry will need to stay on his toes for the upcoming Elvery Cup on Lene on the 12th

Next competition on Lough Lene 12th August.
